Chow On The Shoe – More Prizes For The RSS Competition

$1,800 of New Prizes Added!

We’re off to a good start in the John Chow Vs. Shoemoney RSS Competition. I have taken the early lead but I’m sure Shoe will be unleashing something big soon. Well, he can bring it because I’m going into stage two of my master plan. Thanks to the support of some kind sponsors, I’m adding $1,800 of prizes to the RSS competition. The new items up for grabs include:

The biggest prize of them all: a complete WordPress blog redesign valued at $750 by Adriann Pienaar of Adii. The winner will get a custom, unique blog design (unlimited revisions by the client). The design will be supplied to the winner as a widget-ready WordPress theme. You can see some of Adriann’s work here.

How Do I Get My Hands On These Great Prizes?

First, you need to subscribe to my RSS feed and check it every day for the rest of this month. Then you need to blog about it. Link to this post and/or to the post announcing the RSS competition and link to my RSS feed so your readers can sign up to it. Here’s an example of what I’m looking for.

Help John Chow beat Shoemoney in their RSS competition. John is offering some great prizes for people signing up to his full feed RSS. Shoe is offering nothing so go John!

After you’ve done that, send me an email with the link to the post. Once confirm the rules have been met, I’ll add you to the draw. Some of the prizes will be given away randomly to RSS readers but you will only know about it if you subscribe to the RSS feed. It will not be posted on the blog.

Subscribe To My RSS By Email

I am adding an option to subscribe to my RSS via email. This is a really cool way to subscribe. Enter your email address into the subscription box below, then confirm the confirmation email. Once you’ve done that, you will receive all my future post deliver right to your email box! Even if you already subscribed and read my blog with a RSS reader, you will want to give RSS by email a try. It’s really cool.

    Oooo…blog redesign, huh? Adii does good work.

    1. I still get “Not Implemented” javascript errors for every comment in IE7 on this site 🙁

          Thanks for you thoughts, but I’ve already had 40 visitors today from this link here. And this post is only a few hours old.

          I’m sure John will mention the advertisers again later on in the month. So for 1 link and 100 visitors, I am a happy bunny.

  20. I’m surprised t see the small number of comments on this one considering the prizes you offer! 😯

  21. Abhishek says:


    Seriously, this is how you want to get new readers? I always thought you advocated great content to build readers. However you are buying people outright. Also I am not sure if such schemes will attract the right set of subscribers.

    I understand its a contest and everything, but cmon…

    1. Teejay says:

      I bet he justs wants the contest to be fun and somehow subscribers benefit from it via prizes.

  22. Keith Dsouza says:

    Yipeee so am I in contention for the prize draw now :twisted:. Am becoming evil like you 😈

  34. topbizopps says:

    John, if you want to add 1000 high quality business cards to your pool of prizes, email me.

  35. Darin Carter says:

    Man … you let thegeekboys sponsor your contest … and they stole my design???

  36. Personally i think what John is doing is brilliant although I am still waiting for Shoemoney’s “plan of action”. I don’t think he’s gonna go down that easy. Nevertheless, you got my bet Mr. Chow.

  37. Most of the prizes are not useful to me… PIZZA ??? 😡

  38. DeeJay says:
