Yesterday I extolled upon you the joys of the list post. Really, when a list hits and goes viral, there’s nothing like it. Plus I find them a lot of fun to write. Don’t take my word for it though, I’d like you to try it out for yourself. In fact, we want to make a contest of it.
What’s the Plan, Stan?
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make a list post. That’s it, really. Between now and the end of the day April 20th, you must post a list on your blog.
Are there Rules?
Oh yes. Without rules chaos ensues. Can’t have that.
- This list post must pertain to your niche. Unless you don’t have a niche, then you have free range.
- The post must be a numbered list post.
- The post must have at least five items
- This must be a new post and not one previously written
- The post has to be on a blog.
- Entries must be received no later than 11:59 on April 20th to qualify.
- Post a link to your list in the comments.
While a link back to Network Blogging Tips is always appreciated, it’s not necessary. That isn’t why we’re doing this. We know network bloggers come up with some creative ideas. Let’s show everyone how creative we can be.
Tell us about the prize, Deb
Oh yes, the prize. Glad you asked. The winner of the Network Blogging Tips Blogging Challenge will win a OneTouch 4 Mini 250 GB external hard drive, worth $129.00. I have one I’m using right now and this is an awesome prize. Use it to back up your machine for the dreaded “just in case” or use it to store images and other memory-sucking files. I found since using portable hard drives and flash drives I don’t have as many issues with a slow laptop. Plus I know if I ever have a really bad crash everything’s on the external and I’m not so screwed. It’s easy to use, just plug it into your USB port and go. This is a cool get, folks.
Sounds good, I’m going to make my list right now!
Believe us when we tell you we can’t wait to see your lists. Remember, a good list post is one that entertains, enlightens and amuses. A good list is discussed, debated and added to for months to come. Enjoy blogging, I know we’ll enjoy reading.
