I ran a bet/contest with my readers to see if i could break into the 5 digit mark for alexa. I gave myself until today to reach this goal. Alas, i have achieved this milestone and i have selected a winner out of the people who believed that i could. Most of you guys went for the larger prize of $100. Too bad the noob is kicking ass and taking names. The winner of the $20 prize is witchypoo. You are the latest winner on make money blog. Send me an email with your paypal email and i will paypal you $20 ASAP. Congrats!

I think i’m getting the hang of running different type of contests. The thing to running a successful promotion for you blog is to keep it simple. The easier it is to enter, the more entrants you’ll get and the more fun you and your readers will have. It’s also important to keep the duration of the promotion short. It keeps the buzz up and makes people keep coming back to your blog frequently. No one wants to wait a month for a prize. Waiting is not fun. Holding random competitions will increase your daily visits as well. The prize isn’t that important. I don’t offer large cash prizes, but people join cause it’s easy to enter and i payout right away. Keep it simple and you’ll start making money from you blog contests.
