And the Blog Brawl 4 Round 1 winners are…

The following blogs have made it to Round 2 — that means these folks have the Thanksgiving holiday to submit their entries for the next round, “1000 Words.”

To refresh: They need to…

Publish a photoblog post. (It can have some words, of course, but the photo has to be the focus.) The photo must have been taken no earlier than November 19, 2009. Send us the URL for the post.

Submission deadline: 11:59 p.m., Tuesday, December 1.

Then what: Our panel of photographer judges will rate those photos and pick the four best to go on to Round 4. (Oh noes! It’s not a popularity contest!) We’ll announce those picks on Friday, December 4. And yes, everyone will get to see all the entries.

And now, the winners:

  • Arlington Real Estate News
  • The Phoenix Real Estate Guy
  • The Arlington Dirt
  • Sarah Stelmok
  • The Realtor’s Toolbox
  • The Real Estate Zebra
  • Wolkia
  • Modern Homes Portland

Congrats to you folks, and lemme say this: It was pretty close, especially considering almost 800 votes were cast. So those who didn’t make it, you still impressed a lot of readers!

You eight: Get snapping!

    Great competition and the winners are certainly deserving.

    Wow, 800 votes? My post had only 30 pageviews… so I guess that I will have to start preparing for next year, darn it!

  2. Doug – me too. Exactly 30! I guess I just need to focus on my neck of the woods.

  3. Doug Francis says:

    @Jennifer – let’s get together for a writers-workshop at the next RE BarCamp!

  4. Tina Merritt says:

    photo blogging is way out of my comfort zone….off to tackle that mountain!

  5. Jay Thompson says:

    Sooooo…. does the photo blog entry have to be ONE photo, or can it be a “collection” of photos?

  6. One post with several photos is A-OK, as long as the text is limited to brief captions.

  7. How many words are we talkin, here? I need to know just how much I am going to have to distill my wit and intelligence. ;-)

  8. @Zebra: Short captions is all. Pithy comments to put the photos in context. Check out Lovely Listing for examples. The photo should carry the story. So we’re talking something like 180 proof. ;-)

  9. Okay, you guys are stressing me out with all these questions! I just took a photo. I didn’t realize it would be so involoved! Ack!
