ShoeMoney and T-Shirts Contest Winners

by derek on July 25, 2007 · 23 comments

Once I stopped hitting refresh every 3 seconds to see how many more times my post about the exploding CD had been dugg, I began to think of what I should do next.
I’d read many posts about how you should try and leverage the increase in traffic but none of the ideas really struck me as something I wanted to do. So I decided to hold a contest.

ShoeMoney and FlippingRich T-Shirt Contest

The contest was something that I thought would be a way to give a little something back to those that have visited the site and become a part of the community. Each of the three lucky winners will receive two t-shirts (mens or womens ShoeMoney t-shirt and a t-shirt) and a crazy little stress squeeze toy.
Drumroll Please…We have a winner (3 actually)
In the week that this contest was running, I received a total of 34 entries which included 3 bonus entries for blogging about the contest in addition to the comment.
After throwing all of the names into a baseball hat, I selected three winners with the assistance of my two kids. The three lucky winners are:

Congratulations Rose, Enkay and Joe!
Each of the winners have been contacted via email in order to get their shipping address but if any of them do not respond by next Wednesday, I will select a new winner from the remaining contestants.
I’d like to thank everyone for participating in the contest and hope everyone had a good time. In addition, I’d like to give a special thanks to those that took a few minutes to post about the contest on their own site as well:

There are still more prizes to be given away so you might want to subscribe to my RSS feed to avoid missing the next contest!
