How to Enter the SEJ Guest Blog Post Competition

1. Submit your original tutorial, guest post or article via emailing it to (yes, you can submit multiple posts)
2. Include a 75×75 image of the author (or send a link to your Facebook or another profile with a pic)
3. SEJ staff will review these articles, edit them (if needed), then post them on the blog over a 2 week
4. Judging of the articles will be a multi-tier process looking at social media voting, reader voting, traffic of the individual posts and links to the posts. The voting will be measured 2 weeks after the initial publishing date.

So, we essentially give the responsibility of the voting to the readers :

SEJ user voting at post level + Stumbles + Comments + Sphinns + Diggs + Unique Users + Page Views (Google Analytics) + Mixx Votes + Incoming Links (as measured by Yahoo) = Final Tally

We do not encourage contributors to game the social media voting systems, please let the users of those systems vote for the stories. You can of course promote your posts to friends using IM, Twitter, Facebook, your own blog … etc.

5. Grand Prize will be assigned to the post with the highest final tally as voted upon. We will be transparent about reporting these votes and will rank all of the guest blog posts when we make our final announcement. The Grand Prize will be announced on 5/19/08.
