Have you seen a particularly creative post submitted for the ‘Something A Bit Different’ day (Day five of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week). If you think you have seen an especially fantastic post, where the blogger has been really creative and thought outside the box, please nominate it here. Choose carefully, as you can only nominate one post!
Note: The form below has been set up to ensure that a website can only be nominated once, so if you get a message saying that the information has already been received, or is not unique, then rest assured that the post you are nominating has already received a nomination and will be looked at. This is because during the photography competition a few people put links from their posts to the nominations form with a message saying ‘please nominate me here!’, and so the system became overwhelmed with duplicate entries for those posts, and they became really difficult to sort through as the form submissions ended up in the many-hundreds, whereas it isn’t about popularity but creativity, and it does not matter if a post has one nomination or a hundred to get through to the next round.
So, what is this competition about?
It’s back, and this time it hasÂ the most amazing of prizesÂ (look for the prize for ‘most creative post’). This was a massive success last year, and for many it was the highlight of the Blog Week, so this year you are challenged, again, to find a new way of blogging.This is an experimental blogging day to try and push your creativity in blogging to the same level that you perhaps push your creativity in the items you create.There are no rules of a topic to blog about but this post should look at a different way to present content on your blog. This can take one of many forms, but here a few suggestions:
- Wordless, photographic post
- Video blog post
- Cartoon/sketch of an idea
- Write about a subject from a different perspective (for example, you could write about a day in the life of a knitted sock from the point of view of the sock).
- Interpretive modern dance (why does someone always suggest this?)
- A poem or piece of rhyming verse
- Stop motion animation
The grand prize for Knitting and Crochet blog week, as donated byJenACKnitwearÂ andÂ FyberspatesÂ will be given to the most creative blog post after a nomination and voting round, and due to the immensity of the prize it is really worth putting Â bit of time and effort into this. At the very least you will get an amazing blog post out of it.
Ten posts will be chosen to go through to the voting stage, where the winner will be selected to receive the grand prize, Prizes are also available for second and third places. Nominations will close in one week’s time, at midnight BST, 4th May, 2012.
And that’s my post for Day 5 of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week because it is, well, something a bit different.
