Blogging Idol 2: Voting Session Is Open

By Daniel Scocco

All right folks, the voting session is open. All the readers and followers of the competition will now be able to vote for their favorite bloggers. The polls will be open from today until Friday 28 (midnight EST).

Just a reminder, you should vote for the competitor that you think are using the most clever and/or effective strategies to promote his blog and to gain new RSS subscribers. You can see the live scoreboard to check the RSS subscriber gains, and you can also read the strategies that the competitors shared with us (batch one and batch two). The three competitors will the highest number of votes will win 1 point each.

Competitors may ask their friends, family or readers to support their cause, that is allowed. You can’t vote more than once for yourself though, or ask people to vote repeatedly too. The poll itself should block this (it uses 2 methods to block repeat voters), and I will also monitor the IP address of the voters to see if anyone is trying to work around this rule.

Finally, PollDaddy only support polls with 99 answers, so I was forced to split it in two polls, but it won’t affect the final result.

Good luck to everyone!

    Suzanne Franco over at suzannefranco.com really put her heart, soul and creativity into this contest and deserves to win. She would make a great blogging Idol and I don’t think it would stop just because the contest ends. She is and always will be creative with her readers and soon to be readers. She won my vote.

    This was one exciting month and 5 days of voting. Lots of lessons to take from this and I plan to use some of the tips.

    Voting has come to end. I have to say, its not easy to get votes. Good Luck to everyone. Keep refreshing the count to it wouldn’t move!

    I’m not a morning person at all. But, to see the RSS counts, I started getting up early. So, this experience has made an impact in my lifestyle too. 2 More Days!

    Big Thanks to folks who voted for me and Happy Schools Blog.

    Rain ~ is it the number of votes that bothers you or you’re wondering how they are going about it?

    It’s easy to see that the more subscribers and site visitors someone has … the more of an advantage they would have at asking for “more voters and subscribers” … but I haven’t let that stop me from trying.

    I started this contest with 52 subscribers and only 2,000 monthly visits … and I knew it would be difficult for me to outperform some of these sites number wise … but that’s why the voting and judge votes are supposed to be based on creativity and effort … not the numbers.

    I can only speak for myself. I have worked very hard at this and truly want to EARN the title … not buy it … not cheat to get it … just hard work.

    If someone has found a way to cheat the system I believe Daniel will investigate it and they will be disqualified.

    I’ve seen some “interesting” jumps in some of the numbers … but again … I just can’t focus on that … just keep working away.

    We have Thanksgiving holiday this week so hardly anyone is working Thursday or Friday … so that’s been tough … but I’ll give it my all until the very end.

    Check out my site and if you feel I’ve earned the title … you might vote for me LOL #7 … *SmiLes* Suzanne

    @Rain, DBT has 15,000 RSS subscribers and over 6,000 daily unique visitors. On top of that the competitors are also encouraging their own readers to vote.

    Ergo, what is the problem with 499 votes?

  • Rain

    499 votes???????????????????????

    Someone’s stuffing the ballots to rig the competition in their favour. That’s why we never enter this cockamamie contests. You just can’t leave it up to your readers, huh?
