yeah write #57 challenge grid is open

Welcome back! Is this your first time here? Welcome!

How yeah write works

Yeah write has two grids for submitting your very best post of the week: the challenge grid, which is limited to 50 bloggers and is primarily for advanced storytellers with a competitive streak, and the hangout grid, which is open to an unlimited number of bloggers and is primarily designed for bloggers who appreciate our we-read-all-the-posts community spirit of yeah write, but who may not want the pressure of having to doing so. There’s no competition on the hangout grid, so there are no prizes awarded. What I like most is that it still attracts the same wide variety of blog post topics as the challenge grid without needing a fainting couch—it’s read at your own pace. Either grid you choose, you will enjoy.

Summer’s coming!

Summer is a traditionally slow time on the Interwebs due to many factors, among them being, simply, people getting out of the house more and away from their computers. Why blog it when you can live it, eh?

So we can do two things to get ready for the drop in participation: invite your blogging writer friends to join us here for a rollicking good time (just send them a nice email explaining what you love about this place) or, accepting we may not have a full house during the summer, remember not to take the drop off personally—it’s not you, it’s nothing you said. Our regular readers, writers and voters will be back in the fall. In the meantime, we’re just gonna keep going with our core: the yeah write addicts. We make our own party.

Superfecta challenge

There is a standing offer on the challenge grid: over five consecutive weeks without taking a break in linking up, if you win one each of editor’s choice, the three lurkers’ favorites and the popular vote, you’ll earn a full blog makeover with photography by Flood, a new header by Q and a template design by Erica. We’ve had a couple of bloggers come close in the eight weeks since this prize has been available, so it’s doable. Write, edit, rewrite, edit some more, link up your very best stuff five weeks in a row and it can happen. Go for it.

Friday’s winners

  • editor’s choice by Erica M
  • lurker’s favorite by Flood G
  • lurker’s favorite by Emma T
  • lurker’s favorite by Jennifer W
  • popular vote by the entire Interwebs if the entire Interwebs is made up of 250 people
  • random drawing winner of a week-long 125×125 ad space in the sidebar of yeah write

Writing partners

This summer may be a good time for me to formally launch a project I kind of started a few weeks ago. I know some of you would benefit from an online writers’ group that could help you focus on your narratives and tighten your writing a bit. While I get the format together, feel free to email me to tell me you want in, and I will assign you to a group, four at a time.

The group will set its own parameters: how the materials will be exchanged, if you’ll ever meet by video and whatnot. I’m just gonna assign the group members and you guys take it from there. When you email me, I’ll reply with a few questions such as how much time you’ll have to devote to a group, whether you consider yourself to be a writer who blogs or a blogger who writes, all that, then I’ll match you based on the answers. 

Let’s have another wonderful week on the grid.

  1. The Pandora Internet Radio application for the IPhone lets users listen to their own radio station that they have personalized themselves.

    So as according to opportunity, you need to seize all the chances for other competitor by creating applications in a particular
    area. The app which you develop should provide productivity to the user in a very unique way or in a way that improves upon the other productivity apps.

  2. There are many more apps to be followed in the list, but it can be found in the app store and you can found them
    easily as per your requirement. ‘ Data – Vault Password Manager:
    This app is the perfect solution for i – Phone and i – Pad as it works as a perfect secret
    keeper. Sent through high speed broadband or DVD Per Compact disc by using email.

  4. The Pandora Internet Radio application for
    the IPhone lets users listen to their own radio station that they have personalized themselves.

    We know there are about a hundred trillion i –
    Phone apps we could go through and be excited about, but unfortunately
    an article containing such a massive litany would probably
    make your computer explode. Popularity of IPhone applications span form everyday use
    apps to business and corporate applications.

  5. And these are not only the best i – Phone apps spread across multiple categories, they are
    also either free or have perfectly functional free
    versions. Furthermore, if you’re stuck for ideas, you can
    use “Whole Food’s” list of favorite recipes that are tasty and most
    important of all, healthy. Luckily for all
    of the Craigslist lovers there are several splendid solutions.

  6. What’s good about this app is that it turns your i – Phone’s camera into some
    sort of flatbed scanner. The Apple app store is
    famous for containing a large range of different apps, many of which are simple, but
    make profit despite this. By putting in simple facts about yourself,
    this app will tell you what a healthy weight should be.

  7. These apps are custom made are focused around the company they are built for.
    I like the way it includes the Developer’s notes first and then their
    review. In fact, some evidence shows that as many as 50
    per cent of i – Phone users find new apps through recommendations of friends.

  8. Congratulations Pish Posh. Your blog is really awesome. My personal favourite this week was wine and yoga.

  9. Great stuff again this week! Can’t wait to read the rest, then check out the hangout grid.

  13. This is my first visit to Yeah Write. This looks like a great place to hang out. One question, is the weekly link up a free topic link? Most places give a topic and you write about that and then link. Just want to make sure I didn’t miss the topic if there was one!

  14. First time entering!
