Win the Ultimate Blogger’s Kit valued at $6,000 with Shoebox
August 17, 2016 By Darren Rowse
What is it about your blog (or blogging) that inspires you?
Shoebox Timeline and ProBlogger want you to share a story about what inspires you to blog. Our event partner Shoebox Timeline invites you to enter for a chance to win the Ultimate Blogger Kit. Entry is open to Australian-based bloggers and influencers by publishing a blog post about your blogging inspo.
That could be any manner of things. Like:
- what inspires you to blog?
- what inspires your blogging?
- what about your blog inspires you?
- what is the inspiration behind your blog?
You don’t need to answer all of these questions – just pick a theme that you feel passionate about sharing with your audience and make sure the focus of your blog post is your inspiration – let your personality shine through!
As part of your blog post we want you to set up a timeline and build a slideshow using an awesome new photo sharing platform called Shoebox, and embed the slideshow into your blog post. Darren has made his own Shoebox Timeline slideshow which you can watch here/below.
What is Shoebox Timeline?
Shoebox Timeline allows you to store your photos and videos privately, order them chronologically on timelines and sort them into event folders. You can choose who can see your timelines, event folders and you can even invite others to collaborate with you (perfect for sharing images from an event with others at the same event, for example).
An exciting feature for bloggers is the ability to create beautiful slideshows within your Shoebox Timeline account and then share them on social media and embed them in your blog posts. For example, you can upload all the photos in your post as a video to Facebook to promote your blog post.
As a major supporter of ProBlogger, Shoebox Timeline and The Good Guys are sponsoring the Ultimate Blogger Kit prize pool. The winner takes home the Ultimate Blogger Kit, valued at $6,000. The 9 runners up will each receive a $100 Good Guys gift voucher.
Blog posts fulfilling the brief must be live and entries submitted by 11.59pm on 5 September 2016.
The 10 finalists will be announced on 7 September 2016 via email and on the ProBlogger website.
The winner will be announced at the ProBlogger event on Saturday 10 September 2016.

How to Enter
- Sign up to create your Shoebox account here.
- Set up a timeline on Shoebox – incorporating visual and graphic images, and/or videos, that will help enhance your blog post – build a slideshow to pull these elements together (slideshows should be between 10-30 slides long). An imaginative slideshow will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.
- Publish a blog post (min 400 words) around what inspires you to blog – we are looking for posts that are original, relevant and are of merit. We want your readers to love your post as much as we will. Use Shoebox to create a dynamic visual element to your blog post.
- Complete the entry form with your contact details and the URL of your blog post
- Share your blog post on social media! Tag your social media with @shoeboxtimeline and #PBEVENT. (Tip: video is getting great reach on Facebook at the moment so you might want to download your slideshow and upload it onto Facebook with a link to your blog post!)
