Post with the Most - 2011

2011 is shaping up to be a year filled with revolution. We all have buried deep inside us a piece of that revolutionary flame burning so brightly along the east coast of Africa today, the same spirit that burned over two hundred years ago here in North America. We all have potential to express our personal epiphanies, our personal revolutions RIGHT NOW!  I am asking - what's yours?

Tom Paine's Ghost is excited to announce 
the second annual POST with the MOST competition.

A $100 cash prize will be awarded for the most powerful blog post freely available out there on the interwebs. 
Post content is limited only by the bounds of imagination.
Keep in mind Tom Paine's Ghost was founded amidst a battle to defend freedom of the press and we hope to echo that theme throughout our pages. 
Check out last year's entries to get an idea of the competition.  

Submissions will be selected and judged on the basis of four criteria:

1. Clarity
2. Originality
3. Integration (at least three forms of media would ideally be utilized, images, text, movies (you tube or vimeo), audio, etc.)
4. Power (the post's ability to motivate readers to action).

Submissions will be accepted until the summer solstice - June 21st, 2011. Please submit a link to your post in the comments section below along with a short note explaining why you feel your post  meets the criteria.  Selected submissions will be linked in a series of submission posts here at TPG and voted on by our panel of citizen judges. The winner will be announced on July 4th, 2011 and will be notified by email. Whether this is your first post or your one thousandth all submissions will be reviewed.

You may also submit your post in an email to

For it's clearly emotional and well written style, for it's challenging nature, and for having the bravery to tackle a tough topic that effects the lives of many scientists (current and future), I nominate Christie Wilcox's post, "I've never been very good at hiding."

I would like to nominate "Single, Saved, and Sewn In: The Gospel of Getting Your Hair Done" by Ashaf from the Crunk Feminist Collective. This post is a history lesson, a religious ray of light, and a smart slice of life for black women in the US. Her smart use of video, photos, and Bibles translations makes for a powerful argument.
This tackles a huge issue in race and feminism in a serious, thoughtful, and funny way, and leaves the reader enlightened and free.

"The church says stay away from those demonic braids because they were a sign of sex work in Paul’s day. The world says get a sew-in—a style that requires braids—because real men dig Beyonce."
