There are approximately ten days left in the Blogging Essay Competition and there have been two entries so far. A lot of people have been very helpful in reviewing these essays and many people have posted helpful comments and suggestions for the authors. However, we are still far shy of the ten entries required to judge the competition.
A couple of authors have expressed their concern for irking the wrath of readers or making mistakes in their commentary that they will later regret. I am sure that I am not the first to say that every blogger has made a mistake at one time or the other and paid dearly for it. I admit that I have made many of them but I have not let them stop me. The power is in accepting your mistake, correcting yourself and making change to ensure it does not happen again. I believe that is all part and parcel of this wondrous world of instant publication that we call blogging.
So where is your entry? Did I lose you entry in my hordes of spam or is the threat of a bad grade the only way to prompt essay production? Is the 1000 word minimum too daunting? Is the reward sum too paltry (I already know the answer to that)? Or is the fear of public scrutiny too much? Ante up people, its your turn to write and its our turn to read.
