The Blogversary Contest Dilemma

Cripes. I was in bed last night thinking about a novel gimmick for the blogversary contest but my creative juices aren't flowing for some reason. So I went looking for other contests this morning as per Fedhz's suggestion and I think I've already come up with a couple and I'm just polishing off their details so I don't go haywire by the end of the contest. Since I love getting comments, that will definitely be the main point contributor. And yes, this will be a point-system contest. I'd most probably be getting three winners, so the top three people who get the most points will snag the prizes.

I still need more rules, methinks, but anyways, before that I'd be glad for sponsors from you guys. Cash, would of course, take precedence over any other form of sponsorship (as who doesn't like cold-hard cash as against other stuff? Obviously we all need that.), and I just like to stress that cash sponsors would get bigger benefits from the contest. BUT that doesn't mean I won't accept other types of offerings. Anything you think is of value is good enough for me. Heck, if you think an autographed photo of you is deemed valuable by others then why not offer it as a prize? Just kidding. DON'T send me photos. I'll disqualify you from the contest. LOL.

So there. I'll be contacting those who expressed interest in becoming sponsors through email (Thank YOU from the bottom of my jaded heart, by the way). This sponsorship hoarding episode was supposed to only run for a week to allow three weeks for the contest. But since there are contests left and right which are taking place right now, I had second thoughts about it. I might (my mind is not made up yet. dang) extend the period for the sponsorship hunting to two weeks, and lengthen the contest period to for weeks (thus I will not be giving away the prizes during the exact date of my blogversary). But I promise I'll post here all the prizes I've managed to gather together with the contest rules (that leaves me two weeks to think about more rules. holy mackerel) so watch out for that post. Which reminds me, I better get to work on those sponsorships if I want to achieve the goal I have in mind (not clear-cut goals, mind you. More like flashes of wishful thinking).

Let's see. What else. Hmmm. Nothing else comes to mind. I'll edit this later if necessary. For now I think I need to contact Ken Brown again to see if it's possible to give away a month or two of Adgitize advertising as a top prize. Take my word for it. A month with Adgitize will do wonders on your blog, your readership, your paid opportunities and, well, basically everything. Adgitize will rock your world, seriously. And this post isn't even paid by Adgitize. That alone says a lot. I mean you can only extract praises from me if you pay me enough. LOL. Kidding. Anyway, yeah. I hope you're as excited as I am. *grins*

P.S. And THEN there's the plan to integrate my contest with Pehpot's own blogversary which will also be on November (originally, it was Fedhz and Peh's plan). We had such an insightful conference yesterday (we talked about porn, of all things. wtf). Oh dear. I never thought holding a contest would be such a pain in the neck to plan. Might I follow Jade's wise decision NOT to hold a contest for the sake of my sanity? LOL. Don't kill me. I'll still have a contest by hook or by crook. WHEN is the biggest question.
