5 Finalists Named in the
“Great AWAI Blog-Off” Competition

Congratulations to the five finalists in the “Great AWAI Blog-Off” Competition, which, as of today, is officially underway:

  • Ann Jordan-Mills
  • Robert Nomura
  • Sid Smith
  • John Torre
  • Isabel Viana

These five finalists will now compete for the grand prize by writing one blog entry per week for the month of May.

The purpose of a blog, in addition to generating search engine traffic, is to engage readers and start a dialogue with them.

That’s where you come in …

We want you to vote and comment on your favorites!

Based on the amount of comments and votes received by the end of the month, the AWAI Web Team will select one winner, who will be named AWAI Web Division’s New Official Blogger and receive a monthly retainer to write a weekly blog for Wealthy Web Writer. The winner will also be eligible for other web-writing assignments for AWAI’s Web Division.

Every Wednesday this month, we’ll post the five contestants’ entries on the AWAI website.

The first five entries have been posted. Now the fun begins … start voting!

You can access all the blog entries here …

  1. Great selections, Rebecca, with some different approaches to choose from. Out of curiosity, how many entries did you get?

  2. Yeah, I'm curious about how many responses you got, too.

  3. P.S. It doesn't look to me as if I can go from one blog entry to another easily at the end of someone else's's. I want to read them all to compare, but had to go back and forth through several pages each time, except for once or twice. How about a "next" button??
