A second early bird prize

ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT: There are now 2 early bird cash prizes that will be chosen at random from all the contest submissions received before Monday August 1st, 2011.
We've now doubled your chances of winning money if you get your entry in by next week.
As the old Nike tagline goes, JUST DO IT.
Thank you to our Bronze Sponsor: Recruiting Animal
Animal is the host of a rowdy online call-in show about recruiting and careers. In April 2006, he founded the Recruiting Animal blog, then, in March 2007, he started The Recruiting Animal Show, the only online call-in show about recruiting in world history.
In addition to over $2500 in other prizes, as the first grand prize winner you will earn the chance to appear on Animal's popular show, if you can handle the heat.
Announcing the Judges' Choice prize
- US$100. Sponsored by Freelancer.com.
The Judges' Choice prize will be the overall favorite guest post as voted by the contest judges (who will be announced later), regardless of how well the guest post performed in competition for the other prizes.
The idea behind this prize is that sometimes the contest has great posts that for whatever reason don't perform well, and this is a way one of them can still get some recognition.
Thank you to our Bronze Sponsor: Jason Alba and JibberJobber
“So what is JibberJobber? Is it a job search tool? Is it a networking tool? It is more like a personal relationship manager that allows you to do everything you need to do to manage a job search and optimize your network relationships – for the duration of your career!”
The first grand prize winner will win free access to Jason's paid webinar “Blog Marketing 201-501”, about how to promote your blog (a US$100 value) and a copy of his upcoming book, 8 Lunches.
