As I posted yesterday, my new WordPress theme is now activated and the new design is live! And what's a better way to test the waters of the new design than to submit my blog to a design competition!
FresheVenture.com, an online entrepreneur blog by the lovely Keller Hawthorne, is hosting a WordPress Design 2009 Contest with excellent prices from both the sponsors and Keller herself.
Best WordPress Design 2009 Contest
The Best WordPress Design 2009 Contest is open for anyone with a WordPress blog, personal or tweaked theme and great way to promote your blog whether your brand new blogger or a seasoned veteran.
The best WordPress Design 2009 contest is for:
- WordPress Powered Blogs
- Both original themes and customized free or premium WP themes
You can even nominate your favorite (WordPress) blog and design, if you don't have a blog of your own!
The prices include such gems as
- Become a Blogger Premium membership,
- StudioPress All-Themes Package,
- OIOpublisher WordPress Ad Manager Plugin,
- free review from Fresheventure.com and not the least,
- free exposure for everyone entering, not just the winners..
For me, just entering the competition is a price in itself, getting the blog name out there in the blogosphere, so in a sense I've already won :)

Support Me & Zemalf.com
The submissions for the competition will last for this month, contest is open from August 1, 2009 to August 31, 2009 . When the submissions close, the voting begins which lasts for the September, and at the beginning of October we'll have the official results.
To be honest, I'm not entering the competition to win it, but for fun as I've never done anything like this. And it's a great chance to test the waters of my new design and get feedback what is working and what is not.
The voting begins on 1st of September 2009, but if you're itching to praise or flame me, you can do it right here, so speak your mind and leave a comment!
