The LJ Birthday Book

Thanks to your suggestions over at lj_turns10, the anniversary book is really starting to take shape. We're closing in on a rough table of contents and this is the last week for open entry suggestions. Things we're particularly interested in: entries from individual journals (it doesn't have to be your own); entries from the early years (1999–2000); and entries from the very, very recent past (i.e. 2007 and 2008).

As a thank-you for their contributions, all the authors of entries chosen for the book will receive a $20 LJ gift certificate (that's a year's worth of Paid Account time or 2 years' worth of userpic add-ons!). And in recognition of all the good ideas we've gotten from lj_turns10, we'll give you a $5 LJ gift certificate (that's 2 months' worth of Paid Account time) if you suggest an entry that makes it into the book. In cases where we receive multiple suggestions for an entry, the gift certificate goes to the first suggestion. And what if you suggest an entry that gets chosen for the book and you happen to be the author of that entry? Then we'll give you a $20 and a $5 LJ gift certificate, for a grand total of $25, to spend as you wish in the Gift Shop.

11:59 p.m. PST on February 25 is your last chance to suggest any and every excellent entry (remember that entries should be the author's original content and written in English). After the stroke of midnight, lj_turns10 will still be the hub of LJ birthday activity—we'll have polls, questions, and perhaps some writing prompts—but we won't be accepting any more entry nominations for the book. So give us your final suggestions because we can't wait to see them!
