“Round and round it goes, where it stops, nobody knows!”

When people create a blog, they want people to read it. One way to entice people to subscribe to your blog is to have a contest. How you usually get entries is by: 1) subscribing to their RSS feed, 2) posting a blog entry about their contest on your blog, and then 3) go back to their blog, posting a comment linking back to your blog as proof of entry. Got all that?!

Marketing Pilgrim is holding such a contest. You can win an iPod Touch.

Blog contests and sweepstakes are the fastest growing subset of the online method of entry. I have yet to win a prize from one of these promotions, but I have just started. What do you think about blog contests vs. other methods of entry (in-person, phone-in, mail-in, form-based online sweepstakes, text messaging)? Have you won a prize from a blog contest?
