Deadline approaching...

I have two entries so far for the new Write This Piece! Contest and am hoping for more. The deadline is Sunday, and the new winners will be announced Monday.
For those of you who have not entered but are hesitant to enter your email, I decided to run a test today and see if I could manipulate the Blogger Contact Form so you guys can send in your pieces without sending in your email.

I created a fake email for you bloggers to use and it works! Now you can send me your pieces without having to worry about giving up your email (I'm no hacker or meanie, but I know it's important to your parents to keep your emails secure.)  so you can enter the writing contest.

Here's how it works:


1) Write your piece

2) Past it into the section that says "Message".

3) Put in either your name or your blogger name on the spot where it says "name."

4) Enter the email notrealfakemail@yahoo.com as your email address


That's it! That way I receive the piece, (I tested it and it worked) with your name on it, but not with your email. I have heard from several readers who told me they weren't comfortable entering their emails in. I hope this helps you all. :)
And now I hope I didn't freak you all out by creating a fake email for you to use... ;) I promise, I'm not a hacker or all those other bad things. ;) It's not a hoax.

Hope to see more entries soon!

    Sorry I didn't enter, but I was way to busy with school this week! :( Is the deadline Saturday, or Sunday?

  3. I'm so sorry that I can't enter this time! And the "fake" email is super cool too! Thanks for being so thoughtful!
