$54K Of Prizes Wraps Up — Courtesy Of ProBlogger
You may or may not have heard that Darren Rowse of Problogger.net is celebrating his blog’s birthday this week. If you haven’t, then it may interest you to know that Darren is has russeled up over 100 sponsors to give away over $54, 000 in prizes in rotating contests this past week ending 8pm October 8th.
If you’ve missed out, you still have time as Problogger is having a bunch of rotating contests every 8 hours. He’s given away a whole bunch of art / photography swag, followed by some great parenting-related prizes, to some fantastic holiday packages (3 night stay in Walt Disney World?). And that’s not to mention a great prize that allows you to give away $1000 to your charity of choice (and its still going on).
At the time of this writing, there’s a computer and gaming related prize give-away, and there are three more 8 hour prize related give aways planned (including a 24h one).
If you’re looking to score some free swag this weekend, all it takes is for you to leave a comment (although you should read the instructions, because sometimes they need to you to comment on something specifically). Since there are around 100 comments per post (I suspect the computer and gaming one is going to be a lot more though) and there are usually 4-6 prizes per give-away, you can predict your chances.

Thanks Tony – it’s been a fun week so far!
It’s a party! That was very creative, kudos to Darren for all the work he put into it.
Darren — Happy birthday, dude. :)
Valeria — Darren can correct me if I’m wrong, but Lara is managing the contest, and given that many of the contests were running ’round the clock, its been a heckuva lot of work she’s done as well. :)
That woman is amazing, and a joy to be with. Thank you for the correction, Tony.
Happy birthday to Problogger. That’s quite a generous amount of swag that they are giving away.
