Hello Neatoramanauts! I'm excited to announce a new game called the Neatorama Mini Hunt. It's a quicker version of online treasure hunts we often do on the blog. The inaugural game is hosted by 1000 Awesome Things, and nothing could be more appropriate, since I think all of you are awesome!
1000 Awesome Things is a blog started by a regular 30-year-old guy named Neil Pasricha. Back in 2008, Neil's life was falling apart: his best friend took his own life, his wife and him went their separate ways, he sold his house and moved into a tiny apartment.
To get his back life on track, Neil decided that he would write about one simple thing that brings him joy every day, starting with ... the broccoflower. Since then, he has written over 500 awesome things. Words soon spread, and Neil's blog got famous ... then he got a nifty (or dare I say, awesome) book deal.
Last month, The Book of Awesome was released. It became a #1 International
Bestseller soon afterwards ... and for good reasons: Neil's celebrations
of the simple pleasures of everyday living resonate with a lot of people.
I got an advance copy of the book and I can certainly tell you that it's
impossible not to feel better about
your day after reading it.
On to the game. We'll ask you a single question, the answer to which
makes a hidden URL on Neatorama:
What is color of the tupperware pictured on top in one of the first ten (#1000 to 991) Awesome Things posts? [one word] (hint: Check out the Top 1000)
To find the answer, visit Neil's blog and rummage around. Then type the answer into your browser bar in this format: http://www.neatorama.com/answer (where the answer is one word, all lower case) and leave a comment there.
Got that? Easy, right? We'll pick 6 random winners: 3 will win free autographed copies of The Book of Awesome and 3 will win stuff (any item $20 or under) from the NeatoShop. IMPORTANT: You need to write down what stuff you want from the NeatoShop, otherwise you forfeit the prize, mmkay? So head on over there and take a look around - may I suggest the New Stuff and the Hot Items)
Good luck!Edit: This contest has concluded.
