You know, I don’t have a chance of winning, but I was thinking how could it be that ipod prizes go to some really deserving young people who are doing well in school, their community, or in some music program. I would love to see this or future contest be something we all work together for a collective good. If I won, I would do just that with the prizes.

We count referrals by using our web site traffic log analyzer. The clicks are redirected to stat software that records the referral. It displays a list of websites, most referrals is #1 and so on.

Whoa, this is AWESOME!

Here’s mine—->

I have a question, are we allowed to post the badge + link multiple times on our blog so whoever comes across it won’t have to go dig thru the other pages when the post is pages/days ago? Or can we only have it on our blog site just once?

Okay, I downloaded and uploaded the badge into my blog but I’m not getting the blinking arrow. Can someone tell me how to get the badge into a blogger template? (I also included the link to the book page in my text. Is that enough?
