Contest! Help me, help you...and WIN!

OK, so this is kind of a round about thing but here's the deal. In my last blog post I gave info about a sale on an iPhone app. Now, I do legitimately think this is a cool book and a cool app. But, beyond that, I am part of a little contest. You see, there are ~50 versions of that link and we're tracking to see who can get the most hits. The winner gets a little prize.

Now, I realize that particular iPhone app may not appeal to all of my blog readers. But hopefully those who are intrigued by it will click the link and go learn more.

Now for the "hook" for the rest of you. I would love to have all my followers...and your friends...and your friends' friends...click the link and help me win.

That's a rather self-centered goal though.

So...if I happen to win this particular contest...then I will run a contest of some type within the next couple of weeks. The exact nature of my contest is yet to be determined as is the prize...but I will strive to have a prize value of at least $20 and to make the prize available internationally.

So...help me win (I've got a ways to go to catch the leader) and I'll host my first contest here on this blog.

As an added incentive....if/when I do run my contest, I will give 5 bonus entries to anybody who posts this link http://bit.ly/cGdrau somewhere and then comments on this post showing me where it was posted. I'll even increment it...so if you post it in 2-3 different spots, you'll get 10-15 extra entries.

So Click Here to get started...then tell your friends. And in the coming weeks, I'll host a contest to help reward your efforts.

Dude, I saw that you became a follower of my blog so I stopped by your to check yours out.

You have an xbox live gamercard widget, your avatar photo looks like yoshimitsu from ... what was that game?

Soul Calibur?

You're 35?

You're a dad?

A reader, and a writer, and you've got a corporate job just to pay the bills?

We could be brothers.

Anyway rest assured you've got a new friend and follower. I honestly didn't have time to read your post yet but I WILL be back.

I noticed you were currently reading PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES. You should try ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE KILLER by the same author I believe.

Or try Christopher Moore's BLOODSUCKING FIENDS, YOU SUCK, & BITE ME. They will give you belly laughs.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Don't be a stranger. Roland

@ Roland - Thanks for stopping by and for the suggestions. I actually won (and am waiting for) a copy of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Killer. I've got a few of Christopher Moore's books on my "to read" list, but have no idea when I'll get to them.

@ Talli - gladly. thanks for your visit as well.
