Suzanne Franco The Next Blogging Idol

Blogger and John Chow dot Com reader, Suzanne Franco, needs your help to become the next Blogging Idol. Currently, she is in 10th place.

Blogging Idol is the creation of Daily Blog Tips. The competition runs from November 1st until November 30th. During that period, 7 points will be awarded to the competitors, on the following way:

  • 1 point to the competitor with the highest increase on the number of RSS subscribers
  • 3 points to the competitors (one for each) with the highest number of votes on the open voting session
  • 3 points awarded by a panel of judges

Right now, the competition is in the RSS portion. The voting portion will start next week. You can help Suzanne win the RSS race by subscribing to her blog.

Suzanne was extremely creative in her pursuit of the Blogging Idol title. She sent me the below video plea as part of her roundup to gain guru support. Anyone that is willing to go this far to get my attention has my vote!

    Seems like John is a better guy than I thought πŸ˜€ Congrats on getting yourself supported by John Chow πŸ˜€


  19. BusinessX says:

    This shows what chutzpah will get you. How many other Blogging Idols could have requested John Chow’s help? Plus Suzanne did it in a unique, don’t ignore me manner; yet, not overly aggressive either. Actually, her sincere charm helped sell this I am sure.

    You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. You don’t receive because you don’t ask.

  20. Γ–nder says:

    Suzanne i am with you.

  21. Γ–nder says:

  23. MP4 says:

    1. haha, am I too late with my video?

  24. Sirko says:

  25. Monty says:

  28. shun2u says:

  29. Audrey says:

    Good luck Suzanne! Will be supporting you too. Like your blog.

    1. Audrey ~ Thanks! I can’t believe you’re in Escondido … my family is all in Carlsbad/Oceanside … and I moved to Texas from Bonsall 7 years ago. I’m “home” a few times a year … so stay in touch! *huGs* Suzanne

  30. Wish you good luck Suzanne!

    1. Wow! You have a lot of great information on your site … did you write all of that content? Do you have a blog?

  31. That was a good video.

    She’s probably going to win now that you openly support her!

  32. Great Suzanne, keep up the good work!

    1. Checked out your site … I was wondering what is that ad block under the “welcome” title? Thanks! S

  33. MelodyN says:

    Well, your support alone should help catapult her to the top..Good luck, and interesting marketing–blog idol eh?

    1. Melody ~ I must say … you are quite a fascinating young woman! Very bright, ambitious, and accomplished. Let me know how your focus group works out … I want to try those daily exercised myself actually. Great post. *SmiLes* Suzanne
      P.S. Leads to laughing! LOL

    ” Suzanne Franco ~ the Newest Blogging Idol? ”
    Now we have Blogging Idol and if American Idol offered you the same entry, I’d vote twice for each one? You deserve to WIN for 2008 and in 2009 we can all vote for another entrant because every one of us deserves a chance. Good Luck Suzanne.

  35. highfx says:

    I didn’t bother to watch the video. Begging to be #1? What kind of a contest is it? What’s the value of being #1 if you didn’t really earn it?


    1. Kurt ~ That’s funny! I’m certain you don’t follow me or my blog … because if you did … you would know what I said, and more importantly, why I did the videos. I did them to get my readers involved and to have some fun with it. I wanted to show my readers how to think outside the box and to play a little too. I’m not #1 in the RSS subscription portion of the contest … sooooo … guess we’ll just see how it plays out. I certainly respect your opinion … *SmiLes* Suzanne

      P.S. Unless of course you really DID think it was clever and you’re just hoping to create a bit of controversy and hope for some traffic πŸ˜‰ Nice one! LOL

      P.S.S. Enjoyed your site
