The Contest Has Ended!

What better way to kick off Cyber Monday than by hosting a Kindle Fire giveaway contest and this is what a few lucky readers will win by entering.  Here at DragonBlogger.com I teamed up with some great sponsors to giveaway Kindle Fires to a few readers and I will make sure it arrives before Christmas if you win the contest.

The Kindle Fire which just released less than 2 weeks ago is one of the hottest holiday items and at a price point of $199 makes it the best bang for the buck tablet in existence.  With over 16,000 apps including over 6k free apps plus combining with Amazon Prime for video on demand and eBook rentals you have a versatile tablet that will change your daily life.

I have been testing the Kindle Fire for about two weeks now and have done everything from installing apps, transferring music/media via USB, moving between cloud/local devices, renting books with Amazon Prime and much more. In addition to the Kindle Fire I will be giving away to 2 readers, I am also giving away a copy of uRex DVD Ripper Platinum for free which you can use to rip any DVD and convert it to Kindle Fire compatible video. This software will make it easy to burn one of your own personal movies to your Kindle Fire for the long road trips or air travel!

Who wants to win a Kindle Fire, share if you will keep it or give it as a gift to someone.  Ask any questions about the Kindle Fire or contest too, I have both a Kindle Fire and an iPad 2 so I can directly answer questions if you want to compare the devices though you shouldn’t as they aren’t in the same class.

Tips for increasing your odds of Winning the contest:

This contest is open to any reader in the U.S. and Canada, and though the contest is a random drawing for two winners you can increase your odds if you notice how many points you get for each entry type. This contest gives a slight edge to a blogger who can do a blog post about the contest and gain an instant 10 entries, but you can retweet the article every day for an entry each day. All in all, if you retweet every day and do everything in the contest you can gain up to 36 entries total. This greatly increases your odds of winning, so I encourage you to do a blog post if you run your own blog, or guest post somewhere about the contest and get the credit!

-Dragon Blogger

Update:  I added a new Contest Entry method, you now can create and upload a video talking about the Kindle Fire Giveaway and if you link to the contest in your YouTube description and use the word “Kindle Fire” in your Video title somewhere you will get +10 entries toward the contest.  Don’t forget to leave the URL of your YouTube video in extra info when you mark “I Did This” on the Rafflecopter.

    Nice one Justin! This is so awesome. I’m really happy to be part of this! I’m publishing this to the front page of blog engage now! I hope we get a lot of people joining this! I will also share it on facebook.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @bbrian017 Thanks Brian for being such an awesome sponsor and for all the support.

      • bbrian017

        @Dragon Blogger you know it buddy, and I even got my writers writing about it and I should have a published article on our community blog by tomorrow!

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @bbrian017 Sounds good, looks like it is taking off, not a bad start for the first 9 hours.

  • http://dool.in/ doolin

    Looks good Justin. Rafflecopter’s widgets are interesting (I signed up a few days ago). Will be fun to see how it plays out.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @doolin Love Rafflecopter, easiest way to track contest entries and this is my 4th contest using the service.

  • http://youtube.com/evelynprather Evelyn Parham

    Hi Justin,

    Awesome giveaway! I like the Rafflecopter’s widget. Very interesting! Best wishes everyone!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Evelyn Parham Thanks, really glad you joined in.

  • ScottPellegren

    Best Holiday giveaway I’ve seen so far, thanks Justin!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @ScottPellegren Thanks Scott, it was made possible by my awesome sponsors. I love that I can give some cool gadgets away to readers.

  • http://www.savagenomads.net/ benwaynet

    I think the only tablet hotter than the kindle fire is the Asus Transformer 2

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @benwaynet Asus Transformer 2 is a better tablet as far as hardware, but Kindle Fire OS even on older Gingerbread is so much more user friendly and is the most user friendly tablet OS next to the iOS from what I have seen. It has some limitations, but it is really easy to use for young kids and older grandparents. Also, the android marketplace is a mess, the Amazon android marketplace though has fewer apps none of the junk is there like the other marketplaces.

      • http://www.savagenomads.net/ benwaynet

        @Dragon Blogger Guess I’ll just need to win this contest to find out :)

      • blm03

        @Dragon Blogger@benwaynet Good to know. I’ve been looking at the Transformer myself but just don’t have the money for it.

