How To Project – Final Submissions

Posted By Darren Rowse 22nd of September 2006 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

How-ToThe ‘How To…’ Group Writing Project is now officially over.

Thanks to all who have participated – you’ve overwhelmed me with your responses (quite literally). Today was the biggest response for this project with 112 submissions bringing us to a total of 343 (the biggest one we’ve done so far).

Thanks to the sponsors of this week’s project. Without New Homes, Webmaster-Talk.com forums, Google Tutor and OwnMySeat.com we’d not have the prizes (below) which all participants are in the running for (I’ll announce the winners in a few hours).

This latest batch of submissions are once again a real reflection of the blogosphere at large. There are tips on such a variety of topics that it leaves me shaking my head at the creativity and diversity of bloggers.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s project – I certainly had fun reading many of the submissions and was really excited to see so many of the blogs participating getting linked to from other parts of the web as a result.

The challenge for us all now is to surf the list – find the posts that we enjoyed the most and start linking up to them. Surf the full list, find those that you resonate with the most and post your top 5 (or more) on your own blog. This way the project goes to the next level and through it some great new blogs will get the recognition they deserve.

Thanks again for participating. Here’s the final round of submissions:


At the end of the week once all submissions are in I’ll randomly select five submissions who will each receive one of the following five prizes:

  • One week complimentary stay (for up to 4 people) at a beach front apartment in Estepona on the Costa del Sol Spain (pictured above). This prize must be taken in the next 12 months and the winner must cover all their own costs in getting to Spain (ie this is for the cost of the accommodation only). If the prize cannot be taken by the winner they can also take an iPod (video) instead (by negotiation with the sponsor). This prize (valued at 1000 euros if taken in the peak season) has been kindly donated by New Homes on Nubricks.com. Thanks to Adam and Chintan.
  • $100 Cash (in your paypal account) OR a month long text link in the Webmaster-Talk.com forums. This prize sponsored by Webmaster-Talk.com forums – thanks to Tim and his team.
  • A Personal license for ExpressionEngine including a personal license for the forums module (worth $149). This prize is sponsored by Marcus from Nanoblogs.de
  • A $149 yearly plan to Audible.com OR a $100 gift voucher to iTunes (your choice). This gift has been donated by Google Tutor. Thanks to Craig for this gift.
  • $200 gift voucher from Amazon to spend on anything you like. Its been kindly donated by OwnMySeat.com. Thanks to Jason for his kind donation.
