It’s another new round of Gmail invites. This time I have a total of 5 accounts to give out. The contest ends Thursday night at
Midnight 10pm MST (I’m excited to give these away and don’t want to wait until Friday) with prizes to be awarded on Friday Thursday night or Friday morning.
There are a few relatively easy things you have to do in order to win a Gmail invite from me. You don’t have to do them all, but the more of them you do, the more points you get, and the people with the most points get invites.
#1 – Post a comment explaining that you would like a free Gmail account and why you think I should give it to you. (Worth between 1-25 points at my discretion)
#2 – Include your first and last name in the comment. I’m no longer going to make up first and last names for people I am sending the accounts to. Also it’s manditory to include your current email address. If you want you can include the word “at” for “@” or the word nospam, which (don’t worry) I am smart enough to figure out and send the invite to the right address.
(Worth 200 points)
#3 – Be a Blogger account holder at the time you post your comment. (Worth 15 points)
#4 – Have a blog. (Worth 5 points)
#5 – Post a link on your blog to my blog. Permanent sidebar links are worth more. You may get double points on this if you post a link in addition to having a permanent link.
(Single posts are worth 20, Permanent links 50, up to a total of 70 points!)
#6 – Compose a limerick about me, my site, things I’m interested in, or Gmail. (10 – 50 points)
The person with the most points who posts before
12:00pm10:00pm MST(as recorded in the comments) will get the first invite, and the person with the second highest score will get the next one and so on until I am out of account invites.
Update June 17, 2004: The contest is now closed. Please try again next time. I haven’t added up the scores but I will do that shortly and have the results in my next post.
