Okay folks. We have five excellent articles, if you haven't read them yet, find them all on pages one or two of this thread. You may vote for one article and if you submitted an article you can't vote for your own. Happy voting!

I dunno, on a free-for all writing competition we already have so few people who participate and vote on the articles....if you pick a set topic it might end up with just you and Jabbsy taking part. Let's say photography, I'll probably snap a pic of the sunrise (on one of those nights I get back very late/early) and send it over that's as much as I know about photography. :hehe:

A topic might make it better, purely in the sense that a topic could inspire one's passion. If I have a passionate opinion about that topic, I am much more inclined to write something. I check facebook all the time and scroll through all kinds of useless stuff and comment on very little. Usually, the thing that drives me to take the time to comment is a post about a topic about which I am passionate. It is much easier to think about, articulate, and ignite passion about something if there is a specific cue mentioned. :D

Having said that, idk where to begin with which topics to pick :rofl:

Also I think when there is a topic it's interesting to see how different people interpret it. It could be quite a wide topic. It's fun thinking if a slant. hmmmmmm. I'm getting a topic idea!
