As many of you know a few months ago I started a website called itmightbelove.com. I had used a variety of blogging platforms and site templates but just wasn't happy with what I was seeing. Finally last night I was able to tweak a wordpress theme I liked and give it a nice custom and clean feel to it. It was a lot of work but I am so happy with the end result and would love feedback - good or bad (most of you should know I'm pretty immune to negative comments, lol) I was also thinking about having a contest for visitors of my site to celebrate the new theme and hitting the 4000 visitors a month mark! I'm still trying to decide what exactly to make the contest for and of course what prizes to send out. I'd like to get a few sponsors in on it but not sure who would really be interested. Anyways, those are my latest blog accomplishments - are you a blogger? What have you accomplished lately on your blog? Did you design it yourself or use a template? Have you thought about holding a contest for your site visitors?

Oh my, I liked the last one very much, but will go see if it is now improved, lol. That is a lot of visitors. I don't think mine will be there anytime soon, but that is OK as mine are mostly for fun anyway. What I earn of myLot just about pays for my monthly subscription to TypePad and with all its bells and whistles, it makes blogging so easy that I'm in there every few days posting things that are interesting to me, and to at least a few others. So that is rather symbiotic. My blog is mostly there to keep me motivated to learn new things and try new things, creative and technological both, and an unexpected side effect is that it is forcing me to get more involved in photography. It also forces me to get off the computer from time to time and go back to my drawing table, since one of my blogs is devoted to my own art and requires a new painting or cartoon every now and then. Yes, it is the carrot and the stick approach. I never in a million years thought I would be earning money from them, but guess what? It can happen. As for the contest, that I had not considered, but was thinking of maybe offering SplashPoints to visitors who performed certain tasks. Have you heard of that reward program: https://www.splashpoints.com/

My latest blog achievements for conradmiguel.com would be 15k visitors/month. I do have 50-70 feed subscribers tracked by FeedBurner. Also, I designed my own theme. I've thought of holding my own contest, but it still did not come as a reality yet. My blog's url is http://conradmiguel.com/.
