Thank You Thursdays: Every single SYTYCB contestant

Holy shit, you guys are amazing.

Next week, we’re going to announce which of the more than hundred and fifty contestants made it to the next round of So You Think You Can Blog. Right now, we’re still sorting through the more than three hundred blog posts that you submitted, and we’re taking our time because we want to make sure you all get the attention and consideration you deserve.

But before we announce anything, I want to say this: thank you. Thank you to every single person who took the time to write their two blog posts and throw their hat in the ring. There are some amazing entries, some funny, brave, snarky, angry, incisive entries, and that’s everything we want Feministing to be.

It means a great deal to all of us that so many of you want to join our team, and that you took the time to strut your blogging stuff for us. You are all fantastic.

Thank you so much for taking the time, and for your patience with us while we sort through all this awesomeness.

    Thank you Chloe and everyone on the team for the opportunity!

    Just to clarify: you’re still posting entries, yes? My second post was submitted Friday morning and is still labeled “pending.”

    Hi Chloe, two of my SYTYCB entries were submitted minutes of each other but only the first one was posted so far. I definitely didn’t miss the deadline (they were both submitted on Thursday night). Are posts still being reviewed or has the competition completely ended? I want to make sure that I submitted the 2 minimum entries required of the competition. Thanks!

    Are you still going to be posting submissions on the community blog? One of my articles has yet to be posted (it’s still listed as pending in the CMS) although it was submitted Thursday night well before the deadline. I know of several other people who are also waiting for articles to appear.

    Really pumped to hear about the second round! When will you release the info?
