How to Enter:
It’s “Ode to ProBlogger” time! All you have to do to have a qualifying entry to win one of the above 5 prizes is to leave a comment below with a poem about ProBlogger. It doesn’t have to be a “love poem” or written in any particular style (though yes, rhyming would be nice). You don’t have to link to anything or write anything on your own blog – you simply have to write a poem about ProBlogger the website or Darren, the man behind the site, right there in the comments section (of course if you really want to share your Ode with your readers you can post it on your blog – but we’d also ask you to share it here in comments so we’ve got them all in the one place).
Please include the word problogger or Darren in your Ode to help us catch all of these comments in Akismet.
There will be no judging, so please feel free to write BAD poetry!
The random number generator will choose 5 winners who will be notified by email.
Here comes the rub: If you have already won something, we’re sorry but you’re not eligible. If you win one of the iPods, you will then not be eligible to win anything else. Entering is not a guarantee of winning anything, and this whole thing is just for fun so if you think you’re a bad poet, write something anyway that somewhat resembles poetry. We seriously don’t care if it’s good or not!
Check out the full prize list (now updated to show which prizes have already been awarded or are in progress!) and if you’re not subscribed to the RSS feed by now, you’ve likely missed your chances to win a whole bunch of cool stuff already!
PS: If you’re looking for a little ‘inspiration’ – here’s an Ode that ProPoet Robert Bruce did for ProBlogger a while back:
Sorry, had to remove the video because it was acting all wonky… if you like, you can view it here.
This giveaway is closed, and all winners have been selected and notified. Thanks for all the really fantastic stuff (yes, even the “bad” stuff) – You all amazed both Darren and myself with your creativity!
