New Year’s Contest

I would like to wish you a very very Happy New Year. To bring in the New Year, Let’s Sermo is holding its second contest. Prizes aren’t that expensive this time, but they aren’t too shabby (haha). Just a small way of saying a ‘thank you’ for your comments.

How will the contest work?

The contest runs for a month. Winners will be drawn on 3 February 2009. Participants earn points by commenting on the 2 selected blogs: Let’s Sermo and The Number 39. As 1 comment equals to 1 point, the more you comment, the higher the chances of you winning! So comment away! Also you will get 5 points if you blog about the contest.

Contest rules

1. Email subscription to Let’s Sermo and The Number 39 is necessary to enter this contest.

2. Only relevant comments will count towards your points. Comments like “great post! Keep it up!” will NOT be counted.

3. If you have commented on a lot of the blogs, you may use another alias and comment on the same post, as long as rule 2 is followed.

4. When commenting, use the same email address at all times. If you use a different email address than the one you used to subscribe, points from the comments will not be counted.

5. Comments will be counted from today onwards.

On to the good stuff – the prizes!

The top 5 commentators will be given a prize each. Remember, the more you comment, the more points you have, and the chances of you winning are higher!

1 month ad spot on The Number 39 worth $10

The winner picks his prize, then the runner up’s choose from the remaing prizes.

I wish all the participants good luck, hope to see you around.

  19. Busby SEO says:

    Okay, count me in, and hope I can win one of the prize πŸ˜€

  20. Bulk sms says:

    I do not understand, why you people are giving hosting as the prize. If you want to give than you should offer as per the winner choice.

    Because no one is on as per your choiced hosting provider. You should think about it.

    May be you will delete this comment, but before deleting I know you are agree with you.

  21. goacom says:

    For a 15 year old this is geniuosity. It is certainly bound to invite a lot of interest in this campaign and it would be interesting to see the winners.The first prize might be a shade short of expectations though since folks look at a year more than a couple of months.

    Arguably a novel start.

  22. Caroline says:

    I do hope too many people are not going to enter this contest as I can see the competition growing out of hand.

  23. Farrhad A says:

    @Bulk sms No, the comment will be approved πŸ˜‰
    Okay, I think you are right, will make the changes.

    @Goacom :) I’ll see what I can do πŸ˜‰

    @Caroline Right now the highest comments is 6, don’t give up :)

  24. almost haft of the time of contest has passed. And I can see there are some active commentators who are trying their best to get some price.

    Come on guys, be active πŸ˜‰

  25. Nice contest :) and hope I can win one of the prize lol

  26. @Motorcycles for sale
