You guys know I don't post much about this guiding thing but the truth is that if I don't ever do anything to promote at least some web site visits I'm wasting my business membership here. So................
As soon as some items I have ordered arrive I am going to do a Monthly Contest that will be sponsored by Life On The Line Fishing
This will not
be a caption contest and as I'm ready to kick it off I'll post an easy thread to understand how the winner will be determined. I hope this will ad to the overall enjoyment members get from using the forum.
By the way, I have added a ton of new material to my own web site which is linked on my signature here, the blog especially
I could really use some web traffic because that is what helps people find my site. The more visits that it gets the higher it ranks on search results when someone searches "Alaska Fly Fishing Guide" or similar.
I appreciate your support in getting the site recognized by the world. Now go on and click the Link
Here is the way I think this game will work;
I have a bunch of items ordered, not exactly big ticket items but the kind that I gather members can use. You would be amazed at what you can learn about a group by reading posts
So, when I am ready to start this we will have a thread with pictures and description of an item. Then anyone interested in it can post to that thread 'one' (1), time. You don't have to say much, just enough to register as a post. Depending on how fast the post count goes the contest / game may only last a week to keep odds good for all who enter.
At the end of the time limit on the thread I will close it. Then if there are 357 posts on the thread I will have Nancy choose a number between 1 and 357.
That post will be the winner, pretty much an on-line drawing sort of game. Pure luck in this one, no need to be clever but the one entry per member thing will be an honor based thing because I really don't want to know who has entered the drawing so I will not view the thread.
That doesn't mean I won't ask another moderator to scan through to be sure someone doesn't try to stuff the box so to say
Sounds fair huh? I like it and it'll be fun to see how the members respond.
