Affiliate Lounge Non-Contest Follow-up  

The best part of the Affiliate Lounge's non-contest wasn't earning an easy 500 Entrecredits, it was exchanging a few messages with site author Phillip van Coller. Nice guy, and considering that it was 3am his time (South Africa), a very generous guy indeed!

Affiliate Lounge's Non-Contest for 500 ECs Each  

There's such a thing as style points and Affiliate Lounge is definitely setting the standard for how to disburse Entrecredits. Here's the deal: Affiliate Lounge, one of the leaders in the Entrecard rankings, is flexing his spending muscles and tossing 20000 credits out to the tune of 500 ECs each for bloggers willing to do just what I am doing...writing about his site, linking back to it two times, including a screenshot or related picture, and commenting on the post to let him know where you posted.

I like this approach! I can appreciate that some Entrecarders are offering prizes of 350, 500, 1000 ECs or more, and I will still participate it those contests. But, honestly, I've got plenty of ECs myself and am playing along with Affiliate Lounge because of the boldness of his approach. I don't even know for sure that I am one of the first 40 bloggers to jump in and play, but it doesn't really matter. He wants to improve his rankings and I'll spend the 10 minute to help him out as a reward for his style. (But I'll still take the ECs if I qualify.) I like the way he thinks, as displayed in his post about Facebook and Entrecard.

So hustle on over to Affiliate Lounge and play along...you might even get 500 Entrecredits as a result!

Android Guys Inaugural Contest, 1750 EC Payout  

First place is 1000 EntreCard Credits!
Second place wins 500 Credits!
Third place wins 250 Credits!

There are plenty of ways to gain an entry into the contest: Comment on the Contest post on Android Guys site, drop an Entrecard on them, subscribe to their feed via email, write a blurb about the contest, put this ad (and link)

ON your site until the contest is over, and place another ad (see right sidebar) INTO your site until the contest is over.

The contest ends on January 31st at midnight (I think that what they meant to say as they are planning on announcing the winners on February 1st.)

Normally I wouldn't bother to display ads for another blog without any guarantee of remuneration, but this was such a cheeky request that I decided to go along with it.

3000 Entrecredits Up For Grabs at SBDC!  

SHANKER BAKSHI DOT COM has a January contest with 3000 Entrecard Credits to the winner. Shanker Bakshi describes himself as "cartoonist first, then a radio jockey, television anchor, caricaturist, voiceover artist, novelist..." and his blog subtitle is "The Miscellaneous Ramblings of a Dot Com Guru." recent posts include What is Page Rank? Everything you wanted to know about Google Search - Explained and What is RSS feed and how you can use it?

Enter by subscribing via email, which will earn you 5 entries, or via posting a 200+ word entry (and sending Shankar a copy via email), which will get you 3 entries.. I'm doing both...and it's not clear if that's allowed. Considering the effort to write a 200 word post, I would think that it would be worth several times the value of subscribing via email. Maybe it's just me, but perhaps Shankar will drop the post requirement by about 150 words for the next contest. Either way, I'm committed on this one and so 200 words it is. Do the 7 words in the title count? I suppose I should play it safe and assume they don't.

The contest is slated to end on January 31, 2008 and the winner announced and Entrecard Credits transferred on February 1st, 2008.

Broadcasting Brain 400 EC Contest Ends Today!  

The Canny Brain Broadcasting Blog is freeing some of his Entrecredits to migrate to another Entrecarder's account, but you'd better hurry as this one ends tonight! The rules are simple: post, link, and comment with your post url.

I Wanna Be A Shoeperstar!  

I'm venturing outside the Entrecard community to enter a contest that is being put on by some internet marketing rockstars, Jeremy Schoemaker of ShoeMoney and Ted Murphy of Izea. What's the grand prize? A chance to join Jeremy and Ted in an episode of Rockstartup, Web 2.0 Reality TV. Oh, and as the filming (yes, as in by a HD camera and possibly headed for national network distribution) takes place in Austin, Texas during the SXSW Interactive mega-event in March, you'll fly for free and be put up in a hotel (chosen by the staff, whom I hope isn't too warped with their humor) and given 1000 bucks to tip with, or whatever else you choose to spend it on while you are in town attending the conference via your free pass. All you have to do is convince the voting public that you deserve to be one of the 3 Finalists and then it's up to Jeremy and Ted to do the eenie-meenie-miney-mojo.

Why me?

