Secret Contest: 25,000th Comment

A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that my blog was coming close to receiving its 25,000th comment and I wanted to do something fun when that happened. I didn’t want to broadcast this because it would likely encourage superfluous comments, and I didn’t want that to happen.

I had a “secret contest” on my blog that only I knew about. I decided that the person who made the 25,000th comment would receive something that I use every day and couldn’t be a domain investor without. The winner will receive a one year paid membership to DomainTools (Standard), courtesy of me (disclosure: I am paying for this and not getting a discount).

This membership includes the following tools:

The winner is a person who has commented regularly on my blog who uses the nickname “Poor Uncle.” I’ve sent him an email and will coordinate with DomainTools to set him up with the account. It might take a few days to get going because I am on vacation, but I will connect with Susan and Monica at DomainTools to make it happen ASAP.

I really want to thank you all for visiting my blog and contributing with your comments. I believe a blog is only as good as its readers’ contributions, and I really appreciate your making my blog a much more interesting place to read and learn.

  1. I’m curious which topic was the comment for and what was the comment? I guess it was in the .co post you made a couple of days ago “Sell your .co domain before they expire”

  2. See, good things do happen to “Poor” people.

    Congrats and thanks for this secret contest E. Good call on not advertising it too

  3. Great,Congrats Very Poor Uncle..

    Hope that winner for the 30 k cmt will be a beautiful girl and I try my best to get in time …

  4. @ Elliot

    Just wanted to say a public thank you. Your gift was thoughtful and much appreciated..and it wasn’t cheap. For anyone who is interested you can go and look it up.

    To Everyone else:

    Great thing happen to Poor Uncle after Elliot announced that I was the winner of his 25,000th comment secret contest. Even Francois of known about my new found celebrity status and was jealous of me. 🙂 Now, it would be icing on the cake if someone would come along and acquire my CosmeticSurgeons.CO domain for about $1.5 million with 5% Life time revenue sharing. ChaChing!!
