I want to do this! I have a great poem about hooping that I love. I don't know how to send something in a .pdf though. What is that exactly? Any help on how to do that? I could send it as a link, an email or a word processing file but I am not knowing this thing you call .pdf. Can someone help?
Wonderful! A word .doc is fine too. We'll add that to the submission guidelines. I don't want it to be difficult to submit work. We prefer pdf because formatting won't be altered in any way. If you have Adobe Acrobat (it's a free download) you can save any word processing file to a pdf.
We had to pay to for Acrobat; as far as I know, Adobe Reader is the free download, and it's only for reading pdf files (unless something has changed and I missed it).
If you can't download the converter for free, my offer (see comment below) still stands. Just let me know if you want to do it.
Oops! Thanks for pointing that out. It's not free unless you're just using the reader version. However, you can download CutePDF for free and it will save your document as a pdf. http://www.cutepdf.com/products/cutepdf/writer.asp
Shoot! Mine may be too long. It's a short poem but written in short small sentences.
Here is a link for anyone who wants to read it. It's called Hoop Bliss: http://people.tribe.net/caroleeena/blog/ebdeb0d2-a166-4ef2-89c9-d88...
