Although a cash award is always great, the exposure to new audiences has increased my readership. The contest helped to create an even closer community among my long-time readers.
San Francisco CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Healthline, a leading provider of intelligent online health information services, recently announced its third annual Best Health Blogs of 2013 contest. Bloggers and their fans may nominate their favorites between Nov 20, 2013 and February 20, 2014.
Winners will receive $1,000 for first place, $100 for second, and $50 for third. In addition to the cash prizes, Healthline's website will promote the top three winners, providing increased visibility from its extensive network of visitors.
"Hosting this contest has become an annual tradition for Healthline.com," said Director of Marketing, Tracy Rosecrans. "It is an excellent way for health bloggers to win some cash and get exposure to a vast number of new readers."
The 2012 winner was "But Doctor … I Hate Pink," a powerful and funny chronicle of writer Ann Silberman's battle with terminal breast cancer. "It was such an honor to win the contest last year," Silberman said. "Although a cash award is always great, the exposure to new audiences has increased my readership. The contest helped to create an even closer community among my long-time readers."
Healthline’s contest is fully-integrated with social media services, including Twitter and Facebook, which encourages nominees to post a custom contest entry badge directly on their blog site to draw votes. The custom badges can be found by visiting http://www.healthline.com/health/best-health-blogs-contest and clicking on the "add a badge to your site" link found under contest details.
