Win an iPod Nano with CSS Mastery this Christmas | December 8, 2006

Christmas is well and truly on the way, and I’ve got a fantastic seasonal competition for all my readers.

As you know, tech books make wonderful presents for the whole family, from Grandma and Grandpa through to little Johnny. So why not get Santa to empty his sack for you this Crimbo and stuff a copy of CSS Mastery in a loved-ones stocking.

Simply write a post on your blog telling Santa why you, your friend or family member deserves a copy of CSS Mastery this Christmas. Title your post something sensible like “CSS Mastery iPod Giveaway” and link back to this post. Then add a link to your post in the comments here so we can find it again later.

The top 6 “letters to Santa” will win a copy of CSS Mastery for the person in their letter, and one lucky person will also win an 2GB iPod nano for themselves, courtesy of friends of ED.

Merry Christmas!

Too bad I already ordered the book for Christmas earlier today, but at least I will have a great book! =)

Of course, the moment some of my students saw me doing it, a few of them wanted to do so as well. I would post their links here, but told them they had to if they wanted to submit (you know the whole one entry per person theory)… I did however link them at the bottom of the letter I wrote.

Santa and me have made a deal. Woohaha.

Michael Bishop said on December 9, 2006 6:22 PM

Know that even if Santa doesn’t bring this book for Christmas, I’ll be obtaining a copy regardless.
But just in case he’s reading along, I wrote a letter, my first in a long time, and fun to do if nothing else.

Dear Santa,

Here is my letter to Santa Claus.

Happy holidays everyone and thanks Andy for even hosting a contest. =)

Jacob's mom said on December 20, 2006 12:07 AM

My son would like that iPod thing and book you’re talking about. He’s written about it on his “blog.” Whatever that is.

If you do get in touch with Jacob, please ask him to get a real job some time and to quick talking about San Francisco.

Hafiz said on December 20, 2006 9:52 AM

This is me again, I hope this can make it.. I don’t know why my blog’s url got blocked, so I make it a tinyurl..

Will be great to have something geeky to read over the festive period!

Scott Povlot said on December 21, 2006 2:25 AM

Well, let’s not forget those who celebrate Hanukkah! Just in case, I sent the letter to Santa and asked him to forward it to Hanukkah Harry. ;-)

Check out my entry
