This Is One Happy Blogger


Nate Whitehill, of Nate Whitehill dot Com, sent over this photo of the Nintendo Wii he won from our last blog contest. The Wii contest was sponsored by promotional pens maker,

I see that Nate got some bonus pens in addition to the Wii. My bet is Nate will give away the pens as part of his blog promotion but he will keep the Wii for himself. At least, if he was evil, he’ll do that.

Congrats to Nate. I’m glad you got the Wii in one piece. This month, I am giving away a 30GB Microsoft Zune MP3 player. If you haven’t entered yet, you still have time. The contest is over at the end of this month.

What till you see what we have lined up for the May contest. No, it’s not my broken GPS! 😈

    These contests must be great for a blog. Very smart John Chow. I gotta get my blog a contest.

    1. Dave says:

      Blog contests like this are best when you have a large traffic base to pull from.

    2. Huge reader base or not, you can start by giving away a really cool item so the word spreads like wildfire. Of course, it would be nice to have SOME decent traffic to begin with.

      1. Marc says:

        It would at least make it worth it. Without the big base you might be forking out a few hundred bucks just to grab the interest of a few people.

    3. when you get one that gives a way something like a Wii – make sure you let me know 😉

  3. Blog Potato says:

    Is the Wii, cool? I still haven’t played one yet.

    1. Dave says:

      Yes they are, it’s a system almost anyone can enjoy playing. Gamer or no.

      1. Matt Jones says:

        Yeah even my sister can play! (which is pretty rare!)

    2. Marc says:

      I haven’t played one yet but most of my friends have and they’ve got nothing but rave reviews. I’m not surprised coming from Nintendo.

  4. Cognoscente says:

    Great idea for a contest John. I’d love to do something along the same line when I launch my site next month. Now if only stores around here would get some Wiis in stock!

  5. Ronaldo says:

    A G-Force with 768Mb of memory for us PC gamers would make a nice gift for the May contest… 😉

    1. Marc says:

      John could probably get a hold of one of those pretty easy 🙂 It wouldn’t help me though with my old school machine 😉

  6. Dave says:

    Congrats Nate! You look very very happy in that picture 🙂

  7. Nate W. says:

    1. msdanielle says:

      Nate! I thought that was your hand in the picture! LOL :mrgreen:

      1. Marc says:

        I thought the same thing too 🙂

        1. Nate W. says:

          LOL I’ve heard that so many times! I am even starting to believe it was my hand!

  8. moneymaker says:

  10. James says:

    Congrats Nate.

  11. Dj Flush says:

    Congrats Nate 😀

    I hope I win the Microsoft Zune 😈

    1. Didn’t someone already win the Zune? With all the losing I’ve been doing, I’ve actually lost track LOL.

  12. I like the contests around here, as you actually give away awesome prizes. Most blog contests give away a DVD or something. Way to go, John. Keep it up! 🙂

  14. Hustler says:

    congrats Nate…damn I want a Wii!! 👿 👿

  15. 😈 I’m going to steal it. Actually, Nate is a great guy, and I really enjoy reading his blog.

    1. Nate W. says:

      Hey thanks for the nice comments. I need to order a review from the evil man himself in the next few months. I could really appreciate the super targeted traffic.

    2. Marc says:

      “I’m going to steal it.”

      Now that’s a truly evil strategy 😈

  16. Congrats dude! I’ve bookmarked ur blog, excellent resource!

    1. Nate W. says:

      Hey thanks for the bookmark! I try to update everyday!

  17. Shawn Knight says:

    Congrats Nate, use the Wii well… just don’t go throwing the remote through your TV… cause then u’d need John to give away a plasma for you to win….

    On second thought, go for it! Would give the rest of us a chance to win hah 🙂

  18. Doesn’t Nate look like he’s holding up the remote? LOL congrats, man, you and the Wii make a good pair. 😀

  19. Simonne says:

    Congratulations, Nate! This is truly a happy face! I like the photo very much.

  20. Amanda says:

    Congratulations thats awesome. I want one.

  21. I want one, too; we ALL want one, don’t we LOL. Unlike John and Nate, we actually have to work to get one. 😆

  22. Matt Jones says:

    Nate BE WARNED, on Wii sports, Boxings is very tiring!

    Oh, and make sure you leave enough room between yourself and the TV and what ever you do don’t swing the controller by its wrist loop thing to play baseball! (People did that and then complained that they had a broken their Plasma TV…

    1. eh? why play basketball on your TV with wii? just play the real thing.

  23. Lucky guy! The wii is so addictive. My favorite is the bowling game. You play a game and get a workout at the same time. Keep the cool promos rolling, John!

  24. wow Congrats Nate.. I’m sure you’ll have tons of fun with it.. and no don’t sell it on ebay 👿

  25. Amanda says:

    I found the xbox 360 very addicted and wanting the elite so bad..

    just because of the HDMI cable capacity.

  26. Hey, John, cooking up any new contests yet?

  27. You gave away a Wii for what?!!

  28. congrats dude. now let’s see who will win that zune.

    he gave away a wii for more advertisers to advertise in

    and that means a lot of money coming in.

  29. Love this traffic building idea man! The contests seem to be great when bringing in the traffic. I’m definitely going to take a page out of your book and design some sort of contest for my site soon.
