Pimp Your Work

October 10th, 2007

Yay! A Pimp Your Work Contest!

I’ve only been posting at Pimp Your Work for a week, and I just thought I’d let everybody know what my plans are for world domination this blog. Plus, YOU need to tell me what you want. If you do, there will be prizes.

Anyway, here’s a list of the stuff I have planned for this blog.

  • Software tips in video - I’m especially planning an “Excel Tips” video series where I’ll walk you through some fun, fun things you can do with Excel. Of course, I’m also going to do the same for other programs as well.
  • Podcasts - I can’t imagine doing this often, but it’d be fun to do podcasts, especially for interviews of well-respected productivity gurus or developers of work pimp software.
  • Reader Work Pimps - I’ll be accepting work pimps and productivity strategies from readers and, if they’re okay, I’ll post them here. After all, we all have different approaches to productivity. Broadcasting your approach will do good and provide others with ideas.
  • Review of the Week - these will be reviews of tools, audiobooks, ebooks, or one of those old fashioned paperbacks. As long as they have anything to do with pimping one’s work, they’ll be featured. I can finally make more productive use of those resources I have lying around.
  • Pimp Your Work comics - cause doing this might be fun. Productivity humor is always good for releasing work-related tension. Laughter is the best work pimp. Also, I love making comics. But these won’t come out too often.

Here’s the contest: Please let me know what you think by leaving a comment. You can say “These ideas suck!” Really. I prefer that over silence. Comment on the type of content you want to see, the blog design - anything! As long as it’s for the improvement of Pimp Your Work.  I’ll pick a name at random, and you get to pick a prize from this delicious honeypot of prizes:

  • a copy of David Allen’s Getting Things Done in PDF format (a $15 value)
  • a copy of David Allen’s Getting Things Done in mp3 format (I forgot how much this cost, but Amazon says $26 and some odd cents)
  • two 250-word articles on any topic of your choice (written by me, a $30 value)
  • a simple, monochromatic or black and white business logo courtesy of Blue Rabbit Media (here’s the portfolio)
  • A PDF book on 101 Romantic Ideas. Hey, if you’ve got a significant other, this book has great tips on how to pimp your romantic gestures without breaking a sweat.

Rules: Only one chance to win per person, although you can leave as many comments as you like. Contest will run until October 15, Monday 12:00am (GMT +8 time). I’ll contact you via the email you leave on the comments form.

Thanks to Kelly, the overlord of the universe my editor, who let me run this contest.

Pimp Your Work faces the female invasion

Hi, I’m Celine Roque. You may remember me from such blog posts as “Top 5 Tips to becoming a productive student entrepreneur” and “How to win clients like a pro“. Or, you know, you may not know me at all. (I’m willing to bet it’s the latter.)

Don’t worry, Pimp Your Work wasn’t invaded by aliens, hackers, or a character from Springfield. It’s invaded by something much worse - a productivity-obsessed 24-year old workaholic in a far-flung third world country. (Can you say that really fast 5 times in a row?) From now on, I’ll be posting the pimpin’ blog entries that you’ll love to hate, hate to love, or simply ignore. But I warn you - ignoring future Pimp Your Work posts will be dangerous to your work’s health.