Reason 1 - I am a committed Rock and Roll father. My two oldest sons have played in a local band called Side Dish for the past 6 years and when they were first starting out I functioned as their manager. (Nowadays I have been relegated to loading and unloading the band van.) They practice at our house and I really like their music! Even if Side Dish didn't make it to SXSW this year, I should be there to scout it out for them for next year!

Reason 2 - I'm a new and impressionable blogger and internet marketer. I have several blogs going at the moment and could really benefit from the collective wisdom of these two gurus!

Reason 3 - I'm a former AM Radio Talk Show host and can manage to speak without slobbering, and I'm actually a pretty good interviewer. I'd love to get these two guys under the hot lights and grill them about what they really think about Google AdSense!

Reason 4 - I have an interest in multiple intelligence theory and am well versed in temperament analysis, and I think that the world would benefit from as insights as to how Jeremy and Ted are similar, what makes them tick, and whether or not they'd pass a lie detector!

There you have it...4 reasons to pick me instead of one of a thousand hot blogger girls who would be more interesting to see on the show. I'll start packing...

1000 Thanks To Ken Brown of You Can Learn Series!  

Honestly, when I started entering these contests it was more of a hobby than with any real expectation of winning. And yet I found my Entrecard account 1000 Entrecard Credits fatter yesterday after winning 1st prize in the You Can Learn Series Scavenger Hunt / Contest. Ken has one of the more comprehensive sites I've run across while participating in the Entrecard community, but what impressed me more than his site or the 1000 ECs, was his willingness to implement a suggestion that each contestant be rewarded for entering the contest. The idea was to offer each Scavenger Hunter 5-10 ECs for their efforts. Ken ended up giving them each 100 ECs. Job well done, Ken!


RenaisNet's 10,000* EC January Contest  

Tom Hanna is running a contest at RenaisNet that most people seem to be ignoring or not abiding by the rules on, but it suits me. As of this writing there are only SEVEN people who have completed their entries, so make haste and head over to RenaisNet.com to enter!

The instructions aren't entirely clear as to whether on not you have to perform all 6 listed items or if the 6 are mutually exclusive methods of entering. What is clear is that you need to send Tom an email to validate each entry attempt! Tom is putting all of his Entrecard Credits up as the grand prize and is increasing the count each day until the end of January. He updates the total here.

*The 10,000 figure is my estimate of what the total prize will be at the end of the contest and is not binding. What a bummer it would be if it was only 9000 ECs!

You Can Learn Series Scavenger Hunt Contest  

This one ends soon...January 17th at 6 am ET. I made it more complicated than it needed to be based on how I read one of the 3 clues. So as not to invalidate my entry, I won't give you the entire clue that caused me to search fruitlessly throughout the You Can Learn Series site. This is what it says "What page can you find this partial image which is part of a larger image on the You Can Learn Series Website?" I interpreted that to mean where can I find the partial image (as it was shown) and not the larger image. Well, I found the larger image and not the partial image and after having invested more time in the contest than I intended to, I submitted the url of the larger image. I did think about sending the url of the contest page because it did contain the partial image and there was no rule prohibiting it.

1000 credits are up for grabs, and while the scavenger hunt was a good idea, I think that a 500 credit prize and 5-10 credits for everyone who sends in a correct entry might have been a better allocation. Most of these Entrecard contests just require me to subscribe, link or post and yet if I'm going to have to scrounge around someone's comprehensive site I'd like to know that my time expenditure was recognized.


$100 Cash Prize for this January Contest  

I admit it...I lifted the following from CK Marketing's site:
Win $100

It’s easy to enter

To gain entries into the contest, just do any of the following:

  • Subscribe to RSS via email = 2 entries (per blog you subscribe to!).
  • Make a comment of value (not just “i agree”, etc.) on a post = 1 entry (remember to comment on all blogs).
  • Write a post about the contest on your blog (must include a link to this page and the links below to participating blogs) = 25 entries.

How much easier can we make it? You can sneak in with just one entry by simply posting a comment here, you can increase your odds by reading and commenting on a few more posts here and at one of the blogs below and maybe subscribe to a couple, or you can really up the odds and subscribe to all all of our blogs (which you’ll enjoy reading anyway), comment on a bunch of posts, and blog about this contest. The more entries you earn, the better your odds, of course. If you’re going to post about this contest, just grab the image and code from here.

The deadline for this contest is 12:00 AM February 1, 2008.

Who wants to pay you?

