Optional Musical Interlude

Welcome back! Did you notice anything different? If you’re observant, you probably saw that many of the comments now have a little face next to them. These are called “gravatars” and they’re the latest edition to the EzineArticles blog.

A gravatar, or globally recognized avatar, is simply an image that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things. In essence, its a portable avatar.*

100 Articles in 100 Days Marathon Challenge

Explode Your Traffic, Prospects, Publicity & Profits… and get a FREE MUG!

We know a good idea when we see one; and this just might be one of those ideas. Although this isn’t an official EzineArticles program, we thought it warranted a little EzineArticles mug love.

Sign up for Jeff Herring’s 100 Articles in 100 Days Marathon Challenge (HAHD) and you could win a limited-edition #HAHD mug courtesy of EzineArticles.

You can find more here: You’ll get support and encouragement from a community of over 400 other members already enrolled in the challenge. Not only that, on the site you’ll find:

  • An Interactive Blog
  • A Listing of Events
  • A Place to Upload Your Videos
  • A Discussion Forum
  • Focus Groups
  • And Much More!

And the best part? EzineArticles will give one of these fine, limited-edition #HAHD mugs to everyone who completes Jeff’s challenge by submitting (100) articles on, or before, 11:59:59PM CDT Wednesday, July 1, 2009.

The idea for the challenge was born on Saturday morning March 21, 2009 while Jeff Herring, Felicia Slattery and Keith Goodrum were talking on Twitter. Keith suggested the name, and before they could barely blink the idea went viral on Twitter and just took off. However, the official start date is March 20, 2009.

So you need to get started right away with creating and submitting your articles. For them to count in the HAHD Marathon Challenge mug give-away promotion you will need to submit them to on or before July 1, 2009 – your “Traffic Independence Day”.

Let’s Go Shopping!

For some time we’ve been toying with the idea of making EzineArticles promotional items (aka: schwag, logo loot, tchotchke, etc.) available to all of our Expert Authors.

The one challenge we faced, however, was figuring out what items people would like. Would t-shirts be all the rage? Or would mugs be on the top of our Expert Authors’ wish lists? Or perhaps mouse pads would be the item of choice. Frankly we had no way of knowing.

We’re happy to report that we’ve come up with a solution: beta testing.

In true Internet fashion, we’ve created a fully-functional beta version of our EzineArticles Online Store. Your purchases at this store over the next few weeks will help us determine which items make it into our final product offering and which ones die a horrible death.

In essence we’re asking you, our Expert Authors, to tell us what you like best.

Plus for a limited time only, all items are available at cost. We’ve included absolutely no mark-up, so what we’d pay is what you pay!

So what are you waiting for? Check out the whole line-up of EzineArticles promotional items, purchase your favorite items and show the world that YOU are a proud EzineArticles Expert Author!
