The Do It With WordPress 1st Birthday Giveaway – Week 1

Win a prize from Do It With WordPress

On September 15th, 2010, Do It With WordPress was born and has been providing useful and practical WordPress tutorials, tips, guides and plugins to hundreds of users. Since birth, Do It With WordPress has gone from strength to strength and I’ve been very happy with how well the site has done over the past year. I’ve made a lot of good friends and have learnt a lot from the incredible WordPress community. As a thank you to everyone who has been a part of Do It With WordPress in any way, shape or form in the past year, I’ve got together with a whole bunch of awesome plugin and theme developers to hold a huge giveaway with loads of great WordPress-related prizes, to be spread out over the next few weeks.

What can I win?

I have been greatly humbled by the generosity of the WordPress community. You never cease to amaze me. For most of these developers, they saw an email request for free stuff from a complete stranger and their response was a resounding ‘yes!’. So from me personally, thank you to every single person who contributed. If you agree, why don’t you go and pay them a visit and give them a kiss? If you can’t manage that, then the least you could do is leave them a kind word.

So, without further ado, here’s what’s up for grabs then:

All that amounts to $1800 worth of prizes. Wow. I love being Santa!!

This week’s prizes

This week, we’ve got the following goodies up for grabs:

Theme Junkie theme

Theme Junkie provides “easy-to-use, good-looking and powerful WordPress themes, with world class email and forum support to their clients at very low prices.” They even release some free themes. You can choose whichever theme you like from their library.

Pippity plugin

The winner of this prize will win the Pippity plugin which has been developed in response to the awful practice of overbearing and annoying popups, instead allowing you to have complete control over their appearance, with several presets aimed at making the job easier for you.

Themify theme

Out of the horse’s mouth: “Themify builds professional WordPress themes that are highly customisable and easy to use. Every theme comes with an option panel, a number of custom widgets and shortcodes to help you easily customise your theme without having to learn any coding.”

PremiumPress Coupon theme

PremiumPress specialises in providing themes for specialist applications. It currently offers three main themes (a shopping cart theme, a directory theme and a coupon theme) as well as more than 70 child themes.

$50 Envato Marketplace Credit

The Envato Marketplace is a hub of goodies for WordPress site owners, including themes and premium plugins. You can use the credit in any manner you wish across the different sites.

WPZoom theme

WPZoom has a good selection of themes, from the cleaner ones to the more involved ones, each one hand-crafted with a target audience in mind, so no matter who you’re trying to reach, there’s a theme for you.

      Actually, I was lucky enough to stumble upon this system called Rafflecopter ( which provides widgets for managing contests like this. They’re really cool. It’s still in private beta, but you can request an invite. I highly recommend it! Took a lot of stress out of the management of contests. Think I’ll be writing a blog post about them soon.
