    I would like to enter your contest, I have a blog post about baseball but I don't see anywhere on the contest page to add a comment or anything else. I sent you an email but have not heard from you. Please let me know how I can get my blog posts listed on the contest page.

    Thanks for your persistence, Jo. Seems like the spam filters must have caught your email!
