lucky 7

The results from this year's Top 50 MLM Blogs Contest were announced yesterday, after a month's worth of voting.

Last year I didn't enter the contest but this year I decided to go for it, with no expectations other than to get some idea of how people were reacting to our blog and it's content.

I certainly learned a lot about myself from entering this blogging competition, and I thoroughly enjoyed competing in this year-end event.

How Did I Do?

I have to admit I was a bit nervous when I joined the contest.  Although I didn't have any real expectations, I also didn't want to embarrass myself.

When the results were announced, I was surprised to say the least.

So how did we do?

We finished 7th!

You can get the complete rankings and watch the Ann0uncement Video here (the actual results are announced at the 27 minute mark of the 50 mlm blogs image

The number 7 has been my lucky number since I was a kid and a HUGE Mickey Mantle fan, so it's appropriate that this is where I ranked in the contest!

Rosemary and I are so grateful to you, our readers for your support and kind wishes as we entered this contest.

Your votes and encouraging words have boosted us up and we are stoked to provide you with even better content and support in 2012!

So What's Next?

Now that the Top 5o MLM Blogging Contest is over, what's next for us here?

We've got lots of things in the fire, but here are a few:

1.  Experts Speak

The first installment of this unique blogging series was published yesterday, where I asked 18 Expert Bloggers the same question, “How Do You Come Up With Great Content Ideas For Your Blog?”

The reviews and comments on this post have been awesome and word has spread like fire on the social media platforms.

Looks like it's been very well received and we'll be planning on doing this on a regular basis.

Check out the first Experts Speak post here.

2.  Interviews

You guys really seemed to enjoy the interviews I did with incredible Part Time Top Bloggers Jane Sheeba of Problogging Success and Kristi Hines of

As the interviewer, I learned so much from these top bloggers and business owners, both working their magic part time.

I have extended interview requests to 2 other incredible Part Time bloggers and happily, both have accepted to do an interview.

Who are they?  You'll see! 🙂

Look for these in the near future.

3.  Guest Posts

I plan on writing more guest posts in the coming year.  I started this a couple of months ago as the next step to extending my reach and visibility.

Here are some of the guest posts I've published that you might have missed:

I urge you not only to check out these posts, but also spend some time on these incredible blogs and get to know the blog owners.

They are top notch bloggers and people, and I recommend them 100%.

I'll have 2 new giveaways for you in the very near future.

They'll be packaged in my brand new “Part Time Entrepreneur's Success Kit“.

      What a brilliant post. You should do a series! :)I did a sort of blogging for dummies over
      on one of the craft forums and I thought it was too simple for them, but the amount of
      emails I got asking questions just like what you addressed was unbelievable. As young
      people today we have grown up with computers, but it’s easy to forget that even people
      just a few years older have not! Really good post! 🙂

        Thank you! By the way, I edited out your Name because you only used Keywords. That’s not allowed here.

        I do offer Keywords after your name as part of my Comment Luv plugin.

        So for example, I could leave a comment under the name — Bob Clarke@Part Time Marketing

        Hope this clears things up. Looking forward to your next comment!

      Good work. I think you should have gotten a higher spot. But it’s an achievement just the same, don’t you think? Merry Christmas!

      • Bob

        Thanks, Kevin… we were “happy” with our result, but not satisfied. We will continue pushing out great content and helping others, and let’s see what happens next year.

        Merry Christmas to you,, as well!

    • Adrienne

      Great going Bob, I think that if you can make the top 10 then that in itself is a huge accomplishment. Personally, you should have been higher up the ladder but you outranked some really great bloggers so it’s well deserving.

      I’m looking forward to 2012. I see nothing but continued success and fabulous content you share with us here. I enjoy visiting your blog and I always seem to learn something new from you.

      I know that everything you touch will be worth us all showing up.

      Great going!

      • Bob

        Hi Adrienne!

        When we first entered, our goal was to learn about competing in contests. As we saw how things were going, we revised our goal to be in the Top 10. We were thrilled to meet this goal with the help of you and so many others. Thank you!

        We are also really excited about 2012 and what it brings. Onward and upward for all of us, Adrienne!

    • Donna Merrill
