Gmail Invite for Grabs

I've been such a loyal Google products user (Gmail, blogger, Google Adsense, Google search) that they've given me another Gmail invite to give out. Who wants it?

Let's play a game... Click the comments link and tell me why you deserve the invite. Convince me ;-) . Send me your case. Make up something. If I'm convinced, I'll send you the invite. Deal?

To the ones who've requested for a Gmail invite in the past (John Mark, Clint), you'll have to join the game if you want the invite.

Anybody can join. Pinoys or foreigners. I don't have any criteria yet, so just be creative, okay? Poetry, top ten reasons, a photo, a webpage, a sad story, a multi-lingual quotation, anything.

I like getting concensus, so you can ask your friends to campaign for you, tell them to support you in the comments area. Expect the announcement of winner on or before Sept 4, Saturday.

Goodluck!

    Hi there!

    oo nga naman, you have a point there. Personally, I have "faith" (naks) in google. It's not just size of mailbox. I've seen how gmail innovates and I know that they will continue to improve the service as the needs and technologies change.

    But that just me ;-) . Here are some links you could check out:
    Gmail presents challenge for e-mail leadersGmail Swap(I'll add more links when I find more. You can add your links here too.)

    Cheers!
