The first contest

I finally got my act together and I’m posting here the first contest which will be done on this blog. This is a way for me to give back to my readers and, let’s be honest here, get some more subscribers.

For this first contest I’ve chosen as prizes two copies of Mandela’s Way, a book about which I wrote here previously, and two copies of Secrets of Super Achievers, a book which I own, but I haven’t written about yet.

To get a chance to win one of the four prizes you only have to:

  • share this post on Facebook or Twitter ( I might ask to see the share at the end, if you are selected )
  • write a comment down below ( any comment will do, as long as it’s polite. It’s only so that I can count how many people are participating )
  • subscribe via e-mail to this blog ( you will only receive a single e-mail whenever a new post is added to the blog, and you can unsubscribe whenever you want )

The competition will end on Sunday, the 22nd of March, at 17:00 GMT, at which time I will use to select 4 numbers, which should correspond with your position in the comment thread down below. As such I would like to ask you to only post ONE comment, or I will have to disqualify you.
After I have the 4 positions, I will check the e-mail which was used to post the comment and if it’s also present in the subscribers database, I will contact the winner to get their address and other details.
If the e-mail used to comment is not in the subscribers database I will assume you didn’t follow step 3, so I will pick somebody else.
If you were already subscribed via e-mail, then you can skip step 3.

Once everything is confirmed, I will write the winners at the end of this post.

I hope I covered everything in this post, but if I missed anything please be patient as it is only the first contest and there will be many others in the near future.

Thank you for participating and I wish you all good luck.

PS: You must live somewhere where Amazon, or another good website, can ship for a reasonable price. Thank you for understanding.

The winners

I would like to thank everybody who chose to participate and I apologize for the late announcement.

The winners are:

Rebecca G
Shelley Hickey

I will contact everybody via e-mail within 48 hours to begin the process.

If you see this post after the contest has ended I suggest you still subscribe by e-mail, as there will be other contests in the future.

  1. Hey Claudiu,

    Congratulations on putting together your first contest. I’m so excited for you and I hope that it ends up being all that you had hoped. I haven’t done one myself. Shame on me right but I have my reasons.

    Sounds like some good giveaways and I’ll be sure to spread the word for you too. I wish you the best of luck.
