Guest Blogger Friday Contest

In August this year I began "Guest Blogger Friday". This has been a great addition to the "Some Assembly Required Blog", and we have all been treated to some fantastic posts on topics relating to business development, networking, sales, public relations, marketing and other business themes.

In an effort to say "Thank You" to all the guest bloggers, and to re-introduce new readers to their great posts, I am going to hold a contest.

Please review the below "Guest Blogs" and vote for your favorite post. You can vote in the comment area of this post, or send me an email at To vote you must fill in your name (no anonymous comments), and you can only vote once (honor system!!!).

Voting will take place from now until January 1, 2006, and I will link to this post every Friday remaining in December (reminding everyone to vote) rather than having a guest blogger. The winner will be announced the first Friday of the new year.

"Guest Blogger Friday" will resume the second Friday in January 2006. I will need lots on new "Guest Bloggers" from the readers of this blog, so start thinking about what you will contribute in 2006!!!

The winning "Guest Blogger" will receive a $50 gift card from Quick Gifts (, where they can select a top retailer to redeem their prize. This is a non-scientific poll, and I reserve the right not count any suspicious votes, all rights reserved, final decision is mine to make, blah, blah blah.
