@anand84, it sounds like a good idea, but like Planet13, I'm not sure I'm getting this right.
As for competitions, I've tried giving away stuff to readers in a hope somebody will spread the link via Twitter or FB. What I did get was "compers" (professional competition wh*res and greedy freebie hunter mutants) swarming my website and I ended up banning their IP addresses and keeping the prize myself :)
There are some other points, anand84, that make this competition thing difficult. Gathering hundreds of fellow blogger email addresses and getting them actually read your email and what's even less likely - respond to your email. But as a whole, I think I like the idea.
I don't see it working though (mind you, I might be wrong) because if we imagine 100 bloggers link to my discussion, after the prize is given away, there's one reasonably happy blogger and 99 very unhappy bloggers, LOL If I was amongst those 99, I'd simply remove the link for f***'s sake!
