I ran my first contest a short while ago and it was my most commented on post yet. Granted there were only 6 entrants. Since there were only six entries I just decided to pull names out of a hat. Also, I went with three prizes simply because there was little interest.
Geoff won the first place prize. He will receive a free sponsored post, a 125×125 ad, and a backlink in my blog roll.
Bloggernoob won second earning him a free 125×125 ad and a blog roll link.
Neil won third earning him a free backlink and I’ll throw in another 125×125 to even it out with my Entrecard ad.
These bloggers must simply comment to receive their prizes.
There are many benefits of commenting on blogs. Like for example, the free mentioning in my blog that was given away to all commentors of a previous post.
Rory of Online Money
Craig of Gamer Reviews
and Blake of Illiterate Poet all saw the benefits of commenting.
