Meet Fogs Authors - Part 2
Today we want to introduce you to the second batch of our featured contributors and encourage you to check out and comment on their articles.
My name is Yogini, aka qsera, and I provide freelance article writing services at rock bottom prices. I would like to thank Fogs.com for the wonderful contest they held a couple of months ago. I am a proud winner of that contest and have been awarded a cash prize of USD $50. Here is the link to my winning article, which is live on fogs: http://www.fogs.com/articles/top-10-best-tanks-in-the-second-world-war-1521
I can provide such unique articles for your websites/blogs too. Simply drop a mail at email@example.com and I will be more than happy to assist you. Once again thank you, Fogs and I will be eagerly waiting for your new contests :)
I am a young Romanian writer who's had the chance to be one of the winners of your contest, registered as "Winterdawn". Frankly, I didn't expect to get there!
I work as a music journalist and freelance writer. My interest have always been on the unusual, mysterious, "wild side": mythologies, esoterism, subcultures, unpopular countries, and heavy metal music. When I came across the article contest, I knew I had to have my say and post an entry - but what would the topic be?... I was convinced that it had to be something mainstream, popular, in order to draw attention. Nevertheless - I did what I knew best, I wrote about one niche topic. It was mainly an attempt to share the wonderful impressions of a metal festival and to shatter some misconceptions regarding this genre. I put it there and forgot about it. As I was traveling at that time, I couldn't invest time in promoting it online, although I would have wanted.
Somehow, I made it to one nice spot in the final chart! My thoughts are that it's truly nice to be able to write about things you appreciate, to offer new information and insight, and to actually win something out of it! If I'll have the chance to contribute again, I will not hesitate. In fact, next time I will do it with even more courage!
My name is Shubhajyoti Sengupta, I’m a freelance writer, quite curious about the world surrounding my existence. My heart and soul belong to a city named Kolkata, India, which has its own, unique magical essence. Though I am not a native English speaker, my city being the capital of India during the British Rule, carries a flavor of London and many other European cities like Paris, Rome or Berlin. Writing is my passion and the contest held at Fogs provided me with the perfect window through which I could get a glimpse of the entire world. Wining the contest was my first international recognition and I am looking forward to work for various creative projects in Europe in the future.

Meet Fogs Authors - Part 1
The Best Article Contest is long behind us. This event deserves a reminder, though, since it involved hundreds of people from all over the world, of which as many as 100 received cash prizes. However, being published and winning a contest at Fogs is worth more than $150. Each competitor became a real-life contributor to the website, and his work has been exposed to millions of readers. For some authors it was their first step towards professional writing for a wider audience.
Today we want to introduce you to some of the featured authors and to encourage you to check out and comment on their articles. We received so many testimonial messages from the participants of the contest that we decided to put them on in smaller batches, once a week.
I’m Chowdhury Arif Mahmud from Bangladesh. My Fogs ID is camahmud. I won a cash prize of 150$ in a recent article contest at Fogs.com. It is a great place to show your writing potential, and at the same time it gives you this huge opportunity to earn by using Google Adsence.
I’m writing for Fogs with pleasure and I am earning money. If you have good writing skills, patience and passion, you can join it too. Fogs.com is a reliable website. Here is the link to my prize winning article: http://www.fogs.com/articles/10-strangest-hobbies-ever-1533
I received the cash reward for the Best Article Competition and I must say I really appreciated it, and it really made me happy, as this was the first time I got to win something on-line. Participating in the competition was pure pleasure. I think the idea to gather writers from across the globe and give them a platform to compete was truly a great one.
I would also like to use this opportunity to give a big thank you to the entire members and crew at fogs.com. The whole thing was so cool! I definitely will be adding more content soon.
Hi writers, this is Authorglo all the way from Uganda in East Africa. Anybody ever heard of Uganda? Or to say it better, can anything good come out of Uganda? The writing contest on Fogs was a good one for me indeed. I learnt about the contest 3 days before the deadline so I rushed to put something together. I felt so honored to be among the top 100. This feeling sparked a writing fire in me that had been quenched by other people’s dogma. Since then, I feel like even the tiniest thing can be a topic for a passionate writer and could generate a lot of traffic. I have not yet posted again, but am putting together and polishing some new work. After reading what fellow contestants who were better than me had written, I picked some ideas on how to be a little smarter and catchy in my writing so I am taking my time. Long Live Fogs!!!
Oh wait a minute…I am not done yet. I got my cash prize of $50 two weeks ago and I bought myself something I had desired for some time - beautiful crafts shoes. Whenever I look at them, I remember Fogs.
It was about a month and a half ago when I happened to stumble upon a brand new website when I was surfing the internet.The name of the website is Fogs.com.They started an article writing competition - all you had to do was register and then submit your writing. Well, I entered the contest the same day I found out about it, because the moment I saw this website, I knew it would become a great one. It turned out I won a $50 cash prize and they sent it directly to my PayPal account. Fogs.com also has a revenue sharing program for their authors. I will write more articles and enter any upcoming article writing contests at Fogs.com, because they rock!
You can also become our editor!

