An Awesome Week for JoeTech!

Posted in Just Cool by Joe Colburn on the September 29th, 2008

First of all, this last week was hectic. Not only did I try to keep up and crank out some good posts, but I also had a lot of work to do at the office. This is always the case after coming back from a trip.

So what made the week so awesome?

First, John Chow and I both posted about the contest to win our money that we got from BlogWorld. This weekend, John picked a random winner from over 120 entries. The cash goes to Adam Mlynarcik of, who boosted his chances by making a post about the contest. Thanks for participating, Adam, and congrats!

I also had my own stroke of luck when I won one of the daily t-shirt prizes in the middle of last week. I had been hoping to score a ShoeMoney shirt at BlogWorld, but didn’t, so I was pretty pleased to have won one. On top of that, there’s a monthly grand prize that I am now entered into with about 1/30 odds of winning, as I understand it. If I win, you can bet you’ll see a post about it, detailing the prize when it comes.

Finally, today I checked in on to see who won the Super Affiliate Caption Contest. I threw in my caption because I thought it was a bit witty, but there were a lot of good ones, so I wasn’t holding my breath. I also just wanted the Package (includes “a Black T-Shirt, Bumper Stickers, Pens, Buttons and maybe something else extra”), which was part of all three top prizes, so I didn’t care that much which I won. As it turns out, I won 3rd place! Go check out the contest and all the funny captions.

I love contests, so this week has been tons of fun for me. I’m also thinking up more contests I can have, too, so stay tuned.

    Joe thanks for your money, I really appreciate it and want everyone to know I will be giving the majority of it away on my blog later in the month so I urge everyone to keep an eye out for my contest.

    Adam: You should thank Market Leverage by clicking on the link above to sign up with them. It was their money. =)

    Zac: Thanks. I got my Shoe “MF” Money shirt, so as soon as the ZacJohnson goodies come in the mail, I’ll put together a post showing it all off.

    Patel: I’ll take a look. Thanks!

    Mike: How could I forget someone who featured my blog as part of your blog’s design (even if only temporary) and reviewed me, too. How’s it been? I was checking out your arcade site a while ago. Looking good!
