Field Report -- Check It Out!

I have recently noticed that a lot of bloggers are talking about a relatively new website called FieldReport. I finally decided to check it out for myself, and I have to say that I'm very impressed!

FieldReport is a free site that holds contests for good writing (the winners receive cash awards!) They are looking for "FieldReports" -- "true stories of something you did, saw, or lived through, from your own personal point of view. Some FieldReports describe incredible happenings, but most are just honest stories about moments that meant something in the writer’s life." Since most of you reading this are bloggers, you are probably already writing "FieldReports" everyday. Why not take a look at this site, and enter some of your own writing? It's free to join and free to submit your work, so what have you got to lose? You could even end up winning some cold, hard cash -- and some of the prizes are a lot of money!

Each month, FieldReports' community holds contests to determine the best FieldReport in 21 different categories -- the winner in each category receives $1000. In December, the qualifiers will compete for the grand prize of $250,000 and $25,000 for the TeenReport Scholarship Award. You can read more about the contest rules here.

Now, I definitely do not consider myself a writer in any way, shape or form; however, I do enjoy reading what others have written! While I don't see myself submitting any of my own work, I do see myself visiting this site just to read and review the stories. If you'd like to learn more, there is a Frequently Asked Questions page here. Or, you can get started with the Quick Start option here.
