Contests Happening In The Community

I just realized that I Love Blog is not the only one hosting a blog contest. It was not very neighborly of me to not post other community members that are hosting blog contests as well. This is something I need to correct right now. Here’s a bunch of John Chow dot Com community members’ contests.

K-Rad.HK – Win any video game you want contest. Carl is looking for a new name for his online store and needs your help. The person who gives him the best name will win any video game that HKToyz sells.

Net Business Blog – NBB is giving away a copy of WoW with account to their 1337th commenter. Matt won’t tell how many comments are on the blog right now, but says the 1337th comment will be hit before the end of next week.

Career Ramblings – They held a banner contest but it’s over now. However, you can find out who won.

Shawn Knight – Due to the lack of interest thus far, Shawn has decided to extend the deadline for getting your entry in on giveaway number two. What’s the prize? Free Money! $50.00 to one lucky winner via Paypal. – Post a review of the Massive Technology Show and you could win a full access pass to the show ($149 value). This would be of interest if you live in Vancouver or plan to be in Vancouver on March 28, which is the day of the show.

Productive Strategies – Review this blog you could win a brand new iPod. I already posted about this in my Productive Strategies iPod Contest post but an extra plug never hurts.

The Perks Of Membership

This is just one more reason why you should be part of the John Chow dot Com community. I give posting preference to top commentators and community members. They support me so I support them.

If you have a contest going and I didn’t post it, I’m sorry. I didn’t know about it. Send me an email and I’ll try to get it up on the next community post.

  1. Carl says:

    Thanks for the plug πŸ˜€

  2. Thanks, John. Whether you like it or not you just became slightly less evil in my book!

    1. Dan1el says:

      Don’t be fooled, he still wants to take over the internet. πŸ™‚

    2. Marc says:

      There are tons of evil motives behind this Matt. You just need to look for them. It’s just very helpful that John’s evil happens to help his evil followers often enough (e.g. Technorati boost) 😈

  3. Jane May says:

    There’s that “Humanitarian” we have all come to know and love. Thanks John, I know it takes some effort to have to go back and include others so it’s very much appreciated.

  4. I’d love to send you info on my contest but my host is messing around my server and my site’s down πŸ˜₯

    Anyway, speaking of top commentators, why did the counter reset again?!?

    1. Jane May says:

      I was wondering what was going on with your site, I tried to go to it a couple of times…maybe got dugg??? πŸ˜€

      John, thanks for the updates on these contests, I was completely unaware for some of them…I already singned up for two!!

      1. Thanks Jane, It should be up now!

    2. derrich says:

      You’ve got some work to do to get back up to #1, Saman. You should come over to my blog. All you need is 3 comments, and you’ll be #1. πŸ˜›

  5. Nomar says:

    Great contests, thanks for sharing !!

  6. Ryan says:

    Be careful with NBB’s contest … WoW is addictive, and you’ll never be the same again! If I win I think I’ll donate it to John. πŸ˜†

    1. lol John would never make it past level 10. He’d be too entertained running around 1-shotting bunnie rabbits all day.

      1. Ryan says:

        Oh no, evil john 😈 would make it to the top real quick and go around killing everything… then eat it … that’s what evil John does. :mrgreen:

    2. Dan1el says:

      WOW ruins lives πŸ™‚

  7. Thanks for taking the time to share highlights from your community members. I’ve also jumped in on some of the contests as I was not aware of them before.

  8. ilker says:

    Good stuff John.. I will stick my nose in any of those contests where my mind applies.

    BTW, do you really need that $50 from Shawn Knight? 😯 I thought you were already rich πŸ˜€

    1. Yeah right! Let some of us have a chance!

      But, if you did, then you wouldn’t get any Evil Points either….

    2. John Chow says:

      450 is $50! 😈

      1. Or $50 is $50!

        Saman = +1 😈 point

        Sorry, please don’t shoot me with your laser eyes!

  9. Jon says:

    Man sometimes I wish I lived in Vancouver. Anyone know where I can find info about events like the Massive Technology show in Toronto?

  10. oscarsito says:

    ooh lots of contests, thanks for the heads up!

  11. Stuart says:

    This is a good idea man.

  12. Michael says:

    I love contests, free stuff rocks!


  13. Very cool. Thanks for the heads up on these, John. I live in a proverbial cave and would’ve missed out otherwise.


    1. ilker says:

      I’m running a contest as well! πŸ˜›

    2. That’s nice. People are usually attracted to games & prizes. Everyone just want to have fun too in the meantime!

  14. Shawn Knight says:

    Cool, thanks for the posting and welcome all John Chow readers! :mrgreen:

    1. Stuart says:

      Your welcome πŸ™‚ I entered your contest.

  15. MasterSparky says:

    I signed up for 2. Thanks John.

  16. David says:

    Cool…me likes contests…someday soon I hope I will have enough traffic to run my own contest.

    1. Maybe that is your ticket to getting more traffic!

      1. Jez says:

        Yeah its a really good idea, fairly easy to plug I should imagine

      2. Marc says:

        Yes it’s sort of a chicken and egg scenario. Contests are great for exposure, but you need to get the word out. Though contests that give away free stuff usually aren’t too hard to promote. The trick is getting anyone to remain interested in your blog post-contest…

  17. ilker says:

    Btw, thanks for these John.. I did 3 of them and will do the other 2 when I have more time! πŸ˜‰

    1. Jeff Kee says:

      I found the contest from before, where they were giving out a domain, through John’s site and I got one.

  18. Gdog says:

    Nice post…I love contests. πŸ˜›

    1. Who doesn’t? Me too! πŸ˜›

    2. Jeff Kee says:

      I’m competitive as hell haha

    3. Dan1el says:

      I love contests only when I win πŸ™‚

      1. Who doesn’t love to win anyway? It is all in the name of fun!

  19. Sean says:

    Those sound like some great contests! πŸ˜€


  20. derrich says:

    I’m going to win at least 3 of these. Just a prediction. 😎

    1. Gosh, that is going to take some work over the week! πŸ™‚

  21. Jeff Kee says:

    Eh. My poll for who should do the OhMiBod review doesn’t count as a contest I guess..

    Jane’s winning by the way.

  22. Jez says:

    Some cool competitions there, may have a go at a couple of them, good way to promote the sites, especially as you have linked to them!

  23. zaki says:

    WOW….Never thought there are a lots of contest out there….!!! Need to check out few…Cannot participate in all….No time and No expertise…. πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

    1. Time is a factor. For expertise, not all requires very high level. Some boils down to simple review me contests which anyone can have a hand in.

  24. Allan says:

    I think a lot of contests do not get much coverage and thats why so many go by unseen.

    I am currently running a contest blog your socks off which ends 10th March. I was surprised how little interset people have had entering it.
