Yep, it’s time for another $100 blog pitching contest! I’ll give you all the details of how to enter at the end of this post — but first, please read our guest Chana Roberts’ excellent advice on how to kick ass and win. 😉
So, you’ve found Sophie’s blog. You’ve seen the Pitchfest posts – they’re really cool. They make you drool. Oooh, a $100 prize for contributing a post, on a blog like this?
It’s a once-in-a-season contest. Pitchfests – and guest posts – are only accepted once every three months.
You want to be the winner. You want that $100 prize, and you want to show your post off. But you don’t feel qualified to enter.
Like, seriously. You’re just starting out, and you haven’t even been able to get a guest post published yet, much less find a client willing to pay more than $0.02 per word.

And you know what? *That* is your biggest problem.
