Blogger Challenge – Winner Takes Home $300 & 2nd Place Receives $200
Good afternoon friends! We would like to announce our latest contest giveaway. Cabins For You is hosting a Blogger Challenge. The contest is simple. Participants are being asked to post an article on their personal blog based on the topic “Top 10 tips for Traveling.” Next, they should submit the URL of the blog posting to our contest coordinator at [email protected] Your email is the only way to officially enter the contest. The first place prize is $300 and second place prize $200. We will also be recognizing the next 5 entries by posting a snippet of their post and a link to it on our blog, Twitter, and Facebook page so that our readers can enjoy the great entries.
Anyone who owns a blog (WordPress and Blogger hosted blogs can enter as well) can participate and we would like to ask everyone to spread the word. There are just a couple of rules. The main one is that the article must contain a snippet of HTML code provided below. It must be posted before or below the article. There is only one entry per person so make it count!
<p>I am participating in a blogger contest held by <a href=”http://www.cabinsforyou.com”>Cabins For You</a>. Cabins For You specializes in cabin rentals located in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge TN. For more information about cabins, events and attractions please visit their <a href=”http://www.cabinsforyou.com/blog/”>blog</a>.<p>
**Please be aware that Blogger randomly “messes” with links when copying/pasting.**
Simply copy and paste the code into your blog post (must be in “HTML view” for the code to work). If you have any questions about adding the code to your blog posting please do not hesitate to contact [email protected]
Other than that, please keep your articles appropriate for all audiences. Feel free to expand on the title of your blog. We would love to see some creative tips like advice for traveling with toddlers, traveling with only $1 in your pocket, and traveling by bicycle (hopefully you’re getting the picture.) Here are some words that describe what your post could be like: fun, romantic, corny, hysterical, ridiculous, sappy, moving, powerful, etc. We are also encouraging entrants to post their blog URL on our Facebook fan page for extra exposure. Be creative please!
We will begin accepting submissions on Monday, June 21, 2010 at 12:00 pm and the contest will end on Saturday, July 31, 2010.
The Cabins For You staff will be judging entries and picking the winners. Judging will be based on creativity, relevance to the topic, quality, and how much the article moves us (ie. Laughter, crying, feelings of needing to take action, or just really good advice).
Thanks and good luck!
Cabins For You
