Write and Win $170 in Prizes – January 2018

Here’s the best chance to make $100, $50 or $20 for yourself. Let me explain how.

I am giving away a $100, $50 or $20 in Amazon gift cards to the three people who will submit the best three articles. Read ahead to know what “best” means.

Now this is a small blog and I will not get many entries. So there you go. With a very small number of competitors comes a high chance of winning. This contest possibly has the best odds on the internet right now to make you some cash.

It is simple.

Write up something interesting, worthy to be put up on Awesci.com and wish for the best.

Submit an article

Rules

  • The last date for submission for this contest is 31st January.
  • Three of the “best” articles will be published on 1st February 2018, and the article with the greatest reach by 28th February 2018 will win. Share it away.
  • 2nd and 3rd places, determined by extent of reach will win $50 and $20 Amazon gift cards.
  • Only the last submission by each person will be considered.
  • If the contest receives 5 or less valid articles by 31st January 2018, the contest will be canceled for this month and your valid articles will be enrolled in the next month’s contest, waiting for up to a total of 5 or more articles to turn up. And so on.
  • Only valid articles will be considered. That means,
    1. An article would have to be at least 600 words in length.
    2. The exact topic of your article should not have been covered on Awesci before.
    3. It should not be ridden with grammatical or obviously factual errors.
    4. Should not be an outright copy of something else. The effort put into the article should show.
  • If I think your article may have a good chance and for some reason it is not valid, I will get in touch with you.
  • Use this link to submit or send a word file as an attachment to me at the email mentioned below.
  • Contact me at admin@awesci.com for any questions.

The best articles

The best three articles will be chosen based on these few criteria.

  • The presentation and clarity.
  • The article’s ability to induce “mindblow” – more the better.
  • The extent of research, diversity and reliability of sources used for information and the length of the article – Longer and denser are better.
  • Including interesting links, pictures, figures, videos, sounds clips etc. would work in your favor.

For ideas and inspiration:

If this is a success I will consider doing it again.

The Science of Blogging Better – for Newbie Bloggers

By Anupum Pant

The following is not a cheat sheet to double visitors, conversions or rank better on search engines. Like AweSci’s tagline says, this article is meant for “being a better person through Science”.

Even though I’m doing good with Google search results, I’m not much of an SEO enthusiast. I blog because I love to do it. I don’t like to craft posts to trap clicks from a search engines. I write about things that really interest me, and not necessarily about the things that are most searched.

However, I don’t mind making a few logical alterations to my style, that would NOT change the kind of articles I really want to write, and at the same time would add better value to people reading it. My aim would be to write for that person, who would search for something on Google, would end up here, and thank me for giving him/her the answers he/she was searching for. That would make me a better person.

The science of it

Blogging gurus will tell you to “produce quality content”. To break down the meaning of “quality content” in a detailed way is impossible in a single article. However, here are some of the most important things that will turn your content into “quality content”. The two major studies I discuss here are no less than full-blown psychological studies (is the reason I put it in the Psychology section) – They don’t mention the hard science separately, but they essentially deal with the psychology of your readers.

While going through a blogging guru’s blog yesterday, I noted the following interesting things that can clearly help you newbie bloggers stand out and create real value on the internet. And I think it is worth knowing. For millions of people out there looking to start a blog, or the ones have just started blogging, a careful initial look at “Blogging” with the magnifying glass of science would definitely make them better people on the internet. That, I think, should be anyone’s aim with a blog. So, here is the basic science of blogging better – Continue reading The Science of Blogging Better – for Newbie Bloggers
