Hi everybody, another weekly update on the Headline of the Year contest. As most of you know, I'm kicking off the contest a little early this year. Unless major things mess up, the first three contests will be next week, as follows:
First Quarter (mainpage) contest: Monday, Dec 5
Second Quarter (mainpage) contest: Wednesday, Dec 7
Third Quarter (mainpage) contest: Friday, Dec 9
I'm out of town from Friday afternoon through the following Tuesday, so there may be a bit of a wait to get the final contests out, but my goal is to finish up all of the headline contests by December 15.
I've already run the first quarter subtab Headline of the Year contests and I'll run another full set tomorrow in Totalfark, with hopes of knocking another one out early next week. Keep an eye out for those.
