Remember when I was all regular with my Peep of the Week Awards? And how you liked it? Well, I’ll probably do that again when I get my mojo back. However, there is now a contest running, and you can enter to win fabulous prizes, some of which are money, just by commenting on my leetle blog. Here’s a little tidbit I scraped from Andy’s site.

What are my sites visitors requirements?

They must be registered at and have their site url registered and verified.
They must also have a profile description entered at
They cannot spam.
They do not need to have CommentLuv installed on their own site. It would be nice if they make a post about winning the prize on their site and link back to the site where they won the prize (your blog, not

That’s it! Just go register your site, create a profile and start commenting. There will be prizes. You can bet I will be commenting on featured sites. I already won $20 on his sneaky little pre-contest test commenting contest. The contest will run for two weeks, so you have multiple opportunities to win.

Update: I already won a 2 gig memory card by commenting on another commentluv site.

Great news for Blogspot bloggers! Yes, I’m looking at you, Lou, and Hyphen Mama, Zoe, Nan, and a whole bunch more, forgive my laziness in not linking to the rest, they are legion. I just know these URLs off by heart, I’ve linked to them that often.

My favourite go-to geek guy, Andy Bailey, has created the code for CommentLuv to work with Blogspot blogs. He has a video tutorial on the download page, and if you follow instructions, you can be up and running with CommentLuv on your blogspot blog in about 13 minutes. If you have a Typepad or Drupal blog, he has goodies for you, too.

What this will mean to you is that you will be able to host a contest with great prizes. You will need to sign up for the contest, but commenters win by leaving a comment on your blog.Your commenters will be selected at random to be winners.

I’ve been wicked excited about this, and just waiting for the tutorial to be ready so I could share the good news.

So, scoot! Check it out. Thanks, Andy, for a spectacular plugin.

Big news! Andy at FiddyP is cooking up a great contest with many exciting prizes. All you need to do is to get the latest version of CommentLuv for your blog, and register at That’s it!

And when you comment at other sites that have this bee-yoo-ti-ful plugin enabled, sometimes a notice will come up instead of your last post, saying that you have won a prize. The contest hasn’t officially started yet, but get yourself over and register your site, so that every comment you make on a blog with the plugin will count as an entry when the contest is up and running.

Can you tell I’m excited? Get coding, Andy!

My favourite go-to geek guy, Andy Bailey, has perfected his fabulous CommentLuv plugin.

Check this out. It tells you where and how to download and use it.

Blogspot bloggers? You can have your own CommentLuv working on your site if you will change your comments to Haloscan.

Now, there isn’t any reason bloggers cannot have CommentLuv! He uses his own server, and if you register at, it will show what blogs you’ve commented on, what ones have linked to you, all kinds of cool stuff.

He has entered his plugin in a contest, and I think he should win! Can you vote for him? I’d like to see him get the recognition he deserves.

Go get it, register at and then see what happens when you comment here.

Best plugin ever.

Thanks, Andy!
