    Ah how exciting!! The link isn’t working right now, and Refinery’s website says nothing about the contest, so I hope something goes up soon!

    Aww sounds like a good idea to get to find out some new awesome blogs and give a platform to those hat need more exposure… y’know the whole silent but amazing blogs that no one hears about!

    Thanks for posting about this! It’s been fun going through the entries and discovering new blogs–whether already popular or still waiting to be discovered.

    This is such a great contest, but unfortunately it’s quite limiting, as only residents of the US can enter. Is it not a little conceited to assume that the ‘Next big Style Blogger’ comes from America? So many good blogs from Europe, Australia, New Zealand! Such a pity all these fantastic bloggers are missing out

    Eeek! Does anyone know who at refinery29 to contact about fixing a broken link on the entry page? When I submitted my URL, it wouldn’t let me type the colon…I didn’t think it would matter, but it resulted in a dead link. WAAHHH!!! Any suggestions? Thanks so much!!

    I’m with Laura!
    I was excited about entering a competition for the first time but then realized it’s only opened for US residents. Oh, well. 🙁

    So it appears no one is paying much attention to your entry, I accidentely entered my blog before realizing it was for US citizens only, but my entry is still up and people are voting for it 😛
