As it turned out, the $2,500 Blogging Contest was a scam, so I am now entering the $100 contest at Contest Blogger. This contest is open only for bloggers who were ‘fooled’ by the contest he was promoting on his blog.
Many webmasters have already started removing links from their contest entries, and Phil has listed all the websites trackbacks on his blog so people get to know about the new contest.
I came to know of the new contest by the traffic / referrals in my web stats from his blog, and then found the trackbacks when I logged into my WordPress Admin Panel.
The deadline for this new contest is September 7, so make sure you follow the instructions to win 100 bucks.
