Blogging Essays, General

I am proud to announce the Blogging Essay Competition from WeblogToolsCollection.com

I really like to read good articles on blogging. With that goal in mind and to generate more interest in blogging, I would like to offer some prize money to get things started. The competition is set to start tonight and last for 30 days. There are only a few rules and I am offering a couple of prizes. I would love it if you could help judge the competition (and read some good essays).

Rules:

  • 1000 words or more.
  • The essays should be centered around blogging and online media; the topic could be anything related.
  • New essays only. Nothing published previously please.
  • You may publish the essay elsewhere, but you legally allow it to be published here.
  • Competition will be judged only if there are ten entries at the least.
  • I reserve right to reject your essay, I reserve the final say in the results and to cancel the competition at any time.

Prizes (Paypal only):

  1. $150 for the best article
  2. $50 for the runner up

To participate, send me an email with your name, your essay and Paypal details. Enter as many times as you wish. I will add GamerZ’s Post Rating Plugin to each post so readers can weigh in.

PS: My email address is mark at wltc dot net

    Cool, a chance to write about stuff that I can’t really cover in my work blog. Sounds interesting. Thanks.

  2. pcmasters (1 comments.) says:

    Great Idea. This would show some more people, how easy it is to write a blog and how much fun it makes.

  3. lifescapade says:

    sounds interesting! but, what about if Paypal is not available in my place, can I still join? thanks!

  4. Mark (118 comments.) says:

    If Paypal is not accepted, you might have to settle for just a huge applause from the readers and myself. So if you are ok with winning without receiving the cash reward, please feel free to enter the competition.

    I’m going to write up a piece now; I’ll send you an email when I’m done. I’m thinking of pushing into some new frontiers in the war on spam.

This is written by Steven Hodson from Winextra.com I’ve tried several times to start this essay using various hot ticket items as a starting point and in the end I hit the delete button and come back to the why’s and wherefore’s of why I started blogging. Not that the idea of sharing my thoughts or points of view was anything new for me. After all when you’ve been around computers as long as I have; going on the better part of 20 years, you see a lot of the next big thing’s come and go. Long before blogs and even the Internet there was FidoNet which was a network of bulletin board services that hosted conversation groups known as echos. This was my first introduction to online expression of opinions and it was my mainstay until the Internet became the persuasive entity that it is today; but it was an easy transition from them to the NNTP newsgroups both the public (USENET) and the private ones – even to the point that I ran my own set of NNTP newsgroups which where the foundation of what WinExtra is today. It is through this that I got my first taste of what a true online community is but it still didn’t satisfy that urge to stand alone and express my opinions and thoughts about the technology that I was growing up with. So I branched out to a website for WinExtra where I thought I could do just that; but this was before blogs and even before packages like DotNetNuke and the like. This was the time of HTML and uploading individual pages and hoping you got your syntax right the first time around. Was this blogging? Probably not given the terminology today for the practice and definitely not given the software; or lack of it, being used. What it did do though was wet my appetite for when the real thing came along the only thing wrong was that I didn’t catch on early enough what was happening. The reason for this was because like most people who want; or need, to get their words out I was trying to hard to find an […]

  32. […] Yesterday, I came across an article which was submitted for the WLTC Blogging Essay Competition. The post is “Things You Should Avoid Blogging About“. Now, this article really made me scratch my head. What the hell is he advising people ? He is completely out of his mind. Most of content is wrong and practicing them is a big mistake.