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @blm03@benwaynet Honestly, if you have the $500 to spend on a tablet, get the iPad 2… Nothing compares. If you only have $200 to spend then the Kindle Fire hands down is the best. It beats most tablets in the $250 – $300 range too.

        • http://www.savagenomads.net/ benwaynet

          @Dragon Blogger@blm03 I’m trying to rid myself of Apple products. I’m trying to sell my Apple $200 gift card on craigslist.

          Maybe I’ll regret it but I want something new. iOS5 felt like a lot of the same. Plus I really despise itunes

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @benwaynet@blm03 I don’t use iTunes for Music, I use Spotify so I don’t feel the pain of iTunes on my iPad. It is however fine for finding games and apps. I will tell you that the Amazon Android store is AWESOME. You can simply browse Amazon store on your PC and purchase the app (even if free), then just press the sync button on your Kindle Fire and it will download. You also can download an android like client and even test the android apps/games on your PC before deciding to download to your Kindle Fire. Really love the Amazon Android app store.

        • http://www.savagenomads.net/ benwaynet

          @Dragon Blogger@blm03 Wonder if you can use the Amazon Andriod store on the Asus Transformer….hummm..

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @benwaynet@blm03 I don’t know, but I think you can. Because the android store lists apps that are not available for the Kindle Fire, this tells me any android device should be able to use the store.

  • http://techwalls.com/ Tuan

    What a great giveaway. I wish I could be a US resident to join the contest.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Tuan I was telling some other people that if you know someone in the U.S. who can accept the gift and mail it to you, I will allow you to enter. I just need a U.S. address to ship to.

  • Metallman

    Justin, for clarification purposes. Are Dragonbloggers or sponsors allowed to enter? I don’t see any mention of not being eligible. Thanks.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Metallman Because this is a random draw contest, it cannot have favoritism. I have therefore decided not to exclude dragonbloggers or even sponsors from entering.

      • Metallman

        @Dragon Blogger Whoo hoo! I’m pleasantly surprised. I’m in!

  • sunshinetricia

    I would so love to win this for my daughter for Christmas. I think this might be the year that we move from kids toys to tween electronics!!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @sunshinetricia I bought 2 of them for my kids and 1 for my grandmother in-law. So I actually bought 5 Kindle Fires in the last 2 weeks, 2 were for this contest. I am doing an AWESOME article later this week on how to setup a Kindle Fire for a younger kid and get around the instant 1 click payment and no way to password protect app purchases.

      • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

        @sunshinetricia That should say mother in law, my kids grandmother.

  • JenniferMathews

    Nice contest – thanks so much! :)

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @JenniferMathews Thanks for entering the contest.

  • ChristineSenter

    Killer contest, Justin. And the fact that you’re giving out two of them is even more awesome. The generosity of some people just goes beyond mere words. Someone’s going to have a VERY Merry Christmas this year. :)

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @ChristineSenter I am so excited, after buying 5 of them and setting up 3 with various apps, games, movies, mp3’s I have learned so much on how to maximize it’s potential over the past 2 weeks. Really is a great gift.

  • http://techdraginfo.blogpsot.com/ shenoyjoseph

      Glad you enjoy the contest, keep getting entries everyday to increase your chances to win.

  • VanessaB

    I would love to win a Kindle for one of my kids so I would only have to buy one for the other. I’m not as blessed as you, I would love both of my kids to have a Kindle Fire, but I can only afford to buy one.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @VanessaB The reason why I took up blogging part time 3 years ago is to make a little side money to cover some of these things. I can honestly say that my blogging covered my Mother in Law’s Kindle Fire, and the Amazon Affiliate income I earned in October/November was enough to cover one of my Kid’s Kindle Fire’s. I wish you luck to win one.

  • Julie2884

    Thanks for the chance to win – looking forward to the winners being announced!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

  • http://itsmomtime.blogspot.com/ Tabathia B

    Thanks for the great giveaway. Trying to win one for my kids. This seems to be a great tablet for the price

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      You know I have seen a lot of people say they want to win one for their kids, even though many high profile sites including one previous article here on some of the issues with the Kindle Fire being for younger kids. I have a work around coming soon however.

      @TheSunshyn AOTS? What site is that acronym?

      • TheSunshyn

        @Dragon Blogger Not a site. Its Attack of the Show – a TV show on G4TV. I’d had it on in the background when I ran across Metallman’s post about your giveaway so I figured it must be fate. ;-)

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @TheSunshyn Ok, I had heard of Attack of the Show, just haven’t seen it.

