25 terrific entries and almost 400K pageviews later, the 5th Annual JobMob Guest Blogging Contest is over.
Winners' announcement coming this week
Over US$5000 in prizes will be awarded this Wednesday, September 21st.
Among the many prizes about to make a lot of people happy, there's the new Judges' Choice prize, the overall favorite guest post as voted by the contest judges, regardless of how well the guest post performed in competition for the other prizes.
However, since the grand prizes are so grand, I've decided that their winning guest posts won't be eligible for the Judges' Choice prize, only the other 22 entries will be. This is one way I've tried to spread the winnings around to the many contestants, in recognition of their efforts.
The Judges' Choice panel is made up of these terrific contest sponsors:
- Gold sponsor, Marcus Tandler of JOBlog
- Gold sponsor, impact marketing advisor Rabbi Issamar Ginzberg
- Silver Sponsor, Ann Smarty of MyBlogGuest.com
- Bronze Sponsor, Jason Alba of JibberJobber.com
- Bronze Sponsor, Dan Schawbel of The Personal Branding Blog
Thank you to all our sponsors
