I'm excited to announce a new blog contest at the Coding Pad today!! :) In partnership with Dorien Herremans, author of the Drupal 6: Ultimate Community Site Guide ebook, we will be running a blog contest focused on building community websites with Drupal. I've been building a series of Drupal beginner tutorials here, but I'm sure you're itching to learn more, build more, and explore Drupal's power past the basics. Well, here's a suggestion for you - build a community website!! How?  By getting and learning, and working along with an excellent book - Drupal 6: Ultimate Community Site Guide ebook!! :) Up for grabs are three copies of this awesome ebook that walks you step by step through the process of building a Community Website using Drupal.  I wrote my inital impressions about this book in a prior blog post (Drupal 6: Ultimate Community Site Guide Book - Initial Impressions) -  and since then have continued to be impressed by the author's approach and the content of the book. How to Enter: It's real easy!
