Hey, happy Monday. I have a cool idea and, if you have a minute, I’d love your help.
I’m looking for the best quotes from the entirety of this blog for an experiment I’m going to try out.
My theory is, I can take them, present them in a cool and unique way, and have them do really well on social networks– much better than they would do inside of a blog post.
I’d love your help to find them.
You’re probably new here– most of my readers have joined this site within the past month– so it’s highly likely that you’ve never visited my archives. There’s a lot of good stuff there.
I’d like to offer you the incentive to check them out.
So in one week, I’m going to give away between 5 and 10 prizes (not sure yet how many) for finding the best quotes from old posts on this blog.
They can be of any length and come from any post, but you’ll probably notice that anything before 2008 or so is not worth going through. (Just being honest.) :)
How to “enter”
Find a quote in an old post, and tweet it out mentioning my name, like so. Bam! You’re done!
To those who come find the best stuff, here’s my offer. Your choice of:
A Kindle Fire. The price for this baby is currently at $199. I’ll send you one! Yay!
A hardcover, signed version of my most recent book, the Flinch. There is no hardcover of this book available at any price, but I am printing a few for personal use and will send you one, signed, numbered, etc.
A one-hour phone conversation about your company or project. This can’t be bought either, but I have done things like this for large corporations at rates of near $1000 per hour. I’m, like, a total genius so this is huge too. If you want we can talk about kittens.
Something else? Honestly I haven’t thought this out that much, it’s kind of an experiment. Have something else you’d like? Add it in the comments and I’ll see what I can do. :)
