We just launched our guild two days ago and thought it would be cool way to get more readers would be to offer a free item. We bounced around ideas such as a game card but ultimately decided a best buy gift card would be the best. It would also hopefully get us newer readers unfamiliar with the WoW Universe and get them interested. (Ideally of course)

Here's a link to the contest directly: http://wowrelief.com/index.php/2009/04/ ... d-contest/
Commenting on the post gets you an entry and a re-post on your blog gets you 5 entries. We're going to do it raffle style.

I've posted the contest everywhere I could, including contest blogs. Anything else you guys think I should do to spread the word about the contest or things I should do for future reference when it comes to running contests?

In past contests I've observed, entries were given away in two forms. Commenters would get 1 "ticket". Trackbacks or link backs would get a slightly higher amount like 3 "tickets". This helped increase the incentive for other bloggers to link to the contest.
