$2500 blog contest – this is crazy!

This Turned out to be a SCAM!! The Contest was won by a blog that had only been up for a couple of days before the closing date. It left a lot of bloggers very unhappy and Ashwin got a lot of nasty comments from them. The posts have since been deleted but the blog still exists. I sure have learnt my lesson and I apologise to anyone who followed the link on my blog and entered the contest.

I have seen a few blogs that run competitions now and then with prize offerings running into the hundreds of dollars. Its a good way of promoting your site and driving up traffic.
I came across a blog and I thought that there had to be a mistake in the prize amount or this guy (Ashwin at Ashwin Khanna Dot Com) is just crazy!!!!

Over at Ashwinโ€™s blog, you will find one crazy blog owner!! You can win $2500!! To enter just copy this text and paste it in your blog!! But hurry, this competition will not last long! So get posting!

The closing date is the 20th of August and the $2500 prize will be payed out via PayPal. That easy.
