Ilium Software to give away millions in cash and prizes!

april-fools-dayAs you may already know, the first day of the month is when we pick a winner from our ongoing blog comment contest. And as the headline of this post suggests, boy do we have a great contest today for one lucky winner! That’s right – cash and prizes totaling more than one million…more than two million…could it be more than three million? Read on after the jump to find out all the details about what may possibly be the¬†coolest contest ever!

Are you still with me? Great! That can only mean one of two things: either you’re really hyped up and ready to find out how you can get a chance to win millions of dollars in prizes, or I didn’t fool you at all, you know exactly what day it is, but you’re such a good sport you decided you wanted to read the rest of my post anyway. I’m sure it’s the latter – I know you’re way too clever to be fooled by something like this on April 1st, right? Good for you. And as a reward, let me tell you about the contest I do have lined up today.

While I may not have millions of dollars in prizes to give away, there is a slight twist to this month’s blog contest. And we do have an extra-special prize to give away. Since I couldn’t fool you with my little lie about the gigantic prizes, I have a backup plan. Somewhere on our website, I’ve changed some text as a little April Fools Day joke. What could it be? Well, that’s for me to know and you to find out. I will say this: it’s more than just a couple of words. And I think you’ll know it when you see it. Or, at least, I sure hope you won’t read it, believe it, and keep on scrolling!

So, what do you do when you think you’ve found it? Well, first of all, DO NOT post it to the comments below. That will do nothing but get you disqualified and BOOed by the rest of the readers, and they might come to your house and throw rotten tomatoes at you. Seriously, we want everyone to have a chance to find our little joke! Please send your guesses via email to: julie at iliumsoft dot com. In your email, include a link to the page where you think you found the fake text, and be sure to quote the text you think is fake. I’ll pick a random winner from all the correct entries.

What do you stand to win? This time around we’ve got a different sort of software to give away: a brand-new, never-before-opened copy of Expression Media 2 by Microsoft. This is some pretty snazzy software that lets you store all of your media visually.

All right, hurry up and find the trick text! As soon as I get here tomorrow morning, I’m taking it back off the site. Because let’s face it – something that’s funny on April Fools Day looks just plain foolish if you read it the next day! I’ll update this post tomorrow after I pick the winner. So, off you go – good luck and happy hunting!
