Anybody Want $10???


I need your help. Now. Well, before midnight on Sunday. (Yes, that's a correction - I had originally said Saturday but found out that I was mistaken...anyway, gives you more time!) We had a video contest at the A-Z Challenge blog, to make an advertising video, and we need voters. There are only 12 videos, and they're all under 2 minutes. Most of them a lot shorter than that. They're also tremendously creative, and all quite different. Would you pretty please with sugar on top (or a martini, if you prefer) watch them and vote for your favorite?

I'm not just asking for help, I'm also totally bribing you. (I've found it to be a great parenting tool, too).  If you come back and comment that you've voted, I'll enter you in a drawing for a gift card to a place of your choosing. $10 to spend however you want! That's a good return on your investment of time. I voted this morning and it took me only 20 minutes to watch them and vote. So it's like I'm paying you $30 hour. That's not chump change!

You don't have to be a challenge participant to vote, we just want you to tell us which ad for the challenge was the best. But hell, if you haven't signed up yet, you might still consider doing so. We have over 1,000 participants, and no, you don't have to visit everyone, just a *suggested* five a day.  I tell ya', it's THE blog-hop of the year and I just don't want you to miss out on the fun.

Thanks so much for voting!  I'll pick a winner after voting closes.  You can only vote once, we've got a gadget to make sure of that.  But hey, tell ya' what.  If you join the challenge (or already have) just tell me in a comment on this post, I'll enter you in the drawing for that, too.  It would double your chances...

I'll have a look at the videos. Not now, though...a rerun of NCIS is on. But, I have signed up for the challenge. I like doubling. Well, unless it comes to my waist size. But, doubling is nice. Unless that means another dude is in the shower with me.
Well, you know what I mean.

Wow nice opportunity! I watched the videos and I like them. I voted! Wish I had one of those stickers you get at elections ^_^ Good luck to all!

Hey Tina,
Now then, if you had mentioned oh, ten pounds British Sterling, we might be onto something here. Anyway, this shy, humble, unassuming blogger who would rather the ideals of positive interaction, rather than any monetary gain. However, I will, if you are really nice, go and check out your videos :) Then I can vote for my 'favorite' aka in correct English,'favourite'. When are you guys going to learn to spell in correct English?
And over a thousand participants. Not sure I can control my excitement over this knowledge.
Anyway, without self-promoting, cause I would never do such a thing; don't y'all forget that I will be doing my alternative postings to this gosh darn fun 'challenge' that brings further awareness of the alphabet. Please do drop my shy and humble site sometime. You may note that I can do serious blogs.
And with that Tina, this highly anticipated, highly sought after comment from me shall end for no other reason than I have to go and comment on loads of blogs. Kind regards and all the best with the challenge. Here's a bonus letter 'Zed', sorry, 'Zee', for you :)

I just voted. Nothing like a kick in the pants for inspiration :)

Great way to promote the videos. Mine's one of them, but in no way do I want either the ten dollars or the votes. I do want people to participate in the April Challenge though!

That's a generous offer, Tina!

J. Kwiatkowski-Schuler said...

I voted! I voted for the one that did A-Z in classic rock albums because that's what we've been listening it at our house and it coincides with my new portrait project!

Al Penwasser said...

I just voted-everyone's was great. Even if any of them sucked (none did), it would still be better than anything I submitted!

Hey Tina,
Don't forget now. I voted cause I'm such a terrific human being and loved and adored by beings in every known dimension and beyond....
Anybody want a genuine British Penny? Sorry, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star, I'm kidding :)
And, are y'all impressed, not only do I leave a bonus comment, it's four in the morning, over here, in lil' ol' England!

Tina,

Since, I have three videos in the challenge, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to vote, but surely will if I am, lol. I've read your A to Z Guest post AND made my first visit to that Revivals blog to read your second, all before finishing my morning tea!

As you know, I am already signed up for the challenge, so I'm here to welcome remind those who are on the fence that the A to Z Challenge is only 2 weeks away...and welcome bloggers to participate in the Monday Movie Meme, which is hosted by myself and Smurfin' the Web.

Cheers!

Nicole
