Is there a list or blog that tracks writing contests?

I enjoy writing but often have trouble with motivation. Is there a blog or other resource that tracks writing contests? Looking for anything from publishers looking for compilation submissions on a certain theme to overtly commercial contests (where you might write something about a product to win a small prize or the product itself) to just for fun bragging rights competitions.

I have plenty of undeveloped ideas of my own, but I'm a bit rusty and thought I might try waking the writing part of my brain and building some deadline-meeting writing habits with some short exercises first.

Ralan.com has a contests section, geared toward short stories, including flash fiction.

Sign up for duotrope.com and they give you a weekly list of who is looking for what, when it closes, and you can also track all of your submissions.
