My New Business Venture: Win Prizes for Having an Opinion

This may seem like a shameless plug for my own product (which it is), but I thought all you RedStaters would find this interesting.

I’ve begun a new project, along with a few friends, to create www.juxtaposd.org. The concept is simple: You write an essay. 500 words or less. If it’s good, people will vote for it. If you get enough votes, you move up through the bracket until you get to the top. You then win a prize. They’ll start out small, like $10 iTunes cards and such, but the more visitors we get, the bigger our prizes can be (most of our money comes from ad revenue).

The main reason I’m posting this, though, is because I wanted to try to encourage RedStaters to contribute to the site. Being on the internet, the site will inherently but slowly become liberally biased… and I want to have a balance. I encourage all of you to come out and write in a good, short article representing exactly what we as conservatives believe in — and your doing so will, in itself, promote and represent the freedom of speech and ideas that we as Americans share.

Also, if you’d like to help support the site financially, you’ll find a “Donate” button on the homepage which will walk you through the steps of sending funds. I’m not here for a bailout, though, so I’d like to ask, as a courtesy, that any donations stay under $15.00. I’d like to try to run the business myself, without too much help from others.

Thanks, RedState!
