Group Writing Project – The Prize Winners Are….

Posted By Darren Rowse 18th of August 2006 Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

Having come to the end of this week’s writing project I have a mixture of feelings.

  • Excitement301 entries (a record), loads of interlinking between blogs, numerous reports of posts hitting it big around the blogosphere
  • Tiredness – I’ve got to get a better system for uploading submissions – I’ve done it all manually again and it’s taken way too long
  • Inspiration – Some of the submissions this week have been amazing and have introduced me to some great new blogs that I’d not come across before.

I’m also really overwhelmed by everyone’s excitement and willingness to participate. While I’m a little worn out I’m also energized – especially at this moment having just randomly selected those bloggers who are going to receive one of the five gifts on offer.

The way I selected the prize recipients was to use a site called which has a tool for selecting random numbers. I assigned each submission in the week a number and the five numbers the site spat out to me are the following five winners who win the following five gifts.

So there we have it. Congratulations to the recipients of the gifts. I’ll be in touch with you in the next day to let you know how you collect your prize.

One last special thank you to our sponsors – Blake Schwendiman, The Web Directory, URLTrends, The Gold Pages Directory and Earners Forum. I appreciate your generosity greatly.

  • Congratulations, winners!

    Thanks again, Darren, for the great contest!

  • This is simply fantastic. I have more lists now than I know what to do with! Looks like I won’t be getting much done at work today.

  • Congrats to you all, this was a great project and I loved reading all the lists!

  • Alright!! Congratulations All!

    I think this was definitely a win-win situation for everyone. :-)


  • This was one of the best projects. All the winnders are very deserving. Cngratulations to them all.

  • Congratulations to everyone! Great job!

  • Congratulations to all the winners. And to everyone who submitted a list… I haven’t been to every site as there are simply too many and after an 8 hr work day it’s hard finding the time after that to read each submission but I’m getting to some slowly but surely.

  • Hats off to all who won! And another hat off to everyone who participated. Thank you.

  • Wow, thanks a million! I know I already thanked you by e-mail this morning, but I wanted to do so more publically. :-) I can’t wait to use the massager. Goodness knows I could use it!

  • Hey, congratulations to all the winners! This was really fun! =)

  • Congrats, all!

    Darren, great contest. I think all of us can say we enjoyed it; even if all we have to show for it is another entry in the archives. :)

  • Awesome contest. I’ve found a bunch of blogs that I will now be reading regularly. Thanks to Darren and everyone who participated!

  • Congrats winners. I also want to thank Darren for doing this project. So many people mention your site when I ask for advice, so I was glad to get to know it a bit more. You give some great advice. And, I just want to say that my favorite post, as I’ve told her already, is Caryn’s (but, because of her, I didn’t get as far as I wanted to in the lists — I kept playing around in her site. But if you haven’t seen her list, it’s hysterical. Go look at it.

  • Thanks, Donna! I appreciate the plug. I enjoyed reading your list, as well. :-)

  • Not sure why the “10 best ways to win an argument” is at the top of list as I know I couldn’t use any of these if I was arguing with my better half. :)

    I’ve just added Problogger to my Blogroll. Thanks for all of the traffic and for considering my list. Congrats to the winners!!
