Guest Blogging Contest Winners Announced

It’s time to declare the winners for the guest blogging contest that was started in Nov 20, 2010. I accepted guest posts from bloggers in the date range from 20th Nov to 05th Jan 2011 and I gave 5 more days to all bloggers to gather extra votes on their guest posts. I received 26 guest posts in total from 25 bloggers during the contest period. I calculated the votes against each guest post on 11th Jan 2011 and today I’m going to declare all three winners for guest blog contest that help me add lots of valuable content on my blog in the form of guest posts from variety of bloggers.

Points Calculation

As you all know, bloggers were allowed to send as many as guest posts they like during the guest blogging contest. And their points were supposed to be calculated on the basis of their total guest post submissions. So bloggers who had submitted more than one guest post have higher chance of winning this contest. But bloggers with even single post can be a winner if he was lucky enough to get response on his/her guest post in the form of comments and votes from SFM blog readers. So here is the list of bloggers with their guest posts count, and total points earned against their guest posts:
