Blogging For Books is live... NOW!
Hello lovelies, Mir here with important Blogging For Books news!
[Funny story: I thought Joshilyn was going to do this post, and she apparently is experiencing technical difficulties in another country, or something. Hahaha! Why aren't you laughing? *crickets chirp* Um, yeah, ANYWAY, we apologize for the delay....]
To refresh your memory, read Joshilyn's post explaining how she's taking over for The Zero Boss for a while. Long story short: Blogging for Books is here, this week, hosted by the lovely Joshilyn, judged by the charming Melanie Hauser, and, uh, micromanaged by yours truly. So! On with it!
This month's theme is SUPERHEROES; whatever that means to you, go for it. Melanie is somewhat of an expert in this area, I hear. Write like the wind, my pretties, and remember to keep it to 2,000 words or less.
Starting now, you have until midnight next Monday (September 12th) (that's the stroke of midnight Monday morning, not the following midnight which is actually Tuesday) to leave a link to your essay in the comments. I will narrow the entries down to the top seven, and Melanie will select three winners from those.
In the interim, perhaps Joshilyn will find a power converter for her computer. STAY TUNED!

Also, I'm happy to post entries on my site for people who don't have their own blogs. Mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to take me up on it.
Here's mine: "Climbing the Walls"
Charming? Moi! Go on, Mir. (No, really. Go on!) Can't wait to read the terrific entries!
Hello everyone, I'm fairly new to the whole blogging phenomena, but I thought I'd give Blogging For Books a whirl anyway. By the way, I've visited some of your posts... great stuff out there!
Oh. My. God. I have three boys and a comic book crazed husband...I could write about superheroes all day long! Almost makes me wish I had a blog. Ah well I'll just enjoy everyone else's. Good luck y'all!
I'm also happy to host if needed. E-mail your entry to me at email@example.com, and I'll pop it up on Edgy Mama.
Deep breath. Whew. Here goes:
ooh! How fun! I'm off to work feverishly on my entry.
Are there rules? Can it be a poem?
Good question, what are the rules? Could some kind person post a link?
I forgot to post the url to my blog entery!
So here it is...
AAAH! I'm sorry... THIS is my URL link...
Here's my entry. It's called Playing With Boys.
This theme fit one of my older posts. Here goes: Creatures of the Night.
Okay, so html doesn't work here! Oops! Here's the URL: http://www.alittlebitofmetosee.blogspot.com/2005/05/creatures-of-night.html
I'm submitting an old post--a true Superhero story:
Hmmmm, Joss and Mir, can y'all list all the entries with active links somewhere? I'm not sure how Jay used to do it, but he did. Made it much easier to check out people's posts.
Thank you so much for picking this up, Joshilyn! Here's mine:
I'm in! But I was so busy canning tomatoes that I just found out about you reviving B4B so - hmm- I'm rushing. I'll keep you posted when I'm posted- thanks for taking it up!
Here is my entry on my blog, Excruciating Minutiae:
"Who Will Save Us Now" is my entry.
Wow. I'm nervous. :)
Oh shoot, I think my URL is screwy (above). This should work:
Josh and Mir...brave women! Here's mine.
Fun topic! My entry is entitled "The Downside of Saving the World."
I just love the other entries!
Here's mine, called "SHOUT It Out!":
Whew! All done. I almost didn't enter, but then inspiration struck me - and it was actually something I had meant to blog about for a long time. Here you go!
I'm here at Edgy Mama's where AF has graciously posted my entry: http://www.edgymama.com/2005/09/hero-of-sorts.html
Here you are, written at the last minute. I am SO not Miss "Jenny-on-the-spot..." (Or Jenny from the Block. But I digress).
Here's my (short) entry. First time! Thanks for doing this!
