And the winnners are…..

After our hunt for two new SEO Chicks, more entries than we could shake a stick at, 5 blogposts published and voted for , we can now finally reveal the winners of the blogging competition (and on our brand spanking NEW website none the less). It was a close call, and opinions were split, there were only a few votes between the second and third ‘most voted for’ blogpost! A big thanks to everyone who participated and entered the blogging competition,and last but not least, a big thank you to everyone who voted for the blogposts!

Drumroll……………………..and the winners of the blogging compeition are:

Entry #1 – Being Anonymous which received 47 votes (21% of the total votes).

    Congratulations, Sarah and Nichola! I’m looking forward to reading more from you both. Oh, and also, the new site design looks great!

  3. Julie Joyce says:

    Obviously the world hates Americans.

  4. Sarah says:

    Really can’t say how chuffed I am, I told Lisa about my happy dance when I knew my entry was being published, it’s going to be a happy kareoke round the living room tonight, with wine and terrys chocolate orange!

  5. Lisa Myers says:

    YAY! Well done girls! And welcome. Wish we all lived a bit closer to eachother so we could meet in a pub and celebrate!

    @Julie, what photo is that of you? That picture is nearly as old as you ;p Liking the t-shirt.

  6. You guys rock! I mean, *ALL* the blog posts were fantabuloso but these were clearly the public favs!

    All the bloggers did a great job and everyone – winners and losers – should be proud!

  7. The new site looks great ladies :)

  8. Julie Joyce says:

    That photo was from the Seattle trip where we first unveiled the blog and made lots of jokes about Ciaran Norris. But yes, I rarely comment anywhere so I was shocked to see it too. I’ll change it to the one of me when I married Joe Strummer.

  9. I am actually overwhelmed. Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Sarah and I have already bonded over the fact we’re both Northern lasses!

    All of the entries were of such a high standard it’s a real honour to be one of the winners.

    I’m celebrating tonight and that’s for sure!

  10. Diane says:

    Fab stuff! Look forward to reading in the future!

    PS: Winnner? How many Ns?

  11. Julie Joyce says:

    If you’re both Northern please get some video so I can hear you say things like mofer instead of mother. Being a Southern American, I just say mama.

  12. Sarah says:

    Sorry Julie, I don’t have a northern accent at all, moved away when I was quite young so I only get a little bit northern when talking to other northerners…although you’ll get to hear for yourself on search cowboys next week

  13. Jon Henshaw says:

    New site is hot! Love the clean design and header illustration!

  14. Chris M says:

  19. Feli Betzl says:

    Well done, girls… I’m very envious, as I’ve started writing a blog post but had too much work on to finish it and submit it on time. Will look forward to your first posts!

  20. Clare Brace says:

    Congratulations Ladies.

    Thank you all for providing me with the inspiration to push my career further and perhaps one day also become an SEOChick myself.

    Looking forward to your posts.
