After winning a free banner ads from a blog contest recently, I told myself that I will join another one again. Actually, I am seeing a lot of running contest but I am quite choosy. This will be only my third one. It is not because their prizes are low and the mechanics are weird, but because I am looking for the one who can amaze me again. Besides that, the blog must contain useful topics and should be posted magnificently.
Right now, I am frequently joining a generous giveaway by Article Specialist since I really love reading his quality articles from his Blognetwork.
And now, I am so glad I found another one. This is from Marcus Hochstadt of Internet Business Guide. So who’s he? Well, when I was starting at Entrecard, a widget is so popular and I am sure you noticed it too. It has a picture of a gorgeous office lady displaying a big card with a picture of a man.I hope my memory searched me right. If you are missing this widget, he changed it to promote his contest which you can see within this post.
So who is he again?
Well, when he was still a bachelor he was once among the top 5 Sales Executive of a French chemical company who eventually found himself loosing the job. But being a smart guy, he moved from Germany to Brazil and now enjoying the cool place near the beach with her wife. Since 2005, he is producing video demo for a well-known Canadian Internet Marketing company and currently owning three web sites. How do you do that, man?
And what is he blogging about?
As a token of gratitude to his learning about Internet Marketing, he decided to unselfishly share it to everyone through his blog. After making his first post on January 1, 2008 (yes, New Year’s day), his succeeding posts were remarkable. I should know because he is included in my Very Serious Droppers list in which I will make a surprise post some time soon.
So what is so amazing about his contest?
Before I continue, I advise you keep a glass of cool water on your side and sit comfortable. This will be quite long, not because of the mechanics but because of the amazing prizes that came from a bunch of generous Entrecard members and friends. This means that the contest is for EVERYONE!

These are contributions for 200+ winners (!) with a monetary value of more than $7,000+ (!!) and exactly 66,666ec (”ec” = Entrecard Credits)!!! This is by far the BIGGEST Party Contest in Entrecard’s History!
Now, I will let you visit his post for the easy mechanics. But do not delay in joining; the drawing of winners will be on May 1, 2008.
By the way, of all the prizes at stake I will be hypocrite if I say I would not want to win one of the BIG prizes worth up to $357 per single prize!
But then, I will still be honored if it’s the interview by Alexys Fairfield from Soul Meets World. Besides being priceless, it’s fun to feel like a celebrity. Seriously speaking, the main reason is I want people to know more about me and hopefully, I can share a part of me that they can learn from.
So what are you waiting for? Check his contest post immediately before the time runs out.
