Top Thinker Contest on Beyond the Rhetoric

Do you have something on your mind? Do you have some feedback to share? Then have you been participating in my Top Thinker (and Best Thought) Contest?

As you may recall, I launched this contest near the beginning of the month, encouraging visitors of this blog to leave comments to their heart’s delight. In return, I’m offering great prize packs to the person who leaves the most comments in February 2009 and to the person who leaves the “best” comment during the month as well. That’s two prize bundles, but you have the opportunity to win both. The total value of the two prize packs (read about them here) is about US$200. Not too shabby, I’d say.

So, how has the contest been progressing thus far? Let’s have a look at the leaderboard for top thinkers (the people who leave the most comments).


In most months leading up to this contest, Nick has always been the sole possessor of the top spot. Looking at this leaderboard, it looks like our friend Nick has himself some competition. Ray and Chris are actually beating Nick at this point, and Vik and Betshopboy are right in the running as well. It’s going to be a tight race to the end. Remember, it’s not too late to get involved. Use the comment form at the end of each post and voice your thoughts.

Even if you don’t think you’ll be able to leave the same quantity of comments as these guys, you can compete on the quality side for the Best Thought side of the contest. If you leave but a single comment on this blog this month, you have a chance to win. Just make sure that it’s insightful, interesting, funny, valuable, or otherwise entertaining.

Good luck for the rest of the month. I’m looking forward to what you guys have to say.
