Ditto the Monster looks at the world of family friendly online games from a Fabricated American perspective

Ditto’s House-A-Palooza contest!

The contest has ended as of 12:01am PST on August 22nd, 2011.  All winners have been notified by email.

Thank you!


Here it is, Ditto’s big ‘House-A-Palooza’ contest for Wizard 101!  Wizard 101 has chosen my blog to give away fifteen Dragonspyre ‘Grand Fortress’ houses – a GREAT spooky house with lava flows and underground chambers and lots of room for gardening, decorating, and pets!

For this contest, I wanted to come up with something fun and easy that tied together housing and my blog, and I think I came up with the perfect idea!  I am a monster.  Houses have beds, and beds will often have monsters under them.  After years of bad press from the bedtime story and security blankie lobbies, most people think that monsters under your bed are scary, but that’s simply not true!

My contest is easy – send me an email at Dittocontest@gmail.com between now and MIDNIGHT(PST) on SUNDAY, AUGUST 21st.  In that email, tell me what kind of monster lives under your bed – this can be a friendly monster, a helpful monster, a furry monster, a silly monster, whatever you want it to be – but I don’t want it to be a scary or nasty monster! We have enough bad press already!

The winners of the ‘Grand Fortress’ will all be chosen completely randomly, so it’s 100% fair, and I’ll read the winning entries when I announce the winners!  1 entry per email, please – again, to keep it fair!

Official Rules:

  1. Send an email to Dittocontest@gmail.com with the subject ‘Monster Contest’ between now and Midnight (PST) on Sunday, August 21st, and tell me what kind of monster lives under your bed.
  2. One entry per email address please – multiple emails from the same address will be disqualified.
  3. All 15 Winners will be chosen completely randomly and will be notified by Email on or before Midnight August 23rd, and will also be announced here on my blog.
  4. Ditto, Miss Narrator, and Madame Jasmine are not eligible to win.
  5. Most importantly – this should be a fun contest, so have a good time with it!

  1. Is that a Spotted Turtle Webkinz I see in the background? Cool! Nice contest, I am working on my entry (I know you aren’t judging but I actually really wanted to do this for a while)! Also is it ok if I send you my fan art thing in the email? Or should I send it to your original real email? If so what is it? Dittomonster@Gmail.com?

    • Hi Vanessa – yes, you can send non-contest email to dittowizard@gmail.com, I love fan art! Just remember to stay safe and don’t send information like your address or age or phone number!
