I started a Friday contest asking a question. This is separate from my reblog contest.
All people had to do is follow me and respond with an intelligible answer to my question. The prize was to be given 100% of the payout for my Saturday post. I'd also give it an Ecency boost (or promote it if they declined to Boost it), and get it as much attention and upvotes as possible.
The goal was to promote my posts, increase my followers, create engagement, and also give back to people who took the time to interact with me.
The first contest went fairly well, but this last one got very little participation. I wanted to get some interaction going, but I only got four comments, and two of them were after the deadline to be entered into the contest.
I still want to host an ongoing contest, but I want it to be successful. I can come up with ideas all day long, but if it's not what everyone as a whole wants to see, then it's not really of any value.
So the question is, what do you want to see in a contest as far as rules to enter and prize(s) are concerned?
Anybody who comments with a quality suggestion will get put into a drawing to win 5 HSBI for their time and feedback. I'll pick the winner Friday night, so get your entry in by 12/8 @ 10pm MST.
Each month, I give away a $1 Goldback or 4 HBD. The winner gets to choose.
Note: Some countries may have prohibitively expensive shipping or delivery, which may not be feasible. I reserve the right to award the winner 4 HBD instead of a Goldback at my discretion.

How The Reblog Lottery Works
- Follow me. (If you're not a follower, you won't be entered into the drawing)
- Look for "Reblog lottery" in any of my post titles.
Make sure it's for the current contest month, and is 6 days old or less, and click "Reblog".
(Reblogging an older post will not get you an entry)
- An upvote is appreciated but not required, and does not give you additional entries.
- You'll get one entry for each qualifying article you reblog this way.
- At the end of the month I'll enter your name into the drawing and pick a winner at random.
Note: Bots are not eligible to win
