Will you win?

For the first time ever, this blog is involved in a contest. This isn’t like a “who’s got the best blog” kind of thing, but one that gives you the chance to win a prize. I know, I know… that’s mighty nice of me, isn’t it?

Well, to be honest, I’m not really the man behind the curtain on this one. The contest is actually being run by Andy over at commentluv.com. That’s one of the plug-ins I use on this blog (it appends the “last post” link to commenters who have their own blogs). Andy apparently has some stuff to give away and has decided to run it this way, so we can all benefit from his beneficence.

So here’s the deal:

You have to comment somewhere on this blog (not necessarily this post). The comment has to be relevant to the post – spam is disqualified, as is the “oh, pick me! pick me!” kind of nonsense. You also have to meet Andy’s requirements (copied below):

  • You must be registered at CommentLuv.com and have your site url registered and verified.
  • You must also have a profile description entered at CommentLuv.com.
  • You cannot spam.
  • You do not need to have CommentLuv installed on your own site.

So in order to win, you must have a site of your own. It doesn’t have to be an old one, though… it can be brand spanking new. There are plenty of ways to start your own site for free.

After you post the comment, if you win, you’ll see a prize notification link in your comment (in the “Last post” area). Click on that link and fill out the details on the “Claim Your Prize” page to receive the prize. The first two winners got a 2GB memory card.

So go ahead and start commenting away! You might just win. (contest runs through 11/21 or so)
