I’ve entered quite a few blog contests here at Philaahzophy and won a few as well. It’s time for me to give back. Thanks to my massive $500 win recently I’m able to sponsor a contest of my own.

The Prizes

  • Random Draw – $50 payable via PayPal (or check to those without PayPal accounts)
  • Best Review – $25 payable via PayPal (or check to those without PayPal accounts)

The Contest-

I’ve tried to make things both interesting and simple at the same time. All you need to do to enter is write a 100+ word review of Philaahzophy (the blog or the philosophy presented here) on your blog. You must include at least two links:

  1. http://www.philaahzophy.com
  2. A trackback (or pingback) to this post

That’s all there is to it. No need for the review to be positive as long as it’s honest and at least somewhat useful to your readers (and/or myself). The point here isn’t so much to generate traffic or advertise Philaahzophy as to get constructive feedback from other bloggers on what I’m doing here.

Prize Details-

Every entry will be assigned a number and at the end of the contest I will have Z draw a number out of a hat. The person whose number is selected will win the $50 prize.

Additionally, I will be reading all of the entries (of course), and the best review, in my sole opinion, will receive the $25 prize.

Yes, you may win more than one prize.

Yes, you may enter from more than one blog, but the reviews should be substantially different.

The Deadline-

This contest will end in roughly 5 weeks, at midnight (PST) Saturday November 17th

EDITED 11/08/07 –

Removed required anchor text out of fear that it’s the reason my PR dropped from 3 to 2 today

Removed ‘Instant Win’ dollars for two reasons: 1) seemed to be generating garbage reviews, and 2) fear of it contributing to the aforementioned PR drop

  1. […] Philaahzophy recently won $500 in a contest and so they have decided to give a little back by running something themselves. In order to enter you need to write a 100 word minimum review of their blog and include a couple of links. Once that has been done you will be in a random draw to win $50 via Paypal, win $25 if your review is judged to be the best (no details provided, but I assume the most comprehensive review?), and you will also win $1 instantly if your post generates a blog reaction on Technorati.
