I just filled out a questionnaire at work and found that I am very internally motivated and like being in control. What I am not motivated by is stuff- mugs, t-shirts, etc…
Some time ago A Beader's Blog posted on a related topic and she mentioned giveaways. Again, I am not really motivated by stuff, including beady prizes.
Having said all that, Nicole Hanna is having a contest and as much as I like the prize it is not what is motivating me to link to her post. The first time I read Nicole’s blog it went into my RSS feed. She does beautiful work, but even more than that she is a pleasure to read. She makes me smile and sometimes even laugh. She writes these great tutorials should you ever dream about learning to twist wire into amazing shapes. She even wrote one of the best posts I have ever read about pricing our products.
So, Nicole is having a contest to get new followers. If you visit her blog and decide to become a follower please mention that I sent you. As it turns out, one of the other things that I am motivated by is competition.
Even if I don’t win, I think you will really enjoy her blog.
P.S. I am not all that competitive, I would love it if you would join me in recommending Nicole's blog.
