Name the Geek Contest

Name the Geek!Greetings Geeks! By now you’ve noticed our awesome new look and today we present our official Geek Crafts logo! (If you’re reading this in a blog reader, click through, just this once.)

Also today we launch our contest: Name the Geek! This geek needs a name and we’re leaving it up to you, our lovely readers, to decide.

Here’s how it will work:

  • Starting today and up until midnight ET on Sunday, May 29th, leave a comment with your name suggestion. (If more than one person suggests the same name, the first person to suggest it will be entered, so be sure to read through the comments first and come up with something different.)
  • On Monday, May 30th, we’ll post a list of all the names for you to vote on. You can vote until Sunday, June 5th.
  • On Monday, June 6th, we’ll announce the winning name. And to thank the reader who suggested the winning name, we have an epic prize package!

[Edit: Midnight Eastern time – I’ve got to go to bed at some point, kids :) ]
