As I said when the CES Swag contest was over there would be another contest and here it is! I said I would be giving something away that is an accessory to something that most of you probably have, and I assume most of you have an iPod, new or old. I reviewed the iTrip Auto a while ago on ThinkComputers and they actually sent me 2, so why not give the extra one away! So this is not the used iTrip Auto (that is still in my car), this is a brand new, never opened one. The iTrip Auto is a small FM transmitter and charger designed for any iPod that has a dock connector, although it does not work with the iPhone. It retails for about $35 online.
Just like the CES Swag contest there are 2 ways to enter the contest. The easiest is by subscribing to my RSS feed via e-mail. You can do that at the bottom of this post or on the side of the page. The second way, which will actually give you 2 entries into the contest, is to blog about the contest linking back to the contest and having a link to BobBuskirk.com. Only blog posts that link to both the contest and BobBuskirk.com will be valid. Once you publish the post to your blog, post a comment or e-mail me to let me know it is online so I can add 2 entries for you. So in total you can have 3 entries into the contest.
The contest will run for 3 weeks and the winner will be randomly selected on Friday the 28th. The contest is only open to residents of the United States and Canada. If you have any questions please let me know.
How Contests Improve Readership
Contests are my way of giving something back to my readers. Sure I write some decent posts and some that are helpful to other people but that does not always keep people around. Contests are a great way to increase your readership and also give something back to the people that read your blog. Whether you do RSS, linkbacks, etc it always helps out your blog in one way or another. If you are stuck on RSS readers or the same amount of traffic try out a contest it will help!
