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

PRIZES

Prizes will be determined at a later date.

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

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.

I feel compelled to point out that Neptune is indeed a real place, just one people can't visit.

lewathetoa- Taiwan is a real place that you could go to, so yes, that would be a possible place to use as a blog theme. Hop on getting that PMship quick, though, lest you run out of time! smile.gif

Anyway, there should be some interesting entries.

Who in their right mind would want to go to Mordor?

Better than going to Neptune. smile.gif


I would beg to differ... tongue.gif
Looks fun! Can I assist in helping a Premier member in their blogging?
