Beyond the Rhetoric is the official blog of Michael Kwan, who is a professional freelance writer based out of Vancouver, BC Canada. His freelance writing services can be procured on his website MichaelKwan.com. The purpose of his blog is to serve as an outlet for his creative juices to flow without inhibition.
With Beyond the Rhetoric, Michael writes in a more casual tone than is allow on his professional freelance writing site. It certainly brings a personal touch to his writing, and reveals some insights into the man behind the keyboard. From the categories section, some of the topics that Michael blogs about are automobiles, food and drink, technology, video games, and many other random stuff which he come across in the process of researching for his freelance writing projects.
Those blog posts are fun, interesting, and easy to digest(definitely not heavy subjects like SEO, or how to make that million bucks from your blog) and will appeal to casual reader who's looking for interesting read online.
Michael is currently holding a contest where he is giving away a USB TV Tuner with PVR and time-shifting capabilities, worth $80. Michael has provided 3 different ways for bloggers to enter the contest and you can earn up to 5 entries by combining all 3 routes. Reviewing his blog had earned me 1 entry, and adding Beyond The Rhetoric to my Technorati Favourite blog earned me another entry.
By subscribing to his full RSS feed, and posting the screenshot in this post, I've earned a bonus entry, making a total of 3 entries earned.
To earn the maximum 5 entries, you got to be the Top commentator for the month of June.
The contest is open to all residents of the world, provided that you have reasonable access to some sort of postal service. You don't expect Michael to mail the TV tuner to Antarctica right? The deadline for entering the contest is 12:01AM PST on July 1, 2007.
