    Here is the Challenge!

    I will donate a 25.00 Kiva GC to the 1st blogger that matches the 25.00 GC and encourages their readers to join the MP KLT in their blog. The 2 25.00 (1 from me, 1 from you) GC's are meant to be prizes for your readers. How you choose the winners in your blog is entirely up to you. I suggest one of those fancy random number generators:D

    Bloggers 2-5 will also receive a 25.00 GC donated by Randy. Same rules as above apply.

    Bloggers need to send me a link to their blogs once they have posted about Kiva, the MP lending team, and Kiva GC giveaway.

    Start a convo with me once you have blogged and the 1st 5 bloggers in my inbox win! I'll be posting the winners here as soon as it happens.

    I love how this team come up with new ways to recruit members, and the Blogger Challenge could be a good way to get more people to join us! Great initiative, kellio! :D

    Agreed, good idea to move the thread. I'm planning to run a post about KIVA tomorrow. If anyone is interested, I would love a MP KIVA veteran to take a look at the post beforehand to make sure I got it right (just start a conversation today with me if you are willing). If not, no big deal, I'll do my best to accurately relay the info and how the process works. ;)

    Edit: Volunteer found. Thanks, Ryan!

    Is it a coincidence that Kellio's clever idea to roust the MP blogger community has resulted in a boost in MPKLT membership over the past week?

    No, it was a well thought out conspiracy, part of the team's plot for world domination by bankrupting us all. :p

    Indeed, it has been a big boost for our 1st anniversary. We're even on the Kiva leaderboard for most new members this month - 7th place I believe. thumbs-up.gif

    And thanks to you, FM and all other bloggers who have given the team a boost.
    This happened last year when Gary wrote us on View From the Wing, so hopefully it will become a regular occurrence with bloggers mentioning Kiva and the team every few months...............
