Hello Readers. I know many of you were waiting for the results of guest blogging gone crazy contest that was organized recently on this blog…Well that day has come when I am happy to unveil the winners of the 5 cash prize winners of this contest.
This contest had $1050 in cash prize to be won by 5 top performing guest authors and many authors participated as well as actively promoted their guest post to fight for their place in the winners list.
Here is again, the prizes for top 5 places if you have forgotten that:
- First Position - $550
- Second Position – $275
- Third Position – $125
- Fourth Position – $75
- Fifth Position – $25
By organizing this contest, I learned many new things. I also noted few points related to conducting a contest on which I will be improving on in the next contest that will be organized in near future…plus I also understood that it’s not a good idea to organize such a big contest during college days (when it’s hard to find time) So most probably the next big contest like this one will be organized during my long holiday break…But don’t worry, I will be conducting some contests on a smaller level sooner or later on this blog.
Ok, so back to the results thingy…But before that let me THANK the sponsors of this contest again with the help of whom I was able to bring up the cash prize to $1050.
Thank you “Estava Morioka” and “The Bad Blogger”. I hope you enjoyed and benefited by being a sponsor of this contest.
LET’S TALK – THE WINNERS
It really did take a lot of time for me to calculate the points. Going through all the collected data; checking the dates, IP addresses, pageviews log, seeing if anything was unusual in the collected data etc. is really not an easy job. But I somehow managed to complete the calculation stuff and can report you the correct results today (although not 100% accurate)…
I hope you have your music players loaded with drum roll sound because you need to play it before you see the winners list…
Authors can personally send me an email and ask for their (only) personal points calculation file. I have created a text file for every guest author with proper breakdown on how the points were given for their guest post.
Here is the final points tally for this contest:

On a side note, I want to mention here that if ‘anyone’ is having any kind of problem regarding the above calculations then just send me an email and explain it properly so that I can look that up. The cash prizes will be sent after 48 hrs. So if you have anything to tell me that may affect the above standings (mainly the top 5 standings), then please tell me about it asap.
