Poppa Needs a New Banner

Happy New Year gang. Rickey would’ve wished you a happy new year earlier, but he was too, shall we say “occupied” on January 1st to be able to post. Rickey’s sincere apologies for that. A new year necessitates new ideas for this blog and Rickey has a few concepts percolating that he’s been thinking about giving a shot. All of which involve greater reader participation, because frankly, Rickey is getting kind of tired and of thinking up new things. That’s right; we’re ushering in ‘08 in the laziest manner possible, with a banner creation contest.

See the banner on top? It’s woefully plain. Thing is, Rickey doesn’t have Photoshop. (Or the desire to learn how to use Photoshop for that matter). So you, the reader, will have to carry the weight for us.

What’s the prize for the creator of the winning banner? Absolutely nothing. There’s been no ad revenue generated from this site, so a hearty handshake and some credit for your effort will have to suffice. Besides, the fact that your creation will adorn the top of this blog is a reward enough in itself, right? So that having been said, here are the requirements for your banner:

1) It must clearly contain the title of this blog, “Riding With Rickey.” And maybe the tagline below that. But we’re flexible on that.
2) It must scale to fit on blogger.
3) No nudity please (this may be the only time in his life that Rickey finds himself typing that phrase).

And that’s it. Seriously, go nuts. Once you’ve created your masterpiece, email it to us (Rickey’s email can be found in his Blogger profile) and we’ll select the winning banner(s). If there are enough strong submissions, we’ll rotate the banner accordingly and ensure that credit is assigned where it’s due. The deadline is 1/18/07.

No nudity please

Ok, if you insist. I was ready to hit "send" on the picture I took of Jessica Alba in bed with Jessica Biel, but after reading the rules, I guess it's no pic for Rickey.

Don't want to violate any regulations.

Mike--I have no regulations at my blog.

I await your, uh, post.
