The SheWalksSoftly Mystery Prize Contest
I’ve had a fantastic time writing this blog so far. I’m trying to determine whether I can continue posting while in grad school.
My conclusion: if I gather enough readers who want the site to stay afloat, I’ll keep it up.
I’ve yet to attempt any real self-promotion. Sure, there are many strategies to optimize search engine rankings, ratings, stats, etc. (which I admit I haven’t explored because I didn’t want this to feel like a “business”). I’m wondering if decent growth is at all possible through a good ol’ fashioned sense of community.
I want to try an experiment in the form of a contest. I’ll put together a special gift package for the person who makes the biggest effort to share this blog. Even if you don’t aim to win the prize, I’d greatly appreciate any small support such as:
1) An email forwarding the link
2) Bulletins/links on social networking sites
3) A referral or link from your own blog/website
4) Use of social bookmarking
5) Any/all of the above, or anything I haven’t thought of…be creative
It’s the effort that counts. Just make sure to tell me what you did!
Deadline: Sunday, November 23rd.
I’m perfectly willing to hand out multiple prizes if warranted, and promote your projects in return. Although there’s a deadline for the actual prize, I’ll always do what I can to help those who help me.
