By the time you read this, I’ll probably already be wed.
I’m getting married today, so I’m going to celebrate by holding a CSS Newbie contest in my absence! Up for grabs in this contest is a 12-month subscription to CushyCMS Pro!
For those unfamiliar with CushyCMS, visit their homepage and check out the short video screencast they’ve put together. Basically, CushyCMS is an extremely easy way to give non-web-professionals access to update certain sections of a website, without having to give them access to the source, or build the site in a special templating language. You build the page like regular HTML/PHP/Whatever, add in a couple of classes, and CushyCMS takes care of the rest. Read On…
A couple of months back, I ran a contest for my subscribers here on CSS Newbie. The prize was a copy of Eric Meyer’s pocket CSS reference book and a plug on my site. The winner of that contest was one Matthew Moro. Hopefully, Matthew has received his book by now. And, finally, this is his plug. :)
Matthew runs a website called CSSblog.it, a CSS-phillic resource for web developers whose mastery of the Italian language (which is limited to barely deciphering the menu at our local Spaghetti Works) far exceeds my own. Luckily, Google’s translation of CSSblog.it seems to be fairly accurate – giving me a window into the sort of work Matthew is doing.
CSSblog.it is part of a larger network of tech-related blogs in the Italian language. Other blogs include Tuxblog.it for Linux users and PHPblog.it for PHP aficionados (to borrow a Spanish phrase).
It’s been a great, if absurdly busy, August for me, and I hope the same can be said for you. But all good things (including the month of August) must come to an end, and so to ends the CSSnewbie Subscriber Contest.
The contest has ended, and a winner has been selected by the true random integer generator at random.org. Each contestant was assigned a number based on the order in which I received their email (see — you’re more than an email address to me! You’re a number as well!), and a number was chosen randomly from that total.
The winner of the subscriber contest is Italy’s own Matteo Moro, who writes on CSSblog.it. Matteo will be receiving a copy of Eric Meyer’s CSS Pocket Reference as well as a website review here on CSSnewbie (date/type to be determined).
Thanks to all of you who entered CSSnewbie’s first-ever contest. I had a lot of fun reading the quips everyone tended to include in the emails they sent me — it made me check my contest inbox probably more than was necessary. The success of this contest suggests that I might hold another in the future… as soon as I come up with something new worth celebrating. August only comes around once a year, sadly.
If you have any feedback on this contest, or on any future contests I might hold, feel free to either email me or leave a comment on this article. I’d love to hear what you have to say.