      • SuperBlogga

        @Dragon Blogger Do you know how to grab the URL from Twitter. I use to before they changed over to new format and now new tweets am not sure how to grab. On older tweets I do, but not new ones. Let me know?

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @SuperBlogga Yeah at the very bottom of a tweet you will see a time like “8 min ago” or “now” and click on this will take you to the Tweet URL. You don’t have to post the Tweet URL for this contest however, Rafflecopter tracks automatically the moment you click to Tweet and keeps track of it.

      @joetech Thanks Joe, should be a fun contest. I have seen all sorts of benefits in just the first 24 hours and will also do a follow up post on the benefits of such contests.

      • joetech

        @Dragon Blogger Yeah… Too bad I didn’t sponsor this time around. With RaffleCopter, I may have to do another contest like this one I ran a couple years ago: http://www.joetech.com/new-media-super-contest-winners/ Managing all those entries was a nightmare when I had to do it manually.

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @joetech Yeah, Rafflecopter rocks and I saw one contest that had 266,000 entries tracked with Rafflecopter. Imagine if you had to track all those manually. That contest you ran was incredible and so many prizes…amazing.

  • http://getbusylivingblog.com/ Bennyhsu

    Been wanting a Kindle, but have been waiting to see how the Fire is. I’m liking what I see and would love to win one!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Bennyhsu It is fantastic, I setup and configured 3 of them with 3 different Amazon accounts over past 7 days. I can tell you just about anything you want to know about it.

      • http://getbusylivingblog.com/ Bennyhsu

        @Dragon Blogger How it is when reading books on it? That’s what I want to know.

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @Bennyhsu Pretty good, the screen is sharp. However because it is a screen and not e-ink it has the same glare issue in bright light as the iPad, the regular Kindle is designed to read like a book in bright light. The Kindle Fire however has a bright screen and easy to read in dimmer light (indoors). I think it’s harder to read if you are at the park in sunlight but shade is fine. I didn’t have any eye strain reading a PDF for about 30 minutes, and I was able to read Word Doc’s with ease as well.

        • http://getbusylivingblog.com/ Bennyhsu

          @Dragon Blogger Thanks for the reply. I like the size of it as well. I held it at Target and it felt good in my hands.

    Yep, this is a great contest, over 530 entries already so far and contest is less than 48 hours old.

  • WagTheFox

    I gotta say that the Kindle Fire becomes a little more tempting the more I read about it, despite whatever shortcomings it might have.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @WagTheFox I think it servers as a perfect way to replace paper, no more paperback, hardcover books, physical magazine/newspaper subscriptions. Having 1 or 2 of these in a household is green friendly!

      • WagTheFox

        @Dragon Blogger True enough. My Kindle Basic is surprisingly addictive and I’ve gotten used to it in record time. Still enjoy the feel on an actual book in my hands too, though.

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @WagTheFox I hear that, I use my iPad 2 for reading CNN, Google News, BBC News…etc. But I still get Maximum PC, PC Gamer, PC World magazines physically. I like physical pages for some reason, I think our generation will be the last that feels they need to feel paper. All kids born in last 2 years probably will be completely used to tablets and not have that love of physical pages as much. It is hard wired in us adults.

    Thank You so much for a great chance at winning the Kindle Fire. I have a 16 year old who loves to read and we are looking at getting him one and if I could win it that would be amazing and help the bank some. Thank You again.

      • EisleyJacobs

        @Dragon Blogger@EisleyJacobs We should get extra points for having already followed you and being a reader BEFORE the contest… ROTFL. Only kidding… sorta ;)

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @EisleyJacobs But YouTube video and blog post are worth 10 entries each and that is 20 entries if you do both.

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @EisleyJacobs But YouTube video and blog post are worth 10 entries each and that is 20 entries if you do both.

        • EisleyJacobs

          @Dragon Blogger Yes… this is true. However, what if we did a vlog… does that STILL count for 20? ;) Dang, that means I have to put the manuscript away and take a shower. Argh ;)

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @EisleyJacobs It would be 20, yes since you did a video and a blog post. As long as the video is hosted online somewhere and publicly findable. YouTube, Vimeo…etc I will still give the +10 entries.

