As you all know today was the deadline for my Second Contest with Inspiration Bit. I will announce the two winners and prizes on April 10th.

Now it’s time for the Third Contest with Inspiration Bit. This time the prize is generously sponsored by Ronald from RA Project. The prize is a $50 Amazon Gift Certificate that will be awarded to the Top Commentator on April 13, 2007. I will check who has the most comments by April 13th at 12:00pm PST and will announce the winner (the comments counter was reset on April 1st)

Please note, that since Ronald Huereca, a.k.a Ronalfy, is sponsoring this contest, should he achieve the Top Commentator status on my blog, the prize will be awarded to the next Top Commentator.

I look forward to your insightful comments (spamming won’t be tolerated here). Good luck to you all.

Two more contests with Inspiration Bit are coming soon, so make sure you are subscribed to my RSS feed if you don’t want to miss the future announcements.

13 Insightful Bits in response to “Third Contest with Inspiration Bit”

  1. Brilliant idea. No matter who wins everyone should benefit from a more active discussion.

  2. Agreed with Andrew Rickmann. Two more contests?! That’s really so cooool. :)

  3. ibit

    Glad you liked the idea.

    Since I’ve installed this new Edit comments plugin here, nobody can justify submitting multiple comments just because there was a typo or wanted to add smth to the comment. So, yes, my hope for this contest is to see more interesting discussions on this blog, I’d like to see people comment because they have something to contribute, ask, dispute, not comment for the sake of submitting the biggest number of comments.

    Welcome to my blog, Jess. In less than 15 minutes you’ve already placed yourself high in my Top Commentators list. I can tell that this prize interests you a lot, hopefully you’ll find my blog’s content interesting as well :-)

  5. Jess

    I’ve told my friend’s about this contest and I hope they start posting real soon! :) I think your content is really interesting and I definitely bookmarked your blog! (I’m going to favorite it later) I’m spreading the word about Inspiration Bit and I hope there’ll be more comments in the future!

    And with 2 more contests coming up, I hope Inspiration Bit will gain more readers!

  6. This is probably one of the more clever contests I’ve seen. You’ve been reading Daniel’s blog too much — he’s starting to rub off on you. That’s not such a bad thing though, he gives good advice.

    On a side note, how was week 1 of the new job? Are you blogging on your lunch break yet?

  7. ibit

    My first week on the new job was great. I really enjoy it a lot. I’ve already started working on actual projects and even attended one client meeting. No, I’m not blogging on my lunch break yet :-)

  8. No lunch blogging? You just wait. If I don’t shoot off a new post at lunch, I’m at least drafting one up. I was just curious because you seem to be keeping pace with the pre-job post rate.

  9. ibit

    Thanks. I’m trying to keep my regular blogging routine. I’m catching up with my blogging either after work or before :-) I doubt though that I’ll be able to keep up with it after RAW.

  10. Bes

    I would love to have another Amazon gift “card” after Ronald awarded me one earlier this year. :D However, I doubt I can catch up to Jess, unless I start posting only “:D” to every post here. :p

  11. ibit

    no, that would be considered a spam, Bes :-)

    I think I should rename my Top Commentator’s list to Fast Commentators.
    Initially Jess has posted a record number of comments within a 15 minutes frame. Hurrah for Jess :-)

Hi, I'm Vivien. Thanks for visiting my Inspiration Bit. I often find myself scouring the internet looking for either answers to many questions I have or websites that inspire me, sites that I can learn from. On what topics you might ask — any topics that interest me, anything from web design to typography and art, from blogging to entrepreneurship, from programming to open source.
