I was chatting with a friend the other day about webby kind of stuff and we got on the topic of RSS subscriptions and how they change the website experience. Anyway (yes, there is a point to this), I was toying around with ideas of how to add value for subscribers. So I hacked up an existing WordPress plugin so that I could post stuff that would only show up in the RSS feed and the emails but wouldn’t be shown on the site. I haven’t had a good reason to test it out yet so I had to make one up.
So, here’s the deal: Sometime this week I’m going to append a poker trivia quiz to one of my posts that will only show up if you get the RSS feed or the email subscription. First person who emails me the correct answer to the trivia question will get a $30 Amazon or iTunes gift card.
After we have a winner I’ll post who won (you can use an alias if you’re too embarrassed to admit you read this site) and I’ll post the question and answer on the site.
If all goes well, I’ll try to hook up with a few sponsors who can fund prizes or give away their products (software, subscriptions, etc).
