I have a major announcement to make! Well, at least it is a major announcement for ME.
I recently took the plunge and bought the domain name learnmegood.com. It was unfortunately already owned by someone, so I had to pay more than I would have otherwise, but the guy agreed to sell it to me, the mandatory tranfer waiting time is finally over, and if you go to http://www.learnmegood.com/ you will see---
Well, you'll see this same site. TA-dah.
Hold that, it really IS a major TA-DAHHH!!!
Because for one thing it's so much easier to tell someone to go to learnmegood.com than it is to tell them to go to learnmegood2.blogspot.com. It also just sounds a heck of a lot cooler.
So with a brand new address, even if it's not a brand new site, I figure it's a great time to have a Grand Opening contest. Give away some Learn Me Good swag -- T-shirts and books. And I hope that everyone will participate and help me spread the word (again, it will be so much easier to tell your friends about learnmegood.com than learnmegood2.blogspot.server.internet.website.random.confusion.dot.dot.com)
I'm going to give away 2 T-shirts from my Spreadshirt Store and 2 copies of Learn Me Good. OK, the prizes have been stated, now here's how you win. The transfer took longer than I thought it would, so I didn't get to start at the very beginning of February, so we'll just stretch it into March for a bit.
Starting today, Feb 9, and ending a month from today, Mar 9, you can win entries into the prize pool by doing the following things:
Leaving a comment on any blog post -- this will net you 1 entry
Signing the guest book -- this will score you 2 entries
Becoming a FoLMeG -- this too will entitle you to 2 entries
Placing a link to learnmegood.com
anywhere on the net (then directing
me to it for proof) -- you will receive 5 entries
Buying a T-shirt -- you will rack up 10 entries
You can claim credit for each of these actions once per day. So you have an entire month to gain as many entries in the hat as you can.
I really hope that everyone will help me out by spreading the word and participating in this contest. And more than that, I want to THANK everyone in advance, because I really appreciate the popularity that people have shown me and my writing.
Let the games begin!!
