The winner of the Google Fridge is John Honeck

And the winner of the Google Fridge is…

John Honeck of JLH Design Blog.

Not only did he create two great posts about the Google Fridge, but as I was reviewing his blog for its’ win-worthiness, I noticed we have too many weird similarities:

  • We’re both from the Midwest (Me – Illinois, John – Minnesota)
  • We were both born in 1968
  • Both of our blogs reference beer (John, you should see my breweriana collection: 150 mirrors, 1,000 cans, 60 tap knobs, etc.)
  • His blog’s Articles section has crashed, causing a database error.
  • My comments have crashed, causing a database error.
  • His current blog post states his blog is worth $38k. We both have inflated senses of self-worth!

Three of the four judges voted John’s post the best. Congrats to John, and a HUGE thank you to all those who participated. I plan on compiling a “lessons learned” post later this week about my online marketing competition (OK, now we can call it linkbait!). Lots of great stats to come.

John, send me your mailing address, and I’ll ship it out this week, so it arrives in time for the Super Bowl, and once again, Congratulations!

Great contest, I appreciate you breaking it down like that. Really an awesome idea with the fridge…hmmm I’ve got a brand new Google mood light radio still in the box…

I didn’t have time this time, but I wanted a frig too. Great idea for getting value out of that little promo fridge!
