This is my 99th post and I’m really excited about reaching the big 100 as it’s a huge step for me. One year ago I didn’t even know what a blog was and now, not only did I build my own blog but I am reaching 100 posts with a nice readership. Because of this I want to celebrate by increasing my readership even more and having an Entrecard give-away.
Here is the gist of the give-away:
I will be giving out:
At least 10 Entrecards to the first 100 participants.
100 Entrecards to a random 10 participants.
500 Entrecards to 2 participants with the best Luck related articles linking to me.
1000 Entrecards for 1 random participant.
I will write a post with the winners of the 100, 500 and 1000 Entrecard prizes with links to your sites.
The random winners will probably be chosen by someone else such as my wife or kids to prevent any biases unless I find a better way such as using random.org .
Here is how to enter:
Subscribe to my rss feed.
Write a post on your blog and link it to any of my articles.
Leave a comment on any of my articles (something meaningful).
Share my 100th article (39 Ways to Increase Your Luck, coming tomorrow) with your favorite Social Bookmarking site (StumbleUpon, Digg, etc…)
Then email me at luckortunity at gmail dot com to let me know that you’re done.
This contest will end on September 1st and I hope to post the results and give out the prizes soon after that. Just one last note, I will only give out the 1000 Entrecard top prize if I there are 100 participants in the contest and the 100 Entrecards prizes if there are at least 50 participants.
I am a typical person more or less that has always tried to get away with doing the absolute minimum to get by. In school, I did my assignments last minute, I barely passes some of my tests, I crammed for everything and didn't care about retaining any information. I always wanted to be successful and get lucky but my problem was that I thought that luck and chance were synonymous. One day, all that changed when i found out that there was more to "Luck". I learned that it was possible to make your own luck and that people that were "lucky", all had very similar characteristics. I made a conscious decision to become one of those lucky people and the world started to open up. It didn't happen overnight and I'm still not there yet but at least I know what to look for and what to do. Recognizing the opportunities to get lucky is only the beginning of the battle. Now I have to train myself to jump on every opportunity and one day be truly "lucky".
