Writing great content is a crucial part of blogging but just writing good content alone will not bring readers. Sometimes, we have to reach out to a wider audience and give them a chance to know about your blog. From then on, it is up to them to become a reader or not.
Contests are a great way of reaching a wider audience and Binary Moon is doing just that. Chances of winning apart, it does bring curious participants to see who they are competing against depending on the nature of the contest.
I learnt about Binary Moon’s contest from Chris at Blog-Op. Binary Moon is offering PR7 links to anyone who writes a short post (100- 200 words) and link it to an article from their archives. Entrants have the possibility of winning the following:
- A link in the roundup post for all entrants residing in the home page for a couple of days.
- All winners will receive a link in Binary Moon Blogroll and it is currently valued at $150.00
- Top winner will receive a website review valued at $200.00 at ReviewMe.
Check out the Binary Moon Links Competition post for complete details. The competition ends 15th August.
Binary Moon Custom Login Plugin
Binary Moon has released a popular WordPress theme named Regulus. While browsing through their archives, I noticed this nice tip on how to create your own Custom WordPress Login Page. In fact, they have released a WordPress Plugin with excellent help on how to get it done! I might give this Plugin a whirl.
