Free G1 Batteries To Thank My RSS Readers

Almost one month has passed since I began blogging and we just hit 100 RSS subscribers.  It might be a small number to you, but it is a milestone for me.  To show my appreciation, I would like to give away two extended life batteries for the T-Mobile G1.

To enter the contest, just do something to promote our site and then leave a comment here.  You could post a link to us on your blog, Tweet, or anything else you can show proof of.  Just include a link in your comment so I can verify it.  In order to qualify, you must live in the US due to shipping charges.

The contest will run for one week from today.  Next Friday, we will randomly select two winners.  Be sure to leave your email when you comment so we have a way to contact you.

I know you want a bigger battery

Stay tuned to our site for more give aways like this.  As the site continues to grow, we will be doing more and more contests you can participate in.  We have some exciting changes coming up including a site redesign and bringing on board more writers.  I am hoping to create a more community feel for the site, but any suggestions you guys have I would like to hear.

Thank you,

    Hey, I’m one of your 100, assuming you’re including Google Reader subs. Am not a G1 owner, so don’t worry about entering me in your compo. Just thought I’d let you know I pay attention to your blog as an aid to helping me decide which Android device to get when my current mobile contract expires in late (northern hemi) summer. Will hopefully be spoiled for choice by then!

  • Roy

    If you are handing them out, then I am going to enter the competition. I really like, because it always has actual articles and not just rumors about other android devices. I think the extra attracted attention that I will draw, will come from my article on Locale.

  • Michael

    I’m one of the 100 as well, and I’m happy to help spread the word – i read a couple of android blogs and this one is my favorite, so I started a facebook group for fans:

    I won’t lie to you, I did find this blog for the sole purpose of winning a free battery, but looking through the site, I’d have to say you’ve got a great thing on your hands. You guys are doing a great job in writing, too- keep up the good work!

    Buuuuut, of course, I do still want that battery. I’m a writer for Ripten, a video game blog, but I promoted you guys on my personal blog on Tumblr, since I’m not sure my boss would be so happy with me making a post on the site that’s not about games. Here’s the link:

    Once again, keep up the good work! I’ve subscribed to your RSS feed (101!) so I can keep up with the site as well.

    I am just a regular person who bought a g1 because I love and use google for lots of things and thought the phone would be cool! My 4 kids are totally impressed that Mom is so connected…my husband, not so much. I am fascinated by all the activity surrounding the phone and the developers, and am truly enjoying this site. I would LOVE to win an extra battery because I USE my phone like crazy everywhere I go!! Thanks for the opportunity! I’m promoting you on my facebook page to 200+ friends (Stacey Berger Brazier).
