Freshly Pressed Again!! + 1,000,000 views contest
Wow! a LEGO a day was “Freshly Pressed” for a second time on WordPress’ homepage for photography. Wicked!
I’m honored – again! Haha
Though I found it interesting a photo from 22 days ago was the one linked – I hope they see all the rest of the photos!
Newcomers: there are over 500 LEGO photos waiting for your eyes on here! Check the archives for the first year’s project, and scroll back through this year’s too!
This makes a perfect opportunity to announce the next contest. With the Freshly Pressed getting the blog a lot of views today, we’re going to reach that 1,000,000 mark a lot sooner than I expected – which is awesome.
So, here’s the deal.
When we hit 1,000,000 views, that day’s (or the day after – or sometime right about the time, LOL) I will be posting another special photo. There will be a contest to go along with that photo. I won’t tell you what it is yet, but it isn’t another caption contest.
The prize, you ask?
Well, in honor of such an awesome milestone, the prize must be equally as awesome, right?
The winner of the contest will receive their very own, signed copy of a first edition PHOTO BOOK featuring a collection of photos from the two years of photos. Now, the book obviously has not been created yet. I am going to wait until the conclusion of this year’s project – which won’t be until July 31st. So, you’ll have to wait a while. I’m holding off because if I make it now, who knows what awesome photos from the future I may be missing out on! It won’t be a collection of every single photo from both years, but more a collection of my, and fan favorites. (Otherwise the book would be huge and since I’m self publishing it it would cost a bazillion dollars to order and ship, sorry!) But don’t worry, there will be plenty of awesomeness.
It is important to note the book will not be for sale – I can’t do that for obvious reasons. Unless a publisher comes along and wants to help…HINT HINT SOMEONE OUT THERE!!! 🙂
But, there’s no rule that says I can’t create one for myself and give it away as a gift or prize.
So, the winner will have to wait a few months for their bounty, but I’m sure you understand.
Residents outside the United States – I am not sure if this will be open to you yet – I WANT it to be, but I need to research the cost of mailing a heavy package overseas. I’m a lowly teacher on a laughable income with a wife in grad school – so $$ is pretty tight. If anyone out there knows what it would cost to ship something overseas via UPS, let me know.
So, that’s all the news for today.
I heart you all. You make this happen.
