Apologies to those of you who, like me, have your blogs registered with the Mumsnet Bloggers Network – because you’ve probably already seen this competition, but for those of you not in the know:
Moneysupermarket.com is running a blogging competition with a prize of £1,000. All you have to do is create a blog post about your dream holiday and include costings (excluding flights) – but keep the total cost under £1,000. Include a picture of your destination too. Mention the competition in your post and then email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org. Closing date is 28th January 2013. Before you start have a look at the full details here.
And if you’re interested in registering your blog with Mumsnet have a look here. Basically, it’s a way of telling more people that your blog exists – and you don’t have to be a mum to join.

Sounds good. Thanks Sally, I was going to ask if it has to be abroad, but I’ll take a look.

I don’t think it has to be abroad, Susan – but best check the rules via the link.

Thanks for the heads-up about joining Mumsnet Bloggers Network – I have joined! The competition sounds interesting but I’m struggling to keep up with my daily writing challenge I can’t imagine writing anything else…

Amanda- there are never enough hours in the day, are there?

Probably too many hours spent surfing Facebook for me! At least my daily writing challenge has made me write in the evenings instead of watching television (well, at the same time usually which probably isn’t doing much for the quality of my writing!) I am finding it’s coming at the expense of my normal writing days though, when I find I’m all out of words. Maybe there aren’t enough words in the day? 😉

Even though I was registered for Mumsnet I didn’t realise about the Bloggers Network – so thanks Sally for mentioning that one! Have applied, so trotters crossed.

Tracy, it took some time to ‘happen’ when I registered with them but it got done eventually.
