Note to the contest winners: Please e-mail me and let me know your snail mail addresses for delivery of your prizes. Thanks!
Round 11 of the writing contest begins today! Get busy writing and us your article. Remember that articles that relate practical “how to” skills for survival will have an advantage in the judging. Since SurvivalBlog is “text only” for the convenience of readers that use mobile devices, please do not include illustrations with your article. (Although articles with URL links to images housed at your own web site for at least three years are acceptable.)
