June 2009 Contest Winners Announced!

July 1, 2009 · 11 comments

I can’t believe June is already gone and it is the first of July! Where the heck did the month go? You may remember that I announced my biggest giveaway ever, a contest that was open all June. With 7 total prizes and cash to the top 3 including a grand prize of $250 cash to the winner I figured this would generate a lot of entries. In the end, I didn’t get as many as I had thought - which was good for you if you entered! Your odds of winning a great prize were really very good. All in all there were 47 different people who entered, and a total of 110 entries.

Want to know if you won anything? Well you are going to have to check the video tape! I have posted both a high quality .WMV video and a low quality YouTube one. I suggest just watching the .WMV unless you can’t view it for some reason in which case the YouTube video will have to do. I didn’t have my font size quite large enough so it is very hard to see everything in YouTube but I do speak out the winners too so that should help.

So here you go, the winners:

June 2009 Contest Winners! (WMV format)
June 2009 Contest Winners! (YouTube format)

Congratulations to all of the winners! Please use my contact form to give me your PayPal email address (for prizes 1-3) or your shipping address (for prizes 4-7). Remember, I only ship to the continental U.S. If you are not eligible the prize will go back into a prize pool to be used again at some later date.

Prizes must be claimed by July 15th.

One of the things I learned in running this contest is that there are a lot of blogs out there that appear to do nothing but sign up for contests. I don’t blame them, but it really goes against the spirit of what I tried to do here. In the future I will probably limit such contests to my fellow weight loss bloggers, which should really help with the odds of winning!

Anyway, I had fun giving away cool prizes. Hope you had fun winning them!

wow THANKS John!! I WON!!! haha

I’ll send my info in now..I love the process that you used! I am just now learning google docs too..you seem very good at it!

I was impressed….I understand what you mean about the giveaways/contests blogs and mine is one of them lol

I am going to do more regular type blogging, and probably will have a separate blog..I know you weren’t referring to anyone in particular, but I get the frustration totally..I have been back to your blog several times since entering though.I enjoy your posts!:)

Thanks for a great contest! Curious…what happens if noone claims the money?haha ;)

Congrats Joey. You have been a regular contributor since you entered the contest, that puts you in a different category than the “pure” contest only sites in my book. :-)

Hey John,

Yea I have this blog, which I’m using to comment and won a prize, but I also run a personal weight loss blog. Since I wrote about your contest on the contest blog, I figured I’d enter with that site. If contest blogs weren’t aloud I would have used my personal blog. Either way, I appreciate the prize. :)

No problem David, congrats on the prize!

Wow! Congrats to the winners. I am really not lucky with randomizer lists.

I won nothing, it was exciting watching the video though and I kept my fingers crossed throughout the draw. $250 would of come in really handy as well I’m off to Vegas on Wednesday for UFC 100.
Great contest though look forward to more.

already contact you..waiting for the reply.

Your email doesn’t work and your entry post (in fact the entire blog) has been deleted. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

Congrats to all of the other winners.
