Winner has been awarded $1001 from Chitika on Problogger.net!



WINNER of $1001! Nancy Callahan

“I am elated about the prize. It couldn’t come at a better time: My fiancé and I are saving up to purchase a house, and the money will be extremely useful as part of the down payment. I can’t thank you guys enough.

Problogger.net held a Group Writing Project last week & Chitika helped by sponsoring the winning prize of $1001! The winner of the project was Nancy Callahan for her entry Baby names from Video Games.

Nancy and Problogger

“I love ProBlogger — and this is coming from someone who isn’t even interested in making money (directly) from blogging. I think that says a lot about how cool ProBlogger is. For instance, Darren has posted recently about feed readers, creativity, personal branding, Technorati — topics applicable to any blog, whether monetized or not. The Group Writing Projects are especially fun — I think this is either the fifth or sixth time I’ve participated.”

Cool Facts About Nancy

  • She’s a native Cape Codder! Just 90 minutes from the main Chitika office!
  • When Nancy’s Baby Names launched in March of 2006, it was one of the first baby name blogs on the internet!
  • She’s been working on several baby name books lately, and started her blog as a way to help her reach and connect with people who wanted Baby Name information.
  • Nancy loves to talk with her readers! Contact Nancy here!

eMiniMalls Plugin for Joomla and Mambo

Developer: Joomlaspan

About the Developer

Chitika eminimalls was a truly innovative and great idea for serving online ads and we were thrilled with an opportunity to make it that much easy to use for Joomla! webmasters. Joomla! being recognized as the best open source content management system makes it that much more relevant too, as it is very widely used. At Joomlaspan, we already had the Google AdSense module that had become very popular. We enjoyed developing the “Chitika eMinimalls Module” which was received by the Joomla! community. This will be continually developed too, to update the module with features available on Chitika. Some of our other popular modules for Joomla include the GSearch Pro and Joomla Translation Extensions both available at http://store.joomlaspan.com and many others at http://www.joomlaspan.com/joomla-downloads

How does the module work? It basically has all the features of Chitika eMinimalls built in. Instead of getting the ad code from the Chitika code generator and pasting it (which may lead to problems with some text editors), the user just selects the options in the Joomla administration backend and installing it. Using the same installation, users can have as many instances of the ads as they want and totally control the ads from within their Joomla! admin backend.
