After a very hot day here (41 degrees Celsius – 106 degrees fahrenheit) where it was just too hot to sit in front of a computer and blog (plus I was marrying another couple in an outdoor wedding in the heat of the day – crazy stuff) I have logged onto my email tonight to find that the response for my call for Prizes for a ProBlogger competition has been overwhelming.
A massive thank you to all that have responded, at a guess your prizes must total up at a value that exceeds $2500 – and that’s just a conservative estimate).
In 24 hours there have been more prizes than I was expecting entrants in the competition and it’s caused em to pondering if perhaps I might need to re-assess the plans I had for the competition. If you’ve offered a prize and not heard from me yet, I’ll hope to get in touch with you in the next day or two (although tomorrow is going to be 43 degrees (110f) – and could hit 50 in front of my hot PowerMac ;-) ).
You’re welcome to continue offering prizes if you so desire – however I will say that I’m not sure I’ll be able to use them all and may end up saying thanks but no thanks (I hope I don’t offend anyone – I’ll attempt in my reassessing of the competition to expand it to use as many as possible). I particularly probably don’t need any more prizes that are hosting packages from the scan I’ve had of what’s been offered already. We probably already have enough Amazon gift vouchers also at this stage.
As I say – you are free to keep offering prizes though if you have something that might be suitable. I’m particularly looking for a couple of feature prizes for 1st place getters.
Stay tuned for more details of the competition. It may takes me an extra week to implement my bigger plans.
In the mean time – those who entered my domain naming competition will be happy to know that a winner has been selected. I’m now in the process of securing the domain (my host had some problems getting it today so hopefully it will be ours tomorrow) so I will announce the winner as soon as I can after that. I appreciate your patience.
