I need a favor that will take you 2 minutes that could help me win a blogging contest. Could I ask you to do one of these two things?
1. Send an e-mail to 2 people that you know with the link to this post asking them to read this post and to do me a favor that will take 2 minutes (don’t forget to cut and past the URL).
2. Post a note on your favorite social media site (you can use the “share this button below if you want) asking your followers/friends/readers to read this post and to do me a favor that will take 2 minutes. This could include your blog, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or anywhere else that you might be able to get two people to read this post.
I win if I can get a lot of people to read this post, and your help getting two more people is greatly appreciated! I will follow up by appending this post and let you know how well I did.
