Default We're Giving Away iPhones!

Nursing Jobs.org is sponsoring the Official Launch Contest for Nursing Voices by giving away not just one but two brand new iPhones*.


The first iPhone will go to the one who scores the highest point total from Sep. 15 through Oct. 15, according to this point system:
  • Every post here on Nursing Voices earns you 1 point. The posts must be worthwhile, too, not just one-liners like "I agree!" or "Cool!" Posts like that will not be counted. (Likewise, remember the Rules and Guidelines for being part of Nursing Voices.)
  • Every blog post you make about the contest on an established blog with a link back to Nursing Voices earns you 10 points.
  • Linking to the contest sponsor (Nursing Jobs.org) in the blog post earns you an additional 10 points.
Also, because it's most important for you to actually be a part of Nursing Voices and not just blog about it, you must be within the top 25 posters during the contest period for your blog points to count. In addition, blog posts can only count for a maximum of 25% of your overall point total.

So what about the second iPhone? That one will go to the one who refers the winner. On the forum registration form, there's a field for the member name who referred you Nursing Voices, so make sure you tell people to include your member name in the Referral field when they sign up!

Let the contest begin!!

* Winners can also choose a comparable iPod if they prefer that over an iPhone.

What an awesome contest! Thank you so much for having a contest like this.

I just blogged about this contest here:

I hope to see a lot of people joining this! I'm new here and so far, I'm loving it! Sadly, the iPhone is not avaliable in Canada so if I win, I might have to choose the iPod Touch.

Thanks, Jess! I actually didn't make the header...another blog reader made it for me. He totally suprised me with it and I think he did a really good job. Look forward to hearing from you (and seeing you around here, too!)

Hi Shane, I have a question:

Does the blog post have to be only about the contest or can we include a mention of the contest in a blog post about something other than the contest?

It has to be a blog post specifically about the contest. Additionally, just like with repeated, brief posts here on NV that are of little value, your blog posts need to be worthwhile. Even if you're willing to spam your users with repeated posts about the contest, we won't be willing to count them all toward your total We'll definitely be taking into account the spirit of the rules and not just the letter.

Should I rewrite my post about this contest? I'm not too sure if my blog post is "worthwhile" now...it's just a post that's straight to the point...

Oh, and I'm very sorry if my blog is kind of sad and plain. I'm not too much of a blogger and I've been deleting posts, deleting blogs and whatnot over the last few months...I know my blog isn't as great and interesting as PixelRN's or Caroline's...
