Your blog can include [but is not limited to];

-------------------------------------------------------------------

F.A.Q
Read this before asking a question. It may have already been answered.

Q: My premier membership is set to run out halfway through the contest, would I still be allowed to enter my blog before then, and still have it in the competition?
A: You'll be allowed to enter up until the time your PMship runs out. But afterwards you'll be unable to use your blog.

Q:Can it be themed by a travel song? like if using jet airliner, theming your blog around that?
A: This contest is really about places more than transportation. And though we did music last time, if you want to theme it around a place-themed song, you're welcome to do so.

Q: What if you want to do places you want to go to, but can't. Like Mordor. Or Neptune.
A: Let's make them real places.

Q: I know it's more about places over transportation, but what about the two, like, say, places one can travel to by train?
A: That'd be fine.

Q: Should the blog be about 1 place only, or can it be more than one place, without necessarily a common link between the multiple places?
A: Places is fine.

Q: If you see someone's blog with location that you were going to do, could you still make yours?
A: Of course you could still make yours.

Q: So, I just post a link to my blog here? Can I edit the post later with themed entries, or should I make a new post with said entries?
A: You would just edit that post. It's better if you keep all the entries in the same place for easy access.

>You may not make any more themed entries after the contest closes.

I'm a bit confused about this one.

let's say someone does their blog based on Paris and has some Paris-themed entries. once the contest is over, does this mean they can't ever have any more Paris-based entries in their blog or what?

One does not simply blog into Mordor.

You know, this is going to be amusing to watch the next couple of weeks this section. Almost tempts me to pay for Premier just to join in.

Darn you Swert, beat me to it.

I think I'll enter this one. I'm torn apart from two ideas though. I'll have to think about them for a few days.

You can enter themed entries. After the contest entry period closes, you cannot make more themed entries, because we're going to be judging.
