DKdanielkim.com is giving away iTunes and Kindle Gift Cards!!
**I am going to give away some iTunes music and apps, as well as iBooks or Kindle reads but you must read this thoroughly to find out how!**
First of all, I want to say thank you for those of you who have been following my blog, especially during the last few weeks! This giveaway is for you!
In lieu of a regular post today, I want to get a little bit serious and have a DK blog town hall with you. As you know, I have been on a tear recently with new daily blog posts that started on Ash Wednesday (the start of the Lent season) and I must be honest with you, it’s been challenging but incredibly fun and invigorating as well. I just might continue this trend (but a little more toned down) even after the 40 day period is over.
When I started this commitment to blog daily, I wanted to do it for me. I didn’t care who would read my posts or who wouldn’t, I just wanted to get my thoughts out there and dedicate myself to the discipline of writing.
This is half true.
As much as bloggers will say that they do it for themselves, they also hope that others would engage in their thoughts and contribute to the greater discussion that they want to facilitate through their posts.
Ever since I started the daily routine, my blog has been averaging around 110 daily hits with a spike of 2oo+. This is not a very impressive number for those of you who sell ads on your pages but considering I’m not famous, it’s not bad! Of the 110+ hits I receive daily, only about 2 of you decide to actually engage on the topic and leave a comment on my page. What this tells me is that this blog has its share of devoted readers (THANK YOU!) but very, very few choose to take it to another level and contribute. I’m not upset about this. . . I just want more of you!
Consider this my Stimulus (and Thank You) Plan:
Starting today with this VERY post, I will be holding a contest which will end on Monday, April 25 at 11:59 PM PT and 2 random winners will be announced the next day. How do you qualify? Very simple. Just react by leaving a note in the comments section whenever you feel compelled to or feel like it (Mon-Friday) after reading my post for the day.
“WHY RANDOM WINNERS?” Well, if there are 2 clear winners (meaning, 2 people who have left the most comments), the prizes will go to them. The prizes will be random in the event that there is a tie.
“DO MULTIPLE COMMENTS ON THE SAME BLOG COUNT?” While I really appreciate and welcome you helping me moderate the comments, only 1 “point” will be given per day.
“CAN I LEAVE A COMMENT EVERY DAY?” Sure! Although, I understand that sometimes you will have nothing to say or that occasionally a post will seem lame to you (we’re all entitled to our opinions!) so you don’t have to always force a comment out… but some others may do it anyway, and you’ll lose…
“WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?”
This is a blog on MUSIC, LEADERSHIP and CULTURE. That’s why the 2 winners will have their choice of an iTunes gift card (books, music, and apps!) OR a Kindle gift card. You must also know that although I wish I could spring for a much more lucrative amount, the prizes will be worth $15 each and they will be sent electronically since I am all the way here in Mexico City! The phrase “better than nothing!” really is appropriate here.
So what do you say? I think this is a pretty easy way to score some free music and books!
Oh, and by the way, consider today’s post an opportunity for you to “register” into this contest and receive 5 points. Yes, today’s comments are worth 5 points instead of the normal 1. Do it.
