Popfly Mashup Contest

Having fun with the new Beta of Popfly yet?  In my post the other day I did not get a chance to mention the contest that the Central Region DPE is running for the “Best Mashup” in Popfly.  Creating a mashup in Popfly is simple, but how to enter the contest is kind of complex (It might take you longer to enter than it does to create your entry).  Here are the steps that you follow:

  1. Create your mashup in Popfly.  Make sure that you make it viewable to the public (put it on a web page in Popfly is the quickest way).
  2. Create a blog entry that links to your mashup.  Feel free to include screenshots and brag about how great your mashup is.
  3. Tag blog for Technorati with “PopflyHDC07” (http://www.technorati.com/tag/PopflyHDC07)
  4. Go to Jeff Brand’s entry on Popfly located here http://slickthought.net/post/Microsoft-Announces-Popfly-Beta-and-Mashup-and-Win-contest.aspx and leave a comment that links to your blog

What do you win and other contest rules

There are a couple of prizes up for grab including a Zune 2 (now with Podcast support!) and a Halo 3 edition XBOX 360.  You have to have your entry posted on Jeff’s blog by October 31st.  Jeff is in the Central time zone, so take that into account when you post your comment.  The contest winner will be announced on or about November 9th.

Good luck for those who chose to enter the contest.  Feel free to contact me if you want to bounce around some ideas (I don’t think they will let me enter the contest).  🙂
