Comments for money

Online Tech Tips is having an RSS readers comment contest to thank their readers by giving away cash for the 800th, 900th and 1000th comments left on that blog. You don't need to be one of their RSS readers to participate though you do need to leave a comment – for any article on the blog – that's meaningful and not just a ‘give me the money! ME!'

Comments for even more money

The FreebieSociety Forums is celebrating hitting 3000 users by trying to make a mega-long thread in their forums. Anyone can join and the US$200 winner is the person with the most posts (replies) on this thread by 01/12/07.

Even your shopping list might do

Litemind's group writing contest is about lists. Blog a list of anything and then get voted it high enough to win the US$100 loot. Get your entry blogged by 11/26/07.

Keep every resume you've ever had on a USB stick (literally)

The Prize Blog is offering a real wood 2GB USB stick to a random blogger who joins their contest by 31/12/07. I have to admit, they do look pretty.

Prove your presence online

Online Presence is yet another blog about making money on the Internet. Their contest aims to get as many bloggers as possible to review their site. The site's design is functional and gets the job done putting the focus on their articles and some of their many ads. Many, but not too many ads, which is considerate when you take into account that the blog is about making money after all. It would be nice of them to create credibility by showing that they themselves are actually making money through their blogging. Ends 31/12/07

    Going through these posts for the Captain Up contest, I’m amazed at how much they reflect the entire history of blogging. I do wonder, though, why I never see comments from the other top players in the contest. There is really no other way to get such a high score.
