CONTEST! Ultimate link love recovery

Ok so the moment we have all been waiting for is here. It is time for the ultimate link love recovery contest.


Simple. I moved my site from CECWorship recently and noticed that because it was on it came with a share of problems trying to move RSS over. Most of my readers were not using the feedburner feed and I could not transfer them over so I went from 125 readers to 10. Not much community like that. Then on top of all that my technorati rating went down to 0 (yes I am a stat ho and proud of it). So I want to get the community back to where it was quick because I have some great stuff I will be writing about soon.


This will be an # entry based contest all plugged into so that means You get your name in hat once or twice depending on what you do. This is a bloggers contest.

There are 3 tiers if you will.

  • 1 entry if: you change your link on your blogroll, already have changed it, or add my to your blogroll (of course I will add you to mine if it isn’t already.
  • 2 entries if:Β  you do the above plus subscribe to my new feed
  • Big daddy!: If you do all the above and also do a small (or long) post announcing my sites move and that you like me (ha ha) you automatically get put into a different contest for grand prize only.

So once you have done any of these or already have before contest started post in the comments on this post what tier: 1, 2, big daddy you have accomplished and a link to your site. MAKE SURE YOUR LINK IS ATTACHED TO AN EMAIL SO I CAN CONTACT YOU FOR YOUR ADDRESS.

There it is folks…spread the word…yeah there are amazing prizes and fun to be had, but most of all I get to build up the community I had plus get ot meet some new people or have some new reads enriching my life.
Just to let you know also to encourage RSS subscribing. If you thought my old blog was cool it’s about to get way awesomer (yes that is a word today).

If I have missed something or something makes no sense to you and is like in Klingon let me know.

note: if you already get integrity materials (fred mckinnon) feel free to do all the above anyway you just are not in the running for the prizes.

    hey joel, I’m not in your blogroll (and you don’t have to add me, since I don’t want to just be another name in the very long list!) but I read your blog πŸ™‚ It might be cool for you to know that I’m from Singapore, a country so tiny you probably don’t quite know where it is on the map, haha.

    I’ve done both 1 & 2!

    GREAT idea. Totally forgot to make the switch with you when you moved (I’m moving in the next week or so too). No need to put me in the contest. I got your link updated and will do a quick post next week once I wrap up my beatitudes series (ends tomorrow). Love the new site!
