Why Jay needs an iPad from Page.ly


Seems page.ly is having a little contest to celebrate their first birthday…

Yup, they are giving away two iPads, and some other very cool prizes.

And I *need* an iPad. Not want, need…

Why does Jay need to win an iPad from page.ly?

  1. Cause they are wicked cool
  2. “They” being iPads. And page.ly
  3. So my dear wife Francy doesn’t have to listen to me whine all the time about needing an iPad.
  4. If I had an iPad from page.ly, I could do amazing listing presentations. That would let me sell more real estate, and I’d make more money – and I could buy more sites from page.ly…
  5. Right now at this very moment, I’m writing this post in Chicago’s O’Hare airport. While I balance this laptop on my leg. It’s heavy. And hot. If I had an iPad, I could write posts like this in style.
  6. With an iPad, I could be almost as cool as Josh and Sally. Almost.
  7. Everyone wants to play with an iPad. I’d make a page.ly logo my desktop background. Then when people wanted to play with my iPad, they’d say, “What’s page.ly?” I could tell them all about the goodness that is page.ly. I’d be like a page.ly Ambassador/Fanboy.
  8. I’m turning 50 in October. FIFTY. I need all the cool factor I can muster. Having an iPad would make me like 25 on the awesomeness scale. I’d be young and hip. Again.
  9. I’m a PC guy. And I get crap all the time from the folks at Gangplank (where Page.ly World Headquarters is located) for using a PC and not a Mac. If I had an iPad, all those people could STFU.

Right about now, someone is probably saying, “What the heck is page.ly?” In a nutshell, they provide spectacular, and ridiculously simple hosting for WordPress sites. The very blog you are reading right now is hosted by page.ly. You can, and I’m not exaggerating here, have a self-hosted “WordPress.org” blog up and running in minutes. They install it, set it up, update it, load plugins and all that jazz. Click a few buttons and you can have a blog running on the kick-ass WordPress platform in no time flat. It’s easy-peasy. Trust me, go to page.ly right now.

PLEASE pick me. I’m freaking begging you. THANK YOU!

    Tell you what, if you get that ipad, I won't even be jealous. You deserve it. 🙂

  3. Yes, you can type on the iPad… it does take a lot of getting used to, though.

    I hope you win. I have a question for you.

    What type of software if any do you use for listing presentations? I have been asking a few agents and would love to get your feedback. Thanks, Alex Aguilar

    Jay, I hope you wind your ipad, but I'm gonna stick with my PC and my iPod. Good luck!

  6. Just outta curiousity… Did you win? I think the iPad is neat. I don't have much use for it in my day-to-day and it certainly wouldn't replace my Macbook Pro. But there are some really cool applications on it. I'm curious to see how any real estate agents might be using it creatively…

      They just announced the winners last night. While I did make the "finalist list", sadly I didn't win the iPad. There were some great and really creative entries (that took FAR more time than writing this article).

      Agree it'll never replace a lap top. But it's still wicked cool.

  7. Sorry you didn't win the iPad Jay but you should just go out and buy one anyway – I'm lovin' mine when my kid hasn't hijacked it for school, entertainment, or reading on the go. By the way, I just read every post on your new blog and I love it! Thanks for your awesome spirit of sharing and keep up the great work!

    Go for it. Get the iPad. I'm on mine now and can't imagine what I did without it. One of my clients had hers with her when we went out this weekend and we were laughing about how we don't go anywhere without them. She had a great case called a "book book" so it disguises it like a journal Less likely to get picked up if you are out in public and get distracted. It's part of my minimalist business tools strategy…now that the iPhone opens lock boxes too I'm traveling ten lbs lighter!
