Countdown to 1000th visit...

In gratitude to all who have taken the time to visit the site, I have decided to offer the 1000th visitor (since June 3rd) a "spirit of aloha" package from the islands containing the following:
  • One 7 oz. bag of Hawaiian gourmet Kona coffee
  • One box chocolate covered macadamia nuts
  • One box of 16 green tea bags
  • One Hawaiian music CD
  • One Hawaiian Hurricane popcorn
I estimate this "milestone" will be reached within seven to ten days.
(Stat counts were started on June 3rd, 2006)

To quote my friend Lisa, "countdown is on!" =D

I should mention, this concept is not new - check out Mae's blog of Jersey, Channel Islands:
Other bloggers weekly postcard/post-link contests (missing one? let me know):
  1. Mark of Saint Maxime, France
  2. Natalie of SoCal
  3. Jenny of Sharon, Connecticut
  4. Karine of Buenos Aires - thanks to mark ;)
Mahalo nui loa!

Is it cheating if I just keep commenting over and over again until I hit the 1000 mark? =)

I was wondering the same as Natalie ;). I wonder how Hurricane popcorn tastes like...

Actually, the commenting does not impact the count because counts are based on another method =)

As for the Hurricane Popcorn, I only came upon this when a friend told me about it as I was sending a box to a friend in Sweden - so, I've never tried it, perhaps I can ask my friend.

Aloha, You have a good idea for getting folks to post. And you have a very nice blog to post to. Annie

Hi Elaine and Annie - this response may answer both your questions at the same time - the way to win is not to try to win is the best way I can explain it - in fact, I debated whether I should mention anything at all, since my hope is that you will only feel compelled to post as you would because you simply liked the pic worthy enough to place a comment.

I'm doing this because I am suspending further posts for an indefinite period after the 1000th mark and would like to celebrate the joy I've had in doing this by sending the "gift of aloha" to some person who would accept it.

The amount of comments people write will have absolutely no effect on how fast or slow that 1000th mark is reached....the count is being done in another manner.

I post pics not for the comments, but for the enjoyment and sunshine it may bring to others on a gloomy day. =D

Hope that explains it =)

I think I've seen the Hawaiian popcorn and it may have seaweed in it (no joke)! Even so, sounds like a very nice prize. I love all these contests!
