Writing Contest Website and YouTube Thoughts

I found an interesting weblog the other day. Instead of emailing everyone I know about this I will post it here for convenience:

http://writingcontests.wordpress.com/

The site is very simple and is a collection of contests and current/new literary reviews. Also looks like the site has been up for a while and I am not exactly on the cutting edge of the Internet. 

Now, I usally go to the Poets and Writers Magazine  page but I am finding their site is not always updated and I find quite a bit of old information.

The guy who put it together has a youtube site and I find this type of marketing or sharing of creative literacy or whatever you want to call it very intriguing. I would never create a youtube site like this though I am tempted at times. I wouldn’t want to read my own work though but maybe discuss other writer’s work–maybe link it for classes.
