One of my biggest regrets of 2007 was not being able to attend Blog World Expo.
The reports that came out of BWE from thousands of bloggers were quite amazing. Rich networking, great teaching, showcases of services and tools for bloggers and much much more.
This year Blog World Expo is on again (20-21 September) in Las Vegas.
I’m hoping to attend this year (I’m 50/50 at this point as we’re waiting to see how our new baby settles before I travel again) as the list of people that I know who are attending is quite amazing. They’ve started compiling a list of speakers here. If I’m going I’ll be involved in at least one panel and probably another session.
I emailed the Rick Calvert CEO of BWE earlier in the week and asked him if they’d be willing to put up a couple of free passes to attend – he generously agreed.
The passes are worth $400 each – there are two of them to go to two separate winners.
So here’s how we’re going to give them away – it’s time for a commenting competition.
Before entering – you need to know that these passes do NOT include travel or accommodation they simply give you free access to the conference once you’re there. Please don’t enter if you’re not willing to cover your other expenses or be there as I’d love for someone to win them that are actually certain to use them!
- In comments below I’d like to invite you to leave a comment telling us why you’d like to attend Blog World Expo in 250 words or less.
- Rick and his team will select two comments that they think are deserving of winning. They’ll judge the winners based on your comments.
- This will run for one week from the time this post goes live. I’ll then close off comments and get Rick to select the winners.
Looking forward to reading your entries and the possibility of meeting you in Vegas later in the year!
update – entries for this competition are now closed and we’ll announce a winner shortly.