      • http://www.facebook.com/HowManyPlacesCanWeConnect sallykwitt

        @Dragon Blogger I think that I did. I wasn’t sure about those instructions, and thought that it meant to post them here. Thanks for checking.

  • entangledinu

    I hope that I win!! I really want one of these! <3

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @entangledinu Good luck, it is a great 7″ tablet.

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

    I found the Kindle Fire can run Flash in the Silk Browser, I was able to successfully play Plants Vs. Zombies on the Popcap Games website from Kindle Fire, you can’t do this from iPad.

  • 3littlebirdsstitchco

    Would love to win this for my son. I’ve been waffling back and forth between the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @3littlebirdsstitchco I haven’t tested the Nook tablet so I honestly can’t compare. I can tell you that Barnes and Nobles has no chance of building an app store as massive as Amazon, the company is just in a much better position to offer things to Kindle Fire subscribers.

      • 3littlebirdsstitchco

        @Dragon Blogger@3littlebirdsstitchco Thanks for the reply. I’ve read a lot about both of them and can’t find a clear winner. I’m really trying to figure out which is best for a 9 year old.

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @3littlebirdsstitchco If It helps, we bought the Kindle Fire for my 5 year old and 8 year old this Xmas. I preloaded about 20 games, 1 movie, 20 songs on each for them so they can have fun with it as soon as they open.

        • 3littlebirdsstitchco

          @Dragon Blogger That’s a great idea! Because there’s nothing worse on Christmas morning than not being able to play with the presents right away! Any game suggestions for the big kids?

        • EisleyJacobs

          @3littlebirdsstitchco@Dragon Blogger Angry Birds… :) A must have… PERIOD!

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @3littlebirdsstitchco What type of games your kids like strategy, role playing, action, shooters? Let me know the type of games they like and I will give you suggestions. I also did an article on how to find all the free apps on the Amazon Android Store > http://www.dragonblogger.com/finding-free-android-apps-kindle-fire/ easy way to filter just all free games.

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @EisleyJacobs@3littlebirdsstitchco Yep, my 5yo loves Angry Birds.

        • 3littlebirdsstitchco

          @Dragon Blogger@EisleyJacobs He loves Angry Birds! He plays it on the computer now though. We don’t do a lot of video games so I’m not sure what would be his favorites, He loves all of the Lego games for the Wii and that’s about as deep as we’ve gotten into the video game world. I, of course, would like some more educational games.

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @3littlebirdsstitchco@EisleyJacobs Speed Anatomy is a great free educational science game, ASL Spelling Game – My Smart Hands is another great game to learn sign language.

  • yarby50

    What a terrific entry for a blog contest. Very sharp and highly productive I would guess.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @yarby50 Yes, this contest is doing well. Just 5 days old and almost 1,000 entries so far.

      • yarby50

        @Dragon Blogger@yarby50 I’m very happy for your great response Dragon Blogger. Me, not so much!

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

    Those interested in a Kindle Fire for their kids, I just finished this article > http://www.dragonblogger.com/setup-kindle-fire-kids/ it is the best way I found to give your kids a Kindle Fire yet prevent them from purchasing against your 1-click credit card on file.

    I made a blog post http://restlessbear.tumblr.com/post/13674303146/great-giveaway

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Brad TBear Marshall Did you put the link in Rafflecopter when you clicked “I Did This” that is how the URL is tracked.

      • Brad TBear Marshall

        @Dragon Blogger no I didn’t. The instructions made it sound like I needed to put the link in these comments not that. Is there anyway to fix that so I can get my entries?

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Brad TBear Marshall No problem, I exported the rafflecopter entries and added it manually to the output so I don’t forget. Rafflecopter recorded it, but I wanted a list of all URL’s so that I can send to Sponsors showing them who all wrote blog posts. I am going to fix the instructions a bit too.

      • Brad TBear Marshall

        @Dragon Blogger thanks a bunch!

        • Brad TBear Marshall

          @Dragon Blogger The instructions are a lot easier to understand now

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @MargeNewton3390 I have 5 in my house right now, 2 unopened which I am shipping to the winners of this contest. The other 3 I ran various experiments on and are gifts for family members.

    ,

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Yogizilla Yeah, flash is a bit slow on some websites, but I found it playable, especially for the simplistic games you find on Popcap.

