Ia! Ia! Contest Fhtagn!

Well, would you look at that? Cthulhu is my Copilot is one year old today!* I am so proud. It seems like only yesterday it was a mere paralarva, working its way towards the surface of the ocean known as the blogosphere in search of nourishment. Now, it’s a lovely subadult, its long tentacles enwrapping nearly 200 posts.**

Makes a guy feel like celebrating. And, you know, contests seem to be a big thing right now.

I actually first thought of doing some kind of contest about seven or eight months ago, but never dedicated any quality brain time to it because my mental flow chart kept leading back to a single problematic question: Will anyone even want the offered prize(s)? And, invariably, the cynic in me would shout louder than the optimist and the dreamer and the resulting conclusion would be “Hell, no!”

Then one day a bunch of my VOX peeps spoke up quite positively about sporting a CimC t-shirt. I was blown away. Speechless. There are actually people out there who would sport my blog’s logo? I was deeply humbled and I decided that I must indeed have a contest. A drawing – you know, to keep things simple. Yeah. And I could do it on video and even have The Deej help me for added entertainment value! He’s always so wonderful in videos. Could only help ratings…

And that’s how it was decided. Just like that. Bam. We’re stone-cold doing this thing. We’re giving away some t-shirts! Hell yeah, we are! And not just any old standard CimC t-shirt that is available to anyone any time.

No, we’re talking about a special, Limited Edition logo on a black t-shirt – not available to the general public!

*looks around with a grin, nodding contentedly*

Alright then, the official rules for the Cthulhu is my Copilot 1st Annual Anniversary Contest are as follows:

1. The contest is open to anyone with a VOX blog. You do not have to be in my neighborhood to enter, nor do you have to add me to your neighborhood.
