Attention Midlands Women: Here’s Your Chance to Become a Blogger
Posted by: Jennifer Wilson, Public Relations Manager | November 11, 2013
West Columbia, S.C. – Lexington Medical Center is sponsoring a contest from October 18th to Nov. 27th to recruit additional bloggers for its Every Woman Blog. Women of all ages are invited to enter. Through the contest, the hospital plans to select five women from their community to be featured as permanent bloggers. Each month, their posts will appear on the EveryWomanBlog.com website. Each selected blogger will receive a $250 cash prize.
The Every Woman Blog has been active for more than two years, with nearly 30,000 visitors checking out posts written by local female bloggers who were contest winners two years ago. The blog has received several awards from leading healthcare organizations such as the Carolinas Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Society. Winners of the blog contest will join Brady Evans, Shannon Shull, Mary Pat Baldauf, Katie Austin, Elizabeth Webber Akre and Crissie Miller Kirby as featured bloggers at www.everywomanblog.com.
“Today, women bloggers, including ours, are some of the most influential communicators online. Women follow them because the stories they share are so relatable,” said Lexington Medical Center Public Relations Manager, Jennifer Wilson. “We’re excited to welcome new women bloggers and fresh perspectives to the Every Woman Blog.”
To enter the blogging contest, visit Lexington Medical Center’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/LexingtonMedical. Upload a video or post a short written statement on the Wall about why you would be a great blogger to represent and inspire women in the Midlands. Five women with the most persuasive, funny, touching or engaging posts will be selected to become a featured blogger on the Every Woman Blog.
Each featured blogger will write at least one post per month. The topics will vary greatly depending on the personalities of the bloggers and their daily experiences in the community. Visitors can expect some of the posts to be videos. The bloggers will also meet in person at “blogger reunions” to share ideas and brainstorm topics.
The Every Woman blog also features occasional guest bloggers from Lexington Medical Center’s medical staff and other clinicians. With Lexington Medical Center as the sponsor of the blog, readers can expect to find an abundance of helpful health information. For more information, visit www.EveryWomanBlog.com.
