I saw vertical icon Greg Hill at the OR tradeshow, and he reminded me about this promotional contest he’s involved in. Other than the occasional just-for-fun WildSnow spur of the moment contest, I’m burned out with contests as PR, as they’ve started to feel like a cheap way of getting quick attention. Much better we blog about the actual things or activities that are worthy, not those random ones which someone is behind with enough resources to seed out rewards. After all, this is WildSnow.com — not my-blog-and-I’ll-do-anything-to-get-you-to-visit-for-10-seconds.com
But yeah, there is an exception to every rule. Accuse me of being seduced by the huge reward offered by this one, or accuse me of being seduced by Greg Hill. Whatever happened, they get a freebie here — at least till our next blogpost.
(Editor’s note 2015, the videos we had linked here have been taken down. We leave this blog post up for historical context.)