  • http://ibootlogos.zxq.net/ Drew Collins

    Hope I win :) I’ve wanted a non-Apple product for a while so I can compare

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      It isn’t a fair comparison to pit the Fire against the iPad 2, they aren’t in the same price class. But that being said, I was very impressed myself at how functional it is and valuable at 1/2 the price. You definitely get more than 1/2 of the features of the iPad at less than 1/2 the price.

      • Tiffanymichelle

        @Dragon Blogger Cool! Thanks!!!

  • Allan Hong

    I’m pretty excited. The thing that attracted me to this the most is the fact that I can use it for all the e-books that I already have. I wasn’t even aware until today that you can use ipads and nooks and kindles for that! hahah

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Allan Hong There is an iPad Kindle app that lets you read your books, but you can’t browse/add new ones from the iPad app have to do it from Amazon browser. With Kindle Fire you can browser, read books and with Prime you can rent 1 free book per month so it pays for itself.

  • TriciaNightowlmama

    Would be cool to win. Not clear to me why I had to scroll down so far to comment, but it kept me from the rest of the entry possibilities….

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @MatchesMalone Yeah perhaps I should have put the widget closer to the comment area, in any case you can mark I Did This and then comment after :) As long as I see the comment and match it to a name it is fine. I will update the instructions to popup a window that will directly jump to comment box if possible.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @MatchesMalone Cool, I figured it out, now the instructions will have a quick link that opens a new window and jumps you right to comment box.

      @livingsimply69 Glad you enjoy the contest, good luck.

    If you would please read this, I know you and me both hate those corny comments that say “Please help me get a Kindle Fire for my Dad that is going into the army, and I want him to remember me by…” not trashing on people that have dad’s in the army or anything, I am just saying that I hate those comments that are just made up so you can win the Kindle Fire. The reason I said that is because I want you to know that I am not entering this conversation to get my hands on the Kindle Fire for my own use, but because I really want to get it for my mom. I know this may sound another one of those comments that are just made up, but trust me, it is not! I really want to get my mom a nice gift for all of the hard work she has put daily into making my life easier. She deserves it so much, that a simple comment can not explain. If you would be understanding enough to let me give this to her, it would show her that I REALLY do care. :)

    Thanks for just taking the time to read this.

      @SoSimplyScotty Scotty, thanks for entering the contest. I have heard many different stories from different people on why they want to win. Just wanted to remind everyone this contest is “random draw” Rafflecopter will automatically randomly select the winner based on number of entries. So pure probability has best chance of winning, more entries = better odds. I do appreciate everyone wanting to win one for their daughter, mother, son…etc. I have seen many people desperate to win a cool gift for a loved one and my heart goes out to them. All I can say is I am giving away 2 and hopefully the people who win were ones that really needed it most. Other than that I plan on giving another Kindle Fire or an iPad away in January so stay tuned for another contest next month if you don’t win this one.

      • SoSimplyScotty

        @Dragon Blogger@SoSimplyScotty Ok I now understand that it is a random draw. I really do appreciate the heart you give out to the people that really want it. It means a lot. I really love how this contest is organised! :) It was a lot of fun entering the contest. :) If I don’t win, I completely understand, and I will love to enter the next contest! :)

        Thanks for responding! :)

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @SoSimplyScotty There will be more contests, the amount of interest in this one just shows me I need to be giving more gadgets away.

        • SoSimplyScotty

          @Dragon Blogger@SoSimplyScotty I couldn’t agree with you anymore! :)

  • coriwestphal

    What an incredible giveaway! My kids have been dreaming of having something like this in our house. I’d love to add some kids books and maybe some math and reading games to make it even more useful!

    coriwestphal at msn dot com

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @coriwestphal There are some pretty cool math games and science games for the Kindle Fire, most of the educational apps are free or cost very little too.

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

    It is an awesome tablet, been using my kids for a few weeks preloading apps and testing. Ask if you have any questions.

    • MohsinZaib

      yes Dragon i agree with you its really good tablet. @Dragon Blogger

  • http://intheclotheset.com/ Jenina Marie

    Nice :)

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Jenina Marie Glad you like the contest.

  • DebbyM

    I would love to win one. Ihave been dreaming of having a Kindle since they came out, but money has been tight (who doesn’t know that feeling right?). My primary use would be for e-books…but can you tell me a little more about some of its other capabilities?

    Thanks again for the great giveaway! You will make a couple of peoples holidays VERY Merry and Bright!

