    (Darren, do not be a bad guy and give me a WPtheme!”)

  2. Joe says:

    Woot! I love premium themes! I hope that I’ve made enough entries to score one!

  3. Bitten says:

    You shouldn’t count the odds by the comments on that competition post but by the comments on those every other posts. They’re the “real” entries and there can be over 285 of them.

    But, I’ll still try. With this one entry.

  4. You jinxed it man… The moment you posted this people are going to come flocking in to register and then the odds are going to go through the roof…. i guess that’s advertisement for ya

  5. MG says:

    Done already, Hope i win.

  6. Mike says:

    Thanks for again for running this little contest Darren. I’m always looking for a way to find good themes cheap.

  7. I’d really love to win this theme. Good luck to everyone else!

  8. Looking forward to see the result. Good luck everybody.

  9. Martin Jones says:

    Perfect timing as I have brand new site I’d like to launch within the next few weeks and a premium theme would be Suhweet!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  10. I just want to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. I wish you all good luck in winning the them. A great theme can sometimes be the thing that sets a blog apart from the rest of the pack and turn a good blog into a successful blog.

  11. says:

    Hi Darren I hope i will get this theme as a christmas present let’s wait n see –

  12. Mark says:

    Darren – just wanted to say Happy Holidays! Thanks for giving away the theme (no matter who wins!).

  13. I hope this comment counted as another entry too:)

    Great blog contest!

  14. Ravi says:

    Well, here’s to hoping….

    I’ve already bought and used Brian’s original Revolution theme on one of my sites, looking forward to getting a copy of one of the News versions soon, hopefully via this competition!

  15. I would love to win this competition.

    And a merry Christmas to you all.

  16. Done Already :) Hope I win! :)

  17. Ian N says:

    I’ve been comment whoring like no ones business this week! Chris Vincent hit the nail on the head though, because people will flock from far and wide to steal my (yes MY) free premium wordpress theme!

  18. Shane says:

    Thanks for the reminder.

  19. Laura says:

    I really need the WP book, since I need to fix my blog to make it work on most browsers. Please pick me.

  20. Happy Holidays Darren, and thank you for ALL your generous giving, of prizes, of publicity, of link love… this is my favorite blogging blog, PERIOD, and beyond the incredibly useful info you provide, it’s because you’re just SO DARN NICE. :D

  21. Ben Cook says:

    The question I had to ask myself was whether or not I’d whore my comments out for a premium WP theme… the answer was yes.

  22. Matthew says:

    Come on lucky 7

  23. I am in! THanks Darren.

  24. That theme is pretty sweet. I would love to give it a test drive.

  25. BW says:

    Would be nice for Christmas :o)

  26. Darshana says:


    This will be a cool gift for Christmas for the lucky winner. I hope its me because that would be just the thing for my first blog to take off in the New Year.

    Good Luck Everyone!

  27. Derek says:

    What a very cool idea for a contest. Very nice way to generate some pageviews in the holiday off season.

  28. Does this comment count as another entry? :P

  29. zr5 says:

    I hope I win this so I can change my current theme. I don’t like how my current theme handles the front page. :)

  30. Ganha says:

    the theme is SEO ready?

  31. Sumesh says:

    The odds certainly don’t look very well – over 300 comments on that post seems quite steep a mountain to climb. But then again, who knows?

  32. Patrick says:

    Drool, wordpress theme for my blog is surreal.

  33. They are nice themes. Really useful for the future of blogging.

  34. Thank you for making sure to remind me. I meant to comment earlier and got caught up in the hustle and bustle.

  35. Ilias says:

    Done Already :) Hope I win! :) Thanx for reminding us

  36. Suzie Cheel says:

    Thanks for the reminder, started the week well with the initial comment plus one and then somehow life got in the way and my reader is full to overflowing with unread posts.

  37. Artur Kim says:

    I left a comment on that post and a few more on other posts. Only a few more hours left! Good luck to everyone participating! (:

  38. wild flux says:

    Woohoo! I left my comments. I’ve also bookmarked adii’s site!

  39. coolthought says:

    errr… thanks for the reminder. Honestly, not that interested in that wordpress theme. This doesn’t means that the theme isn’t well build or good looking. In fact, it looks professional and well designed. Should be good for a certain blogs. However, it didn’t have the features that I wanted for my blog. Don’t want to spend too much customising it later. So, I will pass and let those who wants and need it, get it.

    Just wondering why there isn’t any blog writing contest this year as there is one last year at about the same time of the year. I really look forward to one.

  40. Dan Cole says:

    Looks like a lot of people tweak free templates, so this should be very nice for one of us.

  41. yeah I was curious about that too. It does look like a great theme though.

  42. Adam says:

    Crossing my fingers – i need a new blog theme

  43. Justin Dupre says:

    I could really use this. I think my content at is great, but my layout needs work.

    Thanks for the opportunity!


  44. Hope that people all around the globe will be participated in this competition.

    Best of luck to everyone.

  45. Thriveal says:


    Count this as my second post – I NEED TO WIN!!

    Thanks, Jason M. Blumer

  46. Great idea, great execution. FREE will always attract participants to the party. Good job, Darren.

  47. Jake Bouma says:

    Can I give the theme away if I win it?

  48. Keral Patel says:

    WOW I think I am just in. I had always wanted a premium theme for my blog :) Hoping maybe I am lucky enough.

  49. Calvin says:

    Thanks Darren! waiting for result :-)

  50. Daniel says:

    Just like to say this is a really good contest idea. Wish I would have known about it before.
