UPDATE – 11/11/11: What an auspicious date! It shall henceforth be written in the Great Big PJ Productivity Book of Awesomeness as a holiday for all productive peeps to celebrate: HEADER DAY!  Click here for the results and to find out who won! 

BIG news here, people!

I had so much fun with the last contest that I’m gonna do it again.

This time, all you have to do is:

  1. Take a look at the four potential headers for this site depicted in the images below.
  2. Pick your fave.
  3. Click here and vote. Don’t forget to enter your email address and name if you want to enter the contest!
The prize: A $10 Amazon gift card!

The Backstory

So, here’s the story. My good friend and fellow Word Carnie evan austin (of graphics by evan austin fame) worked up four kick-ass headers for this site for me to choose from.

Predictably, I can’t make up my mind.

So, I need your help!

The Contenders

Here are your/my choices. Click on each thumbnail to open up the larger image in a new tab.

Option A:

Option A in the Poll Choices

Option B:

Option B in the Poll Choices

Option C:

Option C in the Poll Choices

Option D:

Option D in the Poll Choices

Then head on over here, pick your choice, & enter your name and email address for the drawing. That’s all there is to it!

On Friday, November 11, 2011 at noon eastern, I’ll pick one entry at random from the entries using a random generator app. Winner will be announced here on this post, on Twitter, and on the Facebook page, and then I’ll install the brand new header here on the site.

I do reserve the right not to select the header with the most votes, ’cause I’m stubborn like that. But most probably you guys are gonna make this decision for me, so choose wisely!

I like the first one and it seems to draw your eye along the header to where your sign ups sit and down the right sidebar. Might help with conversions? The ones where the bar stops midway also stop your eye moving along.

Good comment, Becky … did ya vote, too? This is so exciting. 😀

My personal fave is B – although A was a close second. I liked B best because it says “Get the Awesome” and I could hear you saying it.

HA! Yes, evan totally gets me. That was all him, by the way – I never said “Hey, dude, put ‘get the awesome’ in there somewhere…” #evansnumber1fan

ROFLMAO – you guys TOTALLY get me and I love you for it. 😀

I say B because it makes a clear separation between the header and the content area, framing it nicely. Also, the active color is a good contrast for the sandy and more neutral background of the rest of your site. Definitely, definitely, B.


Annie November 8, 2011 at 10:06 pm

Thank you, darlin’! It looks like B is a favorite of quite a few of you … although I don’t wanna sway the voting here one way or the other!


Lana Phillips November 11, 2011 at 3:24 pm

I’m torn between B and C. I loved Get the Awesome in B, but I love the color in C. If I have to pick, though, probably B


Annie November 11, 2011 at 3:26 pm

Thanks so much, Lana! You’re in good company with your choices. 😀 This is so exciting. Can’t wait to find out which header wins — and which awesome PERSON wins the gift card!
