Can I submit a post from my archives? I wrote a post about a year ago that would be perfect.
The challenge grid accepts submissions written specifically for each weekly challenge. Your post cannot be dated any earlier than the Sunday before the Tuesday the challenge grid opens. That Sunday is usually when the badges are published. See the speakeasy FAQ for its policy on archived posts.
What’s the yeah write challenge grid?
The yeah write challenge grid is a collection of bloggers each week who gather from Tuesday to Thursday to read a maximum of 50 blogs on the grid and comment on the ones they like. There’s a vote—not a clicking contest; we read then vote responsibly. Done right, it’s a wonderful way to find your blogging tribe.
Read 50 blogs in two days? No way.
Way. That’s why it’s called a challenge.
Can I enter more than one post?
You can submit one post to the challenge grid, one to the speakeasy, and one to the gargleblaster. But you cannot submit more than one post to any one grid, even if the posts are from separate blogs.
What’s the invitational grid?
The invitational is a secondary grid created and curated by the yeah write editors. Throughout the week, we select submissions from the entries on the challenge grid and, occasionally, from around the Web, and our favorites are published on Thursday with a jury prize winner announced on Friday.
How can I add my post to the invitational grid?
You can’t. You can submit your post to the challenge grid and, if a yeah write editor falls in love with it, that editor will add it to the invitational for you. Either way, your post will be available on the challenge grid for comments and the popular vote by the general yeah write community. It is, as we say, a win-win.
More details, please.
