Day 1 of the Reviews and Predictions Group Writing Project is over and 55 submissions have arrived in my inbox from readers who are competing for the $2500 in prizes.
This round includes a few posts from our sponsors themselves (they’re not in the running for prizes but wanted to participate in the fun too). Alongside them we have a wide array of posts ranging from haikus, humorous pieces, lots of predictions and quite a few posts reflecting upon different niches this year. Together they make an interesting read.
Thanks to our sponsors – Rob Schaumer, DeveloperCube, eMoms at Home, Thrive Web Marketing, Dave Taylor, Poker on a Mac, Information for Her Australia for Australian Women, The Blogging Times, bloglinkr and 451 Press (see below for the full list of prizes).

they are pretty much in the order they were received in.
I just submitted mine. A lot interesting posts on the day 1 already. This would be a fun weekend of bloghopping.

Cool… thnx Darren! This is the first time that I’m being listed on another site! I had really fun writing about a post for this group writing project.
Hope you come up with brilliant ideas like this!
I’m loving this list and have even commented on a few. I can’t wait to read the next group. Are ya only posting them once a day?
