I ran across this contest on another blog: https://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2019/03/23/final-call-for-entries-for-the-2019-bloggers-bash-blog-post-competition/.
The deadline for entries is 23:59 (GMT) on Sunday, 24th March 2019.
What are this year’s competition themes?
Because we’re celebrating our 5th year of bringing bloggers together, one of the themes for this year’s blog post competition is the number ‘five.’
The other theme for the competition is to create, write, and publish a blog post that stands out above all other blog posts. Simply put, we’re asking you to write the best blog post ever which has the theme of ‘Five’.
How many words am I allowed to use in my entry?
You’ve got a maximum of 375 words to work with. Any entries that exceed 375 words (excluding the title of the post) will be disqualified.
The Cost: £5 per entry – all proceeds go to funding the Bloggers Bash. Payment accepted through PayPal only, using the button below. Click the ‘buy now’ button to make your payment.
