The other night I announced that the Design Nathan A New Avatar contest had been canceled due to lack of interest. Some of you responded that it wasn't lack of interest as much as lack of ability. Whatever!
This has inspired me to come up with a contest that doesn't require you to give a crap at all. It doesn't require you to have any particular skill or talent. In other words, winning is as easy as falling off of a log!
As of 8:40 am EST, this blog has had 9337 visits since its inception. So, in the radio tradition of "be the 10th caller and win crap", I'm looking for my 10.000th visitor. I'm currently averaging 470 visits per week, so the winning visit should happen some time the end of next week. And all you have to do to win is keep dropping in.
The only hitch here will be figuring out who the winner is. I recognize some of you just by seeing where you're dropping in from, but I've got a (Yay) growing number of lurkers who I see fairly often, but they never comment, so I don't know who they are. And I suspect that some of you are reading by other means, so I don't see hits from where I know you live. Anyway, we'll be judging by my Sitemeter, since that's all I've got to go by. If I don't recognize who the winner is, I'll put up enough info about the 10,000th visit for the person to recognize themselves and they'll just have to delurk to claim their prize.
What's the prize, you may ask? Well, since most movie theaters now allow you to buy tickets online, I'll be sending you and one guest to the movie of your choice in your very own hometown! How much fun is that?
Jeff. Just to be perfectly clear...the deadline is whenever it happens. Satisfied?
