Last Blogging Idol Contest - Nice Prize for Winner

Hi everyone - I am going to make this short and sweet. . .I want to win Blogging Idol!

When I was first introduced to this contest by my buddy at Winning Startups, I joined the contest more out of curiosity than anything else. When I realized on July 1 that there were over 100 Bloggers and most of them information or tech blogs, I didn't really think I would have a chance. But guess what - I have been in and out of the top 10 Bloggers all month and this week, I am at #9!! There are a little over 400 subscribers that separate me and #1 - and with your help, I believe its doable! Might sound crazy - but I really believe that you and I together can make this Mommy Blog the winner!

Ok -here is my bribe to you - for the person who solicits the most new subscribers for me between now and 11:59pm on Thursday, July 31, that person will win the following:

1. 500 business cards (2-sided, full color, full bleed, 2x3.5") donated by Concept Design Studios

2. An original Sara Rose Tutu - custom made tutu for your little princess!

3. An informative business guide donated by Operate It Right that will teach you how to tell others what you do for a living! The OperateItRight Guide to Articulating What You Do™ will help you develop 6 key marketing messages:
Tagline that sets the perceived image of your company
Elevator Speech that answers the “What do you do?” question in a way that makes them want to know more
Compelling Marketing Message that clearly explains what you do, who you help and what you help them achieve
Your Story to explain what drives you to do what you do
A Reason to Buy Now that makes sure your listeners know what you offer
Call to Action so your listeners know what you want them to do

4. $25 Starbucks Gift donated Sue Barenholtz of World Venture Travel - stop by to see how she can save you lots of money on your next vacation!

Yes, one winner takes all!

Ok - so, you want to win and now you need to know what to do? Simple - tell all your friends and/or the readers of your blog about Mommy Meryl and Blogging Idol Competition and tell them to subscribe to me!

1. Your "recruit" needs to Subscribe to Mommy Meryl Blog via email (on the top left side bar or you can click here): Subscribe to Mommy Meryl by Email

2. Your "recruit" needs to leave me a comment here and tell me what their email is that they subscribed with and who referred them to me (that would be your name). If your "recruit" doesn't want to leave a public comment w/ their email, they can certainly email me at mommymeryl@gmail.com and leave me the same information in the email as they would in the comment.

3. This contest ends 11:59 PM on Thursday, July 31, 2008 and the winner is simply the person that recruits the most new subscribers for me between NOW and July 31, 2008. If each one of you recruit at least 4 - 5 people for me that could be the push Mommy Meryl needs!

Remember, they need to subscribe via email so I can verify that they signed up!

Thank you or all your continuing support!
