G’day! Byron the Quokka here, jumping an obstacle course of puddles to remind you that we have a comment contest going, and it’s a big one: shooting for Comment No. 116 more wordsDon’t Forget the Comment Contest — Lee Duigon
G’day! Byron the Quokka here; and it’s my pleasure today to open our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest! The winner gets an autographed book (instead of a bicycle!). 163 more wordsLet the Christmas Carol Contest Begin! — Lee Duigon
It’s way too early to have another comment contest. We have almost 67,000 comments, and the next logical target has to be 70,000. We also have over half a million views, so we’ll have to do something special to mark 1 million views, if we ever get there. But it’s almost time to start our […]Heads Up! Christmas Carol Contest Coming Soon — Lee Duigon
The contest will be held at Lee Duigon’s blog!
Let’s go and request carols on Lee Duigon’s blog!
G’day after Christmas! Byron the Quokka here–and are you ready to close our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest? Well, I’m not!
Crikey, look at all the carols that we haven’t posted yet! The carol with 44 views the day it was posted, Dec. 12 (I think), is still in the lead. I don’t think anyone’s going to beat that, but we can keep on playing. The winner gets an autographed copy of Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever, when it’s published–which should be pretty soon.
Sorry, I’m not allowed to tell you who got those 44 views: don’t want to spoil the surprise. Meanwhile, no way we’re gonna run out of carols! You request ’em, I’ll post ’em.
And a Merry Christmas to us all, and as Tiny Tim observed, God bless us, every one!
Just look at that beautiful cover of Lee Duigon’s upcoming new book!! It’s fantastic!! And don’t forget to join the fun annual Christmas Carol Contest, held at Lee Duigon’s blog! The prize is an autographed copy of Lee’s new book, “His Mercy Endureth Forever”!!
Here is the full cover:
G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest seems to be slowing down. So here’s my idea to pep it up!
The prize will be an autographed copy of Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever. And if you want to find out if Ellayne and Dulayl get eaten by the giant hyena, you’re gonna need this book! It hasn’t been published yet, but it’s all ready to go and it should be coming out early next year.
The winner will be whoever requests the Christmas carol that gets the most views on the day it’s posted. So far the leader has 22 views. Do I hear 25? Thirty? And one thing we don’t have to worry about is running out of Christmas carols!
Here on Rottnest Island, we have no hyenas of any kind, not even little ones. All the quokkas agree that’s a…

The contest is on a roll! Request a carol on Lee Duigon’s blog!!
G’day! Byron the Quokka here. We don’t get any snow on Rottnest Island: that picture’s me on our family vacation to New Jersey. Only chance I ever got to use my skis.
Anyhow, I’m here to report on the progress of our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest. And the carol that got 24 views on Dec. 1 is still in the lead. No, I’m not going to tell you what it was, or who posted it. It’s sort of a blind taste test. I love those! Did you ever see the one where they’ve got people taste-testing cat food? Fantastic!
So let’s keep those carols coming, folks. I told Lee I could make this a tremendously successful contest and I won’t want to wind up looking like a doo-dah. It would be very bad for my prestige!
Attention please!! Here’s a very important announcement from Byron the Quokka…
G’day! Byron the Quokka here. Look at the neat tennis ball I found! Some careless human lost it, they must think these things grow on trees.
Ah! But I’m here to officially open our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest, beginning–today!
Here’s the rules. The winner is that reader who requests a Christmas carol and, on the day it’s requested and posted, racks up the most views. So if, say, on Dec. 14, Reader A requests “Pat-a-Pan” and gets 24 views for it on that day; but on Dec. 17, Reader B requests “Noel” and gets 29 views for it on that day–well, Reader B would be the winner, unless someone else comes along and does even better.
I think the winner ought to get a tennis ball, I love the way you can pull the hair off them–the tennis balls, not the winner–but I think the prize will be an…

Get ready for the Christmas Carol Contest that is going to be held on Lee Duigon’s blog!!!
G’day! Byron the Quokka here… and I’m not quite sure why I’m here today. Let me just collect my thoughts.
Oh! Right! Our 2019 Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest! That’s why Lee posted that picture of our Quokka Christmas tree ornament. It’s a reminder that God’s whole creation, including quokkas, is saved by Jesus Christ.
Anyway, the contest starts the day after Thanksgiving and the winner, when the smoke clears, wins an autographed book. Last year’s winner was TheWhiteRabbit. This year–well, it could be you!
Here’s how it works. We post Christmas carols each day, all the carols requested by readers; and the one whose carol got the most views, on the day it was requested and posted, is the winner. So simple, a kangaroo could understand it.
Now isn’t that more fun than nooze?
The winner is announced!!
(This is a post from Lee Duigon’s blog which was posted on November 3rd.)
It happened last night–100,000 views on the year. And we have a winner, too, who will get a bright red Extra Large official Quokka T-shirt. And that winner is–!

G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and that’s me, boldly jumping across a river full of, well, very small crocodiles, because I want to be first in line to see who wins our 100,000 Views on the Year contest. Just 108 more views to go! We don’t know how to discover who, exactly, is the 100,000th view, […]
