The Season of Giving
by TSG on Tue, December 14th, 2010 at 2:00 pm
Giving is a big part of the holiday season. It’s always so gratifying to see the look on someone’s face when they open the gift you’ve given them. In case you didn’t know, Twitter Trivia gives you a way to receive while experiencing the joy of giving. That’s because you get 100 Swag Bucks if you send me a Twitter Trivia question and I use it! You just have to email questions to me. Here are some guidelines for submitting questions that we can use:
1. Give the question 3-4 parts
If there’s one thing I know about Swaggernauts it’s that you’re quick to answer questions. Because of that, it always makes it more challenging to have multi-part questions. Make sure your questions have at least three parts parts.
So instead of: “What were the three ships Christopher Columbus used to sail to the new world?”
You might ask: “What were the three ships Christopher Columbus used to sail to the new world? What year did they leave? What year did they return? Who commissioned the trip?”
(Keep in mind that I may edit your questions down – after all, I only get 140 characters to ask them!)
2. INCLUDE THE ANSWERS IN YOUR EMAIL!
I can’t ask your questions if I don’t have the accompanying answers – how would I know if anybody got it right?
3. DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!!
This is a biggie. I know we all love Wikipedia
, but the truth is that since their info can be edited by anyone it isn’t the most reliable, so even if that’s a starting point for you, find another reputable source to back you up. Just include a link in your email to your source(s). To repeat – DON’T USE WIKIPEDIA AS A SOURCE. Whatever site(s) you do use, please include them in your email so I can verify the answer.
This may seem like a lot of work but it really isn’t, and remember that if I use your question I’ll hook you up with 100 Swag Bucks, just like that.
I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with, and remember, although I might not use your submission the week you send it, I frequently look through older submissions…
