This year's guest blogging contest was kicked off July 6th and is now coming to a close just over 9 weeks later. Unlike in past years, this time there are a whole list of winners to announce…
This year's contest had 17 entries and a very eclectic mix ranging from articles about Twitter and other social media to business advice to poetry. I very much appreciate each guest post and the time and effort that went into creating it and promoting it, and all the participants deserve congratulations regardless of the contest results. Thank you all!
And now- on to the winners and their winnings.
Israel also won the US$50 early bird prize that was drawn on August 3rd, 2009.
