The Quandary of the Self-publisher or Shameless Self-promotion but Someone has to Do It

Win a $100 Amazon or Barnes & Noble Gift Certificate and a Free Book by answering questions about my new blog and reading this brief article:

              Building Your blog Site Using Google’s Web Designs in Blogger

I thought I had a great looking blog site-and I did-until I stumbled upon a new combination of structure and color as I was experimenting with Blogger tools the other day. The result after only ten minutes or so was - well, in my own very modest opinion - stunning.
Don’t believe it? Well, okay, you be the judge then. Can you make anything look this good with Word Press? I’ve tried that platform a few times and haven’t had much luck. Maybe it’s just a matter of preference and I suppose it’s all very subjective but, from this vantage point, I greatly prefer Blogger. Please respond to this post at the bottom of the article as to what you think about the effectiveness of this new blog style and structure.

Now, if you have sufficiently checked it out please leave a comment about anything on the site that pleases you-either content or style-and this can be done in the comment sections beneath any of the posts-I will see them. Sorry but you must leave a comment to have a chance to win.

Next, take the on-line survey  (click the link at bottom) for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate and a free book  which would be any one of the following:

1) Comrade Anna (just published)
2) The Lucky Lobsters, 2nd Ed., (just published)
3) Jack (To be published in May, 2013)

All answers can be determined by reading the blog posts - you do not have to have the books.

The winning responder (who has the best answers) will be announced on this blog on February 28, 2013. Please email me at and copy and paste into the email two of your survey essay comments for any of the first several survey questions so that I can identify a winner. Please print “Global Vibrations contest” in the email's subject line. All contestants agree to allow free use of their comments in order to participate in the contest. 
Here is the link for the survey:
