Win Something Useful This Month!

Well it’s another month, and my “Top Comment Whores” have been reset to ZERO. Time for a contest!


Win Something Useful This Month!

This month, I’d like to reward the “Top Comment Whore” by giving him or her a shiny new Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000. By competing for the top comment whore spots, you also get a free DIRECT LINK from my site to yours by staying in the TOP FIVE for the whole month. To top it off, the winner at the end of the month will be mentioned on my blog and if you have a blog of your own, I’ll be linking your blog in my winners post. How do you like them apples?

So you don’t need to review my blog. You don’t need to add me to your Technorati Favourites ,though that would be nice. Finally, you will win something totally useful that you use everyday! Heck, you’re using one right now!

So if you have any questions, post a comment Win Something Useful This Month!

Contest starts…NOW! Goodluck!

      your gonna have to step your game up because your last on the list right now buddy, and michael and i are pulling away pretty strong.

      • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

        A challenge!!! I love it! :D

      • http://www.mynewchoice.com My New Choice

        I’ve got a long way to go but don’t think you have this thing wrapped up just yet. Lol.

        • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

          im sure that many people have already given up on it seeing how far ahead michael and I are, ill have to keep an eye on the leaders board though, its only the 8th, 20 more days to go?

          • http://www.mynewchoice.com My New Choice

            I’ll have to go into stealth mode and slowly creep up on you and then pounce with a flurry. Lol, I don’t want to detract from the quality of comments though so I think I will stay patient for another time.

            Enjoy that mouse, unless of course I do sneak up and steal it.

            • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

              well, there is no guarantee that its mine, michael is pretty high up there. And like stephen said, there will be plenty of contests, im excited that he is so generous and willing to help others out. thanks stephen.

            • http://www.mynewchoice.com My New Choice

              Seeing these contests has me thinking of one for my site, albeit with a financial theme. I’ve actually got a query into a site I subscribe to on how I can create a gift membership to give away for 1 year. Although I am also asking if they would like to donate said membership, but since my site is pretty new and doesn’t have much weight, I am not too confident that will happen.

            • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

              I think Nick wants to win! He’s even sucking up to the judges :D

              You’re welcome guys! So many new people I’ve never heard from before. This is great! :)

            • http://www.blog.trbn.com Thinkreferrals

              oh, does sucking up count? Never mind.

    • http://www.mynewchoice.com My New Choice

      Cool contest, hopefully I will be able to post again as I was having trouble before.

    • http://www.blog.trbn.com Thinkreferrals

      Great idea for a contest, I guess we can see how much time I really have on my hands. should be fun.

      • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

        to be honest, im not sure if i want to know how much time i have on my hands… it may depress me.

        • http://www.blog.trbn.com Thinkreferrals

          good point, I guess I’m depressed now.

    • http://www.dvhardware.net ThomasDM

      Nice contest :) I’m currently using the Logitech MX1000 mouse and I’m very pleased with it.

    • Fahari

      Ehm, ok.

      For a mouse like that, boy you bet I should not win coz you will have to ship it down here where ‘the last king of Scotland’ was shot from.Uganda.

      Are u up for the show?

      • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

        I think you’re in for some HEAVY COMPETITION. But if you win, I will definitely make sure you get your mouse…even if I have to toss the box and ship it in a bubble envelope ;)

        • http://michaelkwan.com Michael Kwan

          Saves on shipping! It’s not like he’d need the box anyways. :)

    • http://btr.michaelkwan.com Michael Kwan

      Let the comment whoring begin! I wouldn’t mind a new mouse.

      • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

        It’s funny. Last night, when I was posting this, you were the first person to whore as the counters reset to ZERO. When I was done posting, you were at 2 posts. Yet you’re the last one to chime in here :D

        • http://btr.michaelkwan.com Michael Kwan

          I must have been the only one who was awake. As such, I was the last one to wake up this morning to see this post?

    • Rosie

      This will be my last comment until the contest is over! Your top comment whores are already linked…how does winning provide any extra special attention for your top whore?

      • http://voipedup.blog.ca Fluxx

        Hrmm…she does have a point… Other than the mouse… As I said i’m just gonna comment like I always comment. Odds are some dude will come in and spam u and win the mouse then disappear anyways… hehe.

        • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

          I can still delete comments that are really SPAM. But if you’re on topic, and contribrute, there is nothing to worry about.

      • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

        The list resets EVERY MONTH. That means no more linky doodle unless the person keeps commenting consistently EVERY MONTH. Also, people can get knocked out of the top comment whore list before the end of the month if they stop commenting.

        By winning, you get a permanent plug on a PR4 blog in my winning comment whore announcement, and you get the mouse.

        • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

          what is the difference between a permanent link, anda link that gets added everymonth but skips off for about 5 or so hours? does google and other analytics really see a difference?

          • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

            A search engine will rank a site with fewer permanent links lower than one with more permanent links. That’s why winning this contest and getting that permanent link in my winners post is a big incentive ;)

            However, since people are curious, they’ll probably click on your link anyway to find out who my Comment Whores are.

            • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

              i know they are curious :P ill probably shoot a screen shot of my wordpress page that tells where my incomming links are from, i believe most of them are from john chows blog where I frequently rack up comments :P

            • http://michaelkwan.com Michael Kwan

              I’ve noticed an increase in traffic to my blog after “racking up comments”, as you say, on John’s blog as well.

            • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

              i get about 40 unique visitors per day right now and i think at least half of them come from chow or stephen.

    • http://www.bluefur.com BlueFur

      Looks like February is contest month in the blog sphere. Good Luck everyone!

      • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

        thanks, good luck with blue fur hosting, i hope the succeed.

    • http://www.thomaswalker.net Thomas Walker

      Sweet idea! That text link ad cost me about $40 so a free link in a permanent post would be pretty useful, and I’ve needed a new mouse for a while. Hmm… You should hope I don’t win to save on the postage :P

      • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

        Where do you live? I’ve shipped stuff around the world. I sort of know what to expect.

        • http://www.thomaswalker.net Thomas Walker

          I’m in the UK – so it could be worse :P

          • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

            You’re CommonWealth. If you win, I’ll get it to you. But you’re responsible for the VAT and CUSTOMS :lol:

            • http://btr.michaelkwan.com Michael Kwan

              Ew, customs. Combined with VAT, it might be cheaper for him to just to BUY a mouse. :)

            • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

              I’ll “fudge” the value for him ;)

            • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

              how much would it be to ship it to me in South Carolina?

            • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

              Are you asking because you want to chip in for shipping? :lol:

            • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

              if i win, i dont mind. it would still be cheaper than purchasing a new mouse.

            • http://michaelkwan.com Michael Kwan

              This is starting to sound a bit like an eBay conversation between buyers and sellers.

              How much is shipping to xxxx?
              Does that include insurance?
              Do you use USPS, UPS, Fedex, or…?
              When should I expect the item?

            • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

              You forgot…

              “Can I pick up locally?”

            • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

              speaking of ebay i used it for the first time the other day to buy text books, i saved about $150 doing it that way, of course i will get them in about 2 weeks, but thats fine.

    • http://voipedup.blog.ca Fluxx

      Awww stephen…u don’t have to bribe me to comment! Just keep writing posts that elicit the need to speak! Having said that, who doesn’t have use for a spanky new mouse?

      • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

        For some reason, the filters think you’re a SPAMMER. I have to keep rescuing your comments :lol:

        • http://twitchy67.wordpress.com Fluxx

          you probably marked me as spam cuz you were mad at me for a post somewhere hehe.

          • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

            Software doesn’t lie. You were bad somewhere :lol:

            • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

              it was doing that to me last month, every other comment had to be moderated, it was really annoying because i am a scoreboard whore and wanted to climb to the top fast.

            • http://michaelkwan.com Michael Kwan

              Go Nick Go. At the beginning of this week, I was on top of the commentators list, but as I type this, you have a solid 10 comment lead on me. Getting that mouse is getting more and more difficult!

            • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

              your darn right its a battle. I predict i will have about 250 + comments, as long as stephen churns out the posts and he replies to my comments.

    • http://blogs.blogosphere.ca/alstrong Alexei

      No! It’s wired! I only use wired for my laptop! Hm… it looks ambidextrous with the symmetrical design. Perhaps a link to the MS specs page is in order for the laaazy. ;)

      Tyler: What IS up with your blog? It’s been gone for quite some time…

      • http://www.tingram.ca Tyler

        Well there are some issues happening in the home life so until I’ve straightened them out the site is down and my internet access its really limited. (well I dont have net access at home actually).

        :)

      • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen
        • http://blogs.blogosphere.ca/alstrong Alexei

          Thanks Firewire. ;)

          Aw nuts… hope things get sorted out for ya, Tyler. :)

          • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

            me too, i went like 3 years without the internet at one point, it may not seem bad but when you go from spending at least 1-1.5 hours a day online and then not having it except for when you go to the library it is really hard on you. I had withdrawal symptons.

            • http://michaelkwan.com Michael Kwan

              I don’t think I could survive without the internet anymore (especially since my work is 99% online)

            • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

              well, i was in high school so, the internet wasnt my lifeline at the time, it was really just a time waster so that i could talk to friends or play counter strike

    • http://www.pensinsider.com Kris Karkoski

      Good contest, good prize…I’m in. Love the blog. I have really been getting into the whole web entrepreneur thing and your blog is one of several that act as real inspiration. Keep up the good work, I will be checking in often!

      • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

        Thanks Kris. That means a lot. Good luck in the contest. It’s going to be a slobber knocker! ;)

        • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

          whatever that means, but i agree, this is going to get ugly.

          • http://michaelkwan.com Michael Kwan

            The only time I’ve ever heard the term slobber knocker was from Jim Ross’ mouth.

            • http://www.futurelooks.com Stephen

              Yeah, that and “Barn Burner” :D

    • http://www.tingram.ca Tyler

      Oh so what’s special about the mouse huh?

      Perhaps one day I’ll get my matters all sorted out and be able to have my site back so that these direct non-nofollow links will actually do me good!

      • http://whatsthefuss.net Nick Witkoski

        I think tyler should be excluded from the competition to make it easier for the others…
