A Contest So Easy a Consumer or ActiveRain Newbie Could Win

I was chatting back and forth with my friend Margaret Woda about her latest contest - cool idea.

See details below:

Via Margaret Woda, Crofton Maryland Real Estate:

Win this ActiveRain ContestIf you've never written a blog post, and don't know where to start, you'll like this contest...

If you're an occasional ActiveRain visitor, discouraged by lack of comments, unsure about the groups and categories and tags (and the like), this contest is for YOU…

If you're a "professional" Rainer with a million points, this will be a quickie for you and you can get right back to your serious blogging…

If you're not even a real estate professional -perhaps a prospective homebuyer or seller - yes, even you could…


You don't even have to write a post to win. All you have to do is share the TITLE or TOPIC inspired by the following photo and write it in the comments of this post. Whoever submits the TITLE or TOPIC chosen by the judges as Best (in the sole judgment of the judges), will be awarded 500 points, and the runner-up will get 250 points - just for commenting.

If the winner carries this a step further and actually writes a blog post using the winning TOPIC or TITLE, that post will be featured. Be sure to include a link to that post in your comment so we can find it, and enter the post in the infant new Inspired by a Photo Group.

Please feel free to lobby for your favorites, and don't hesitate to enter more than once (up to three times). This is all about having fun! Okay, here's your inspiration:


NOTE: If you submitted your idea in comments to the earlier post about this contest, no need to do it again. (Inspired by a Photo) Judges will check the comments of both that one and this for entries.

I find photos to be a great source of inspiration for blog topics and titles. Here are some of my previous ones:
