Maybe fall brings out the competitive spirit in DIYers.
I’ve gotten two invitations in as many days to enter DIY contests. And, I’m waiting for One Project Closer’s just-ended Before and After ’09 competition to move to the next level. (I’ll be a contender in the latter. And, I’ll be asking for your vote.)
I guess I’ll also be a contender in the other two as well. The first invite came yesterday from OldHouseWeb.com (not to be confused with This Old House’s Web site which, I admittedly did at first). They’re giving away a $250 Lowe’s card and the chance to be a paid contributor on their site. What dedicated DIYer could pass that up? Not me! They’re looking for the best blog via a single project entry. You can get other details on the competition here.
The second invitation came today from Repair-Home.com. You can enter a project (or several if you want) in 17 different categories. A $100 prize will go out in each category with each category winner then competing for a $1,000 grand prize. Sound intriguing? Check it out here.
Are the crisp fall air and changing colors churning your Type-A juices? Guess I’ll see you at the starting line…
