I myself have decided to join the contest and this is one of the first steps in entering the contest (write a post on your own blog promoting the contest).
The second step is to actually write a high quality guest post on the BlogEngage blog and make sure it is between 450 and 1000 words.
The quality, style of your post and interaction/comments left on your guest article will help determine who will be the top 3 winners of the Guest Blogger contest.
BlogEngage has been one of my favorite blogging communities for a while, and Brian just recently upgraded the messaging system which allows you to network and communicate with other users in the system more easily.
In addition, BlogEngage now has opened up registration to any blogger wanting to get their articles noticed and join a fantastic network of bloggers. There is no more invitation only, so I encourage you to register for BlogEngage now and let them know that I sent you.
By the way, here is a list of the contest sponsors and the prizes:
