I love getting caught up on things. I’ve been meaning to get the blog all squared away since the holidays but life intruded and… yikes! So many things piled up on the blog!
I was up waaaay too late last night cleaning up the sidebars of the blog, but I’m super excited about how they turned out. See that over on the right? The 10 in ’10 Teen Chick Lit Challenge logo (designed by the fabulous Jessica of Chick Lit Teens)? (Scroll down a little to see it.) It’s now a permanent fixture on the sidebar along with my constantly-being-updated-because-there-are-way-too-many-awesome-teen-chick-lit-books-to-read widget showing the fab books I’m planning to read for it this year. (I’ll pause while you oooo and ahhh at this stellar list. Go ahead, take your time.)
The E-Nation Ning is an informal Ning community where many of the Egmont USA authors hang out and chat about books and pop culture and stuff with other fun authors and fab readers. I decided to host a 100-Book Challenge there in 2009 sort of out of the blue, and we had a blast. Jennifer Lynn Barnes dusted us all by reading something like five kajillion books, but it was so much fun seeing everyone’s lists grow and hearing what they thought about their favorite books of the year.
The 100-Book Challenge isn’t a competition though. It’s a fun social place to say “Hey, here’s what I’m reading and OMGyoutotallyhavetoreadthisone!” Though you can use spaces between your words if you want. We’re not picky.
Aaaaanywho… this year, I decided that I want a logo. Something really fun and cute that coordinates with the E-Nation Ning design. And I thought, “You know, I have a ton of online buddies who are ridiculously talented. Why not host another logo contest and see what they come up with?”
The 100-Book Challenge Logo Contest!
And so, here I am, telling you about the 100-Book Challenge logo contest and here you are, reading about it and thinking, “Sounds fun, Kay, but I’m kinda busy.” (Or possibly you’re thinking, “Did I see the next American Idol in the auditions yet?” I’m not really sure. You’re kind of a mystery.) But I hear you on the busy, so how about if I offer up a $25 gift card to the bookstore of your choice?
Here are the quick and easy rules:
1) Create a logo in .png or .jpg format with the following information:
2) Logos should complement the E-Nation Ning color scheme and design and be 1200×1200 pixels with a resolution of 300 dpi.
3) Upload the logo to your web site or blog and comment here with a link to where you’ve got it.
4) Final deadline for logos is Thursday, January 21, 2010.
5) Winner will be announced on the You 2.0 blog in late January.
NOTE: All graphics and photos must be owned by the logo creator and entrants agree that if their entry should be selected as the winner, all rights to the logo will become the property of Kay Cassidy, Inc. (Ah, legal mumbo jumbo.)
Let me know in the comments if you’re game for the contest. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! And while you’re checking out the E-Nation Ning design, be sure to join us for the 100-Book Challenge too!
UPDATE 1/28/10: The 100-Book Challenge has been disbanded due to copyright concerns.
