Who knew lists could be so popular? My “List of Lists” page on my blog has had thousands of readers since I first posted it back in August. Lists are short, easy to read, interesting, and I guess that explains their popularity. I hope my next contest is as popular, and I’d like to open it to all APN readers and bloggers.
This contest is a true competition with prizes for first, second, and third places. Your challenge is simple. Write a list. My only guideline is that the list is somehow connected with survival and preparedness. The deadline is Tuesday, February 9, and winners will be announced and the winning lists posted beginning Friday, February 12.
The first place winner will receive a collection of Pampered Chef products, cookbooks and spices worth nearly $120! Second and third place winners will each receive smaller packages worth $40 and $30. Actually, every qualifying list will be a winner because it will be posted on, “A List of Lists,” along with your name and a link to your blog or website for thousands of readers to enjoy.
Email your finished list to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to write, “List Contest”, as the email subject.
To summarize these rules, here’s a list. hehehe
* Submit a list of anything related to survival and/or preparedness. Creativity and humor are fine, as is stark, foreboding pessimism. Whatever.
* You can submit up to two entries.
* EMAIL them to email@example.com. Please do not submit them as comments.
* Submission deadline is midnight (CT) on Tuesday, February 9. I’m extending my deadline by one day for APN readers/bloggers.
* Winning lists will be posted on Friday, February 12, and the winners will be notified by email.
* All lists will be posted on, “A List of Lists”, with the author’s name and a link to their website, if there is one. The author’s name will be the email address used when submitting the list unless you tell me otherwise, and if you have a blog or website, it’s up to you to include that information.
* Prizes will be shipped out the following week.
Good luck, and may the best list-writers win!! Now get busy!!
