On April 18, 2010 I posted my first real episode of "Geek Out! with Mainframe". So beginning, April 18, 2011 I am starting a month long contest, through May 18, 2011.
Actually they are two mini-contests.
1) Comment on the show - any feed back on the show a) on the blog b) via email and/or c) voice mail (emailed or on the voice mail line) (up to 5 entries). I hope to include these in a feedback show soon after the contest is over.
Just email me, gowmainframe at gmail dot com, subject line "Geek Out! Comment Contest", with evidence, link. etc of your comment. You must include an email address where I can contact you in case you win.
You may comment as much as you like, or course; but a person will only be entered up to 5 times in this contest.
2) Promote the show - Twitter, Facebook, other social media and/or iTunes review (up to 5 entries)
Just email me, gowmainframe at gmail dot com, subject line "Geek Out! Promo Contest", with evidence, link. etc of your comment. You must include an email address where I can contact you in case you win.
You may promote the show as much as you like, or course; but a person will only be entered up to 5 times in this contest.
Misc: You may enter both contests, and a person may be entered up to 5 times for each contest.
Privacy: The email addresses will not be used for any other purpose, you will NOT be put on any email list as a result of this contest, nor will any of these email adresses be sent to any other party.
Your choice of "Geek Out!" swag up to $25 (not including shipping)
Your choice of any of the books/ebooks by any of my guests in the 1st year up to $25 (not including shipping)
If anyone wants to add to the prize pool, with books or swag, etc; they can, but these prizes may have additional restrictions.
Prize winners will be chosen randomly from eligible entries. A person is eligible to only win one prize package from among these two contests.
Restrictions: I need to be able to send it as a gift order from Spreadshirt (for "Geek Out!" swag); or Amazon US, B&N US, book publishers, or other similar on-line shopping site (from a legitimate source) that I have access from the US. A winner should expect his or her prize to come from one source, to reduce potential shipping charges.
If that is a problem, I will attempt to have them delivered to me & then re-shipped to you, but that may take a very long time.
Other: I reserve the right to make minor changes to the terms of the contest as needed. If there are any question or concerns regarding this contest, please contact me at the before mentioned email address.
Comments do not have to be favorable to be considered for a prize entry. Promotional messages kind of wouldn't be promotional if they weren't at least partial favorable, but I intent to give a lot of latitude in this regard.
Additional donated prizes (in addition to the two prizes mentioned above):
(in progress, but I've had at least 3 prizes to be donated already)
