A Contest!

I have received much feedback from my previous post. You've given me a lot to think about. Thank you! I think I have a much clearer idea of what you would like to see from me in the coming year.

Since I'll be kicking off the new year with a new project, I've decided to take a lesson from Bob, the traveling dog. He just recently updated his blog with a whole new look - new masthead, new logo. It looks great. Check it out for yourself at

Bob has inspired me to create my own unique look for WealthTogether. I need a logo and masthead that show what WealthTogether is all about. One problem - I don't have an artistic bone in my body. So I have decided to sponsor a contest. Submit your designs and I will select one to use on all of my WealthTogether sites and merchandise. Here are the rules:

1. Must be an original design. No previously published or copyrighted material.
2. Must be submitted in jpg, gif, bmp or png format, 8 MB maximum size.
3. All entries must be emailed to by December 31, 2008. Winner will be announced January 3, 2009.
4. Winner will receive $250 prize, an interview on the WealthTogether blog, a link to your site from all of my sites, credit for the design wherever possible and more!
5. Winning design will become the property of WealthTogether, Inc.

This is a great opportunity for an aspiring graphics designer to get some free PR! I can't wait to see the results.

What a great idea to have a contest to create a new masthead and logo! I don't draw worth a darn, myself, but I hope you find a great idea among your readers, Melodieann. Love Bob's site and new logo. I remember when we traveled with Bear, finding dog-friendly hotels was a big deal cuz he was a big lug. Maybe AAA could commission Bob to write the pooch version of one of their travel guides.

Contests are always a great way to go. I will make sure I spread the word in my upcoming newsletter.

One thing I would recommend is you have more than one judge and judging be on a point system. Getting a celebrity judge would be really cool.

I'll be happy to discuss this with you further if you like.

I know a few who'd be interested, passing on information.
