View Full Version : I'm giving away $50 in Amazon GC's.
08-12-2000, 12:56 AM
I need How-To articles. Original ones. So... I'm having a little giveaway. The best original how-to article on any subject that's emailed to me will win $50 in Amazon GC's. Emailing it to me gives me permission to use it on my site, with you listed as the author.
Examples might be:
How to tie a tie.
How to remortgage your home.
How to overclock your system.
What do you guys think about this? Maybe run this till August 31? Be creative and do try to think about such things as spelling and grammar. (Which is why I'm NOT writing this stuff.)
P.S. No how-to articles on how to pick your nose or anything. lol

How about "How to Prevent Totalitarian Government?"

Hehe, nice idea although I don't think I'm qualified to write any "How to's" except maybe for one:
"How to be a loser"
Yeah, maybe I'll write that one, yeah...

I'll be happy to send you a how-to article on how to make money writing emails from the privacy of your own home! Just send me $5 and I'll send you an email telling you how! (sigh)
Anyway, 9 or 10 years ago, in college, I was forbidden from giving a how-to speech in my required communications class on how to commit various acts of phone fraud. In fact the school was so desperate to keep me from giving the speech, that they gave me an A for _not_ giving it. They wouldn't even let me present it to just the instructor.

Cool, You just gave us great ideas on how to get A's in class. I think I will present how to plant, nurture, harvest, and smoke pot in my Biology class. They want the development cycle of any living organism. I'll even bring samples in.

Naw... actually, I don't do that stuff (smoking). I despise it.
My guide titled "The easiest way to earn Free Amazon.com gift certificates" will be in the mail soon, Maggie. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

The pathetic thing... only two people have sent in their articles. UGH. Can't even pay people to do it. I also added a thingie where you WILL get $5 in Flooz if your article is chosen to be included in the site. And maybe the $50 too... but it's still not helping get submissions. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/frown.gif

patience Maggie, patience. Remember, you're actually asking people to do something to earn the $50. LOL. that takes effort. Give it a little time.
08-15-2000, 08:58 AM
Give me until tomorrow (when I'm back in the office) and I'll write you a passel (sp?). Patience, grasshopper.
