SINGAPORE, 11 February 2014 – LemonSqueeziy has announced its participation in the annual RP Blogger’s Challenge 2014 today. This is the third time this event will be running for Republic Polytechnic’s (RP) module M312, Writing for Digital Media. As part of the module’s efforts to equip its students with the essential skills of a professional Blogger, 19 teams have been formed across the cohort to compete in the competition.

The Bloggers’ Challenge aims to encourage excellence in Digital Writing for the participants. The teams will finally come head to head on 18th of February next week to vie for the position of Champion. Participants stand to win a grand prize of S$300 worth of book vouchers.

The judging panel will feature popular bloggers like motorsports blogger and photojournalist Cheryl Tay, Bryan Choo of Smart Local and Alfred Siew of Tech Goondu.

LemonSqueeziy will be one of the 19 blogs that will be food for critique by the panel of judges. Known for its niche theme of providing tips and tricks to the ever popular youths aged between 13 – 21, Lemonsqueeziy has survived various challenges such as producing original and unique content to make it to where it is today.

Just last week, the LemonSqueeziy team sought the help of a consultant, Vivian Ng Hui San, to critique their blog. “If their ideas are written appropriately, they stand a chance to attract a lot of readers and win this competition,” said the consultant. Ms Ng, an RP student and also Content Provider for blog Hungry Cheapskates, has provided the team with advice ranging from the blog’s layout to the Byline of each article.

“After they heeded my advice and did the necessary steps to improve their blog, the changes have definitely improved the whole look and feel because it’s more suited to their theme,” the consultant added. “It makes the blog more user friendly and looks more pleasant on the eyes.”
