Hello All

Just a heads up, I have four entries in the open rhyming contest but all are disqualifications at this point.

Please make sure that you're looking over the rules for the contest and what is required for the poem content it self. If you're one of the four who have entered do not worry I'm not going to remove them until it's time to judge so you have plenty of time to look over and see if you can make any changes.

I don't usually do blogs alerting people to the missing of contest  rules but because this style is not familiar to so many I'd like to give you as much opportunity to grasp the concept as possible.

Morning Jim, Each person enters their poem on the Poetry Soup contest page. When you click on the "contest" link this contest is entitled "So You Think You Can Rhyme" ;)
