Five Year Anniversary Contest Announcement
Sons of Twilight is approaching its five year anniversary of being a blog. I have not been highly active over much of that time and the world of blogging has changed but I would like to mark the occasion. So I will be giving away some minis on December 10, 2013. Since it is 5 years there will be 5 winners. The prizes will be announced as the contest proceeds but will generally be 1-2 minis or bits packet in the ~ 28 mm scale from a variety of the games I cover here (Blood Bowl, Chainmail, 40K, and WFB) . I am think about 10 different prizes to choose from that the winners will select 1 in order of preference. The contest starts now and last the one month to December 10, 2013.
How do you enter? Easy, you have to leave a meaningful comment on a blog post on Sons of Twilight that currently has no comments (excluding this post). There are tons of posts with no comments so you should have no problem getting this. You can only earn one entry this way and I will reply to all the comments letting you know if it qualifies as meaningful to me. The second way to earn an entry is to do your own blogpost advertizing this contest. Put up the post and leave a comment on this page letting me know. Finally the third way is to leave a comment on another gaming blog in a post with no comments (not your own blog) that was published before November 2013 where again I am looking for meaningful and just add at the end of the comment that it is sponsored by 5 years of Sons of Twilight. Only 1 entry here also. Leave a link to the comment here and I will add my own and log your comment.
So to sum up 5 winners: 1 entry for first comment on post on twilight40k.blogspot.com, 1 entry for advertizing in your own blogpost, and 1 entry for first comment on an older post on any other gaming blog. 3 Entries max per person. The ordering of the winners for the prize pick will be determined by the quality of the comment you left on twilight40k for your entry. Why entries for comments? I do not think we leave enough. I get about 300-400 hits per comment which seems pretty weak. I have tried to increase the rates I leave comments on peoples posts to and will try to make sure that if I read a post and it has no comments that I will add one if I have anything meaningful to say provided the comment system is not google+. I have a high opinion of my opinion so if I was interested enough to read a post I should be able to generate some response worth reading. You should try this also not just for free stuff but to try to build the community up and support those bloggers who unlike BOLS (who get more comments than useful) are probably looking for feedback.
