If you're already writing eloquent comments in response to some of my blog pieces (you know who you are) and you've always wanted to publish something, I want you to strongly consider submitting a written piece to ViewsHound (www.viewshound.com) before October 16, 2011. You could win a $250 cash prize for doing so. And, even more importantly, so could I . . .
During my three months of submitting written pieces to ViewsHound, I've earned $260 in prize money and I've never had a piece rejected. They are very good about publishing various points of view so even if (especially if!) you disagree with something I've written, this is your chance at rebuttal. I'm a big advocate of written expression and I think that more people have this skill languishing inside of them instead of being developed. Writing is like any other skill in life: the more you do it, the better you get and the more confident you feel. So . . . get back on that horse and ride.
Here are the official instructions:
"Go to a great site I use called ViewsHound, at http://www.viewshound.com, sign in and enter "Debutopia" for “Where did you hear about us?” Then submit an article, photo or cartoon for them to publish. Whoever recruits the most new authors wins $250, and your submission could win you $250 too, in addition to ViewsHound’s daily cash prizes. Please do it today and let’s see if we can win!"
On Monday, October 17th, 2011 the $250 prize money came my way! I'd like to thank you if you were one of my readers who submitted a written piece to ViewsHound. If you didn't submit a piece, remember that it's never too late to start writing.
