July is always a fun month and this year it's not only fun but crazy busy. Besides this little blog here I've got me a birthday (sigh), BlogHer in SanFrancisco, girls camp, cub scout camp and scout camp, a remodel on the house and somewhere in there we're going to try some clam digging and camping. Yea I'm swamped.
But it's all good stuff right? It's not as if I've got funerals, surgeries, root canals or tax audits scheduled so it should be busy but it should also be pretty fun. So maybe you'll understand why this month's topic appealed to me and maybe it will appeal to you. How about writing a post on "Wonder Woman"? This could be your own idea of what a hero is, your own take on parenthood and its expectations or you could write about the Wonder Woman in your life. Take whatever tone you wish but this ought to provoke some thoughts out there. If you'd like to take the same angle but focus on the male view of things feel free to do so--Super Man is perfectly acceptable as well.
If you'd like to participate here are the rules:
1. Write a post or find one in your archives on the topic, "Wonder Woman" and email your post's permalink (that's the URL of your individual post--not the URL of your blog--usually found by clicking on the post title and copying the URL that appears) to me at: scribbit at gmail.com any time through Wednesday July 16th. If you fail to meet the July 16th deadline I will still happily publish your link with the list of entries but it will not be judged. I reserve the right to reject submissions if they fail to meet the topic or if they contain objectionable content.
2. Publish a link to the contest page here at Scribbit in either your entry post or in a separate post. I'm not picky how you do this, just give the contest a little mention as a courtesy and nod back. Don't stress over it or anything.
3. Check back here on Friday July 18th when I will post a complete list of the entries along with the Write-Away Winner and any honorable mentions our judge sees fit to award. I'll be at BlogHer that week living it up but I'll still be posting.
Our guest judge this month is Damselfly from the wonderful blog Growing a Life who has captured my blogging heart for the last two years as I've read about her life and her son's growth. You'll love her I promise.
And to go along with our superhero theme, the prize this month is the best one yet--ladies and gentlement you're writing for a Zune. Yes, a Zune "Action Bundle" which includes a 30 GB MP3 player complete with arm band holster (or "DLO Action Jacket") courtesy of Best Buy. It's a hot hot red and oh so sexy. All it needs are little gold and blue accents and you'll be a regular Diana Prince or Clark Kent on the jogging trail.
But besides this the winner and all runners-up or honorable mentions (I leave that up to the judge to award them) will also get to take home this attractive Write-Away Winner button which he or she may display in their sidebar if they wish.
Good luck, I look forward to reading your entries.
