I recently asked a question about contests? A number of you were kind enough to reply and I appreciate you taking the time to write out an answer. Every comment you leave on another person's blog has an impact on that person. It could be an affirmation that they are putting out good content, it could be constructive (or not) and it most certainly lets them know someone is reading. That's a good thing.
When I ask a question, it is sometimes to help me understand you a little better. It's easy to fall into the trap that everyone looks at things the same way you do and getting a little feedback is a positive thing. Especially when it comes from such a varied group of people.
The November contest is going to require a tiny bit more than just leaving a comment on this post. Many of you are already entered, some more than once, and you didn't even know you were entering. I like to reward the people who comment and if you recall, one of my contests simply was a randomization of all the people who left comments in the previous month. This time it's going to be a randomization of all the people who answered some questions I asked over the last two months.
What's that? You didn't answer any of the questions, but you still want to enter? Lucky for you, I'm going to link all the eligible questions right here so you can still answer and get an entry in the contest. Every question answered is one entry in the randomization. If you've already answered a question, you already have an entry for that one. Only one entry per person, per question. Here are the 9 eligible questions.
What is vintage to you?
What are your collecting priorities right now?
What is the cornerstone of your collection?
Starting over...What would you do differently?
What is your favorite...?
What is your best baseball memory?
Does timing really matter?
Have you ever...?
I'll leave this contest open for a couple of days so make sure you get an entry or 9 by answering some questions. The prize will be at least two packs of 2010 Chrome and something that fills your collecting needs.
There will be only one more chance, the December contest, to get into the year-end contest in which all the monthly/special winners will be eligible for a prize of unequaled (not really) and unparalled (again, not really) value.
