Like always, it is always fun to organize a contest. It is a great way to give something back to the readers and also, to encourage them to engage in our blog. The energy around this competition was really good. The best thing about organizing this contest was that it was very simple to participate (you were required to subscribe and tweet the contest article) and the prize was handsome – a prize of 100$.
The outcome of the contest was really good. There were many participants, the contest had a total of 54 entries and out of them 1 was to be chosen as the winner.
Before I announce about the winner, I would like to thank our contest sponsor:
The contest was sponsored by BookItNow which is an online travel resource site where you can book your holidays with ease. Also, you can get great deals on major tourist spots which can save you some money while you travel and enjoy.
The Team behind BookItNow is organizing a World Wild Travel Blog Party 2010 where you can participate and win an additional 200$ cash prize. The contest will end on 1st September 2010, so if you haven’t won a prize here, you can try this contest and maybe you get to win the 200$ cash prize for yourself.
How Did you pick the Winner?
As I mentioned earlier, I had used random.org to pick a winner randomly from the list of participants. As it was a random process, so you had to be lucky to win the contest.
And the winner is:
You need to send me your paypal email id, so that I’m able to transfer the cash prize to you.
I hope all of you guys, who missed the chance of winning this prize are still happy with the quality of content published at Blog Godown and I hope that similar contests like these become a regular feature at Blog Godown so that everybody gets a chance to win something
