Let me see if I can word this the way I want to?
John from John is Fit is having a contest.
He is offering cash prizes (Like $400 cash) to people who promote his blog. I think you get one entry if you write about his blog. You can also get entries if you write about products he reviews or you put his blog on Digg or StumbleUpon (Which I have no earthly idea how to use properly!)
In a nutshell, he is offering money to promote his blog. Not a bad idea if you ask me. But…..
Now, if you know me, you know that I am going to write a catch here. Well, here is the catch.
John does not need to do this to promote his blog like this.
He is too great of a person for this!
Last year I was just starting to blog when John wrote me. He wanted to interview me for his website.
I was so honored!
John’s website was the coolest weight loss site! He was like a celebrity to me! First off, he had a site that did not have the words blogspot or wordpress in it. It was a real website.
One that wanted to interview me!
He had reviews of cool products. Items that I have actually used in the past. items I have not seen reviewed on other blogs (Except for those stupid NURU exercise cards. Please stop the insanity!!!!!).
I was impressed.
Not only that, but after getting to know John, I realized he is probably the nicest person I have met online. He always gives support to people that need it. He promotes new weight loss blogs, and he gives really good tips on how to get your name out there.
The interview he did with me is one of my favorites. I liked the way he asked the questions and I loved how he arranged the pictures.
Not only that, I love the way he writes.
Since last year, John has not blogged that much. In fact, I believe he only has 19 posts in 2009, and most of them were in January and February.
I wish he would blog more because I enjoy reading his posts a lot.
John, if you are reading this, I think you are a great blogger! You have helped so many people lose weight and make better blogs. You are an inspiration to male and female bloggers. You have helped me become a better blogger, more than you will know!
I do not want to be entered into the contest though. I will never take money from a friend.
