I’m thinking of holding a contest, but I haven’t figured out just what I want to do or how I want to do it yet.
I’ve done some contests in the past, but I haven’t held one for a long time! Contests I’ve held in the past have been caption contests for amusing photos. I think I want to do something different this time round since caption contests are fairly subjective. What I think is a great caption others might not agree with – those kind of contests are probably best done with a few judges.
Whatever I do, there will be a prize involved. I’m thinking of giving away $50. The winner will have to have a paypal account.
What would you do to win $50? Write a post about my site? Or maybe I could come up with a few phrases to fit into a post – however you want and the best post would win? I could have site visitors vote on the posts? What do you think? Is $50 a good prize?
Give me some ideas and suggestions please.
Actually, if this works out well maybe I’ll do a contest on EACH of our blogs. Hmmm that would give readers of my husband and I’s blogs NINE chances to win some money. I’d be a chunk out of my pocket change, but if it increased readership or RSS subscribers it would be worth it.
