CONTEST - WIDESCREEN MONITOR GIVEAWAY!

Postby Matthew on Fri Feb 15, 2008 8:58 pm

Avertisements

Hey Everyone,

If you've been here a while you've probably noticed our new features. We've transformed our community into a social tool for interacting with others interested in making a living at home.

Some of the new features we've added include:

- sticky notes to quickly post a question on another member's profile page
- personal pages where you can add whatever you like (including your own advertisements)
- a blog within your personal page where you can share your thoughts and syndicate them with a personal RSS feed
- the ability to search and add friends who may have similar interests, ideas, or even live in the same city!

The Goods

WhyDoWork.com is giving away two 20 inch widescreen monitors* to help make your time online a little more enjoyable. Along with that we will also provide as a third prize a free review from the fast growing WhyDoWork Blogs (Current value of $200 USD).

The Contest

Since there are two monitors up for grabs we've split the contest into two pieces.

Monitor #1
To enter, simply give your My Page the best design you can, I've done what I could on mine (see it here) but since we allow HTML and CSS there's a lot more you can do! (hint:use the html button in the pop up editor.)

Now until the contest end, March 31st, 2008 (around 7pm EST) we will take the 10 best profiles- as judged by our WDW Staff, create a poll on this thread, and pick a winner. Keep in mind you can be knocked off the top 10 at any time before the contest end.

If you'd like to be considered for the best design please reply to this thread

Monitor #2
-Mention our new social networking features (I mention them at the top of this post) in your WhyDoWork Blog on your My Page and you get 1 entry
-Mention our new social networking features (again they're mentioned at the top) in your external blog or site and link to our homepage whydowork.com and get 5 entries
-Subscribe to our blogs RSS feed via email here and get 3 entries

It's as simple as that. Good Luck Everyone!
We will be drawing both Monitors and the Review prize March 31st, 2007 (around 7pm EST)


* - Since I haven't purchased the monitors yet, they may not be exactly as pictured.

For the first contest, do you want us to post a link to our page in this thread if we want to enter the contest to make it more convenient?

Sadly due to a lack of participation, we're cancelling the 'Monitor #1' giveaway as we haven't found any profile pages that made full use of CSS and HTML. :(

Monitor #2 is still up for grabs
if you haven't already entered, all you need to do is :

Monitor #2
-Mention our new social networking features (I mention them at the top of this post) in your WhyDoWork Blog on your My Page and you get 1 entry
-Mention our new social networking features (again they're mentioned at the top) in your external blog or site and link to our homepage whydowork.com and get 5 entries
-Subscribe to our blogs RSS feed via email here and get 3 entries


Let me know if there's any questions or concerns :)

I honestly can't believe that I haven't entered this contest yet. I was going to when you first started it but then I kept putting it off and eventually forgot. Thanks for the reminder.

I have done all three ways of entering.

1) I posted about it on one of my personal blogs. You can see the post here: http://work-at-home-based-business.com/ ... e-part-of/

2) I wrote a new post on my whydowork blog.

3) I subscribed to the feed via email. I've always been subscribed to the feed in my Google feed reader but now I am subscribed to both.

Thanks for the opportunity to win this great monitor. I hope I win because I really need a new one.

Trent

I won! I won! I won!

I am soooooo happy!

Thank you very much whydowork for having all these wonderful contests. I'm glad I am finally a winner. The funny thing is that I almost forgot to enter this one. That would have been a huge mistake.

What do you need from me? I assume just my address?

I just sent my address to you via the contact form. If you need anything else just let me know.

Thanks!

I was actually really surprised it was you :)
You had 8 entries in there, and most of them were just your name. When I saw the winning email address and a subscribe date of 03/30/2008 I was thinking how lucky this person was they got it in on time!

Glad it turned out to be you.
