Contact Form Removed From Bottom Of Pages

Written by Erz on Wednesday, December 19, 2007

Hi everyone, just to let all of you know, I've removed the "Contact Me" contact form from the bottom of every page. While my initial intention was to make it easily accessible for readers, I realized through the Christmas Paradise Contest that a lot of you were sending me your comments not via the required comments form but via my contact form, even after I added much clarification and links. You have my apologies for this unintended consequence as I agree that having the contact form so close to a post does result in a little confusion, especially since my comments form is via the link called "Something to say?" and is thus not so obvious.

Anyway, you can now access the contact form via the "Contact" link on the top right hand of every page. I hope this reduces the confusion. If you haven't submitted your entries to the Christmas Paradise Contest via the comments form at the contest post, do post a comment there before the contest ends (in less than 3 days time!) as I can only track entries from there.

Good luck and keep those entries coming in!

Hi folks, if you haven't entered my Christmas Paradise Contest yet or have only one or a few entries, you'd want to check out the contest post for all the ways to increase your chances of winning not one, but two prizes for Christmas! And just commenting on the comment form gets you one entry - simple!

Even if you've already entered, you can add on extra entries anytime before the contest ends. If you're subscribing to my RSS feeds via email (to be eligible for the mystery bonus prize), do remember that you must validate the subscription by clicking the link sent to your email address for your entry to be valid.

Win A Revolution Theme

Written by Erz on Wednesday, December 19, 2007

Want to win a Wordpress Revolution Theme? Well, Daniel at Daily Blog Tips and his sponsor, Brian Gardner, are giving out 3 of them to some lucky bloggers who share their blogging goals for 2008. Check out their contest post for full details.

Contest ends 23rd December 2007.

Here blogging goals for 2008:
1) Increase my RSS subscribers to at least 100 (this blog is not even 3 months old so I would be pleased with that).
2) Bring in monthly revenues enough to support a domain of my own and hosting fees on a paid web host for the year.
3) Have at least 3 new posts in a week (happy to say that I'm closing on 130 posts in less than 3 months).
4) Boost my PageRank to around 2 (currently unranked).
5) Bring a little bit of paradise to some nice people around the world by helping them find and win some great prizes (now this is definitely realistic and measurable by the good feedback and thanks from those who do win contests they see on my blog...and even if all the above goals are not achieved, I'd want this one to be!)
