I, too , have subscribed by email, but I am a bit confused about how many entries do we get if we do this “action: first time, in the third paragraph, you say we get 5 credits, then in the end of the post, you mention only 3 :). Make up your mind and correct the typo or whatever error might that be. Cheers

Gyutae Park on March 15th, 2008

Thanks for the heads up hts. It was a typo – and it should be 5 extra entries. ๐Ÿ™‚

Done. This is a awesome contest. It is like watching the PowerBall amount go up every time there is no winner. You will be over $10,000 in no time. Would be nice to see an H2 on that list. lol

Best of success with your blog.

Michael

Gyutae Park on March 15th, 2008

lol, great analogy. That H2 hummer sure does seem to be popular… Now off to look for one.

Michael Heindel on March 15th, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Sad thing is gas for an H2 would cost more then my current car payment.

Have a great weekend.

Michael

Subscribed. I Was really hoping for one of Shoemoney’s macbook airs, but even without it this contest is incredible!

Flimjo on March 17th, 2008

Even then, an Ipod Touch is pretty cool. My friend has one, and I was all about it.

SiteHoppers on March 17th, 2008 Subscribed to comments via email

Yup, and you can go drop Entrecards in your toilet and bring some ‘shitty’ traffic to someone’s blog. (that was supposed to be funny… get it?)

i best win some stuff

 
Marios Alexandrou on March 15th, 2008

Is the increased number of votes for this action a reflection of some calculation that e-mail subscribers are better than feed subscribers?

Gyutae Park on March 15th, 2008

I think any additional ways you can reach your audience, the better – especially since people are more prone to check their emails than their feed readers.

As for the number of entries, it’s not feasible to accurately determine who has and has not subscribed to the feed. But with email subscriptions, I can keep a tally and give entries accordingly.
