Blogging Contest Judges Team

Meet The Traffic Generation Contest Judges Team

It has been a crazy week here! Today, I was working on getting the results from our Judging team, and we’ve finally got all the results from 6 independent judges (they are not part of sponsoring or organizing the traffic generation blogging contest), and before we pronounce the winners, we would like to mention the Judging Team.

The Judges have told me they found interesting traffic generation resources in the contest entries. Two of them actually shared these interesting articles on their blogs, along with their views and thoughts about it. Alex Whalley published The Jury’s Still Out on Traffic Generation, and Ingrid Abboud published her Traffic Generation Showdown. It was really nice of them to share their thoughts about the entries.

Who are the Judges?

    Do you have a link to the results for this contest handy?

    I have looked around for them and apparently overlooked it.

    Also, please do more of these in the future as I would like to enter one of these at some point.

    Hi Hesham,

    Thanks for putting faces to the judges. I had no idea who was judging until now. Just wanted to say a special thanks to you, the sponsors and of course the lovely judges!

    Everyone’s time and commitment to seeing this contest run smoothly was awesome. It really is quite amazing the impact a small group of people can have on a large community.

    Your generosity is overwhelming and most appreciated.

    All the best. 🙂

    Thanks for the shout out Hesham.

    It was honestly a pleasure, and I am sure I speak for all of the judges when I say that it was good to read so many incredible posts. I learnt a lot actually , so everyone won regardless!

    Good luck to all

    Hey Hesham,
    Great of you to have featured the judges here. Very thoughtful. Being one of them I know the hard work and time that went into rating each post fairly and so I say thanks to my fellow judges and another thanks to you for the opportunity to take part in this.

    There are 2 new faces here so I look forward to getting to know them and their work.

    This was a great experience and I know I learned a lot of new things on traffic generation from all the posts that were written.

    May the best blogger(s) win.

    Cheers Hesham for all that you do. Ishta! 😉

    Hi Hesham,

    great team of judges for Traffic Generation Contest, love to follow them

    thank for sharing details of Judges

  • James Pruitt May 2, 2011, 4:56 am

    I want to personally add my thanks to the judges too. you guys do a lot of really hard work, and make some tough decisions usually without getting nearly enough credit. Thanks for sharing this Hesham. Once again you had an amazing contest, and even without winning anything it is always worth entering.

  • Brankica May 2, 2011, 4:45 am

    Hey Hesham, I love that you featured the judges here. Just wanna say that I see three “new” faces here, people I haven’t seen before so I am going to add them to my Google Reader now. After reading Kristi’s new post few hours ago, I got totally addicted to the reader, lol.

    Anyway, nice to see them all here and glad to see this blog back on track again (I hope you resolved server problems).

    Hope everyone have a great week!

    • Hesham May 2, 2011, 4:51 am

      Hey Brankica, it’s the least I can do!

      We’ve solved a few problems and server is stable now, hopefully we will not face down time again, I actually had a magnificent weekend behind my laptop, the last place I planned to be 🙂

      See you around tomorrow 😉
