*** Thanks for all your entries, but this competition is now closed! If you haven’t heard from us yet, unfortunately, you didn’t win this time. Check the blog for more competitions coming soon! ***

Get ExpressVPN

On June 1, 2009, ExpressVPN published its first blog post. It was titled, “Top 3 reasons to get a VPN,” and it doesn’t quite hit the high editorial standards of today. It was a different time.

The posting was sporadic at first as the plucky ExpressVPN blog found its voice, but they kept coming. Oh boy, did they keep coming!

Slowly, new writers joined the fold. Brad, Lexie, Johnny 5, and others united with a simple goal: to make the blog a bastion of wholesome goodness for VPN and related tech topics. And be entertaining too, naturally.

But that’s enough back slapping. You’re here for that sweet 500 days of free VPN!

500 days of VPN! How do I win such a glorious prize, you ask?

It’s simple!

Just vote for your favorite ExpressVPN blog below by retweeting it via the competition link. We’ll pick a voter for the winning blog at random and give them 500 days of free ExpressVPN.

There will be runners-up, too—a random voter from each of the ten losing blogs will get 6 months of free ExpressVPN. Nice.
