Locked and loaded for 20,000 points

It's been a hectic race to win that last prize (Samsung 42" LED TV) in the LeapFish Cash Dash contest by earning 20,000 points, but I'm locked and loaded!

Yesterday, I posted about how I temporarily jumped into the lead, regaining first place. But it was only temporary. Soon after, Willie Ford Jr has some additional points approved and I was once again bumped down into second place.

Here are the leaderboard stats as of this post:

Wes Novack19235 points
Willie Ford Jr19195 points
Joe Colburn11270 points

As you can see, I have regained the lead number one position in the contest! Now that's what I like to see!

So I am at 19,235 points. Not too far from 20,000, huh? No sir-ee. AND, I am "locked and loaded" for 20,000 points. What does that even mean? It means that I have submitted or "reported" additional points earning activities, that if all are approved, will bump me up over the 20,000 points threshold.

I'm very excited to finally achieve this highest point level and win one of the Samsung TV's. I recently installed a surround sound system in my home and this new Samsung TV will go perfectly with it!

I've put in a TON of time and effort to get all of these points and I'm glad that it will be paying off, thanks to LeapFish.

It's not too late to enter! And they'll still be giving away cash prizes as long as more people set their homepage to Register for the contest for free simply registering here.

Back up to first and then again back into second again

More LeapFish Cash Dash points have been rolling in today. Yesterday, I dropped into second place, and while that is not really so bad, my competitive nature still makes me want to maintain the top number one spot.

Today, more points were approved and there was a short timeframe where I was catapulted back into the number one spot. Then, a few minutes later, Willie Ford Jr had more points approved and regained the number one position. It is definitely getting competitive at the top spot! Even so, I'm doing my best to ensure that I will be one of the winners of the Samsung LED TV. It will go great with my new 5.1 surround sound system that I just installed in my living room. :-)

Here's what the leader board looks like as of this post:

Willie Ford Jr18935 points
Wes Novack18835 points
Joe Colburn11270 points

As you can see, I'm pretty close to Willie Ford Jr, at exactly 100 points behind. This blog post itself should provide another one hundred points to help me catch up and I'm working on some other things as well to help me get to the 20,000 point tier. Samsung TV here I come!

Joe Colburn is still in third with around eleven thousand points, but he is still dangerous! I'm keeping an eye on his YouTube videos and I see he's still getting lots of views, so I feel like he could catapult up into the 1 or 2 spot at any time due to YouTube view point awards.

Hopefully by tomorrow I will have regained the number one top spot in this lovely contest, the LeapFish $100,000 Cash Dash. You can sign up for the contest free here:

And I've lost the lead position!

It's June 1st, approximately 8:40PM. I just checked out the Leaderboard on the LeapFish Cash Dash site and somehow, I have lost the lead in the contest! I suppose I shouldn't be totally surprised by this. Willie Ford Jr has been pretty close and nipping at my heels the whole way, but still, I guess I am a bit startled to see the lead lost.

Here are the LeapFish Cash Dash leaderboard stats as of this post:

Willie Ford Jr18635 points

Wes Novack18205 points

Joe Colburn11270 points

As you can see, Willie Ford Jr is number 1, I'm very close in the number 2 spot and Joe Colburn is in the number 3 spot. I've held on to the lead for the past 3 weeks or so, but the I have finally been de-throned by another contestant.

I really have no idea how Willie Ford Jr is getting all of his points. I see he has one LeapFish video that has 1,733 views (as of today), so he's not getting the one thousand views points and he's not submitting a ton of new videos to get video points. Perhaps he's just blogging about LeapFish a lot and getting a lot of referrals? Who knows.

Joe Colburn is definitely a threat at number 3. He has been amassing huge amounts of views on his LeapFish YouTube videos, which will help to keep his point totals increasing more and more.

What I'm more intrigued by is the number 4 and number 5 positions, which LeapFish doesn't disclose. You see, the first three contestants to reach 20,000 points will win a Samsung LED TV, but since the LeapFish crew doesn't list the number four and number five positions, I have no idea if there are others that might be a threat to me obtaining one of the top three slots for the Samsung TV prize.

In any case, I certainly plan on winning that Samsung LED TV! And the LeapFish Cash Dash contest rolls on....
