The Blog Contest Winners

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know that I’ve been running a few contests last month. Well, it’s time to list the winners!

Flipping Rich T-Shirt Winners

Congrats to the T-shirt contest winners. You are now flipping rich!

Nintendo Wii Contest Winner

This was part of the Evil Blog Contest. Sponsored by the promotional pens maker,, I had a Nintendo Wii up for grabs.

I said I was going to do a video draw but scheduling conflicted prevented and myself from meeting up. Therefore, I just asked to draw a name from the bucket. And the winner is…

Congrats to all our contest winners. You should have received an email from me. You must reply to that email with the information I requested in order to claim your prize.

Thanks to everyone who entered the contests. Look for another contest very soon.

    1. Kenny says:

      Lucky Nate, he submitted his entry the night before the deadline! :mrgreen:

      1. Winners finally announced I see. I think you kept a lot of people in suspense as you had said you would make the drawing at the end of last month. 🙂


      2. KidBlogger says:

        wow! he’s so lucky 😯

        1. Nate W. says:

          That I am! When I found out I almost wii’d my pants! 😆 JK!

  2. Awww…I didn’t get the flippin rich tee.

    A little off-topic, john the auctionAds are giving an error all over the place. If you don’t already know, is just to inform.

    1. John Chow says:

      It looks like the AuctionAds site is down. Maybe shoemoney forgot to pay the hosting bill.

      1. HMTKSteve says:

        I noticed that too…

        Maybe eBay shut them down because they were approaching the top tier of payouts?

        1. I doubt ebay shut them down, he says on his blog they were moving servers so that’s probably why.

          1. Jonix says:

            Yep, probably that. But it’s the second time in a short period of time. I wonder if the servers are reliable for that kind of traffic.

          2. Marc says:

            Servers are the bane of any new online entity. It’s all fine and dandy when you’re just getting a few thousand people a day, but when you scale up like they have you’re dealing with different requirements and the host you’re dealing with might not be able to deliver the goods. Then you have to switch… That can be miserable…

          3. Marc or John, any advice on how to ramp up to make a clean switch? I expect a few thousand visits a day by the end of the month. 😯 😆 😯

      2. James says:

        Looking ok here.

      3. Shoemoney’s reviewme fee is $2500. Must get some sweet traffic to charge that fee. I wonder how many reviews a month he runs.

        1. Jonix says:

          one or two, he don’t like reviews, has he say on is blog

          1. Marc says:

            Hence the $1250 motivator 😛

        2. Gath says:

          The last one I remember was for – and a lot of people chewed him out for not putting much effort into it.

          1. Alex says:

            I saw 404 for the auction ads early today, then it came back to normal, until now

  8. David says:

    Sweet!! Thanks John!! I’ll soon be rockin my I’m flippin Rich TEE!!! Even though its not true in the future..but I guess its just forecasting the future 😈

    1. Marc says:

      Send John a pic so we can all see how awesome John’s gifts are and you can get a slightly evil backlink 😈

      1. David says:

        Maybe I will!! Or possibly get a pic of me wearing it with John 😈

  9. derrich says:

    I wore my Flippin Rich TShirt last night…again. That thing is magic.

  10. Gary Lee says:

  11. Dave says:

    Congrats to the winners 🙂

  12. Leo says:

    Congrats Nate!

    1. Nate W. says:

      Thanks! The Wii is going to rock my socks! 😛

  13. Amanda says:

    wow congratulations everyone!!! i just got a ps3.. and we had the xbox360 the wii is on my list for nexties

    1. Alex says:

      BuuuuuHuuuuuu 😥

  14. Ryan says:

    Hey John, do you only pick the blogs that are updated frequently and neglect the ones that aren’t in these contests? I can totally see why you’d do that but just wondering.

    1. Jonix says:

      He can’t review all the blogs ryan. If he must review or talk about blogs, he need of course something in exchange 🙂 is a “win-win game” this one.

      1. Ryan says:

        Heh true that.

    2. John Chow says:

      It’s just a random draw.

      1. Marc says:

        Yeah, John lays out the rules pretty clearly in his contest posts. He said they’d be random draws.

        The only spot where he’s ever leaned towards bloggers who update often with good content is when he features some articles from the community.

        1. Alex says:

          A lucky winner takes it, others wait for the next competition…

  15. simon says:

    Will you have another Nintendo Wii Contest soon!!

    1. Alex says:

      The next one should be for PS 3 ❗

  16. Greg Stratz says:

    Thanks for the t-shirts. Will be taking a picture and posting it when they come.

    Go John Go…

  17. Shawn Knight says:

    Congrats to the winners. Maybe Nate should invite us all over to play the Wii??

  18. Nate W. says:

    Hey everyone! Wii party at my house! Woohooo! BYOB (bring your own booze)! Hey I gotta give a shoutout to John Chow and for an awesome contest with an awsome outcome! 😆

    For anyone who hasn’t already checked out my blog, my focus is (online and offline) business development tips and reflections for young entrepreneurs from a young entrepreneur, me!

    Thanks again John and 1234 Pens!

    1. Greg Stratz says:

      Well where do you live?

      1. Nate W. says:

        Scottsdale, Arizona. Land of Intense Sun and Business Opportunity!

        1. Greg Stratz says:

          Dam too far for me. Not time for a raod trip either. so your lucky!!!

        2. Marc says:

          Bah, too hot down there for we Canadians 😳

          Congrats though 😉

    2. Gath says:

      Congrats on winning the Wii!

      1. Alex says:

        Congrats! I guess we’ll be seeing a lot less of you during next couple of months :mrgreen:

  19. Sean says:

    Cool! Congrats everyone!

    I really wanted that Wii lol.

  20. Marc says:

    The Wii was an awesome prize John, relatively low cost as compared to the rest of the platforms yet it’s still very sought after.

    Toss another one for grabs 😉

  21. Gdog says:

    Dude…I think you made a mistake John. The real Wii winner was supposed to be me!!! :mrgreen:

  22. DanyO says:

    Sweet, but don’t give too many Wii’s, because people will stop updating their blogs, and play with it all day long.

  23. Alex says:

    Congrats to Nate, Greg, Kid, Tyler and David ❗ ❗

    1. David says:

      Thanks Alex!! I’ll be posting pics of the shirt when I get it!!

    2. Greg Stratz says:

      Why thanks. I wil wear mine with pride

  24. KidBlogger says:

    Yey I’m flipping rich! :mrgreen:

  25. KidBlogger says:

    congrats nate! lucky you! congrats also to greg, tyler and david, also kidblogger!

  26. David says:

    In all honesty, I would have loved the Wii, and I would have used it tons!!! But its probably better, because when it comes to stuff like that, I’m terrible, and nothing else would get done 😳

    1. Alex says:

      Yeah, I would probably give up blogging if I won..

      1. David says:

        haha…I would give up studying and work before blogging…blogging is fun!! Work and Studying isn’t…lesson in this?? Work as a blogger!!! Now if only I could get my page as popular as John’s now!!

  27. Perhaps when John gives away a car, my name gets picked out of the hat. 😆 Congratulations to the flippingrich&Wii winners!

  28. KidBlogger says:
