The Great ‘No More Blogger’ Giveaway

Katdish and I are not fans of the blogging system.

She and I have some choice words to say about blogger but I’ll be very British and reserved and just say I’m not a fan.

Blogger is great when you’re starting out blogging, it really is.

The problem is, it has its limitations, quirks and annoyances and at some point it’s time for blogs to grow up and move on to better… MUCH better things.

Yes, I’m talking about WordPress.

In response to our feelings about blogger, we have decided to run a joint giveaway.

I run a website/blog hosting business ( and a blog design service too. Katdish is BRILLIANT at the aesthetics of blog design and knowing what will work and what won’t. So together:

We’re giving away a year of free self-hosted wordpress blogging! Including site design by Katdish and me for one lucky winner.

We have three prizes to give away:

3rd prize – One year of free blog hosting + a standard license for Standard Theme

2nd place prize: One year of free blog hosting, a domain name (.com or .net) and a standard licence for Standard Theme

1st place prize: One year of free blog hosting, a domain name (.com or .net), a standard licence for Standard Theme plus site design by @Katdish and Peter Pollock

Total value of all prizes: $775

  • Entry is easy. Simply leave a comment on this blog post and/or on the one at Katdish’s site and you get one entry into the prize draw.
  • Get an extra entry every day by tweeting about this giveaway and adding the hashtag #nomoreblogger
  • You can also gain additional entries for the next ten days by visiting our sites and checking for our daily entry opportunities.

All entries will be numbered. At 12:01 CST on February 28, 2011, we will close entries and use the random number generator to pick our three winners.

The giveaway is not just open to blogger users. Anyone who wants an awesome new WordPress blog can enter!

If you don’t need blog hosting, you can still enter and then give the hosting to a friend, if you win.

If you’re already a customer of New Blog Hosting and you win, we’ll add a year to your renewal date!

Standard Theme

You may have noticed there that we’re giving away a copy of Standard Theme with each prize.

That’s because the very awesome John Saddington (Twitter | Tentblogger | Landing Page) has kindly donated three standard licences for this theme which was recently listed as one of the top eight Premium WordPress Themes.

Enter today and in two week’s time, you could be the proud owner of a new self-hosted, totally fabulous WordPress blog!