Subscribe Via Email To Enter These Two Contests  

It's almost too easy:
DotSauce.com Lots of prizes to choose from....ends Tuesday January 15.
Saphrym.com 1000 ECs...Ends 2:35 pm ET Tuesday January 15.

jDonuts Link Love January Contest  

This one has a bit of a twist in that you don't have to write a post about it to enter. Instead, comment on jDonuts page with the name and link of another blogger whose post you really liked, or to play along, "love". I chose to list Emma's (Itswritenow.com) post about Words To Know Version 3, partly because I suspect she is a deipnosophist.

CyberStreet Report's HUGE Contest  

This one ends on January 19th, so get busy! CyberStreet Report (Helping Bloggers Spread Their Word) is sponsoring this contest and has a nice array of prizes (Banners, review, ECs and cash.) For the full details go here. Treat Reno right and you just might make it into his League of Authors!

Million Dollar Portfolio January Contest  

James Wilcox at the Million Dollar Portfolio has a contest running with the first prize of 500 ECs. Three ways to enter: Advertise on his blog with your Entrecard, write a comment, or post about the contest. His post and the rules are here.

PeterFoti.com January Contest  

This one is easy...just sign up via email here for the feed and contest entry. First prize is 1000 ECs, 2nd prize is 500 ECs. A visit to PeterFoti.com will also let you see his SitePal. Kinda creepy, but kinda cool at the same time. I went to their site but didn't sign up yet. There is a 15 day trial period and it appears to be $9.95 a month. Their site lists an affiliate program, so if you are interested, follow Peter's link and I'm sure he'll appreciate it.

Xaxier Media Blog Contest  

This is bread and butter:

Post about the contest that Xavier Media Blog is holding (until the 18th of January) and then comment with a link and you're in. Up for grabs is 350 Entrecard Credits. Good Luck! P.S. XavierMedia has some good info for webmasters and others re hosting. Check it out!

Bloggin-ads.com Big Contest  

Now here's a contest that is worth entering:

Mike at Bloggin-ads.com has put together the "One Heck of a Giveaway"Contest featuring prizes from many of the regulars in the Entrecard community. Entering is pretty easy and one method is to write a post like this one. Sans that, you can enter by subscribing to Bloggin-ads.com's feed (which I just did), posting a comment on sponsors' blogs, and digging or stumbling Mike site.

I see another benefit for newer members of the Entrecard community in that the listed sponsors comprise a group of very active bloggers from whom we can learn quite a bit. So comment, click, and post away!


There are going to be 12 different groups of prizes, which means there are going to be a total of 12 different winners. By adding up the value of all the prizes, I would say it is worth a least $1,000. Just for Max’s sponsorship of “500″ One Buck Wiki pages total a value of $500, which makes it one heck of a contest.

*Group 1*

*Group 2*

*Group 3*

*Group 4*

*Group 5*

*Group 6*

*Group 7*

*Group 8*

*Group 9*

*Group 10*

*Group 11*

*Group 12*

Every contestant is only able to win once. *EC = Entrecard Credits*

Winning The Web: Tyler Cruz vs. Gyutae Park  

Entering contests is what this blog is all about! Here's one that likely will have expired by the time that anyone ever reads this post, but I'm going for it anyway.

A couple of heavyweights are slugging it out in a featured bout that has plenty of spectators due to the potential of prize money being handed out to a lucky few. Tyler Cruz of TylerCruz.com and Gyutae Park of WinningTheWeb.com have squared off and are duking it out for bragging rights and plenty of links and mentions. This contest of web popularity is scheduled to have the final bell ring at 9 pm ET tonight (Jan. 14, 2008.)

Here are the rules and guidelines:
1) Your vote should have at least 300 words and should clearly indicate who you are voting for and why.
2) Link to the site you are voting for and link to both WinningtheWeb.com and TylerCruz.com when describing the contest.
3) You can only vote one time.
4) You can only win once.
5) Only voters choosing the victor are eligible to win cash prizes.
6) Leave a comment on your chosen blogger's site linking back to your voting post.

1) You get the thrill of entering a contest, replete with all the anticipation of possibly winning a prize!
2) You get your blog associated with a couple of heavyweights!
3) You get to participate in a great blogging community effort!
4) You don't have to come up with your own topic for a blog post!
5) You might win something!

Now, these combatants both seem like nice fellas, but my vote is going to...Gyutae at WinningTheWeb.com, if for no other reason than I figure he must be a drummer...and my 2nd son is a drummer. Good enough for me.

If you happen to read this post, head over here to WinningTheWeb.com and read the rules and then join me in voting for Gyutae!
