Meet Michael and Ashley. They won iPads from LightCMS.

Well, the first week of our iPad giveaway has come and gone, but we've still got five more iPads to give away next week! Remember that we're not giving out iPads over the weekend, so from now through Monday at 4pm CDT is one, extended contest day. One entry in that time period is all you need to enter for day 6. For more details, check out "What about the weekend days?" on our giveaway FAQ.

We're grateful for how supportive you have all been, both of us and of our daily iPad winners. Reading and replying to your comments each day on Twitter has been so much fun for us. Thanks for being such a great community!

As we head into the weekend, we wanted to give you a chance to get to know our winners from days 3 and 4 a bit more. So take a look below and get to know Michael and Ashley.

Ashley Ingram
  • LightCMS: So where do you live?

    Michael: I'm currently in Portland, Oregon.

    Ashley: I live in Texas.

  • LightCMS: What do you do for a living?

    Michael: In May I received my bachelor's in communications. I'm currently looking for a position in marketing or advertising. I have a personal website that currently points to a neglected blogger account where I post poetry, but a portfolio website is in the works.

    Ashley: I'm a full-time student and I also work for Victory Church in Amarillo.

  • LightCMS: What are you going to do with your new iPad?

    Michael: Emails, social networking, and hopefully more blogging. There's this app for poets that I really want to try called Poet Pad. And thanks to everyone that's congratulated me! Best of luck to you all for the rest of the giveaways!

    Ashley: I plan on using my new gift to help me out with school. I'd also like to say thank you to everyone for all the congratulations. And most of all, thank you LightCMS! This is one rad birthday :)

    (Note: one very amazing part of Ashley's story is that she won her iPad on her actual birthday. She was chosen at random, just as all our winners are, but her iPad turned out to be one great birthday present!)

Congrats Michael and Ashley!

Once again, as reminder: we won't be choosing winners over the weekend. Our next winner will be selected on Monday, September 20th shortly after 4pm CDT. To enter for Monday's iPad, you can tweet your entry anytime from now until 4pm Monday. We hope to see you next week as we give away 5 more iPads, and thank you so much for making the contest so much fun!
