Qumana Vacation Competition

Regular readers will notice that in the last 24 hours I’ve welcomed a new sponsor to ProBlogger – Qumana.

They are currently running a competition that will send one lucky blogger (and a friend) on a week long ‘ultimate Ski or Surf Vacation’.

The competition is pretty easy to enter. In essence all you have to do is download the Qumana beta, use it for your next 20 posts with the ‘powered by Qumana’ link in the footer, then write a creative post ‘about your blogging landscape’ (this is what your entry is judged upon) and then notify the Qumana team of your entry.

Then you could be skiing or surfing for a week – Qumana’s treat!

All the entry details and terms and conditions can be found here.

Disclaimer: as mentioned above and in the sidebar Qumana are a sponsor of ProBlogger.

    Does this mean you put ECTO aside???

  2. John Hood says:

    Pleased to read Qumana supports Mac OS X! :-)

  3. Darren Rowse says:

    yeah – I reviewed it a couple of weeks ago – the Mac version was quite good for their first attempt – I suggested a few improvements which they are working on.

  4. John Hood says:

    Excellent. I’ll search your site for the review. Thanks.

  5. Jan,
    unless he is removing the inserted message about using Qumana, it doesn’t look like Darren does. It is an interesting question though. Look forward to seeing Darren’s answer.


  6. I guess another interesting question (not 100% mentioned by the disclaimer and in a way I don’t care either way just interested to know), is the post done because you think its interesting and/or is it part of the sponsorship (i.e Sponsorship is you put there ad in your sidebar and you have to do a blog/s about the competition/product).

    ToC include: > show off the “powered by Qumana” footer on each post

    Hmmm, I don’t thnik so :)

  8. Sounds pretty cool.

    I’ve been playing with this for a few days now, and finding it a little frustrating.

    The size of ads you can isert is very limited, and doesn’t really lend itself to all formats. Also, the range of content for ads (advertisers) seems VERY limited at this stage. This mean a lot of keywords return ads for unrelated or broad, generic items.

    I’ll give it a chance… but doubtful.
