With his recent USB contest giveaway, participants were required to post a comment as to why they should win the USB drive. Stephen was generous enough to donate one dollar per entry (up to $100) for every person who entered the contest. Even though only 12 people entered, he topped up the amount to $25. Requirements for comment posts had to be somewhat humorous to crack him up. Here is what I wrote that won the contest for me:
Here are the TOP 3 reasons why you should give this USB flash drive to Gdog:
1. I get to see inebriated Koreans puke all over the sidewalks and subway stations…it’s so darn cool because their puke is orange color–due to the consumption of kimchi I’m assuming.
2. If I win this, I’ll dedicate a post to you and give you lots of link love…people always click on my links!
3. I was worried about your blog when it got hacked and posted a comment about it on John’s blog. I don’t know if he called you because of my comment, or if he found out himself. Nevertheless, I tried to draw attention to your blog being down.
BONUS REASON: I could really use that usb flash drive to transfer files to and from work.
That’s it…thanks for the contest.
