Do Me A HUGE Favor. DU This Huffpost Contagious Festival Entry
Edited on Sun Jun-18-06 09:22 PM by DistressedAmerican

I have set up a new entry page at Huffington Post's Contagious Festival site:



Your entry is now live and publicly viewable at
http://distressedamerican.cf.huffingtonpost.com . A link to your project is also
featured in the live rankings on the front of the Contagious Festival homepage.
You can improve your standing in the rankings by sharing your site with friends,
family, bloggers, journalists, or anyone who you think will enjoy your work. So
spread the word and check the rankings regularly to follow the competition.

Good luck!

The Contagious Festival Team


The main contest page is:
http://cf.huffingtonpost.com /

My entry page is under the Taliban Telemarketers Link. Ranked 35 of 35 right now.




I would really appreciate you stopping by taking a look. That is all you need to do to help me out. I have all of my most recent work there with highlighted links to my Flash animation entries. I also dusted off an old classic header for those that are familiar with my site.

I would really appreciate your support on this project. There is also a link to share the page with your friends at the bottom of the page if your are so inclined.

Please keep kicked if you would. :kick:

Thanks a lot DU! :grouphug:

DA

P.S. Kat you rock. This was a great suggestion!

14. WOW! Great Work Folks!
Just looked and I've moved up another spot overnignt. This could really help my site and work out. There are some real heavy weight judges involved with the contest.

I really appreciate the support!

:woohoo:

There are a few on the list ahead that are not separated by many visitors. Should be able to move through several today if things keep on rolling!

Again a HUGE thanks to my awsome, kick-ass, totally rocking buddy Kat for the suggestion!

23. If Folks Would Post The Link At Other Sites That Would Help As Well!
Just a thought.

I do not have accounts at Kos or some of the others.

Anyone that wanted to pass the word along would be doing me a great service!

I'm sure there are three DUers that have not clicked the link. HElp me out. A strong start will be crucial as I'm starting so late in the contest.

Sorry to sound like a telethon. At least all I'm asking is you click a link!

Thanks folks!

59. One last quick update...
Edited on Thu Jun-22-06 12:44 PM by DistressedAmerican
This has been a real help. By getting a good push, the word has been spreading quite well. I entered far too late this month to ever hope to compete against folks that already had thousands and in some case tens of thousands of views racked up. But, with the steady traffic from here and elsewhere, I have stayed on the "Top Gainers" board since I posted it.

That is in very large part due to support from DUers.

The entry has gone from 35th when I posted it a few days ago right on up to 22nd and it is still climbing steadily! My web traffic has been great as well.


I REALLY appreciate it.

Please keep checking the link and sharing it through the end of the month.

http://distressedamerican.cf.huffingtonpost.com



Every vote will help keep me make up some ground in front of the eyes of the judges!


I have something brand new lined up for next month and It will be up from the first on.

If you liked Steve Martin's "The Jerk", Just wait...


Thanks folks!
