Help The Yankees Chick and Win Game Tickets!
Sunday, June 10, 2007
As you may have inferred from the mind-numbingly boring layout of this blog or the obviously MSPaint-crafted banner across the top, I am not an artist (or a writer, for that matter, but let's leave that one alone for now) any more than Carl Pavano is a pitcher. I have made a concerted effort to spruce things up around here in hopes that when you flee my blog it will be because of my writing and not because the site is difficult to navigate or offensively hideous. Sadly, since I do not possess an ounce of artistic talent, I believe I've gone as far as I can go in terms of beautification, so I am looking to YOU for some graphical assistance.

For the next step in my blog rejuvenation project, I would love to put a new banner/logo across the top. I cannot make one due to the aforementioned lack of talent, but I have faith that someone out there in the wide world of Yankees Chick fans (I know there are 3 of you out there...) has an eye for graphics and some sweet photoshop skills. If you are a logo master and want to help me out, I am prepared to reward you with a pair of tickets to a Yankees home game - or tickets to whatever team is closest to your home, should you not be a New Yorker.

  • The current banner is 890 x 202. Since the rest of the blog is laid out around that size, I'd like the new one to be in that neighborhood as well.
  • You are under no obligation to use my picture or my delightfully alliterative (albeit untrue) subtitle. In fact, that picture is almost 2 years old, and the subtitle is packed with lies: I am no longer brunette, I never was a babe, and there really isn't any "news" on here, unless you count me talking about stuff that happened days ago. Feel free to craft something new.
Contest Info:
  • Email me a .psd of your creation any time before Sunday, June 17
  • Your entry need not be a final draft. Just send a mock-up of a cool idea.
  • Don't photoshop me into a picture with Pedro Martinez or Papi. It won't be funny.
  • Should your submission be deemed the most unique and visually appealing banner of the bunch, the Yankees Chick shall bestow upon you 2 tickets to an MLB game. You can choose the team and the date and I will send you the tickets. Exception: you will not be receiving tickets to a Mets or Red Sox series. The Yankees Chick is not rich.
  • In addition to the tickets, you will receive a credit on the blog. I am fortunate enough to get a decent amount of traffic (mostly from google searches for "a-rod stray-rod" and "does derek jeter have a girlfriend?"), so a link on my site may garner you 4 additional visitors per calendar year.
  • Legal mumbojumbo: As soon as you submit your idea, you have given it to me and I can use it. I am a nice and honest person, though, so you can rest assured that I will not be doing anything with your images unless you win.
Please email info@yankeeschick.com with any questions.... I shall wait with bated breath for your emails!

    I don't have any great artistic ideas for you, but I wanted to let you know that 1) I am a regular reader of your blog and 2) I read your posts almost exclusively through a feed reader (Google Reader). In fact, when I saw this post, I actually had to click through to remind myself what your site looks like.

    I know none of that is helpful on the redesign front, but I thought I would throw my $0.02 in to let you know that funny, timely, well-written copy is the most important part of your blog to me.

    Thanks and keep up the great blogging!

    If your offer is upgraded to include the tickets AND a date with the Yankees Chick, consider all your problems dissolved.

    blush if you must..but you are a babe.

    Ha - I just thought I'd point out that Googling "does Derek Jeter have a girlfriend" returns this particular post as the 16th result. And "a-rod stray-rod" pulls it up at #21.

    Best of luck with the new banner - I considered trying to create something, but my Photoshop skills are so meagre that I doubt I could outdo what you have now.
