ProBlogger Book Competition Winners

Posted By Darren Rowse 14th of July 2008 ProBlogger Site News 38

I’m so confused!

The 193 entries into my ProBlogger Book competition were all so great that I’ve spent the last hour agonizing over who to choose.

I didn’t know whether to choose winners based upon quality of the comment, the blog of the commenter and how much help it needed (and how useful the book would be to them) or any of 10 or so other factors that I could have chosen a winner on.

As a result I’ve chosen three winners and will send each a copy of the book. I only wish I had 193 copies sitting on my desk to send.

Thanks to everyone for entering – but here’s the winners:

I’ll be in touch with you each shortly via email to get your postage details.

Like I say – I could have chosen 100 or so others to win – but had to draw the line somewhere.

To the rest of you – thanks for entering and I do hope you manage to pick up a copy of the book. Amazon currently has it on special for $16.47 and I’m told that it should be hitting stores outside of the US any day now (if it’s not already arrived). Many stores have them on order and others are taking customer orders for it so call up your local store and order one today.

    Thanks for the email regarding our entries. That was a class act.

  11. Thanks Darren for a wonderful book promo idea and kudos to the other 190 people for posting their sites. I’m slowly going through that list!

    And to Chris of Geek-Speak, I like how your site is organized and quickly found some older posts that cater to me more than your co-winners. Subscribed!

    And thanks for the email, Darren. Unfortunately I can’t afford to buy it now, even with the discounted price at Amazon, but I’ve added it to my wishlist ;)

  21. Awesome works Guys. And good to see all the support

  22. Thanks everyone and Darren! I think I fall in the category of needing it the most. LOL.

    When I started my blog 9 months ago, I just intended it to be a fitness log. Darn! Wish I had found Darren sooner AND known that I would eventually want to create a revenue stream and expanded content.

    Oh well – expect alot of changes comes soon. Can’t wait to get the book and thank you so much Darren for this awesome website Problogger!

  29. Congrats to all the winners. For losers, don’t worry. you will win next time and proud to be part of that competition.

  30. Darn, I didn’t win again… ah well

    Congrats to the winners

  31. I just purchased this book and started to read it on my flight to Denver last week. So far it is excellent. I was coming up with so many ideas. I wish I had pen and paper on the flight to make little notes. I may have to start again!

  32. JUST FYI

    I live in Athens, Greece and I was able to purchase book by ordering at one of the international bookstores in the center.

  36. Congrats to the winners! By the way, what DID you base the final decisions on? Just curious! I need to buy my book soon. It sounds great. And thanks for the wonderful blog you have here (ProBlogger).

  37. Shoot…I missed the contest!

    Oh well, I didn’t need the book anyway because I already bought it about 3 months ago knowing nothing about blogging.

    Today I’m working on my 3rd blog and kicking butt thanks to the guidance and knowledge the book gave me.

  38. Hey Darren

    Just to let you know, I bought the book in Singapore, so it’s arrived in the tech bookstores in this part of Asia at least.
