The 2nd eChinacities Blog Contest: See Prize Winners & Vote for Readers’ Choice [Closed]
Oct 17, 2013 By eChinacities.com

Last May, we held the first ever blog contest on our site and were overwhelmed by the level of participation and quality of blogs from our talented and vocal community of readers. And so, we decided to launch a second contest to encourage and inspire all of those with a story to tell. All blogs posted in the Community Blog section on our site from July 17 to September 30 were automatically entered into the competition and once again we saw a wonderful and entertaining collection of blogs, ranging in topic from summer travel tips to opinions on expat life to everything in between.
