I’m not going to “enter” this one but I try to support Gear Live Media anyway and will just up that support as much as possible. Although I always tell my friends about the site/s anyway, I will be sure to work on getting more links up (always lazy lol) and try to digg more stories. I mean, that is a very easy way for anyone to show support regardless of any contest.

So even if you don’t think you could win this (though, anyone can get lucky), take a couple minutes here and there and help show some support. I mean, making sure Gear Live grows is in your best interest anyway and one sure way to make sure there are better and more contest that you can win wink.

Wow, I was certainly surprised when I saw this article on my Live.com page earlier today, read it, and saw my name included. I’m really glad that you decided to hold this contest, and I really hope that it works well. Frankly, if this doesn’t work, then I don’t know what else to do. When I just visited the Gear Live main page, it said that I was the only member online and that the site currently has 335 visitors. If we can even get a small fraction of those visitors to become members and participate in the site (giving them at least one entry into this contest), then I can see this already-great site growing tremendously over the next month. I also really like your choice of prize. I actually never got around to reading your review of it, but when I saw the contest, I went and read the whole thing, and I must say that I was impressed both by the device and the review. Even though I alread have an iPod, I really want an iRiver Clix. I’ll be back later to post more. Keep up the good work.

Alright, a few hours ago I dugg every Gear Live or Bleeding Edge article that Andru has submitted to Digg. I had already dugg some of them in the past, so I hardly did all of them just now, but it was still a lot of digging. Andru - I had no idea that you submitted so many articles. Where did you find the time? I find it tedious just to submit one or two. Anyway, I did find my digging spree pretty fun. It brought back some great memories of certain articles and videos I saw a while back but just never got around to digging (why I don’t know). It also allowed me to catch up on a few really good items I somehow neglected in the past. I’ll also be posting links to Gear Live as well as articles on this contest in my blogs, but I’ll leave that for another day. Of course, I’ve had Gear Live on my list of Favorite Websites for some time now under the “Computer & Electronics” section.

hehe - very cool man. Don’t forget to hit up netscape as well. Oh, and here is a hint - you can see everything submitted across the Gear Live network on Digg under username glmedia. That name only Diggs our stuff.

And glad you liked the contest - after all, it was an answer to your plea wink

Admiral_Kirk was right, I have no idea how you submit that many digg stories.  Just a few minutes ago I got done digg all of your Digg stories and your Netscape stories.

That is kinda crazy because it’s mentioned everywhere on the web.  Digg.com is a website where people submit stories and people vote on the stories they like.  Stories that are dugg enough get on the front page.  All kinds of topics are included on the website such as Technology, Sports, Entertainment, etc.  You should really check it out.

Dbone -

Digg.com and Netscape.com are THE best way to help grow our readership. We submit stories to both so you don’t have to (for all our sites like Gear Live, Playfeed, TV Envy, Food Squeeze, End Score, etc.). If you add our usernames to your friends list on both servies, then you can just go and see what we have submitted, and Digg (on Digg) or Vote (on Netscape) for our stuff.

ANyone can cubmit links to the services, and they are put into a queue. When enough people vote or digg the story (depending on which site you are on) it is taken out of the queue and moved to the front page, where is gets MASSIVE attention.

As it says in the original post, it runs through August. The winner will be announced in September. If you submit a story to Digg that is promoted to the front page, that does count.
