So what all happens with KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN? Here we go!

As you may (or may not) know, I've purchased a CTP badge. Your job is to get the badge. How? By getting the 10 character badge code. How? You're going on a scavenger hunt! When you surf TE's (such as the Timtech sites except Sweeva, Hot Flash Hits, Traffic Fugitive, Surf Skeleton, and Bella's Click Shack), you'll be looking for my FIVE CTP friends sites. Each site will contain TWO of the characters that make up the badge code. Simple? No?

Here's what you're looking for: Friends #1 contains the FIRST TWO characters of the code (#1 and #2). Friends #2 contains the NEXT TWO characters of the code (#3 and #4) and so on. Find each of the 5 sites, get each the 10 characters (2 per site), then go to CTP, enter the code correctly, and you'll have yourself a badge!

If you have any questions, please put them here as a reply. I'll add updates here as needed based on your feedback.

Last week at a Traffic Exchange Live session, James Dias lead a conversation where he was comparing his (now Timtechs) site "IT247" to Budweiser by referring to it as "ITweiser". Further conversion went out and brought back from my memory the old Budweiser commercials about "Real Men of Genius". That memory turned into a brainstorm that led to me to start (in beta) a project called "Real TE's of Genius"...kind of a spin-off of the "Real Men of Genius" commercials.

Currently there are two sites in my "Real TE's" of Genius" project: Surf Skeleton (William Miller) and a new site, Holy Cow Traffic (Marlene Moore, aka Bartendermo). I don't believe blog rules permit me to post links here (if I'm wrong, please let me know via comment), so if you want to see them, surf pretty much any traffic exchange as I have them as high priority in my TE Toolbox tracker. If you prefer, contact me via Skype or Twitter (swhomebiz) and I'll send you a link to either or both.

Coming Tuesday: KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN!

I hope everyone gets their fill of Halloween/Costumes/Candy/Trick or Treating on Monday because in November, project "KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN" starts. "What's this about?" is a very popular question I'm getting lately, so here's whats going on:

1. It starts Tuesday November 1st (hopefully -- one dependency, so I'll keep you updated)
2. Three major components
a) A new CTP badge I've ordered (it should be a hoot)
b) A new CTP Friends Volume 5 Splash Page that will be released Tuesday
c) How to claim the badge code (see below)

Claiming the badge code will be tricky. This is the one part I'm not sharing information about in advance. You'll enjoy the surprise, I promise. All I'm saying is "KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN".
