Looking forward to it!

Win Another Envato T-Shirt!

Time to give away another T-shirt I think! All you have to do this time is, take a close look at the photo below…

If you look carefully there is someone photo-bombing the shot… a little head is sticking out behind my shoulder. All your have to do is tell me which Marketplace that author sells on. If you don’t know, guess! If anyone (who wasn’t at the event) can tell me the author’s name, I will also give away a bonus prize of an Envato pen with built in highlighter! No expense spared in this contest, huh? :) Cheap and cheerful, that’s how I roll! One entry per person and post your answer as follows:

Mystery Marketplace: ______
(optional) Mystery Author:
____

Good luck, you’ve got until midnight CST on Friday to enter! If anyone gets both answers correct, you immediately win! No-one at the event can enter so stop right there you cheaters! ;) If you only get the Marketplace correct and no-one guess the actual username of the mystery author, we’ll put your name into a random drawing to see who wins. :)

EDIT: Never mind, contest ended.

Hey Helen – thanks so much (that was quick!) would still of loved to of seen your session taped and put up on a youtube channel or something – maybe Envato, now they are more active at sponsoring events and talks etc they could make sure they are filmed and all placed in a central location (like a youtube or vimeo channel etc) I think this would be an awesome resource, something to kick back and watch, great for Envato to show they are involved with communities and the little extra added SEO from a channel of videos.

Again thanks so much Helen – some interesting facts and figures :)

Our time in Arizona is almost up, but fear not, we have one more exciting adventure later today that I will be reporting back on! Here are a few more photos from PressNomics which wrapped-up Friday including a shot of Helen on Thursday talking about “Insider Buying and Selling Trends from ThemeForest. You can find the slides to that presentation on Envato Notes by the way if you haven’t already seen it.

WordPress lovers take their seats!

I had a great chat with ThemeForest author Parallelus on Thursday evening and he gave lots of feedback and good ideas on what authors would like to get out of the Marketplaces. I think he’s representing what a lot of you have been asking for and I’m looking forward to talking more about those ideas internally at Envato. As Parallelus can attest to, I was developing a nasty cold by Thursday evening and sadly, I spent all of Friday by myself resting and trying to recover. I’m back on my feet today however but need you guys to lift my spirits.

3 More Envato T-Shirts Up for Grabs!

I have three more Envato T-shirts up for grabs for everyone following our adventures via this thread! To help get me back on my feet after feeling ill yesterday, I need some good jokes to cheer me up! The three best jokes that make me laugh the most will win a T-shirt. One joke/entry per person and you have until 5 p.m. CST on Monday October 21 to post your jokes. Please keep them clean. Good luck!

Hey Scott

Here’s my joke: Once there was an AJ author from Switzerland that wanted an Envato T-Shirt so bad that he was even posting one of his favorite jokes :D :

A traveler takes his first trip to Africa.

When he gets off the plane, the first thing he hears is drums. He took a taxi to the hotel. But the whole ride he heard just drumming from the taxi’s radio. So he asked the taxi driver: “Why is there just drumming everywhere?”. The taxi driver looked at him with wide open eyes, waved with his hands and said.” Uuuh, very bad when drumming stops!”.

He thinks, OK, this is Africa, there should be drums. He goes to a restaurant for dinner, but everywhere drums. He asked the waiter:”Why is there drums playing everywhere?”. The waiter looked at him with wide open eyes and said.” Uuuh, very bad when drumming stops!”.

After he paid, he went back to his hotel room, but he can’t get any sleep – the drums keep him up all night. Everywhere he goes, drums. He can’t think. It’s driving him crazy. Finally, in desperation, he goes to the hotel reception and asks the guy behind the desk:”Why is there drums everywhere, all the time?”.
The guy at the desk looked at him with wide open eyes and said.” Uuuh, very bad when drumming stops!”.

“But why, what’s the problem, I can’t even sleep at night! Why can’t they stop the drumming? What would happen that is so terrible?”

The guy at the desk with a terrified expression on his face took him closer and whispered in his ear: “Becoss aftha drum stops, bass solo will play!!”

:D

I hope you are not a bass player and this helps to get back on your legs again. Get well soon!
