win-a-16gb-ipod-touchCheck out a cool new site and you could be the lucky winner of a 16GB iPod Touch (ARV $299)!

Xtraxtra.com is your digital resource for news and milestones in your hometown and community. Just like your local newspaper, xtra xtra features the following milestones from locations across the U.S.:

birth, adoption, death, wedding, engagement, anniversary, birthday, academic, athletic, military, professional announcements, events, and photos.

But what sets the site apart is that all features are fully searchable making it easy to find the specific information you're seeking! Registration isn't necessary to use the site, but you get some great additional features when you register like the ability to send ecards and upload an unlimited number of milestones to keep your family and friends informed about your announcements.

You can even add an RSS feed for your location to your feed reader to stay on top of new milestones with ease!

Xtraxtra.com would love it if you'd give their site a little test drive. In exchange, you can earn entries for a chance to win a 16GB iPod Touch. What a fantastic way to put all that free music we've been finding lately to good use!

I did not know that this site could give local news and event. What a wonderful concept. Thanks!

8 Dawn Jorgensen July 6, 2009 at 11:39 pm

I like this idea; we usually hear more about national or world news - which is good - its just that we should be aware of what is happening around us, closer to home.

I like the site xtra xtra. I like on the left side you can pick which milestones you'd like to see.

11 Chrysa July 6, 2009 at 11:49 pm

I like the site and that you can filter to get just the info that you want or browse through a lot.

I liked how easy it was to find 'milestones' near me by just inputting my zip code.

I think the website was ok. It was easy to scroll through and find the different stories and it was easy to use the tabs to find which types of announcement you're looking for.

26 Gianna July 7, 2009 at 12:50 am

It's very easy to search through :)

27 Jessie A July 7, 2009 at 1:22 am

Best of all, xtra xtra is FREE, simple to use, and no registration is necessary. If you just want to look - that’s ok with us.

This is so very refreshing when most information sites want your life history.

Great give-away. Thank You.

28 Greg July 7, 2009 at 1:55 am

I didn't like the website actually. I think the photos look really fake and forced. It would be better if the photos on the main page showed real people doing real things.

I like the Xtra xtra website and thought it was easy to navigate.

I know your giveaway is over, but I'm only posting in case the folks from XtraXtra are checking the comments. I wanted to add that when I enter a ZIP code, I'm getting stuff that's not related to the area at all. For example, I put in 32502 and I get wedding announcements that feature people from Gainesville, which is a long way away. I don't know if there's any way to fine-tune the process, but I wanted to mention it.

Auriette´s last blog post..It pays to shop around.
