Name Our New Site, Win an iPod Contest UPDATE

by Ed Lau on August 7, 2007

Thanks to everyone who has participated in our iPod contest so far. We’ve received over 100 domain suggestions thus far this week. I just have a few things I need to reiterate and update you all on:

  1. Michael and I have decided that due to the number of entries we’ve received from readers who do not have blogs of their own, anyone who does not provide the linkback we required or does not have a blog will only be eligible for the domain selection prize. That is to say that they can only win if we deem their domain suggestion as the best one. The random draw for the other iPod will only include those who have blogged about our contest using the correct anchor texts (“freelance writing” for Michael and “personal blog” for Ed).
  2. Please include the link to your blog post in the e-mail to so we can verify and confirm your entry as soon as possible.
  3. The random draw winner of the 4GB blue iPod Nano will be allowed to pick whichever color (except black) they want since I can exchange the blue for any other color. This does not apply to the winner of the best domain suggestion because 8GB iPod Nanos only come in black at retail stores.

That’s it! For all of our contest details, click here. Keep those entries coming!

Sweet! I can’t wait to see the results of this contest. Any comment on my name suggestion?

Ed, one question…I emailed my domain name suggestions before I had made the post on my site. Should I send an additional email with the link to my post or are the trackbacks enough? Hmm I just realized the trackback doesn’t look like it went through so I will send the email.

No harm in sending the email to make sure we get it.

I sent my amazing (hopefully) list! I thought about them all morning, until my head hurt. I might try to send another list before it closes in September!