    Debby in Virginia

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @DebbyM Okay, so the Kindle Fire is an all purpose Android tablet. There are over 16,000 apps in the Amazon App Store, and over 6,000 are free. Games like Angry Birds, but also more in depth games too. There is a good browser (Silk) which can hit almost any website just fine, it plays flash games like Popcap games too. You can read books, newspapers, comic books, game, there are note applications like evernote, task, calendar apps and you can stream movies and TV shows from Hulu+, Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand…etc. It really is an all purpose tablet, you can do pretty much anything you want on it. You would be surprised the number of apps available, just go to the Amazon App store and see what exists.

      • DebbyM

        @Dragon Blogger

        Thanks for the really nice summary. I have really tried to stay away from all of the apps and stuff…but I’m getting wayyyy to tempted. Hoping Santa (dragon blogger) is good to me this Christmas! =)

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @DebbyM Wishing you luck.

  • DonavinLuder

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @DonavinLuder How old are your kids that they are asking for a Kindle Fire for Xmas? My kids weren’t asking for one, they just use my iPad so much I knew to get them one of their own.

      • DonavinLuder

        @Dragon Blogger@DonavinLuder 9-10

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @DonavinLuder Yep my oldest is 8, great age for the Kindle Fire. Good luck.

  • DonavinLuder

    What an incredible giveaway! My kids have been dreaming of having something like this in our house.I would love to win one.I am in.This is my first participation in any contest/giveaway like this.Thanks for the entry.I have heard many different stories from different people on why they want to win.and know this is a random draw. and by now i have a 1 n 2456chances of winning but i would just want 1 kindle fire not 2. but thats if i did win and if i dont then good job to the one that did. thanks justin for this giveaway i am checking every day.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @DonavinLuder The more entries the better the odds, since if you get 50 entries, it brings your odds to 25:1 if you have 50 entries which is not that bad having a 1 in 25 chance of winning.

      • DonavinLuder

        @Dragon Blogger just like i said i dont need 2 if i win

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @DonavinLuder I noticed you marked down you wrote a blog post, but I don’t have a blog post URL recorded, send me the blog post URL so I can validate.

        • DonavinLuder

          @Dragon Blogger how do i find the url and we r commenting on the blog post

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @DonavinLuder No, you have to write your own blog post on your own blog. If you check “Write a Blog Post” for the 10 entries, you must write your own blog post on your own blog. WordPress.com, Blogger, Tumblr…etc Commenting on this post was only worth 2 entries.

  • NeerajSachdeva

    Just saw this on Twitter, count me in. Surprised I missed it till now!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      Thanks for joining the contest, remember to Tweet every day for more entries.

  • fergusonsarah

  • Dragonblogger

  • Yogizilla

    I’m such a silly newb.. Forgot to include the sponsor code at the end of my blog post. No worries – I needed to update it anyway! Thanks for the heads-up, Justin.. I know you must be a busy man these days!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Yogizilla yeah, pretty busy. Going to take hours to sort through all blog post entries and youtube video’s tomorrow night before I draw winner.

  • http://bizchickblogs.com/ Tia Peterson

    Cool contest, Justin. And I see that you’re using LiveFyre! Would love to know what you think about it and whether or not you have people emailing you saying they can’t leave comments. I do! Gets irritating after awhile! :)

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Tia Peterson I have been using Livefyre for about 3 months now, at first I did get about 2 readers saying they couldn’t leave comments but since I turned on guest commenting with Livefyre I have had 0 complaints about people leaving comments. The users who couldn’t leave comments, just tell them to sign into Twitter or Facebook first then comment and it works fine. I did all sorts of commenting tests from iPad, Blackberry, Chrome, Firefox, Opera, IE 9 and never had an issue whenever I did testing trying to recreate the user’s behavior.

      • http://bizchickblogs.com/ Tia Peterson

        @Dragon Blogger Aha! I had not turned on guest commenting, until I just read your comment. I have turned it on; we’ll see what happens!

        I keep getting the strangest ones – and honestly, sometimes it doesn’t even work for me (it seems to hate Firefox, or maybe Firefox hates it – for one of my computers). I haven’t been able to comment on the Blackberry but mine isn’t a touch screen, and I don’t know if perhaps the issue isn’t my blog and my particular theme anyway.

        Nice to see things are going so well over here!

