Support for Surf Excel Matic #GetSmart Contest
If you have any questions on the Surf Excel Matic contest, this is the place to ask them! What does everyone think of the topic?
One more contest:)
Just a question..
Though the topic seems to be totally independent, but are we supposed to endorse the brand by writing about it?
You don't have to endorse the brand to participate. Good luck!
I wish I could enter the contest - I want an iPad 2.
hehe, thanks man.
I think it will help me to enter a contest after long:)
@ Renie It's time you need to blog now! It has been three months since there was any new post on your blog.
The contest will be judged on creativity, originality and interaction.here interaction with whom is mentioned?
@ Renie You need to clear the doubt atleast now or it is bound to enter every discussion thread of contests
The interaction would involve - the quality of comments (not number) and your interaction with your readers on them and how you are able to drive discussions around the topic. In no way when we say interactions does it factor the number of comments.
Dhatt! This one word disqualified me from the contest! My blog interactions are limited to 3 regularly sporadic readers!
All the best Pramod. Waiting for the autobiography of your stains.
Why can't you wash your clothes in your house and why do you wish to wash your clothes at Benaras?
ranjith, yehan thode oonche level ki baat hai, not washing clothes, the soul wash.
Oh Sorry Pramod. I was reading soul as soil all these days. Has the journey been completed?
Hi Pramodji! there is no better place to wash soul than Benares....a boiling pot of past, distant past and Indian religiosity ....happy journey :)
DRINKING IS INJUROUS TO HEALTH

- Certain cancers
- Injury, violence, and death
But sleeping is fine. Take inspiration from me and sleep for 8 hours every day.
Wonderful!Looks as if IB and the sponsorers want to gift every user with an i pad.
@ Renie everyone needs an i pad here. Please bring the sponsorer for it soon.
Its a new trend - that big corporates are spending on blog and picking up new ideas and masala for future ad commercials.
Originality - that's fine
creativity - that's fine
interaction - its vague keeping the Ace card with the judges.
Finally, it's not clear whether the entry is for a narrative or a slogan based. Someone explained that there would be no insistence on product promotion for weightage.
That's fine. But do the contest need a beautiful story line or a beautiful quick drama like commercial. If that gets clarifed and last but not the least, the word limits.
Gautam, neither do the posts need a slogan nor do they need a drama like a commercial. Its a blogging contest! Write how you usually do if it were any of your other blog posts! And all the best!
Another topic I can write on
I could actually do with 2 more hours in a day.Atleast my blogging frequency would increase
But, even I want to know what does 'interaction' actually mean when it comes to the contest?
@ Ranjith : If it would be being on Inditalk all the time, I would have had better chances
Contests with these elctronic prizes are alluring and I break my head to win atleast in one.One positive thing is that it helps me to write on diff. aspects .I find myself on the marketing line through my writing .It makes me feel like I'm working for a marketing company and lots of employees here ..Moreover it's FUN and safe here
Keep my creativity going on...
Well you do write well and you better keep up your hopes...you could win for sure...nice post
Not just attractive prizes but also a good number of prizes which can make many people the winners. All the best Subash!
Hmm what if I win the Apple iPad 2 on the other competition? Will write this time for Playbook, this will help my Tech Blog ;)
@IndiBlogger members- what what you want? iPad 2 or Playbook?
BTW - Why not any Android divices? (since Galaxy Tab)
Crazy about Android.
playbook!!!! i want a playbook!!! please anyone who wins it, give it to me ok? :p
Writing for the playbook instead of the i pad isn't recommended. What is you win both the i pads or infact more than that for multiple entries are allowed? You may give one to me and one to Pooja
@ Avi To ensure that you get the playbook, simply submit multiple entries and become the first IndiMember to win more than one prize.
Well as I said I am a die heart Android fan, but, if I will get any one of these, it would be great, as I could shoot a video review of them for my tech blog. But...
@Ranjith: Win both??? Yeha ek jinte k wande hai... :P
If I win both, I will go creazy & give one to the first perosn I will meet loll...
@ Mods- BTW, iPad 2 =??? 16/32/64GB??? You know... It will become an extra inspiration for us.
Assume it to be 64 GB and write... so that you will be really inspired. It might most probably be a 16 GB since the details are not given
@ Ran - what if it's only a WiFi only? How to use the internet on the go... I need that desperately
Wow.. I love this contest.. What will I do if I get two hours extra? Superb na..
Someone is Special
Whenever we have these tech gadgets for grab everyone wants to win, but when it was Qvendo's gifts, where the prize amount was much more than that of an ipad, bloggers were not interested.
For all behind the indiblogger's *Hint=Hint*!
I think that the reason for low participation in Qvendo contest was the lesser number of prizes and not the worth of the prize. Going by what you have said, one can always sell one's prize and buy what he wants to though none like to do it.
There isn't any word limit for any of the contests on IB. Your post can be as small as 50 words or as large as 5000 words. All that you need to ensure is that the post is interesting enough to help you win.
All the best
Just wanted to clarify about entry submissions.. It says contest closes on 25th Nov midnight.. is that the same as last day to submit entry or is there a cut off date to submit entires too?? Please clarify. Thanks :)
25 th November is the last day to submit your entry. Closing date of the is simply the last date by which you need to submit your entry.
But still, it is recommended that you submit your entry as soon as possible so that your post and thereby your blog gets more exposure and unforseen circumstances may crop up in the alst minute.
And you can edit your submitted blog post as mnay times as you want till the 25th of Nivemebre (though I am not sure of it)
All the best
great ,too fast, rajashekar, i have not yet plotted a concept.
@ Pramod Ji - You will almost got your iPad 2 from the other competition, what you will do with another one? or you want Playbook this time?
hehehehe, no comments dude, I see every post, other than mine, to be better than mine,
DS, yaar, life is your's dude, but jo mila nai, uske liye sapana kaise dekhe, just fingers crossed.
hmm... but jo mila nai, uske liye sapana kaise dekhe, just fingers crossed.
Sir Ji fingers crossed rakhiye till the last submission date of this contest We will be highly obliged. Moreover, after (according to you IF) you win your first iPad 2 in few days time, make sure to keep yourself busy with that & avoid this
Hi I am new here and not familiar with the contest thing. Is "If you had two extra hours in a day, how would you spend it?" the topic? Also when I clicked on 'submit your entry' it redirected to indivine. I know I am sounding a little dumb but is this the standard procedure?
It's just like submitting other post links, first write about it on your blogm then come to the contest page & click on submit entry, then submit it like normal ways. Bingo...
and thanx avi. didn't see ur message. getting used to this platform
I guess its time that the interactivity element should be removed from contests. Its difficult to judge on this. Creativity should be the only decision factor. Many bloggers might have delved now into main stream blogging. So if interactivity means more comments ? They might not have one! If that means Indi Forum comments. It would be different. How can we judge interactivity between comments, indiforum, twitter, fb etc What weightage do they get...
Pretty darn confusing. Why not write a post as you would and if the judges like it you win ! thats it...
BTW 1 more question. Do we need to link back to anything ?
