St. Patrick’s Day Promotion

With a quarter of my heritage being Irish, I feel uniquely qualified to announce tomorrow’s St. Patrick’s Day promotion.

The rules are simple: The top (17) authors based on the highest number of qualified article submissions between midnight and midnight CDT on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) will each receive one of these fine limited-edition EzineArticles Leprechaun mugs which we’ll ship to any confirmed postal address around the world. We’ll announce the (17) winners by Noon CDT on Wednesday, March 18th.

So it’s time to get your blarney on and submit those articles – maybe you’ll have the luck of the Irish!

Isn’t the recognition and admiration of your EzineArticles peers, not to mention this really cool limited-edition mug, worth MORE than any ol’ bucket o’ gold? ;-)

God I hate Saint Paddy’s Day, the hangovers are just not worth it

Should be renamed to Saint Alcohol’s Day

Yeah. But I already have a mug. Drinking from it right now.

Throw in a DVD of the movie “The Leprechaun” and you’ve got a deal! (love that movie)

Hi, I think the Mugs are a nice gesture.
Mi name is Ana and I am the one in charge of submitting my husband’s articles (Steve Gillman). Today I will submit many of them hoping I can get that mug because St. Patrick’s Day is my birthday too.

Being 1/2 Irish, I could use “half” a mug. and being 1/2 German, I could use “half” of a beer stein. But how do you drink beer from a coffee cup? or drink coffee from a beer stein? Let’s see here, Green St. Arbucks coffee! or a Green bran muffin? (let it sit out long enough and it will turn green on it’s own! Happy St. Paddy’s to all and may our blessed father of lights bless your socks off, and the rest o’ ya too.

I won`t be anywhere near the number required, but a nice touch for those who will be able to reach the number required & win the mugs.

I sent one in just after midnight and was refused! I would have been writing all night had I known and been allowed to participate.

Not sour grapes, just a point of fact.

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I was on a roll…but apparently there is the max that can be submitted if you’re a newbie! Darn, I had many more to submit.

I’ll personally review the numbers – if you missed a mug by one submission, I’ll send you the the “Honorable Mention” 18th mug. =)


It appears you submitted all 10 articles of your Basic Membership. Somebody on our editorial staff is reviewing to see if we can help you out.

We should have included that stipulation in the rules. My apologies.

Thanks for your hard work! I’m sure we can find an extra mug around here somewhere… =)
