Charlie and The Carsonified Golden Ticket

Wait...I'm not Charlie, I'm Mike! However, the folks over at Carsonified are holding a "golden ticket" competition for one person to get free access to all Carsonified events in 2009, one of which is all-expense paid.

It also includes a backstage pass to the events and an invite to the VIP speaker dinner of one of the events. To enter, all you have to do is post about the event on your blog, linking to the Carsonified post and get at least 25 comments (that are not spam/you, one comment per commenter) by October 1st. If you reach that, submit your post to them for the live draw on October 2nd.

These requirements are quite interesting. The comments rule makes it more likely that a developer/designer/etc of good quality will be eligible as they probably gain 25 comments easily on their posts. For example, they have a following of commenters when they write a post related to their industry, hence someone who is actively engaged in their industry.

Ok ok, so maybe I don't get comments that easily and could post web dev related content more frequently, but it's worth a shot. Leave a me comment on this post, it would be much appreciated :)
