Contest: Win an audio recording of your story

As of this moment (1:51pm EDT, Aug 16, 2010), I have 997 followers on Twitter, 95 followers on this blog, which has been visited 9,913 times.

CONTEST TIME!

There will be 3 Winners: my 100th blog follower, my 1000th Twitter follower and my 10,000th visitor.

How will I know who is who? Since I'm so close to hitting the trifecta, I will start counting from RIGHT NOW and keep going for the next 48 hours.

For each prize, I will randomly select from all of the new followers on Twitter, the new followers to this blog and everyone who leaves a comment on this post.

Prizes: a deluxe audio recording of one of your stories, suitable for podcasting, AudioBooing, etc. What makes it deluxe? Just listen to some sample recordings in various accents, and tell me how it could NOT be deluxe!

The contest starts RIGHT NOW, so be sure to follow, comment and tell your friends!

UPDATE: The contest is now closed! Winners are being contacted and a blog post announcing the results will go up on Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 7:00 am. Look for it then!

  3. I want to learn more about AudioBoo and how to put audio recordings on my blogspot.blog. Do I need to buy AudioBoo for Dummies???

  7. A prize so good it is tempting to create a couple of dozen alter-ego identities ... though that could be a fast track to psychosis. Good luck.

  16. Hey Tony, would it count if I unfollowed you, then refollowed you like 13 times (13 is a lucky number)? ;-)

    Fun way to get those numbers even!
