April's ActiveRain Contest
You Might Be From _____ If ...
Jeff Foxworthy made a good living and reputation with his comedy routines "You Might Be a Redneck If ...". Although his examples were extreme, they always contained a kernel of truth that people could relate to.
Every city, county, state and province has some unique characteristics that help to shape its residents, their culture, and their lifestyle. What seems natural in New York City could seem very strange in San Francisco. Those traits help to define who we are and how we act.
This contest challenges you to think about what makes where you live different and special. Your post title should read "You Might Be From (insert location) If ..."
Your post can be in one of two formats:
1) A list of places, characteristics, and observations about your city, county, state, or province similar to this post. Include links, maps, pictures, and graphics where feasible to help your readers gain a deeper understanding of your location and what you're describing.
2) Choose one seemingly unique place, characteristic, or observation about where you live and write about it.
To earn your 500 point bonus, leave a link to your contest post in a comment here by April 30th. Explain why like-minded people should want to live where you do!
