Competition - Win A Paid, 12 Month Blogging Contract

I've just heard of the following competition from Candis magazine, where they're looking for a new blogger. The prize winner will be required to update their blog at least twice a month for a 12 month period, for which they will be paid £150 per month.

Details are as follows:

Would you like to share your news and views with thousands of Candis readers? Then enter our competition to win a 12-month writing contract for our website!
For the past year our fabulous Candis blogger, Melanie Crabb, has kept us entertained with stories of her hilarious family life. Her blogs have gained a huge following - and now it's time to appoint her heir. So we're looking for someone special to take up the metaphorical pen and bring us a brilliant new blog.

The winner will be profiled in a future issue and win a 12-month contract to write for the Candis website. And you'll be paid for your efforts - our winning blogger will get £150 a month for the full year!

If you can craft your day-to-day life into sparkling prose, and know one end of the keyboard from the other, we want to hear from you. Ideally you will be immersed in family life, with children of all ages, and you'll be happy to tell us all about them - not to mention the rest of the family. You might be a mum or a dad, grandma or grandad, married or single, and you might go out to work or be a stay at home parent. Either way we want to reflect the kind of family life that other readers will recognise with (and even sometimes sympathise with).

Whatever you have to say and however you say it, if you think it will entertain and enlighten us then we want to hear from you!

*Terms & Conditions: Closing date for entries is 31st January 2011. The judges' decision is final. The winner will be required to update their blog at least twice a month. Winning payments will be paid monthly for the duration of the 12-month contract.

Good luck!

    Naughty of them though; you have to register,and did anyone else notice that the page where you give your name, address, d.o.b, phone, email - everything! - is unsecured?
    D.o.b wasn't compulsory, mind you. I hope nobody filled it in!
