The winner of the Twitter Mug is ..

Congrats to Elizabeth (@Table4Five) for coming up first in my Twitter Mug competition. The draw was very random, I dumped people’s names in bits of paper and got Arthur to pick one our of a bucket. (I really wanted a hat, but couldn’t find one, so had to make use of a bucket). Anyway, the mug is winging it’s way towards her and should be there in a few days.

So, here are some interesting stats about the competition. People could sign up in one of 2 ways, via a tweet, or a post and comment on the blog. Over the span of the competition (4 days) I got a total of:

  • 125 entries on Twitter (each with a link back to my competition page)
  • 91 new followers on Twitter (though I can’t vouch they are all due to the competition)
  • 11 blog posts entries (each with a link back to my competition page)
  • 66 comments on the post
  • 4 trackbacks on the post

I thought that was pretty good considering I ran the competition during a quiet period and the prize cost me less than $20. I think I’ll do it again in the future, but have a bigger prize (or maybe more than one prize). So, if you want to know about it, follow me on Twitter or subscribe to my RSS feed.

So, what prizes would you like to see?
