Here's the official post wishing you a
Happy New Year!!
PS: Like the sketch/caricature? Read on to know how to get one for you! :D
2008 was a great year, but I'm guessing you've already seen/read a lot about "10 Best blah blah of 2008". (Or what to do this holiday @ Google Blog :D) And everyone's busy sending greeting messages (& I'm in a hurry too!), so I'll keep this short.
I wanted to do something for my blog readers, so I thought of having a small contest (Inspired by some popular Design Blogs!). But since I can't offer much, I decided to make use of the pen tablet I have for a few days and make a sketch/caricature (or whatever you like to call it :D) of
4 5 of my Blog Readers! (Like the one above!) All you have to do, is a leave a comment, about "Your 5 Goals for 2009".
4 5 lucky people will be decided as following:
- The First two people who leave a comment on this post.
TwoThree people selected at random (Yes i'll draw lots) from the rest of the people who comment.
Every person is counted only once :P and please leave a comment using your Gmail id so I can contact you for a reference pic (Or leave your email id.. though I prefer the former).
So well, the rules are simple. Leave a comment about "Your goals for 2009" before
6:00 PM, 2nd January 2009 3:00 PM, 4th January 2009 (Indian Standard Time) and you'll have a chance to get a nice (I'll try my best :D) sketch/caricature :)
And well, here are my 5 goals for 2009:
- Have a great time during Quark (Tech Fest) & Waves (Cultural Fest) at BITS Pilani, Goa Campus.
- Try and learn Designing (hopefully get the Creative Multimedia Course).
- Explore Silverlight (Heard it?) & C#.
- Sketch regularly (Once a week).
- Manage decent grades (Now that's a tough one!)
Tell me your 5 goals for 2009, and get a chance to have your own sketch as a New year gift! :D
Oh & don't forget to subscribe to my blog to recieve instant updates of my posts (I'll announce the results in the next post!)
PS: This is my first try at having a contest. If it goes well, I'll try and take out more time for such contests! :)
PPS: Oh & if you like the idea of the contest, let your own blog readers also know about this contest by linking to this post! ;)
Update: I'm leaving for Goa, so I decided to shift the deadline a little further (and as pointed in the comments, now I'll make 5 sketches). I felt like making the best use of the tablet till I have it :D
