It dawned on me yesterday that I’m about a month and half or so away from my 1000th post here, and probably about three days or so away from my 1 millionth visitor since I started using this stats package, so the last couple of years.
Even though it isn’t really, it seems kind of important; all those zeros, you know? And I want to do *something* to recognize these milestones. Plus I have a lot of fun crap sitting around the house that I can give away. So, I am announcing two contests for readers of Okazu.
The 1 Million Visitor Art Contest:
It’s sort of traditional on Japanese blogs to get “Thank for XXX number of hits” pictures, but I never even check my hits, since most people hit more than one page at a visit. So we’re going with “Thanks for 1 Million Visitors” here.
There’s no rule other than this – a pretty Yuri-themed picture with “Thanks for 1 Million Visitors” on it. The top 7 get posted here – one a day for a week – and prizes. Fair enough? I don’t care if it’s fan art or original, but I’ll probably be biased for original. :-) And nothing explicit. We’re going for “Yay, Yuri!” not “Hawt lesbo sexxors.” ;-)
Send entries to anilesbocon01 at hotmail dot com with the subject line “1 million.”
Include the following:
Contact info so I can get an address to mail you stuff if you win.
I’ll accept entries until… let’s say March 31.
1000th Post Contest:
This one is even easier. Just vote for your favorite post here. That’s all you have to do to enter. I’ll draw names at random from all the entries for prizes. Winners get announced on my 1000th post. :-)
Send entries to anilesbocon01 at hotmail dot com with the subject line “Favorite Post.” I’ll accept entries until Post #990. I don’t know when that is yet, so don’t ask – I’ll announce it. (This is post #954, if that helps.)
Include the following:
Contact info so I can get an address to send you stuff if you are a winner
The URL of your favorite post here on Okazu
The Title of that Post
Why you like it best
If we get any kind of majority, I’ll name that the best post evar. LOL Otherwise, you all just be entered for prizes.
If you have questions, use the comments field, but assume the simple and obvious. I’m not trying to make it hard – I have a loads of small silly fun stuff to give away. I look forward to your entries!
