It started with two kids and a dream (and a lot of hard work), and now Typepad is celebrating a decade of making it fun and easy for you to blog your passions and share with the world. Our bloggers have always been the heart and soul of Typepad, and we can't thank you enough for blogging with us. You rock!
Everyone knows the best part of a birthday party is
the cake the presents, and as our way of saying thank you for making the past 10 years so awesome, we have a few gifts for you! All week, we'll be doing things like posting about our favorite bloggers, sending out a particularly celebratory newsletter, releasing a spanking new (and super fantastic) Theme, and - last but not least - giving you the opportunity to win some celebratory swag with a blogging contest!
The contest is short and sweet - with a big payoff! Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to blog about blogging. Just publish a post on your own Typepad blog, and tell the world:
1. What you love about blogging, or:
1.b How blogging has changed your life, and:
2. Why you blog with Typepad.
That's it! Your post can be long or short, funny or serious, full of photos or full of memories - just make sure it reflects your passion, and that you hit the two points above, then share the post on your favorite social networking site (Twitter, Facebook) and email the link to your post to email@example.com by Midnight PST on June 24, 2013. Your posts will be read by a panel of esteemed judges (the Typepad team), and three winners will be selected.
First place: A rockin' Typepad t-shirt, a $50 Amazon gift card, and 6 months of Typepad service.
Second place: A rockin' Typepad t-shirt, a $25 Amazon gift card, and 3 months of Typepad service.
Third place: A rockin' Typepad t-shirt, $10 Amazon gift card, and 2 months of Typepad service.
Honorable Mention (that's everyone!): 1 month of Typepad service.
THE FINE PRINT:
Contest deadline is Midnight PDT on June 24, 2013. That gives you one full week to write up your post and polish it to a fine gleam of literary greatness (no pressure!). The post must appear live on your Typepad blog. To enter, just email firstname.lastname@example.org, and include your name and the direct link to your post. Prize packs will be awarded to the first, second, and third place winners, and all entrants will receive one month of Typepad service for free.
So come on and celebrate with us! You can even show your Typepad spirit by adding a badge to your blog (just copy one of the codes from a box below, and paste it into an Embed Your Own HTML module at Design > Content - read more here):
