Wouldn’t it be great if you can do guest blogging and get paid to do it?

Well if that’s what you are thinking then the 500USD Guest Blogging Contest is where you need to be, which is hosted by Brian from BlogEngage.

If you enter this guest blogging contest then you stand the chance of having a share of $500.

The last time I entered the BlogEngage Guest Bloggers contest, I won $100 (5th place) and I was really thankful for the cash.

See how you can stand a chance of winning even more than I did.

      I am surprised about this. I never tried guest posting contest so far. However, after reading this, I want to take the risk. Please let me know if there are some challenges will come along.
