A Joint Blogger Weekly Contest & Review

Written by Erz on Saturday, November 17, 2007

Treizie (Jaesten) and Phos Tan are having a joint contest with a weekly prize of $20 via Paypal and 2 Technorati authorities. That's a great idea for new bloggers who are not making loads of cash yet but who still want to increase their viewership.

To enter, you must subscribe to their RSS by reader and email, fave them in Technorati and make a constructive review of their blogs and contest with 2 links each to the homepages of Blank Mind of Treizie and Phos Tan as well as to Treizie's contest page and Phos' contest page. Wow, lots of links! Do check out their contest posts for the full details and rules.

The Blank Mind of Treizie blog is in 3 column style which allows her to maximize the space for ads. This is a double-edged sword as many bloggers have mentioned before. I guess finding a balance between monetizing your blog and having an overkill of ads is the way to go. Nonetheless. Treizie blogs about a myriad of topics so her blog could be suitable for a range of people. I also like the tagline "Thoughts of a blank mind" as it seems conflicting and thus causes you to ponder over it. So do go and have a look!

Phos Tan's blog is where he shares his fun and cool ideas on several topics, anything from technology to finance to games. This is again a grey area as the debate between putting out a general content to attract many people versus putting out in-depth and specialized content which builds depth and adds to 'stickiness' rages on. So there is no right or wrong but a choice by the blog author. I do like the look of his blog, especially since it originated from Jackbook who has got some cool templates. Like Treizie, he uses a 3 column template to maximize space and has lots of ads. I also like his idea of a "viral blog review" where he trades links for writing a free review.

So get entered in their contests today.

P.S. Treizie's son is really cute!
