This blog will certainly never earn the ad revenue like Perez Hilton’s blog nor would I win a contest to be paid $80k to blog for a year, but maybe you will. Leave me a comment with a link to your profile if you decide to enter the Blog for a Year contest. [as seen on Mom o Matic]
How does it work?
The rules are simple: anyone who would like can enter the competition. All you need to do is create a profile on this site, donate to the Blogger Fund, and start collecting votes for your profile. The competition will end when the Blogger Fund reaches $160,000 or Jan 1, 2008, whichever comes first. In either case, when the competition ends, the person will the most votes will be offered the job.
What will the winner receive? Can I work on any blog I want?
The winning blogger will be offered a contract to work on his or her own blog full time for one year. The blogger will be paid $80,000 in even bi-weekly installments, just like a regular paycheck.
This competition is for you to work on your blog, not mine. You can blog about any topic you want. In fact, when you sign up, you are asked to link to the blog you want to promote.
Why are you raising more money than you are paying the winner?
There are other expenses with running a contest like this including taxes, legal work, design, development, hosting, and marketing. Extra funds are used to cover these costs. If there is any leftover, I will use it to fund future contests (if this one is popular enough).
