    don't bother. your site is not remotely close to having enough content to be worthy of a listing.

    fitting into multiple categories can be your bane... according to some editors here, if you submit to the wrong category, they will more you to a better one, and if that editor things you belong someplace else, you get moved again... the wait after each move can take years! If you follow the guidelines rather then what the editors say (yes, I am saying the editors don't follow the guidelines) it says that submitting to an incorrect category can get your site rejected...then your wait time is still likely a couple of years... as not all editors use the unreviewed queue and can find your site by other means.

    Though Agent000 is correct (though didn't actually answer your question so overall was VERY unhelpful, which you will find a lot around here), you should likely wait a bit before trying, as while unique content is king, if you are not an editor, you need plenty of it! so get your site established by other means and keep adding content... after a few months, go on & try (just pick which category your site BEST fits into, as in if it has more articles, try an article cat, if it has more freebies, try a freebie cat, etc).

    If you are lucky, you'll find multiple listings for your site... though, heh, submit just once ;)
