One of the blogs that I read every few days about blogging is John Chow’s.  Over the last year or so he’s paired up with several of his sponsors to give prizes away and I’ve tried to win them by making posts here, see this search result.  Thus far, I have not.  His newest contest is pretty interesting and by making this post, I’m now entered.

John Chow is holding a new contest to give away $6,000 in CASH! $5,000 would go to the charity of your choice and $1,000 will go to you to spend however you want. If I win, I would give the $5K to the ASPCA and I would put the $1,000 into my Roth IRA.

The contest is being sponsored by is a tiny url service that will shorten long URLs, essential for sending links out on Twitter which limits the number of characters you can post per tweet. Sign up for an account and check it out!

That’s it, I’m entered.  Wish me and the ASPCA luck.
