Win the Ultimate Blogging Package by Suggesting a New Feature for Blogger
In celebration of Blogger Buster's first birthday, Amanda is running the first ever site competition where you could win the ultimate blogging package by taking part in a community project!
The Blogger Team are constantly developing new features for us to use. While we could make use of the Blogger wishlist to vote for the features we'd most like to use, there is much to be said for the value of raising awareness through our blogs!
What better incentive to post about the features we most desire from Blogger than the chance to win the ultimate blogging package..?
To enter Amanda's competition and participate in a community project, please read the original competition post and ensure you validate your entry!
My feature for the wish list would be to have CommentLuv for Blogger...that way I can see what my visitors are posting about and also be able to return some link love...
Win a Custom Blog Template for your Blog!
Enter and win a custom blogger template of your choice. Please note the template is for Blogger only. The prize includes a matching 125×125 entrecard/ad button. Agi's competition will run for 1 week and the winner will be announced on Sunday, June 29th.
