Blog Engage Best of the Guest Bloggers Contestby Daniel Snyder on Oct 19, 2010 • 8:22 pm 7 Comments
Blog Engage my favorite social network (other than Twitter of course) is hosting a Best of the Guest Bloggers Contest! There are cash (real money) prizes for first, second and third place, as well as all runner ups will be rewarded with prizes as well! Runner up prizes include free wordpress themes from the contests sponsors along with free yearly hosting plans. The contest is already winding down and there is only just under two weeks left to submit a post. Many good posts have been submitted, but not that many that you should be discouraged from entering! As for myself I can’t believe I’ve put submitting a post off so long… The money prizes are what everyone wants to know about of course and they include $500 USD for first place, $300 USD for second place, and $200 USD for third place!

My favorite part of this contest is the way winners will be judged. There are three keys that are highlighted. Number one is a given “quality of the article“. Obviously your content is going to be judged and that will have a lot to do with your chances of winning. We’ve been advised to make sure our submitted articles are top quality! Number two and what I think makes this contest quite unique is “social networking“. A large percentage of your chance of winning will be based on your ability to utilize social networks and promote your article. Use any networks you want, but get it out there! The final judging criteria is “comments and discussions“. The contest moderators are looking to see how you engage your readers. The total amount of comments will have an impact on the judging. How you respond to those comments will likely also come into play!
