Win a WordPress Blog Theme for Your Blog

update – thanks for everyone’s entries but this competition is now over.

Premium-NewsI received a lot of positive feedback from last week’s giveaway of the WordPress for Dummies book.

One of the things that happened as a result of the giveaway is that I had a number of other people offer to give similar prizes. While I don’t want to let this blog get run over my prizes and competitions – I do like the idea of rewarding active participants of the site – so have decided to run another one this week.

This week the prize has been donated by Adii. Addii is a great blog designer and he’s generously providing five of his Premium News Themes for the winners of this week’s giveaway.

How to Win it

Because this week’s prize isn’t something that everyone needs (it’s a WordPress theme) we’ll run the giveaway slightly differently this time. You need to do two things:

1. Comment on this thread to register your interest. These comments can be anything from ‘count me in’ to ‘show me the WP Theme’. This is your first entry.

2. Comment on any other post on the blog over the next five days. Every comment you leave on any post is another entry into the competition. Of course these comments need to be genuine and on topic comments.

I will randomly choose 1 comment per day over the next five days to win a theme. The five winners will be announced on Saturday (my time).

My hope with this is that you’ll still have opportunity to enter as many times as you like – but that we’ll get winners who actually want the prize.

About the Prize

Premium News is a one-of-a-kind, feature-rich, magazine style theme for WordPress, which is aimed at ambitious bloggers looking for a professional front-end to showcase their content. The theme is highly customizable and offers the user some advanced customization options through the WordPress admin panel – the look of the theme can thus be changed, without even touching the code. The theme usually sells for $70.


Let the Commenting Begin – and Good Luck!
