Thank you for the click-through.
Let’s not waste a minute. What’s in it for YOU?
How about a $10 Starbucks gift card?
If you’re really motivated, you could win an iPod Nano
Here’s how: The coffee (or smoothie) will go to the twentieth (20th) account holder to register on this blog.
Now, this award is not going to the 19th or 21st person to register. Precision is possible in cyberspace. Yes, WordPress knows, and so do I.
Be sure to enter your correct email so I can send you the prize.
The biggie: If you lust after an iPod Nano, or even if you are devoted to Android, go post a comment. You don’t need to be registered. You just need to be conscious.
Let us have a conversation here. Isn’t that what blogging is all about?
It’s not a one-way communication (like newsprint, alas), it is a discussion. We learn as much as we pontificate.
I learn from you, perhaps also teach a few points now and then. (Remember, I am both a reporter and a professor!)
Let us learn from each other.
FROM NOW (“In the (*)now”) until 11:59 PDT on Friday, May 10, 2013, WordPress will be counting the number of comments you make to the posts on this blog.
Again, you don’t have to be registered to comment.
But you do have to put your glasses on so you can read the kaptcha.
1. Monosyllabic comments don’t count. “OMG” and “WTF” are rubbish, unless contained within something more meaningful.
2. One sentence is marginal. The judge’s decision is final.
3. Seminal, thoughtful comments will get bonus points. Don’t ask, don’t tell. It is a secret algorithm.
4. An aphorism to live by: “It is, sometimes, better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission.”
Go do it. Think. Write. Bloviate.
I can take it. If I couldn’t, then how dare I give it?
