End Of January Contest Winners

I've read some of the greatest comments/articles that I have ever read in my life over the last 24 hours. In case you missed it, I wanted to hold a little contest yesterday and see if anyone has learned anything from this blog and what have the applied it to. Since the blog had a high traffic day yesterday and increased 20 more subscribers throughout the night I can only assume that some people were not at that level where they will comment the blog. Totally understandeable but we encourage you to participate in the conversationsCool

With that said, I got to say that I am still blown away by the content posted after the contest. Everyone that took the post serious and responded seriously had a wonderful and deeply inspiring answer in itself. Now I am seeing that this contest is killing me. I would gladly hand out cash to everyone that posted because everyone of those answers was overly deserving. To try and compensate for that and the fact I like to overachieve (or try to), I am NOT going to dish out $300.

I am going to dish out $600Cool

I will be recording a video today after I make my rounds to go into detail about the answers I chosen. For now I would like to announce 3 winners of $100 and 6 winners of $50. So many great answers I had to do something!

Winners of the contest:

  • Derek–chillyd – $50
  • GoKarter  – $50
  • The Dog – $50
  • Keith – $50
  • Dukey  – $100
  • Kris – $50
  • Della – $100
  • Cyrus – $50
  • solvetheproblem -$100

Like I said, it was super hard to choose and I have read every comment 3-4 times throughout the night and then again this morning. I want to thank everyone who participated in the contest but I truly want to thank everyone for reading. This blog is NOT an income source for me and dont know if it ever will be. I do this for fun, interaction and quite frankly because I can. If nobody was reading it there would be no incentive to do it. So I will be following up later by video and covering some points of each comment.

For now I would ask that you email me via the contact form. Just put the name you used on the blog here in the comments that you won with. Put your name in the subject line and the amount of the prize. In the message be sure to give me your Paypal address and I will send out the prizes as they come in today.

OMG !!! Ruck

I can’t Thank-You enough, you don’t know how much this means to me .

It’s all the little thing that you do for us that adds up and go’s a long way.

Your a world class guy Ruck, and if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be where I’m at today or even where I would like to be in the future.

Very Much Appreciated Ruck

Nearly spilled my coffee all over my keyboard when I saw the results.

Here you go again Ruck giving more than you promised.

It’s a great surprise to see that I’m one of the winners. Thanks so much and congratulations to everyone that won and all those that left comments.

Very disappointed you judged by length.

February 1, 2008

I didnt judge by length so dont freak out. Seriously a sore loser here? Do you cry if you dont get the last cookie?

February 1, 2008

Congratulations everyone – truly good comments

Maybe next time for me :)

Thanks a bunch Ruck, you’re outstanding.

I actually got a ton out of reading the other entries in the contest. Thank you everyone who commented yesterday. It actually meant a lot to me and has motivated me all day regardless of the outcome. I’m really impressed with the caliber of people who are reading this blog every day. I wish all of my friends were like that.

February 1, 2008

Wow. Ruck. Thanks man. I really didn’t expect to win. This was a really generous and thoughtful thing you came up with.

I appreciate all the knowledge and time you have spent getting me started. Anything I can do to help you in the future I will.


February 1, 2008

Generous and thoughtful yes but I really wanted to hear what everyone had to say and what they were doing. Unfortunately I could not pick 30 winners so hopefully the positive comments negate the bad.

February 1, 2008

Not a sore loser… time to get to work.

February 2, 2008

Thanks Ruck! I enjoyed all the comments as well. Keep up the great work on this blog!

February 2, 2008

Once again Ruck you continue to amaze me with your generosity, first with information and now with cold hard cash!

You truly are alone at the top, a step above all the rest. It’s no wonder I deleted all those other blogs from my Favs and only read yours!
