Step Three Complete

August 26th, 2006 · 6 Comments

The ad block has been sold. I’m just waiting on the graphic to be sent over to me and we’re there. I have now doubled my dollar three consecutive times and my PayPal account is registering $8 more than it was this morning.

I’ve got a couple of ideas for Step Four but as I said in my Origins of The Challenge post I’d love it if readers of this site were to come up with the ideas and we let the dice decide my outcome so if you’ve got any novel ideas as to how I can double my $8 to $16 please let me know either by posting a comment to this entry or via the contact form.

    OK the ad is now in place for Help Me 2 Help You. The site is based over in the US and is all about helping people out. From the press release :

    Before you attempt to clean those gutters on that dangerous ladder alone, before you drive yourself mad with that tune in your head, or before you make that big decision, turn to the new free website community At you can ask for and receive exactly the help you need, with anything, for free. For the individual or group, church or charity, rich or poor, will connect you with the answers to your questions, the advice you seek or the assistance you need.

    I couldn’t not add it after Richards cheeky free plug! Thanks to everyone who submitted their ideas for the ad block. I may well repeat this further down the line so keep on checking back.

    How are you doubling your amount when you didn’t spend your previous $4 to get $8… As I see it you added $8 to &4 so now you have $12… or am I wrong???

    Hi Miha,

    Yeah technically I do now have an odd $4 knocking around. I hadn’t thought of that! Still I guess it’ll go some way to paying the hosting charges unless, of course, you wanted to PayPal me over $4 and then I’ve completed Step Four too 😉

    Got here via Richard Stocks’ website – I’m new to this whole thing and was just checking stuff out.
    Now being a newbie, have I missed stage 4 or did you stop at Stage 3 and use your $8 (or $12) to buy a beer?
    Ta for letting me know.

    Hi Eddie,

    The Challenge kinda stalled at Stage 3, to be honest, and I’ve not done anything with it since.

    I’m reviewing all of my online activities at the moment and I’ll either continue with it or bin it. Either way I’ll post the future of the Challenge over the next couple of weeks.

    Thanks for stopping by :)
