This is the first of four contests I’m operating to thank my readers for sticking around these past 18 months. But in order to win, you need to help me find ways to make sure I still have something useful to offer for the next 18 months!
Anyone can enter this contest, and the winner will be selected randomly. But in order to enter, you must provide some request or piece of advice that I can use to improve the blog. This could be new information, a better way of presenting existing information, or a new direction for the kinds of content I focus on.
I’m specifically looking here for long-term “resources” of the sort you would bookmark for future use or even print out and put on a wall. For example, a lot of people link from FlyerTalk to my instructions on ITA, or they comment on my tables that compare elite status with the major hotels and airlines. I’ve always tried to share the best credit card offers — including many that don’t offer any affiliate commissions — but I recently started using tabs to change the way they’re presented and make it easier to explore offers. Others have suggested creating a wiki, which seems complicated to host, but I could certainly look at options like Google Docs to make it easier to let you contribute to a larger project.
Make your suggestion in the comments before 11:59 PM on Thursday, August 1. You may make as many suggestions as you like in as many comments as you like, but each comment counts for only one entry. The winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card and a copy of The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau.
