Group Writing Project – Day 1

Posted By Darren Rowse 19th of December 2006 Pro Blogging News 16

200612181504Day 1 of the Reviews and Predictions Group Writing Project is over and 55 submissions have arrived in my inbox from readers who are competing for the $2500 in prizes.

This round includes a few posts from our sponsors themselves (they’re not in the running for prizes but wanted to participate in the fun too). Alongside them we have a wide array of posts ranging from haikus, humorous pieces, lots of predictions and quite a few posts reflecting upon different niches this year. Together they make an interesting read.

Thanks to our sponsors – Rob Schaumer, DeveloperCube, eMoms at Home, Thrive Web Marketing, Dave Taylor, Poker on a Mac, Information for Her Australia for Australian Women, The Blogging Times, bloglinkr and 451 Press (see below for the full list of prizes).

There’s still 3 more days to get your submissions in and join the fun. Just follow the procedure outlined here.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in Day 1. Looking forward to seeing tomorrow’s batch.

Now as promised – here’s the prize list to inspire you to enter!
