Introducing Damn Good Lists And A $1025 Contest
By on November 19th, 2008

Over the past few weeks I have been pretty busy doing lots of things behind the hood, that is one reason you are seeing lesser posts as compared to earlier. Behind the hoods I have been working on several things which you will know about in the coming few months.

However I wanted to take the time off and introduce one of my pet projects which is pretty exciting and has definitely taken a lot of my free time. The project is called Damn Good Lists, which is a blog dedicated to lists and only lists, it aims to provide you with the hottest, wackiest, weirdest and you name it lists on the web in one place.

I know you may have several questions, so here are answers to few I think you may want to know.

Why Damn Good Lists?

Over time, we have created several which have been hugely popular amongst readers, but the lists we could create were by and far limited to technology, and I needed to explore other topics which were interesting, thus came the birth of the idea to create Damn Good Lists.

Damn Good Lists will give me a chance to explore several topics which I could not write about on Techie Buzz and giving my knack of creating lists, I was always on the lookout to create a dedicated blog for it.

What is Damn Good Lists Going to Give Us Readers? How Can We Help?

Like Techie Buzz, Damn Good Lists will bring you the best content you can find, in addition to that you will be introduced to several interesting things that you may have never known or seen. You can be assured of a array of exciting content and lists that will floor you.

As a reader you can help by subscribing to the Damn Good Lists Feed and visiting and socializing the content with your friends, you as a reader can help Damn Good Lists grow into a Damn Good place to be in.

What Is The $1025 Contest?

Since I am launching a new idea I would like to announce a grand contest featuring prizes worth $1025, that will be given away. Here is a breakup of the prizes that will be given out to 3 lucky winners.

    Oh Man, the thing which you are upto is near to awesomeness. It’s not that easy to compile something every couple of days.

    Excited about the $1025 prizes.

    And I suggest you to not break up the posts into so many pages. (Just my opinion).

  • http://aravindjose.com/blog/ Aravind Jose T.

    I hope it’s okay, If i make it a general post saying about the lists, rather than dedicated one for damngoodlists.

    Won’t I be eligible for the contest ?
