Round 5 @ Midnight

9rules is on the Eastern Time Zone so we abide by Eastern Time Zone rules. Yes this makes us Fascist Americans, but what would 9rules be without a little Fascism? (*insert joke here) If you have checked out the Numbers Game you can see there are some lofty expectations for this round. We haven’t sent out any emails or requests to our member to spread the word because honestly it will be interesting to see how things hold up on their own.

It is a bit crazy in my mind to think each round will be bigger than the next, but that’s how it always happens so I am trying to keep expectations low for this one (as I usually do). So to sound humble I am obligated to say we would be happy to have just 10 great sites submit…

We may not throw out business plans to appease certain individuals, but there is and always will be one plan that we have stuck by since day one and that involves truly connecting bloggers with each other and readers. As with any venture our Members have found that you get as much out of 9rules as much as you put in, so if you are submitting on the 25th don’t come in with the expectations that your life will magically change. Come in with the expectations that if you do get in you have more opportunities presented to do bigger and better things.

Where will this magical Submission page be? We like to keep things simple so it will be here and nothing will be there until 12:00am Eastern. If you have a problem with timezones look at this chart to figure out what time 12:00am Eastern is. On the chart we are the 7am grid.

Definitely looking forward to tonight and when the floodgates open they open fast for the first couple of hours. Best of luck to all who submit. Whether you get in or not its not the end all, be all of the world so please have mercy on us.
