I was going to post this over the weekend - but let us get the business at hand.
There have been imitators, but there is only one LJ Idol. What it is, what it ends up being, during the course of a season, is so much more than the sum of the parts.
Veterans know this. Newbies are about to find that out.
If you came for our penultimate Idol experience - If you came for a writing challenge - if you came to make friends - or were just curious/bored and couldn't help yourself -
You are here now.
This is the official sign up sheet for Season 8.
To become an official contestant, it just pretty straight forward, just post an entry on your own LJ declaring your intent to participate, and link it back to this thread.
(It's good practice for what you will be doing the rest of the season, and it's a way of getting the word out about Idol at the same time!)
There are instructions for how to do that, if you don't already know, in the FAQ: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/484986.html as well as a lot of other useful information. (including contacting me if you will be using anything other than your main LJ account to participate/if you have multiple accounts)
If you want to link a copy of the Sign Up, here's a handy graphic: http://ljidol.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/lji.s8.signup.jpg
Thank you for coming, and I look forward to
Edit to add: Sign Up will close Monday, October 24th at 8 PM. EDT You will also need to complete the Week 1 entry, which is due at that time.
