I wrote a WordPress plugin: Pick Giveaway Winner

I am currently exuding a geeky glow because I wrote my first WordPress plugin. It’s called Pick Giveaway Winner and it does what its title implies: it randomly picks a giveaway winner from the comments of a post. It also lets me disqualify people who enter more than once, or just give them one entry to even the odds. I wrote it because I needed it and no one had written it.

You can read a bit more about it on the Make My Blog Pretty blog. Right now I’m just happy I figured out how to submit it to the official WordPress Plugin Directory, which required me to use Subversion, which I sorta hate and gave me horrible command-line flashbacks to my old job. -mkdir never-again-please

Anyway, I hope this plugin helps make a few bloggers’ lives easier.

I'm linking to this because of the video of Harry Connick Jr. at the bottom, who manages to throw in an extra beat in the middle of a song to get people to start clapping on the offbeat without them even realizing. Mad skillz!
