We’ve had this planned since well before the launch of this blog, but lots of stuff like American Thanksgiving and an unseasonal snowstorm threw some big, honking spanners into the works. But now is the time … it’s time for you, our readers to win stuff. Cool stuff. Stuff that Scot and I like, have tested, and use. Before I get to the goodies, let me tell you what you’re going to need to do to win.
In lots of our posts Scot and I ask you for your input, tips, and tricks. Did you think this was just comment bait? Okay, it was ;). Now, though, it’s for prizes.
From now until Tuesday 6 PM December 12 just leave a comment here or write a post and send us the link (don’t for get the pimp line … firstname.lastname@example.org) with your best work tip. Software, work life, meeting tips, etc. Next week, Scot and I will look at all the entries and pick some winners. Now, tell them what they could win Bob …
We have up for grabs:
- MindManager (Win or Mac)
- Activewords (it lets you automate tons and tons of functions on your machine)
- Anagram (it lets you make To-dos, appointments, and contacts right from your Outlook e-mails
- GyroQ for MindManager
- GryoQ Developer Licenses
- ClearContext (that awesome Outlook add-in that has made my e-mail easy to deal with)
How’s that! I would like to thank all the people who donated software for this contest. What would be very cool, and totally optional of course, is if you took a moment and downloaded and tried these apps (there are generous free trials on all of them) then posted a tip based on them. No pressure, really.
Want to know what I can’t live without (yes I have tried and used all of these at some point)?
MindManager (duh!), ClearContext (I’m finding more and more powerful everyday), and GyroQ. Don’t get me wrong, I was a power ActiveWords user and I have Buzz to thank for getting me hooked on MindManager. Anagram is also amazing.
So … let the games begin!
