Attention Midlands Women: Here’s Your Chance to Become a Blogger

Lexington Medical Center is sponsoring a contest between now and July 29th to recruit bloggers for its new Every Woman Blog. Women of all ages are invited to enter. Through the contest, the hospital plans to select eight women from our community to be featured as permanent bloggers. Each month, their posts will appear on the website. Each selected blogger will receive a $250 cash prize.

“Women thrive on exchanging ideas and connecting with one another,” said Lexington Medical Center Public Relations Manager Jennifer Wilson. “Whether it’s advice on work-life balance, job hunting, movies, shopping or cooking, they love to learn from one another.” Through the Every Woman Blog, Lexington Medical Center wants to create an environment where women in the Midlands can learn from and share with one another.

In addition to bloggers chosen in the contest, guest bloggers will also be selected from Lexington Medical Center’s medical staff and employees. With Lexington Medical Center as the sponsor of the blog, readers can expect to find an abundance of helpful health information.

To enter the blogging contest, visit Lexington Medical Center’s Facebook page at Upload a video or post a short written statement on the Wall about why you would be a great blogger to represent and inspire women in the Midlands. Eight women with the most persuasive, funny, touching or engaging posts will be selected to become a featured blogger on the Every Woman Blog.

Each featured blogger will write at least one post per month. The topics will vary greatly, depending on the personalities of the bloggers and their daily experiences in the community. Visitors can expect some of the posts to be videos. The bloggers will also meet in person at “blogger brunches” to share ideas and brainstorm topics.

Lexington Medical Center’s Every Woman Blog will serve as an essential resource for women to share views, experiences and tips. Meantime, -men- are welcome to read the blog and submit their comments, too! For more information, visit
