I almost forgot that I had a contest going in which I was going to award $62.50 for a randomly selected commenter on a post for which I am supposed to receive $125 from some folks who are being paid $250 for me to post it. I won’t be doing another such post as the first one was merely a $62.50 gimmick to generate some incoming-links (note to drive-by readers: that was a joke, however I won’t be doing anymore ‘sponsored’ posts).
I selected a comment randomly through the scientific method of asking someone to pick a number and then counting down that many comments.
And the winner is Hugh Roper which is somewhat ironic as his comment was: “I donâ€™t know if a blogger should accept pay for post, but a person who comments definitely should not.”
Congratulations, Hugh. As soon as I receive my $125, I’ll send you the $62.50 which you can accept or do-with as you see fit.
