Xygoxen recently unveiled "The Online Journal Project", which will showcase a journal every week. Prizes will be awarded to several of the best journals, too! Xygoxen just won a Site of the Day award from Macromedia; I wonder whether they're friendly enough with Macromedia that they managed to get some free software to give away...?
If you have a journal with a strong mix of design and content and would like to have it viewed by some of the top designers on the web, you might want to submit your journal to the contest. You might want to let your friends know, too.
Either way, it's a great excuse to work on your journal, isn't it?
