$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.

PreBlogging October 4, 2007 at 4:53 am

I wouldn’t mind a blog redesign it seems all the rage !
I won $100 in WorldOfAngel.com competition and I decided to give 1/2 of it away via John’s Blog.

kanute October 4, 2007 at 6:42 am

Invest your monies in a better way…

PreBlogging October 4, 2007 at 7:20 am

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.

BlogsTheme.com October 4, 2007 at 4:24 am

Hehe.., I guess this is shoe’s strategy to let john to gain some readers at the beginning, and he will come up with something really big for his blog, and leave him behind.. We will just have to wait to see who is the winner.

Richard Miller October 4, 2007 at 7:42 am

I’m surprised t see the small number of comments on this one considering the prizes you offer! :shock:

Abhishek October 4, 2007 at 7:56 am

John,

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…

Teejay October 4, 2007 at 8:44 am

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

Shoemoney October 4, 2007 at 8:30 am

Seriously people, do you even read this poser’s blog? :roll: Everyone with any sense know that mine is clearly superior! :twisted:

Mark Estrella October 4, 2007 at 5:11 pm

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.

chica with issues October 4, 2007 at 5:42 pm

mmm pizza

Popular Bookmarks October 5, 2007 at 12:28 am
