(MONDAY AM UPDATE: James Scott is the winner of the bracelet contest with his guess of 4901 — the total pageviews count from yesterday was 4818. James was only off by 83. Nice work!
There will be more chances to win. In fact, I’ve already got something in mind….)
Here’s a fun idea for a lazy Sunday blog entry: how about we have a little contest?
What You Can Win
My wife is really getting into making jewelry. One of my sisters (no, not the one with the really great blog, and not the really great artist one and not the one who’s a bigshot captain in the Air Force who’s about to go to Afghanistan. The other one. The extremely successful photographer one) mountain bikes and asked her to make a bike chain bracelet. So my wife bought a bike chain, took it apart (she is now much more comfortable with a chain tool than I am), and made my sister a bracelet. She liked the results so much she’s started incorporating links into more of her work. Here’s a bracelet she made yesterday:
Beside the bike chain, it’s sterling silver, with a number of different gemstones. A very cool gift for yourself (if you’re a woman) or (if you’re a man) for a woman cyclist you know.
How to Win It
Just post a comment with your guess of how many pageviews this blog will get today. Be sure to include your email as part of the post, so I can get back to you if you win. Yep, it’s that easy.
Why am I doing this? Well, as an excuse to show off how cool my wife is, of course.
To keep people from guessing ridiculously high numbers, bear in mind: the traffic I got yesterday was really abnormal. Today is much more sane. As of when I write this (11:20am), I’ve had 2092 pageviews.
(Update: The contest is now over — see top of post.)
If more than one person guesses what turns out to be the winning number, the first one who made the guess wins. Of course if nobody guesses the winning number, the closest guess wins. Ties go to the lower, earlier guesser.
