yeah write #49 is open

Paraphrasing @unvirtuousabbey from Twitter: for those of us recovering from last week’s spring break and for those of you enduring it this week, we pray.

If you’re into yeah write this week, we’re totally here for you. For those of you giving it second thoughts, I lost so much hair while my kids were home with me, I actually began daydreaming about the one-way two-hour commute to my old job. Sitting in four daily hours of Houston traffic actually started to seem preferable to entertaining three bored, antagonistic rugrats, so if you can’t be with us, we’ll totally understand. 

Try to fit us in, though. Yeah write #48 averaged 50 extra page views for each blog that linked last week and was a source of immeasurable support and feedback for the bloggers. If you have good stuff to share, your departmental meeting can wait, and your kids can find their own way in the kitchen. All your words are belong to us.

If this is your first time here, welcome! Please have a look around. If you’re a writer who blogs or a blogger who writes, this is the right place for you, so jump right in and link up with us. Tell us a good story, we’ll love you forever.

This is the next-to-last week for unlimited spots on the yeah write grid. Starting with yeah write #51, we’ll go back to closing out submissions at 50. We’ll still want your best stuff, not your rushed stuff, so please remember: reading, commenting and voting—perfectly legitimate ways to improve your writing and grow your community—are always in style at yeah write even if it’s not your week for linking.

Yeah write has given away four Elegant Themes WordPress templates in four weeks, and this will be the fifth week. Leave a comment on any yeah write #49 post before Friday letting me know you want to be entered into the drawing, and you’re entered into the drawing. It’s that simple.

Yeah write #49 is open.

    For some reason, I can’t leave comments on blogs that use 🙁 It’s making me crazy. I tried leaving a comment on Mama Mzungo and Yep, This Is My Life, but captcha is on, and it Chrome isn’t letting me put in the code. Same thing with Safari. It looks like I’ll only be able to leave comments on WordPress (or other hosted) blogs. Just wanted to share in case anyone who uses wants to turn off the protection.

      Update: If I don’t use my WordPress ID, I can leave a comment. Thank goodness!

    Please enter me in the drawing. And thanks for putting together the link-up.

    BLARG! So many great submissions this week! I’m not even half way through and I want to vote for way more than three. I love yeah write every week whether I’m entered in it or not. Just wanted to say thx for putting these together Erica.
    ps: I agree about the math captcha thing.

  • Ado [Wed] 21 Mar 12 at 9:57 am

    There are some captcha-code folk amongst your peeps. Is there any way to convince people to do away with the captcha bs? I hate it. Also there is even one who makes you do MATH to publish a comment. I can barely add my 1’s. Math captchas should be banned.

    Please pretty please with cherry on top, enter me in the contest. 🙂

    p.s. because I was in so many meetings today, I am here w/o a post. LOL I will be reading others instead, at least.

    Dear Erica,
    I would like to be in the random drawing.
    Thank you!! (smile)

  • Megan Lawing [Tue] 20 Mar 12 at 4:15 pm

    I want to be entered for the theme!! 🙂

  • Kristin [Tue] 20 Mar 12 at 10:48 am

    I’m so embarrassed! I promise not to rush this week. It may mean getting in under the wire, but that was true when I did rush anyway. I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s submissions again.

  • christina [Tue] 20 Mar 12 at 10:33 am

    hey i just accidentally linked LOG’s entry twice. she was having trouble linking so i did so and did so twice. oopsie.

    huge sigh of relief to be back in the yeahwrite enclave. whew. it’s cold out there in the interwebs, where no one knows your name unless you’ve got the yeahwrite stamp. You’re like the best curator going, Ms M (and as a writer you’re no slouch either).

  • Louise Ducote [Tue] 20 Mar 12 at 5:51 am

    If I don’t win the random drawing this week my streak of forty-four years of never winning any randomly-chosen anything will be unbroken, so that’s its own form of winning, right?
