So You Think You Can Blog starts today!

Our contest to find Feministing’s next Contributor starts today! There are already some great entries over on the Community blog, so go and check them out!

For those of you who are entering, a few reminders about the rules:

Two posts per contestant between today and this Friday. Each post should say “A SYTYCB entry” at the top and include the SYTYCB logo. Then, the Feministing team will pick several finalists, and those finalists will have another chance to show us their stuff before we pick a winner.

And, in answer to the questions that came up in response to the announcement of the contest:

– there is no word limit, but brevity is the soul of everything

– you can submit something that has been published elsewhere

– you can write more than two posts if you want, but we can only guarantee that we’ll read your first two posts

– there is no age limit, upper or lower

– Contributors aren’t paid, but they are compensated: in addition to providing access to a platform that reaches hundreds of thousands of readers, being a Contributor also helps facilitate other paid writing gigs, as well as an opportunity to be part of our college tour, which is paid.

And now, let the blogging begin!
