Thanks to a cooperation with Simo blog the software house provides 20 licenses of Scribe 2011 (the cost of a single license is 99.99$)!
How to obtain them?
I made a contest you can join to win the licenses if you are lucky.
WHO CAN JOIN:
anyone that has a blog, a Twitter account or a Facebook account
the contest will run until 31 October
HOW TO JOIN:
– who has a blog/site can write an article with link to this review/contest and at least the words “Simo blog” and “Xiosis Scribe”
– who has a Twitter account can tweet this article
– who has a public Facebook profile can like this article
Finally leave a comment with your data (valid e-mail address) reporting the link of the post on your blog/site, or the tweet address or your Facebook profile address to verify the share (your accounts addresses / e-mail address / blog-site address will not be used for any other purpose).
I remember that the comment must be unique for who has a blog + associated Facebook profile and/or associated Twitter account, you just must use only one of these “channels”.
New Facebook/Twitter accounts (<500 tweets, <50 followers) just created for partecipate to the contest will not be considered.
The winners will be randomly extracted at the end of the contest (names will be associated to progressive numbers then extracted via Random.org) and will be contacted by e-mail obtaining the license.
At the end of the contest if the number of licenses available are more than winners they will be automatically assigned with the extraction.
So good luck!