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @Tia Peterson I have heard some complain about mobile devices but always worked fine from iPhone / iPad. I think it can do with how you signed up too and which way you try to sign in, sometimes the Twitter OATH process fails and not really Livefyre fault when it just blanks out. But I know they are still tweaking the plugin for mobile improvements too.

  • chendrix7217

    Thanks for this Awesome Giveaway, I donated my iPad to a child with Autism and boy I sure could use this!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @chendrix7217 What a great donation, good luck on winning.

  • ChristineHellewellJensen

    I would love a Kindle Fire!!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @ChristineHellewellJensen Good luck, tonight is it! I will announce winners tomorrow.

      • ChristineHellewellJensen

        Thanks for the good luck wishes! @Dragon Blogger @ChristineHellewellJensen

  • http://www.glimmernet.com/ mikefromolney

    Oh I sure hope you give it to the most deserving…me of course. I plan to use this device to change mankind for the better!

    By eliminating every Angry Bird I can find!

    Thanks

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @mikefromolney Thanks for joining, it is random draw so I can’t choose the winner based on how much they need it or want it. It is clear some people it would make their entire year and really help out so I am really hoping the luck is with them.

      • http://www.glimmernet.com/ mikefromolney

        @Dragon Blogger Yes I was joking of course!

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @mikefromolney I know that, I just say that in case other people read the top comments first or only so that they all know it is random draw. Fruit Slice is also on Kindle Fire and quite addicting, ironically my 5 year old prefers action type games. There are some RPG games for Kindle Fire too that my 8 year old would prefer.

    Hey! Dragon!

    First of all thanks for keeping this one of a kind Contest!

    hoping to win it,by luck not by telling you any excuse!

    lets hope that My luck shines this tym around atelas! :-)

    have entered almost 50 COntest in last 1 month but no prize as of yet!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      You was pretty luck as far as contests go last year, I won a Dell Laptop worth around $600 in 2010. Ironically it was a contest where you earn points by promoting so was able to leverage my network. I have only entered about 10 or so other Rafflecopter contests myself and haven’t been a winner of another Rafflecopter contest yet ironically.

      • http://113tidbits.com/ tonygreene113

        Well the only thing I’ve ever won from these giveaways was….was a pair of ladies stiletto heels a bathing cap and a woman’s body shaper…lol. Lesson learned..no more mommy blogger contests for me @Dragon Blogger

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @tonygreene113 I enter the mommy blogger ones only usually if there is a gift card or something worth winning for my wife.

  • Momofthreeunder

    really trying to win one of these for my hubs and Christmas (so I can steal it!), thanks!

  • EisleyJacobs

    I can’t find my original comment so I will just comment again! I finally did the blog/video = vlog! http://eisleyjacobs.com/misc/vlog-time-dragon-blogger-and-kindle-fire/ In order to enter it into the count officially I had to do the “manditory” entries again (Even tho I already follow you both) so I hope that doesn’t screw up the count or something ;)

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @EisleyJacobs Re-enter it in Rafflecopter with the URL, it should let you. If there are duplicate entries I will filter them. Yes, you can still get entries if you were already a follower, I realized this limitation when I made them mandatory so I had to enforce that you were already eligible. Many probably faced that same issue.

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @EisleyJacobs I just checked out your post, I need you to also include the sponsor html code in your post, without the sponsor code I can’t count the entry. Get the code here and just put the source code in your blog post (html cut/paste) http://cdn.dragonblogger.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/sponsorhtmlcode.txt

      • EisleyJacobs

        @Dragon Blogger Somehow I missed the code part… so it’s in there now! Woot! :)

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @EisleyJacobs You are good, entry officially validated.

  • EHildy

    Very cool! I wish you only the best!!! Oh, and I absolutely LOVE the pictures!!!

    ~Elizabeth

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @EHildy Thanks, unfortunately the Kindle Fire doesn’t do screenshots like the iPad built into the OS functionality, would have been a nice feature for Amazon to include as part of their OS. I requested an enhancement.

    • EisleyJacobs

      @EHildy Good luck Elizabeth!

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

    I still have 10 people who marked “wrote a blog post’ but left no URL for me to validate, emailed those people but entries will be removed if you mark something and I can’t validate.

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

    4 hours and 15 minutes left until contest ends.

    • chendrix7217

      @Dragon Blogger Your killing me!

    • chendrix7217

      @Dragon Blogger Your killing me!

