Welcome to 2011 Blogging Week! All posts will be linked from here. Information about what blogging week actually is is available here.

Prize Draws!

To celebrate Blogging Week we will be holding a number of prize draws. All prizes will be novels – many written by SpecFicNZ members – which have been generously donated to the society. There will be a Readers’ Draw, a Posters’ Draw, and a vote for Best Blogger.

To enter the Readers’ Draw, simply post a comment to this message at some stage during Blogging Week. Each comment goes into the draw, so the more you comment the higher your chances of winning a book.

To enter the Posters’ Draw, simply provide a link for a Blogging Week post you have written (by emailing the link to specficnz(at)gmail.com). Each link that appears on this page will go into the draw, so the more often you post the higher your chances of winning a book.

Finally, we intend to hold a vote for Best Blogger once the week is over. Please keep this in mind while reading these posts.
