Yes, you counted right – there are 24 great prizes available for this giveaway! All of which are suited toward entrepreneurs, professional bloggers, and anyone who has a website of some kind!
How to enter:
All you need to do in order to win one of the great prizes above is to write a brand new (sorry, no archives allowed) post on your site that gives blogging tips. You may feel free to adapt it to the topic and style of your blog in any way you see fit, as long as it’s some kind of “tip” about “blogging”.
Are you a “mommy blogger”? Write a post tip about how to actively blog and deal with the bubblegum in your child’s hair at the same time.
Are you a “travel blogger”? Write a post tip about what someone traveling abroad might need to bring with them in order to”keep up the flow” of their writing/posting while away.
Are you a “foodie blogger”? Write a post tip about the best snacks to have at your desk for maximum food-to-brain flavor and power.
See? You don’t have to have a blog about blogging in order to enter! ;)
When you’re done, put the link to your entry in the comments below. Feel free to suggest what prize you’d most be interested in, and if the random generator chooses you, we’ll do our best to get you either that prize or one of the ones close to it. There’s no guarantee you’ll get the one you ask for – but we will do our best.
If you want your readers to know that you’re participating in this then please do feel free to link up so they can participate too – but it is NOT a requirement to link back to ProBlogger in any way.
Remember, this activity closes at noon on Thursday (EST) so get writing!
Notes: One entry per person (NOT per blog), and if you are chosen to win one of the above prizes, you will not be chosen to win anything else for the duration of the giveaway week.
These prizes not your cup of tea? Check out the other great prizes up for grabs during the giveaway!

If I won, I’d love to get the entrepreneurial prizes from Egg Marketing, or Kirsty Dunphey. :D
Here’s my post: http://www.pingable.org/blogging-tips-and-advice/
If I win anything I would be keen for a custom logo design by David Airey. Or the premium design/dev WordPress package from Nathan Rice.
I can understand. Rule should be same for everyone.
I will be happy if the people just read the posts.
A post about using blogs to enhance tabletop roleplaying games:
Anything that would increase my traffic would be nice as I’m anew blogger :P

Sorry about that Michael! EST United States… New York, in fact. :)
critix – the ad spot is NOT here on problogger.net – it’s on the sponsor’s site.
Here are my tips;
I would like a custom design please….or a custom anything :)
My tip is on how to beat writers block, but I also did a wordpress 2.3 upgrade guide for those that might need it.
I would be most interested in anything entrepreneurial, marketing, or organization related.
This is my blog tip for this little contest..
If a win a prize it doens’t really matter what prize, anything would be great. I’d rather have people to read my blog than to win prizes. Good luck.
Just one tip from me – at http://schoolstjude.blogspot.com/
If you’re not on a learning curve, you’re going nowhere.
Funny actually this article was on my list to write anyway, but its how to use Yahoo Pipes to filter news feeds. Very useful for trawling feeds for content to write about
Any of those prizes would be fantastic, I guess if I had to choose I would go with the analysis or consulting ones. Please nothing wordpress related as I don’t use it.
Good luck to all!

Dear Gods of the Contest and other benign beings:
Here is my blogging tip, hope no one else had it too:
As for prizes, my priorities would be as follows:
a) Any of the iPod prizes, from spiffiest to plainest
b) Any of the cash prizes from largest amount to smallest amount.
c) Anything else would be cool, too. I’m really not that picky.
That was not that hard. Made me think and look deep inside to see why I started a blog.
I am new at this. I can use all the help I can get. That is why I read Problogger.
Great contests and prizes – thanks!
