Learning comes by doing. Whoever originally came up with that line is spot on. In the case of Blog Engage and the guest blogging contest, lessons I’ve already learned in the past were further reinforced.
1. A contest may be a contest, but winning isn’t all there is to it.
2. In the blogging world, shyness (or pride, for that matter) will take you nowhere.
3. A community can help you expand your reach farther than you can ever imagine.
