As I promised you last week, upon revealing my newly formatted super-duper blog, you would also have the chance to win a fabulous prize. So here we are. You are officially immersed in the new format. You can post comments, read past posts by content area and share the posts on Facebook, Digg, LinkedIn, Twitter, and by email. If you like to comment on posts, you can signup to receive an RSS feed of all the comments that people make and basically, your reading pleasure should be enhanced. I hope you like it but as always, my door is open to constructive criticism. If you see ways that I can improve it or if something isn’t working right, just let me know so I can re-engineer it.
The Prize Inside
Not only can you win a prize but I’ve also included a prize inside this blog! If you click on the “Engineering Careers” link at the top of the page, you will be able to read about many of the different engineering disciplines. Bookmark pages that you like and tell your friends, students and colleagues. Over time, new disciplines and pictures will be added but we are off to a great start!
If you love books, you will really love the prize this week. My newest book, The Green Engineer: Engineering Careers to Save the Earth will be released in the beginning of May. The book is written for high school students and should be an excellent addition to any library, school or personal collection. In the publishing world, publishers distribute galley copies of each new book to sneezers (people that will tell everyone else about it and spread the information like a virus) and also to media that will review it. A galley copy is basically a rare and highly esteemed advance reading copy.
I’m offering three signed galley copies of The Green Engineer to three people that post three comments somewhere in this blogosphere. Each comment must be a minimum of five words. The winners will be chosen at random next week. If you win, you will be able to read this new book 4-6 weeks before anyone else can even hold it in their hands. If I get really famous one day, these signed galley copies could be worth a lot of money. You never know. Good luck!
Happy reading and have a great week!
