How Blogging Can Catapult Your Small Business

Enter the Green by Design Contest & Help the Planet

Cisco-Badge-Contest-Ad Last Friday, we blogged about how, thanks to you, our Green Badge program was a rousing success. We were hoping for 100,000 impressions across the blogosphere and we surpassed our goal by nearly two million!

When we realized how many of you were adopting the badges we designed, it occurred to us that you might have a few eco-friendly designs of your own you want to share with the world. That’s why we partnered with One Million Acts of Green brought to you by Cisco to create the “Green by Design” contest.

To enter, all you have to do is create a Green Badge with an earth-friendly design and/or message. One winner will be chosen each week this month and that person’s design will be featured on Everything TypePad for bloggers to put on their blogs, as well as on blogs across Six Apart Media's advertising platform.

Like the previous badges, the winning badge will link to the One Million Acts of Green brought to you by Cisco website. One Million Acts of Green is a collaborative environmental campaign encouraging everyone to go green. One act at a time. The goal? One million acts of green because, as we all know, we’re more powerful together than we can ever be apart.

Each weekly winner will also receive a one-year subscription to MailStopper, a junk mail stopper service provided by Tonic. Plus, we will donate $150 to a charity in the winner’s name. (For a list of charitable organizations the winner can choose to donate to, please see the contest rules.)

Two runner-ups each week will receive an honorable mention on EverythingTypePad, as well as a one-year subscription to MailStopper.

Plus, when the badges receive a million impressions (and we know they will!), Six Apart will donate another $1000 to The Climate Project.

We know that TypePad bloggers are amongst some of the most creative and generous people on the web, and that the Green Badges you create will help inspire people to take care of our planet, record their Acts of Green and make a difference.

Do your part by entering the Green by Design contest today. Because when we all do one act, we act as one, and help the planet.
