Book Me for TBAC

Conceived with one goal in mind The Blog Award Challenge wants to encourage good writing and recognize distinctive voices floating in the overwhelming expanse of the blogosphere.

It is envisioned to be a convenient place for bloggers to discover each other, linked together by pleasure for well-penned entries that feature strong points of view, style, humor, arguments or sheer entertainment value.

However there is one significant detail we haven't openly disclosed: Since the very moment of conception of The Blog Award Challenge we were already thinking of publishing a book*. Yes a book compiling the best written submissions in TBAC. We feel that this book project will be a worthwhile documentation of the pioneering bloggers whose creative talents outshine the flash of new technology. Besides, cash prizes are easily spent but being included in the TBAC book project is a tangible testament of talent that no passing technology and glitzy events can effectively capture.

More details at TBAC site.

i may be wrong but that's selling out man!...

I dunno but why not look for your own publisher then get published...Again I may be wrong but man that's selling out...

e - it's difficult to get published especially in the Philippines where the abundance of talent is inversely proportional to the number of publishers willing to take a chance :-) we hope with the TBAC project we can discover truly good talents worthy of publishing :-)

*looks at the essay above and snickers*

I should start a blog again - without telling you. Then join this TBAC thing just to mess with your heads. :D

You guys should really create questions for the TBAC centering around such important mindboggling questions as:

Is Superman Gay? Prove/Disprove.
Why do men have nipples?
What is Grimace.... No... Really?
Why does Donald Duck have no pants?
Does LoudCloud still have abs?
