Let there be Blogstakes!

A good friend of a good friend asked me for my ideas on how to promote his new product online. I took my time getting back to him since I didn’t really have an answer for him. When I finally did respond, I suggested a contest site that could be easily linked to by blogs and that he should give out prizes to people who signed up and the blogs that sent them.

He didn’t have any way to collect the contest data and I’ve been creating sweepstakes Web sites for clients since 1996, so I created Blogstakes.
