NFC: Re: Writers Contest........
Uhg!! You guys didn't get off yer lazy cans and write a single stitch, but
Dave?!? Tsk Tsk!! Even with all the prizes offered. . . . I vote we give
Dave a prize just the same.
Seriously, though, this was really a good opportunity for an amatuer
writer to see hisor her name in print. Beyond just the potential for
getting a prize, theres much to "win." Theres the chance to share your
experiences with a broad of people, theres the chance just to write.
Writing articles and so on is -=the best=- way to not only share knowledge
but to help bring others into the hobby -- this branch or others. If it
wasn't for Bob Goldstein's AFM articles and Robert Rice's constant
spamming of the newsgroups ( :p at RR), I know I'd probably be content
with my Appistogramma, and never would have cared what was down in the
bottom of the stream (Hell, I'd probably still think, and be happy in my
ignorantfull bliss that those E. olmstedi really were Algae Eaters that
someone introduced, as I'd been told!)
Ok, enough soapboxing for me. :)