    • EisleyJacobs

      @Dragon Blogger You are killing me too… Every time I get a LiveFyre email I jump! ;)

      • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

        @EisleyJacobs Part of the thing I like about LiveFyre is the real time engagement with readers. This contest was by far the largest living conversation I had on the blog with the most people at once.

        • EisleyJacobs

          @Dragon Blogger AS a blogger, I really like the LifeFyre thing! It really does bring the readers together. *I approve*

        • EisleyJacobs

          @Dragon Blogger In fact I liked it so much I installed it 30 seconds later ;)

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @EisleyJacobs Yeah, this is why I chose it about 3 months ago. I was very happy that I did, it took a little bit for some of my readers to get used to after being WordPress default commenting for 3 years. They added guest commenting feature a few weeks ago and that greatly helped.

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

    2 hours and 55 minutes left approx until contest ends. I will have to take some time to weed through the bogus entries and remove them before I let the random draw take. There were some bad entries already removed to save time. Again, if you did the “Blog Post” or YouTube video and you didn’t leave the URL to the blog post and YouTube you need to make sure you re-do the entry and leave the proper URL’s so I can validate. I already notified you by email if this applied, so if you didn’t get an email from me then your entry is good.

  • Arnold Staton

    Well I wish I had something witting and insightful to post, but I’m glad Eisley Jacobs shared this link. Because a Kindle would make a nice stocking stuffer for myself.

    • EisleyJacobs

      @Arnold Staton *waves at Arnie!!! Good luck!!!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @Arnold Staton This contest is only the beginning my friend, I intend to do far more contests here after the success of this one.

  • rsmc1

    I like that you tested before you give it away- I never like to buy these kinds of things when they first come out – i like to read reviews first

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @rsmc1 Yeah, it just turned out that I had bought 3 as gifts for my own family and I liked it so much I wanted to get 2 more to giveaway. If I didn’t like it, I would have chosen something else for this contest and it wouldn’t have been a Kindle Fire Giveaway.

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

    That’s it, it’s all over! The Kindle Fire Giveaway contest is ended! Will give final entry count after I weed out some bogus entries.

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

    Contest is over, working to remove bogus entries and select the 2 winners now. You will be notified by email if you win. Once winners are confirmed I will post publicly (some people may have entered and aren’t US/Canada so I won’t know if they are 100% eligible until I contact them)

    • http://113tidbits.com/ tonygreene113

      Wondering if the RC folks can look into making the bogus entries die a bit more y restricting via IP address…whaddya think, Justin? @Dragon Blogger

      • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

        @tonygreene113 In this case IP restrict won’t catch the bogus entries, since they don’t know if contest is national/international…etc. In my case bogus entries are people who marked “YouTube Video” and left no URL or way for me to validate, or wrote a blog post and no URL or means for me to validate. I had contacted everyone by email over last 2 days giving them a chance to correct. Nobody did it today so they had plenty of time to notice and fix and didn’t.

        • http://113tidbits.com/ tonygreene113

          This is why I wish there was a to keep a running tally of entries per giveaway. Anything could happen where a person could post the urls wrong and not know or confirm that the url was accepted. It just makes your work a lot more tedious by sifting through such issues @Dragon Blogger

        • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

          @tonygreene113 There is, the new version of Rafflecopter launched this week but after my contest was already started. In the new Rafflecopter you see how many entries you have. Even in this contest when I removed entries it showed them remove from the total, there were over 3,000 entries but it trimmed down to 2840 when I removed all bad entries. Remember removing 1 bogus blog URL dropped 10 entries, so 10 of them would have dropped 100 entries total.

  • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

    The two winners were selected by Rafflecopter and notified by email already. Once they confirm and I can validate they were eligible I will announce. If for any reason one should not be eligible, then I will draw a replacement winner.

  • http://113tidbits.com/ tonygreene113

    Well, it’s back to MMS and sifting through more giveaways to attempt to win something this year. It was fun Justin..keeping an eye on your feed for the upcoming events..Have a good one!!

    • http://www.dragonblogger.com/ Dragon Blogger

      @tonygreene113 I am already posting for sponsors for my next contest, thinking about an iPad 2 being my next big giveaway, but I might do 2 Barnes and Nook Tablets since I hear they are pretty good but I haven’t reviewed them. Ultimately, once I get sponsorship I will put it a vote to the readers to decide what I should giveaway next!
