New Contest: Blog Carnival I
Want to join me on a carnival?
A blog carnival, that is!
What’s that? How does it work? Well, since we have so many great artists with blogs, I thought it would be fun for everyone to participate in an organized “carnival” – meaning, I give you a general topic to blog about, and a deadline to do so. At the end of the deadline, as the host I’ll put up a master post of links to everyone’s blog posts, and all us peeps can go and have a gander, comment, rate, share, etc. In addition, every participant will share the master list on their own blogs, thus spreading the love. Got it?
This is a great opportunity for exposure that shouldn’t be missed!
The carnival starts tomorrow (May 11) and runs until May 24. Everyone who participates will get a cool GCU Community All-Star, and be entered into a drawing to win a $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE TO AMAZON.COM!
The topic is: SUMMERTIME, AND THE LIVING IS EASY
To participate, write a blog post about summer – it could be anything summer related, from childhood or present family memories, to a recipe for a summery lemon cake, to a summer themed painting. Use your imagination! Included in your post must be links to 3 cards at GCU – yours or another artist’s (using the Sell This Card tool earns you commission on new customer sales) that have a summer theme (like a pool party invitation, a beach photograph, a picture of a watermelon slice, a summer holiday like Fourth of July – again, use your imagination).
Leave a comment on this blog with the URL of your blog post (or email me directly). On May 24, I’ll post the carnival master list. Everyone is encouraged to visit the participating blogs, leave comments, and generally have a good time.
Oh, I’m not forgetting about the Squidoo lensmasters lurking around here… a new Squidoo lens on a summer topic with minimum 3 links to GCU cards (you can include up to 9) will also be considered eligible for the prize.
Now go out and celebrate summer in the best way – and maybe you’ll be the hottest winner in town!
