WordPress for Dummies – Prize Winners

Posted By Darren Rowse 16th of December 2007 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

Wordpress-For-DummiesLast week I ran a five day competition here at ProBlogger where every comment that you left on the blog put you into the draw to win a copy of WordPress for Dummies by Lisa Sabin-Wilson.

The post that I announced the competition on got quite a few comments in itself – but so did others over the week (there were close to 700 comments left over the five days across the blog) – so there was lots of competition.

Following are the five winners of the books chosen at random:

Congratulations to each of the winners. Lisa will be in touch shortly to arrange for delivery of WordPress for Dummies.

Thanks to everyone else for your participation in both the competition and community on ProBlogger. If you didn’t win you can always pick up a copy at Amazon for $16.49. Also you might have some luck in our next competition (next week) where the prizes will be a new template for your blog.

  • Please, let me be the first to congratulate you guys. I also noticed a couple of you guys working hard commenting despite the little fact that it was a random choice.

    Good work and good reading. Perhaps you bay be able to enlighten us with some of the little tips found within your new books on this blog in the near future?

  • Wow. That caught me off guard. I won something?

    I hope I can learn some interesting things from the book. I’m not bad with WordPress, but I’m sure there are plenty of things I’m missing out on.

  • Dan Schulz

    Congratulations, everyone. :)

  • Thanks Darren!

    I’m the same as Stephanie – I can believe I won something. Looking forward to giving this a read.

  • Congratulations to the winners. :)

  • Congratulations to the winners and bummer I missed this one.

  • Congratulations!

    The “for dummies” book series is a great one (not only for beginner)

  • Golly – thanks, ProBlogger! Looking forward to learning even more about WP!

    Keep up the great work on behalf of all of us bloggers!

  • Congrats to everyone! Too bad I didn’t win. I’ll check the book out anyway though.

  • Congratulations to everyone that won!

  • Abhijeet Mukherjee


  • Thank you! I’m surprised it was me who won something out of all those other commenters. I’m really excited to learn more about wordpress and probably would’ve ended up buying the book if I hadn’t won this.

  • Wohoo, I won! Thanks very much ProBlogger. I am really looking forward to getting the book as I need all the help I can get with making WordPress work for me.

    I am really enjoying blogging so far. It gives me a way to share my thoughts and experiences in a positive way while (hopefully) helping people at the same time. I want to make my blog the best it can be given the limited time I have to devote to it so the book will really help me, along with ProBlogger of course!

    Thanks again!

  • congrats to the lucky ones, any a merry christmas to all in advance :)

  • Mark, Peter, Stephanie, Jenni and David – congratulations on winning Darren’s contest! I’ve emailed each of you for shipping information and am excited to share some free WordPress goodness – right in time for Christmas, too!

    Thanks to everyone for their interest in the book – – and big thanks to Darren for running the contest. Darren – you take such good care of your visitors here at, you’re an inspiration to us all.

    Happy Holidays!

  • Congrats to the winners. I have this book and it’s great. It really helped me get our blog off the ground and running in no time.

  • “sad” i wasn’t able to join this would have been a great help for me.

  • I’m a bit late, but congratulations to all the winners! I took a quick look at the book last week at Borders and it seems like a great read for WordPress newbies.

  • Congratulations 2 every one
    i think this book is important to every one who use wprdpress as a blog
