Why a repeat post?
Well, I’ll be totally honest: since TequilaCon ’08, the traffic on my blog has gone through the roof. Thank you all for reading and commenting. And I apologize for taking a long time to get back to you all in the comments, but I assure you that I will continue to respond to all of your responses.
Anyway — a few weeks back I talked about the rotating headers which adorn the top of my blog. Many of them come from my obsession with Google Maps, Google Earth and Microsoft Live Maps, which I use to find all sorts of landmarks.
Let’s see if you can guess where each of these locations are…
(Yes. Some are obvious; some are not as obvious. Be as detailed as you can. Winner gets due praise on my blog.)
The reason I’m reposting this is because I had zero entry submissions last time. Zilch. I’m guessing that this was the case for two reasons: I didn’t have very many readers to start with, and I didn’t offer a flashy prize to the person who could guess the locations of the most pictures. Now I have more readers.
And a prize.
Yes — up for grabs this time is a Mighty Kite mini-kite! This is a small kite that will fit in a handbag, comes with forty yards of line, and is pre-assembled. Fun little toy, You can read more about it at Woot, the place where I picked up a few of these: Mighty Kite mini-kite. *NEW!* I’m sweetening the pot by writing a poem for the winner which I will recite while vlogging. See my latest “List on the 3s” for more details.
HERE’S WHAT TO DO: Instead of posting your answers to the reply section of the blog, go ahead and email me no later than Tuesday, May 13 Friday, May 16 at 11:59pm EDT with your answers to: contest @ Shiny’s Takeout dot com (without the spaces and punctuation, of course). I’ll tally results and post the answers on Wednesday — as well as identify the winner with the most correct identifications. (If there is a tie, I will pick randomly among the folks at the top.)
Ready, all? Here we go! (Oh — and click on each to enlarge)
I have about fifteen more. Let me know if this is interesting enough to do again…
