Hello to 2008, it's hard to believe I've been running this monthly contest for a year now. It's been fun and I'm looking forward to another great year and more well-written entries from around the blogging world. This month's theme (suggested by our guest judge) is "The Great Escape" and could be anything that tackles the topic of escaping. Vacations? Near-death experiences? Graduation? However you'd like to interpret this is fine by me.
If you'd like to participate here are the rules:
1. Write a post or find one in your archives on the topic, "The Great Escape" and email your post's permalink to me at: scribbit at gmail.com any time through Sunday January 20th. If you fail to meet the January 20th deadline I will still happily publish the link to your post and include it in 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.
3. Check back here on Tuesday January 22nd 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.
Our guest judge this month is Robin from Around the Island, a wonderful mother, writer and blogger living in Tel Aviv with her husband, son and daughter.
This month's prize is a copy of The Double Musky Cookbook, the official cookbook for Alaska's famous Double Musky restaurant where I've enjoyed many a calorie. It's a terrific place to eat and the drive down to Girdwood is one of the prettiest in the world--how can you beat a combination like that? The book has 250 of their famous recipes in that amazing mountain-Cajun style with an Alaskan seafood flair and you'll love it, I've posted one of the recipes for Double Musky Cake and let me tell you it's fabulous.
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.