'The world should be more optimistic' - let’s hear from the Best Article Contest winner
The two articles written by Professor Ade Subandi took the contest by storm. Our winner was kind enough to agree to an interview. Treat this as a sneak preview of more author's testimonials to come!
Fogs: Could you tell us a few words about yourself? What do you do, what are your passions?
Ade Subandi: I am an agriculture professor at one of the major universities in Indonesia. My work is my passion. And well, I do like writing. At first I didn't really think I could even make it to the top ten in the competition, but well, it turned out I won!
Fogs: How did you find out about the contest? Why did you decide to participate?
Ade Subandi: I saw the invitation when I was browsing either through GetAcoder or Elance, I don't remember correctly. I took part in the contest because I wanted to express myself, and invite people to become aware of nature, teach them how to preserve, conserve, and maintain the environment. Also, I tried to encourage the world to be more optimistic. Another issue I wanted to draw attention to was the necessity of proper food management: the importance of balanced food production, developing new kinds of food, and food shortage in some parts of the world.
Fogs: How did you manage to get so many people involved to comment on your articles?
Ade Subandi: Basically, I invited all my friends from all over the world to help me: my colleagues at Melbourne University, Dhaka University and others from Malaysia, Singapore, members of UNESCO in Bangladesh, friends at COMSATS and COMSTECH institutes of Pakistan, friends in Dubai, in Palestine (Al-Qud, Annajah, and Berziet Universities), in Iran, in Egypt (al-Azhar, Cairo, Suez Canal and Assiut Universities), the management team of ISESCO in Morocco and Tehran, and Islamic Universities in Indonesia, and of course all the students in my home university in Bandung. Unfortunately, the contest fell on a holiday months, so only a small number of students was at the campus at that time. If the competition had run during academic year, I am sure it would have been easier for me to get more views.
Fogs: How has winning in the contest changed your life?
Ade Subandi: Thanks to the contest I am now recognized as a skillful writer by the whole academia at my university. I even received a Letter of Appreciation from the rector. But I’m not resting on my laurels - I definitely want to enhance my writing abilities.
Stay tuned - more testimonials coming soon!

And that’s not all! We also received some interesting news from our best of the best author - Mr. Subandi, a lecturer of Agricultural Sciences from Indonesia. His scientific articles were voted the first two most popular ones in the contest. Mr. Subandi informed us about great events initiated by his participation and success in Fogs competition. He managed to get his students and other professors involved in a vivid discussion on Fogs - just have a look at the number of comments his articles received... No wonder his achievements in the competition were noted and appreciated in his local environment. How do you like the banner which congratulated him on his success, hanged in the auditorium hall of the university he works at?
The above events have inspired and encouraged us to undertake a new initiative, addressed to all the contest winners. We are giving them a unique chance to present themselves on Fogs once again - this time as featured, winning authors of the Best Article Competition.
