Win a Wii

Darin Carter is holding contest where one lucky person will win a Nintendo Wii. As you recall, he's also holding another contest where someone will win a PS3. Both contests end on the same day: August 31st. With this contest you have to write a 150 word post on your blog about the most valuable information you have learned from his blog.

For example, even though Darin Carter’s blog is about online search marketing, he also tends to post some interesting facts that are not necessarily about marking every once in awhile. I found his post titled “Top 15 Funniest Consumer Goods Labels" pretty funny. Here are a few samples that I found particularly amusing:

  • On Nytol Sleep Aid — “Warning: May cause drowsiness."
  • On most brands of Christmas lights — “For indoor or outdoor use only."
  • On Sainsbury’s peanuts — “Warning: contains nuts."
  • On Tesco’s Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) — “Do not turn upside down."
  • On a bar of Dial soap — “Directions: Use like regular soap."

If that kind of stuff is your kind of humor and/or you’re looking for tips on how to market your website/blog/etc, then check out Darwin blog. Don’t forget to enter the Wii contest!

Deadline: August 31st
