I had a lot of projects to accomplish today. I began by judging the Wedding stage’s writing contest. I LOVE reading all of the contest entries, and it was a lot of fun to pick a winner. Congrats to LisaGraf for winning! I was going to judge the Having a Baby writing contest… but no one had entered it!
After a struggle to get into the Stage of Life database (for some reason errors abound when I try), I decided to write my entry for this month’s teen/college writing contest about media and media influence. I wrote about Tumblr—what else, really? Afterward, I edited some blog headlines and read a few stories.
I began to tackle the next big project: reaching out to media institutions to let them know about the teen/college writing contest. Since media is such a vague term, it is difficult organizations to contact. I have found two places so far—hopefully I will find more this weekend.
UPDATE: I think the problem with searching for media based organizations is that the term “media” is too broad, and so it is yielding too many results. Despite this problem, I have emailed a few organizations. Otherwise, I spent some time doing some blogger recruitment. I sent out one invitation—hopefully the blogger replies!
