The Last Day Of The Contest

Less than 24 hours to go, and it looks like Google shows Eric Blackwell is still in the lead. More than anything, I am happy Eric has taken the high road with this contest and has used this contest as an opportunity to educate people, build relationships, and raise money for a good cause.

They are donating the money to the Eco Preservation Society of Costa Rica. Having personally been to Costa Rica and discussed some of the environmental issues they face, I think this is a wonderful thing.

Thanks to Morgan for making this possible and props to Eric for doing a good deed.


The Quiet Before The Storm

There are only a few weeks left in the contest, and things have gotten pretty quiet. At this point, it would be extremely difficult to break into the ranks of the top 10 and have a serious chance at winning the prize. Only someone with some seriously high powered websites would be able to do so.

Thus, with the contestants relatively well established, I know that it is only a matter of time before the last minute deal making begins. People will negotiate for last minute links and possibly redirects. Right now the leading official contestant is still Eric Blackwell‘s team, and he has offered one more spot on the team to whoever makes the largest contribution before the end of the contest. However, ironically Ardell‘s controversial entry is back at the #1 ranking at the moment.
