I’m going, no matter what. But you can help me get there cheaper. As in, for free.
Of course, so would a lot of other writers. So RMN created a contest: We’d each send our best summertime tip and then the readers would vote for their favorites.
That’s where you come in. Go to http://theinsider.retailmenot.com/blogher and look under the red-carpet illustration for the words “click here to vote.” Click and then look for my tip; it’s about midway down the list and, naturally, it’s got a touch of smartassery humor about it. The topic is “6 reasons the garden hose is your summertime friend.”
If you think my tip is a keeper, say so by voting for it. You can vote only once. The deadline is midnight Sunday, June 26.
If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, could you ask your friends to weigh in as well?
What’s in it for you, besides my gratitude? BlogHer swag, of course. A lot of companies offer free samples and other goodies. My daughter got so many freebies at BlogHer 2010 that she mailed me a big box of stuff. These turned into giveaways like the Eucerin package, the “better living through chemistry” package and “Who makes this stuff up?” package.
I’m picturing more such giveaways when I return. Maybe they’ll even be handing out those bacon lollipops.
