Best WP Design Contest

I unexpectedly took a vacation this week and headed up to see my family. When I say “unexpectedly” I mean I packed for a weekend and stayed for a week :). It’s been really relaxing and I’m feeling energized and ready to work (ok, I’m also considering taking a vacation from my vacation).

Our contest has ended and I’m in the process of determining the winner, 5 finalists and newbie blogger with the most votes. With over 800 votes placed, our contest exceeded my expectations and has me extremely excited about future activities!

Many of our nominees have let me know that they’ve seen an increase in traffic, made great new blog connections and earned new readers and subscribers over this last month. Since that was my goal, I couldn’t be happier to hear it worked for those of you who worked it!

I’ve been able to make great new connections through this and I even landed my first phone interview by one of our nominees! I’ve really enjoyed getting to know everyone and I hope we all stay in touch – there is power in numbers!

Our prizes could not be cooler. Our top winner will receive a Become a Blogger Premium Membership, the StudioPress All-Themes Package, the OIOpublisher WordPress Ad Manager Plugin, the Affiliate Marketing Sweetie Course, a FREE Review of Their Blog on and a nifty award badge to place on their blog! Our 5 finalists each get to grab the StudioPress WordPress Theme of their choice. And our newbie blogger with the most votes gets a FREE Review of Their Blog on

Just because our contest is over, it doesn’t mean the communication has to stop. I urge all of you to continue reaching out to each other. Request interviews, do guest posts and help promote one another. You are all the very first nominees for this contest and have convinced me that this is indeed a worthwhile event to host every year!

I will be requesting feedback from each of our nominees soon, so each of us can learn the advantages and disadvantages a blog contest can offer. I will also be writing details about how I hosted the contest and what I did right and wrong. Hopefully, this information will help inspire some of you to host your own blog events and perhaps avoid the mistakes I’ve made.

So, stay tuned to as our winners will be announced tomorrow! And thank you to each of our fabulous nominees for making this an incredibly rewarding and fun event!

A HUGE Thanks To Our Sponsors!

Our contest wouldn’t be the same had each of our sponsors not so graciously contributed their time and products to our winners! Thank You!
