Grunge and sexy

I just launched this blog a few days ago, without having the idea on how will I encourage visitors and readers here. I don’t even make up my mind on how will I force other bloggers to visit my site. I am starting to freak out and sometimes an impossible idea comes to my mind that is to act to like a hunter and shoot some bloggers here on earth for them to visit this blog. Sooo desperate of me…just kidding!

For sure I won’t do that…peace! I am not particular with those anyway, my forte is to fire up my Adobe Photoshop when there’s a need to beautify & transform something. So I grabbed an image from Ms. Joyce’s album and prepared my entry for her contest.

Did I mention the word “contest”?

Well read on…  Anyway here is my entry for her ample activity.

Was that really her? You may just ask her if you’re in doubt. If you’ll ask me I’m not sure either.:)

You might ask me again, What contest?

Uhm allow me to share this first…There are a lot of ways to acquire readers of a blog.  Do a massive email campaign, run viral contest on twitter, create a viral video and upload it in youtube, spend 4 days sharing your link at plurk, etc, etc, etc.

One of the aspiring most influential blogger in the Philippines launched a birthday contest, yeah you heard it right, a contest. The mechanics of the contest was so difficult to achieve men! You will be choosing … umh… will you just find the rules here. Since I was one of the lucky sponsors I did give some prizes for the said contest…. Oh by the way, one of this days, I might launch a contest on this site, so if you would like to join, check this site regularly for you not to miss it. Deal?

Whew! a lot of prizes are at stake. Here are the list.
