Use These Banners To Win $106.34

by derek on February 6, 2008 · 13 comments

When I announced my latest contest where the blog that refers the most traffic in February will win $106.34, I had a few people ask if I had any banner ads that they could use to advertise my site.
At the time I did not have anything created – but that has now changed.
It started with a member of the community offering to make a banner to use on his site. Dave Pitlyuk quickly created a banner that he has been using on his blog.
Seeing the banner from Dave provided me with a few ideas and last night I sat down with Photoshop and tried my best to fumble my way around to create a few different banners. After chatting with a few people about the banners, I have decided to share them with all of you in case someone would like to use one.
Without further ado, I present you three banners – all 125×125 in size – for you to use as you see fit to try and win my contest.

Please let me know what you think of these banners and feel free to suggest any enhancements that you would like to see.

I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you.

To stray a little off topic, it that your caricature, and if so do you wear earrings?

Yes, I have earrings – two of the circular barbell style and a diamond. Here is what the barbells look like.

Nice banner and contest but I am afraid I can’t join the contest because my blog is new and has a low traffic, so I think it is impossible for me to win.
