yeah write #46 is open

So, did you hear? We’re into our second week of six weeks of prizes here at yeah write, and this week introduces unlimited spots on the grid and the yeah write superfecta plus one.

The unlimited spots are for the next five weeks only. And the more people who link up, the better your chances are for winning one of the prizes.

Blog design element prizes!

All of the details are in this post. Through cumulative points earned from yeah write #46 to yeah write #50, you can win one of four blog design elements:

  • a new WordPress theme installed and mildly tweaked by Erica
  • a new header [any platform] designed and installed by Q
  • an 8×10 print or digital photograph with custom elements by Flood
  • a complete review of your current blog with recommendations on how to improve your content, writing, search engine visibility and design by my Blogging Bash partner Alexis

Superfecta plus one!

Our new superfecta plus one works like this: if you link up five consecutive weeks and, in those weeks, win one each of editor’s choice, Flood’s lurker’s favorite, Q’s lurker’s favorite, popular vote and comment karma, you’ll earn the whole shebang: the new blog template, custom header, custom photograph and complete site analysis designed to catapult your blog to blogging stardom.

Blogging stardom not guaranteed, but you’ll look good while working your butt off to get there. It must be five consecutive weeks that you link up, and you must earn one each of the awards during the five weeks. This prize is a standing offer that begins today.

Must-read yeah write links for the next five weeks and beyond

The licenses have been purchased from my household budget as a thanks for y’all keeping me company for the past, well, what seems like forever. You guys are awesome.

    So many good posts this week! Going for the random-drawing win to give me that push to move from Blogger to WordPress. . .scary stuff.

    Not only am I a yeahwrite virgin, I’m any kind of writing project/contest virgin. But I hope people won’t be too gentle – it’s all about getting better and learning to use criticism. Thanks for having such a welcoming platform!

  • Janice [Wed] 29 Feb 12 at 4:29 pm

    You raised the submission limit from 50? Wow. Where do you find the time to read them all? I am just stopping by to say hello and to apologize for not visiting anyone yet. The baby and I are sick – was totally not planning for that. So I will be spending time in bed sleeping when he’s sleeping. Nap time now and the other 2 kids are asleep too. I better go….

    Have fun and good nite!

    • Andi Brown [Thu] 1 Mar 12 at 11:09 pm

      Hope they feel better, I’ve got one of those too. Poor things!

  • Jamie [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 11:35 pm

    looky looky at all those picture thumbnails! You tip, we listen! Happy week 46!

  • stephanie [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 9:02 pm

    Hi Erica. My first time here. I think I did everything right – except – I typed my name instead of the title of the blog post, She’s Not My Mom…. Any way to edit that? I’ll know better next time! Thanks!

    • Erica M [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 9:05 pm

      Welcome to yeah write! I’ll change it for you. Have fun hanging out with us this week!

  • BtchyGirls [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:37 pm

    This one doesn’t work either. Help, Erica…please lol

    • BtchyGirls [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:42 pm

      WTF is wrong with me???? Someday I’ll get it right.

    • Erica M [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:44 pm

      I got it fixed. The Inlinkz app is in beta testing today and some links won’t work until I remove the http:// prefix. I took it off yours and it’s ready.

      • Bitches in the Burbs [Wed] 29 Feb 12 at 8:41 am

        Thanks hon…you’re the best!!!

  • BtchyGirls [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:36 pm

    I screwed up the first one I entered, shocking I know. So number 2 doesn’t work, number 1 does. Aren’t you thrilled we submitted again!!! ***hope my sarcasm is obvious***

    • Erica M [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:37 pm

      I caught it and deleted the second one. Have fun visiting the other blogs this week!

  • BtchyGirls [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:32 pm

    We’re baaaaack! 🙂

  • Miranda@becomingmyideal [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 7:33 pm

    Saw the tweet and thought I would stop by to enter for the prize. 🙂

  • Andi Brown [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 2:49 pm

    Pick me! Pick me!! I sadly need a new theme!!

  • Susan [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 2:47 pm

    Ack! Sorry, y’all, I’m really confused… Erica, I feel like a complete idiot, but I can’t find the button to link up now that I’ve pasted the badge into my post (also, equally sorry about the random comment that’s actually my week 46 entry, how did that happen?). Could you help me? Feeling very clueless… -susan

    • Erica M [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 3:08 pm

      Sorry for the confusion, Susan. Since you already had the correct coded badge on your post, I was able to add it myself. Have fun with us this week!

  • Megan Lawing [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 2:19 pm

    I also want to be included in the theme giveaway. 😉

  • Shannon from mynewfavoriteday [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 1:03 pm

    Congrats on expanding the Linkup Erica! So exciting and thanks for all you do to try to create an awesome place for everyone to meet up each week. Getting back in the mix this week:)

  • Brandy @ Momwich [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 11:43 am

    I thought I would be back all full force this week, but no. Turns out I get to go for the consultation for another jaw surgery tomorrow and now my website is moving at a snails pace. I’ve been tripping all over life for the past month. Hope you’re doing well! I’m trying to catch up!

  • Megan Lawing [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 11:35 am

    The linkup is getting big! How exciting!

  • Stephanie Sikorski [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 11:22 am

    I’m back for round #2
    and am getting the sense this could in fact be totally addicting.

  • Jennifer [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 10:31 am

    Having trouble linking up this morning. Gotta get my Yeah Write!!

  • Katie [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 9:59 am

    Happy to be a part of the friendliest writing community on the web, and so thankful for a host who makes things more and more interesting around here. Thanks for the opportunity for prizes!!

  • a Book for My Daughter [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:42 am

    Hey Erica! It feels like it’s been ages since I linked up. Thanks for organizing such an incredible list of potential prizes—it’s so exciting! I’m looking forward to sitting down and reading some great blogs. Thanks!

  • HouseTalkN [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:33 am

    Thank you so much for hosting! I really should step away…I ignored my family for hours last week so I could read all the posts!

  • Kindred Adventures [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:13 am

    I can not wait to see all the link ups thins week. Unlimited number of link ups?! Is that crazy talk?!! Such an amazing group of bloggers you pull in here and just so much fun to read and get to know. Also one of the kindest group / link up I have been a part of. Luck to have a place like this to get together…. and Erica…well she’s certainly a keeper.

    So while I still have nothing to link up with… nothing that meets my standards for linking up with this group I will continue to be a yeahwrite groupie! Is there a button for that?!!!

  • Lenore [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 8:13 am

    Good morning! Just letting you know I am paying attention. Please include my name in the list of wanna-be winners. Thank you!!

  • deborah quinn [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 5:37 am

    Yeah write just keeps getting better and better. I got so excited that I was going to be able to linkup early instead of late, I’m using an old picture of my now pre-teen chlid…when he was a curly haired drooling toddler. Funny, I thought he was hard to manage then…I realize now that the ability to put one’s child in the crib and then close the bedroom door is a LOT easier than, you know, conversations and reasoning and crap like that. I will send my two kids to you if you send your three kids to me. Be warned: two boys equals like an entire pack of meercats. happy yeahwrite, everyone!

  • Kim Pugliano [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 1:33 am

    FYI – I want it. I want the theme or the header or the whatever it is. THAT’S RIGHT I HAVE AN ELEGANT THEME BUT IT’S NOT ENOUGH.

    I want it all.

    P.S. I will be back tomorrow around 9 or 10ish California time to link up. There had BETTER be a space for me. I can’t finish my post until then.

  • Alison@Mama Wants This [Tue] 28 Feb 12 at 12:52 am

    I’m taking your advice and putting my ugly mug as an avatar here.

    Happy linking, reading & commenting everyone!
