Ideablob.com Small Business Community ~ Submit Your Idea, Help Others, Vote on the Best

If one of your New Year's resolutions is to launch a new business, consider this opportunity to win prize money to get you started.

Sponsored by Advanta, ideablob.com is an online community where you submit business ideas and receive feedback, advice--and if it's a great idea--lots of votes from others.

The Survivor-meets-Kaboodle voting concept creates monthly winners of the most highly voted ideas. Three months have passed of this contest already, but three more remain! If your idea generates the most votes in January, February or March, you could win $10,000 cash to start making the idea a reality. If you're an Advanta credit card holder, there's an additional 1 million rewards points tossed in, too.

It's similar to what Intuit did last year on it's "Just Start" contest, but with more cash to more people.

Naturally, Advanta "inspired" this idea(blob) to attract people who want to fund small business ventures by opening new credit cards accounts...but I get a kick out of publicity stunts like this.

Check it out and if you post something, let me know and I'll share it here.
