Site Hop With SiteHoppin'

Written by Erz on Tuesday, January 01, 2008

Max and his team, the creators of OneBuckWiki, FiveDollarWiki and several other fantastic sites, have created yet another great site called SiteHoppin'. These guys are really dedicated and you've got to lend them your support by checking out this new venture.

SiteHoppin' is basically a social networking/bookmarking site which, as the name implies, allows one to hop from site to site based on your interests. By clicking on the "Site Hop" button, you can surf the web to find good blogs, pictures, videos, websites etc. It is based on MediaWiki, which powers the popular Wikipedia, and runs on ideas drawn from well-known sites like StumbleUpon and

This site is still in beta testing so you can be part of the evolving process by joining it now. SiteHoppin' promises a whole host of new features, some of which can allow you to "site hop" among your favorite sites on a daily basis or submit great sites and stories to them.

SiteHoppin' certainly sounds like an exciting project which you may want to be a part of. Check them out today!

Blog Paradise New Year Contest

Written by Erz on Tuesday, January 01, 2008

Blog Paradise Contest Blog is celebrating the new year with a contest! If you've noticed, I have some available advertising slots under the "Sponsors" header in a prominent position in my sidebar. So if you like free advertising, you've come to the right place. There will be 5 prizes as follows:

1st-2nd Prizes - 125x125px ad in my sidebar for 1 month
3rd-5th Prizes - Text link in my blogroll for 1 month

(New: 6th-10th Prizes - Text link in my blogroll for 1 month)

I've made entering very easy. All you need to do is to subscribe to my RSS feeds via email here. Please make sure you have activated the subscription by clicking the activation link in the email sent to you. Then leave a comment in this contest post and you're entered. If you're already on my RSS email subscription list, just leave a comment in this contest post to be entered (You can also subscribe to my feeds via a reader; See update below).

For an additional entry, you can blog about it with a link to my homepage and this contest post from your blog or website. Let me know once you're done by commenting on this contest post with the URL of your blog post. For this bonus entry to be valid, you need to be subscribed to my RSS feeds via email already.

Contest is open worldwide and will end on 31st January 2008, 11:59 PM, PST. Winners will be drawn randomly and announced by the end of that week. Do note that I reserve the right to reject any winning entry if I deem it to be inappropriate for my blog.

If you can't wait till the end of the contest, you can also get your ads at 50% the usual price for a limited time period here.

Have a wonderful start to the new year!

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone for participating in this contest. I've decided to make it easier to enter the contest and easier to win as well! You can now enter by subscribing to my RSS feeds either via a reader or via email (and yes, you can also do both for one entry each). Leave a comment on this post after you've done so. For those subscribing via a reader, you will have to tell me in your comment how I can contact you if you win (e.g. leave your email or website address). If you don't want to leave these information publicly, you can use my contact form to send them to me but do still leave a comment to tell me you've entered. I will track all entries through the comments on this contest post so if you've not commented, you're not in. And I'm also adding 5 more prizes of a text link in my blogroll for 1 month so there will be 10 winners! That's great odds for winning! Each person can win only one prize so there will be 10 different winners! Those who have already entered are eligible as well so do increase your chances of winning by subscribing via the two ways or by blogging about the contest (or by doing all of the above)!
