Looking for Guest Bloggers and Contest Deadline Extended
Work is very busy at the moment (no, the slow down in posts has not been entirely from TGC) and there will be a week or two during the month of April when I will be completely “away-from-keyboard” and not have access to the net.
It kind of sucks because I may miss my one year anniversary of blogging!
So I’m looking for some guest bloggers. I’ve only had one guest-blogged post so far and it did around 10,000 hits. This can be a great opportunity to reach a wider audience, and to help me out. Read more about why you should guestblog and how to be a good guestblogger at problogger.net.
Stats from the guestblogger post:
According to my WordPress.com stats //engtech now has around 900 RSS subscribers and gets between 6,000-9,000 page views a day (more if a post goes viral). It is a PR6 site (Technorati ranking: ~2,000) and usually does very well in search rankings.
Subject matter should be able something I’d normally write about: how-tos, lifehacks, blogging, programming, development, geeky stuff… of course, I’m pretty much all over the place so it isn’t as limited as you might think.
Older posts are fine if you’re okay with having it republished here.
If you are interested then please contact me with a 3-5 sentence pitch for your post at this email address .
You will get
- a byline/bio-paragraph at the top of the post and
- a link to your blog at the beginning/ending of your post along with
- any relevant links to other posts on your blog you include in the article.
The deadline for pitches is March 24th, 2007 and the deadline for the final article is April 1st, 2007.
Contest Deadline Extension
Because I am stupidly busy I haven’t been holding up my end of the bargain with the contests I’ve been running in-terms of linking back to the participants and picking out my favorites. The current contest is being extended to March 31st, 2007 and the next contest won’t start until the third or fourth week of April.
