BIG NEWS! Would you like to guest post on Nathan Bransford's blog?

Just a quick FYI before I head out to get the car fixed this morning:

The always informative Nathan Bransford will open his excellent blog up for guest posters next week.  He's invited folks to submit a potential guest blog post by tomorrow afternoon - Pacific time, after which he'll choose his favorites and put them up at Nathan Bransford.com sometime next week.

He held a similar contest back in January, when I was lucky enough to win a guest spot with my entry 'Is your 'but' too big?' 

Nathan has a HUGE readership (over a million visitors per year), so if you're looking to promote yourself and your work, I'd say this is a great opportunity. 

Here's the link if you want to enter: http://blog.nathanbransford.com/2010/10/guest-blog-contest-festival-event.html 

If you do have a go, let me know.  I'd love to read your entry.

Best of luck to everyone who takes part.
