Contest: Can You Be A KnickerBlogger?

I received some swag recently from Dave Berri in the form of his new book, Stumbling on Wins. So instead of giving them to my family as early Christmas gifts (“Hey Grandma – Happy 100th birthday – Here’s another sports book to go with your collection”) I’m going to give them out to my faithful readers. But you’re going to have to earn them.

So I’m running a contest: “Can You Be A KnickerBlogger?” Here’s the gist – you submit content worthy of this site, and I’ll send you a book. You can write an article, breakdown a play, submit an editorial, make a cartoon, photoshop a picture with a caption, make a Venn diagram, create a video ala You-Tube. The options are endless! The only rule is this: I have to like it.

Submit your entry here: stumblingcontest@KnickerBlogger.Net

I’ll run the winners next week beginning the 19th. I have a few copies, so feel free to submit multiple entries. I look forward to seeing what comes my way. :-D

    Mike: Can you write for Knickerblogger?
    Thomas B.: No, but that hasn’t stopped me.

    Hmmm, I’ve written for this blog for over a year now. You’ve never even sent me a Knickerblogger T-shirt. Now you want to give away books? Well then, I submit as my entry what I think is my best work: http://www.knickerblogger.net/3086/mid-season-report-starting-guard.html.

    I assume Dave was kind enough to autograph the work. Oh and for the T-shirt, I’ll take a large.

    You get to write for the best Knick blog in the universe, and you want a book on top of it? By being able to put “KnickerBlogger.Net Writer” on your resume you’ve just increased your lifetime net worth on the open market by 10%. With all that extra loot, you’d think I’d have my “World’s Best Blog Owner” coffee mug by now…

    Yes I guess to have my “name” up in lights for folks to see is reward enough. I do enjoy the work here, just wish I had more time to do it.

    I’m telling you right now, it helped me get tenure.

    I personally attribute my weekly Tuesday gig at the LA Times website (second column up here!) directly to Knickerblogger! ;)

    I have been travelling and just saw the contest now. There is one blog I would like to write, but I won’t be able to do it until this weekend and I think that is too late. Am I correct about that?
