Comment and win prizes!

I never knew that we could win prizes just by commenting until I saw a tweet from @smashing regarding their "comment and win contest". After posting a comment I noticed a similar website called instantshift, which hosted a similar contest as per the entry - "comment-and-win-a-free-membership-to-elegant-themes". Without wasting a second I posted a comment there too.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

Taking part in this giveaway is easy… well, maybe not that easy. We’re keen on seeing a lot of comments and want to see at least 5,000 comments in this post, so spread the word and help us get to 5,000 or more comments and then win one of the smashing prizes below. The 5,000 comment challenge is important, folks. If we don’t reach that goal, then the prizes get torched. Okay, they don’t get torched, but the giveaway only kicks in after 5000 comments

I wish I could win one of them. Try you luck by commenting. May be you could win a prize.

apnerve's hide blogger navbar widget

One fine day, I posted an entry on removing the blogger navbar, which can be found at :: How to remove Blogger Beta Navbar. This trick involved editing the HTML template, which confused many people (here I must admit that my description wasn't very clear). So I thought of making this trick easier for everyone and the result - a navbar hide widget.

All you need to do is click on the "Add to Blogger" button.

Wasn't that easy?

ps: Using this widget, you can choose any template you want and still have your navbar hidden.

funny comment trick

Yesterday, I sat all night before the comp, customising my blogger template. Starting with a 565 template by douglas bowmann, I ended up creating a new template altogether - a 3 column template with good SEO (Thanks to amanda of bloggerbuster and Antonio Lupetti of woork). But...(there is always a but) I wasn't happy at the result. Why? Because my blog seems to be still one among the most ignored and unread ones. So to make myself happy, I devised a small, funny trick. To be precise, it is too simple to be known as a trick. I added the following code


...And wow! I made the "0" comments to "4760" comments. Lol! but (again) the fact remains that my blog is still the same old unread and ignored one :(. So I removed the code now. Well... you can try this one out if your blog also gets very less visits :)

Please consider commenting if you like this trick. :)
