Almost 2 months after its first entry appeared on JobMob, the 4th Annual JobMob Guest Blogging Contest has finally come to an end. So who won?
As I'd hoped, this year's contest was the biggest and best one we've had on JobMob to date.
Here are some numbers that tell the story:
As usual though, the numbers don't tell the full story.
I had a great time meeting many new people and reconnecting with some old, interviewing Jason Alba, interviewing & being interviewed by Keller Rinaudo, and you can tell from the comments that many of the bloggers also enjoyed themselves. And of course, the articles will live on in the JobMob archive, continuing to help people for a long time to come.
So a big Thank You to all the bloggers.
Another big Thank You goes out to all our sponsors, whose prizes & promotional efforts helped get the attention of so many terrific contestants. More about them further down.
And now, on to the winners:
All contestants won at least these 2 prizes:
There was so much effort on the part of the bloggers to promote and have their articles promoted on social media (as you saw above) that I decided during the contest to add an extra prize as a surprise for the blogger who had the most success with their article on social media.
