      Talk about evil. Jesus. Your rss is about to skyrocket. Awesome job shoe! Can’t wait to compete!

    2. Matthew K

      Surely the contest is to get the most unique subscribers though? If we all sign up for the 4 RSS services and the email service then we will each count as 5, isn’t that cheating?

    4. This is Miserable

      Asking people to sign up for your RSS 5 times. Are you serious? What a lame way to try and win a stupid self promotional contest. You and Chow have been sinking to all time lows recently.

    5. LeGo

      i should have created a new blog and blogged about it tonytsai style… interesting method to try and get subscribers 5x’s over.

    6. wethead

      Yes – It actually says “Here is a full list of prizes: (I will be editing this post more tonight but here is the list in online excel format):”

    7. Jeremy

      OK, OK….You convinced me. I usually read you on my Google reader but now I have started a NG and BL feed as well…and added the widget to my igoogle for both.
      All I need now is the confirmation email from your feedburner. Hopefully it is lagging because everyone is signing up to help you win.

      Good Luck!

    8. John

      The formatting of the prize contributors is freakin’ brutal. Why don’t you list what the prizes actually ARE.. and then put a link to the company.

      I don’t see the “Click Here To Enter Todays Contest!” link in the RSS feed. I am not quite sure how this works exactly. So you want us to sign up for the Google reader in order to view your RSS feed? Or are we getting emails every day and we click on those to enter the contest?

    12. big money

      thanks for putting up picture of where the link is, that was quick! Now I am having a little trouble signing up under the 4 different readers. I have entered through “the others feed” but how to I get it through the google one, gator and the other one?

    13. big money

      It appears that I have not received a link on a “google reader”, I believe think this might be the problem.

    14. big money

      I have entered 3 of the 4. Those are some kickass prizes! Is the bowling ball a shoemoney ball or custom logo on it?

    15. Kiltak

      Show: I see John chow is starting to influence you…

      That huge “SUBSCRIBE TO OUR RSS FEED” popup is highly evil and annoying.

      Great job 😉

      Just one thing, please remove it after the end of the contest!

    16. jim

      when i clicked on it thru bloglines is said “Sorry, this contest is for subscribers only.”, is it because i’m using the beta version?

    17. Farmer

      It worked in newsgator and bloglines but there isn’t any link for the contest in google reader or in the email.

    18. Barry

      Awesome contest Shoe – lets kick some Chow! – not seeing anything in todays email or newsgator yet just this post announcing the contest….

    19. PPCRiches

      What a great idea – I’ll be blogging about
      this awesome “Give away” to our readers
      and probably having my own contest for my
      blog soon =) haha great idea I love it.



      You might need to check it against the list above. I’m only offering $20 from each site, although I am planning on running another contest on my sites, too.

    21. Brian Mark

      Wow… if you don’t win, he must have come up with something really amazing. Anyone who says you’re not a marketer just needs to look here to know they’re wrong. :)

    22. strong941

      This is awesome stuff — i’m green and ready to learn. any thoughts for someone very new to all of this??? feedback welcome.

      You must be kiding, it’s PR2, he should have paid you for posting his link here 😀

    24. Harrisburg Web Design

      Clearly some folks overstated the value of their services. Still, it’s a great collection of prizes, and even if it’s only a PR2, I’d take the link / traffic from him. Every little bit helps.

    25. Gecko Tales

      This reminds me of those contest we had in elem school where we bought paper rings to see which class could make the longest chain. The class that won got a pizza party. That was a great way to blow some nickels.

    26. Tracy Robinson

      That is an awesome way to boost your stats and stickiness, I usually just type in every day but now it is worth it to actually open up my bloglines account.

      Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your
      post seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
      I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
      The style and design look great though! Hope you get
      the problem resolved soon. Many thanks
