Win Dinner with ProBlogger and Special Guests at Blog World Expo 2009

Posted By Lara Kulpa 13th of October 2009 General 0 Comments

OK – this is a competition that is only for those attending Blog World Expo (please don’t comment below if you’re not attending). I know that excludes most readers but I hope we can include everyone a little by posting some pictures of the event.

The prize is a free dinner with me and some of my blogging buddies at BWE at the lovely Fiamma Trattoria and Bar** in Vegas.

I’m still confirming which other guests are coming but we have 3 spots open to ProBlogger readers – hence this competition.

Contest Rules

1. You must be attending Blog World Expo 2009 in Las Vegas, NV.
2. You must be available for dinner on Wednesday night, October 14th at 6pm. We cannot change the scheduled time or modify to suit anyone’s schedules.
3. You must provide your own transportation to and from the event.
4. Since we will need to place your name on a guest list, you will need to provide identification at the door upon arrival.
5. To enter, simply leave a comment below – make sure to use your REAL name and your most often checked email address in the name and email fields. Lara will do the draw using random.org on Tuesday at 4pm Eastern Time (NY, USA) and will contact the (3) winners privately via email. Please then confirm receipt of the email before 8pm ET.

*Please don’t leave a comment if you’re NOT available to attend the dinner. Because we’re running on very short notice, we need to keep this process as streamlined as possible, and weeding through comments wouldn’t help! Thanks for understanding!

** Dinner graciously provided by Fiamma Trattoria and Bar at MGM Grand @TasteMGMGrand.

  20. Choose an author as you choose a friend.

  21. Great idea! I would love to meet you for dinner. What a perfect kick-off to a great event. Thanks in advance. ::winks::

  22. I would be so tickled to win this. Was about to make my list of who I want to meet while there and you & Chris Brogan are on that list.

    I won a pass from Blog World to attend the event & this would be so unbelievably awesome!!

    I’m a social media consultant & in the beginning stages of establishing myself as a thought leader/pioneer for the speech impaired using social media to communicate, improve quality of life, get a job, be an entrepreneur . . . as the way in which we communicate has shifted in such a huge way to include the speech impaired (including my 8 yr old daughter) like they have never been included before! Life changing!

    WooHoo & Thanks for holding this contest! Y’all Rock!

  23. This is great news! Speaking personally and as one who has to cross the Pacific to get to these events, I have been wishing for the past couple of years I could attend both. Really looking forward to a new media immersion experience in Oct 09. Rock on!

  24. I would move my flight to get there by 6pm. It would be great to meet you.

  25. _______ Sorry, I’m blank….but I still wouldn’t mind a free meal. :)

  26. Would love to see you for dinner. :)

  27. Sounds so attractive, gl.

    Looking forward to winning the Contest!

  32. I hope I win!

  33. It will be a pleasure to be there !

  34. Pardon the use of such an annoying acronym, but OMG! There are few things in this world I would appreciate more than a chance to sit down with Darren. I’ve derived more value and encouragement from problogger.net than from any other website.

    My wife and I co-operate on our blog business, and with Problogger’s help we’ve built it into our second income. Adsense is one revenue stream, but its primary stream is an affiliate-like relationship with a larger blog network. We attribute a lot of what we’ve accomplished to Problogger.

    I guess that’s enough gushing for now…

    OK, maybe a bit more: I LOVE PROBLOGGER!!!

    (I even love the book)

  35. If I win, I’ll change my flight to be there in time for dinner! So looking forward to blog world.

  36. My husband (Tim Schroeder) and I are attending the Blog World Expo and we would love the opportunity to join you for dinner and finally meet you.

    I am finding your ebook very helpful and I am enjoying being apart of ProBlogger.com. Thanks for the great resources.

  37. I never win anything but I’m always willing to try. Count me in!

  38. Wow I would love a chance to Learn from the best. I am a newbe and thank of a better way to start. I am driving to blogworld from Michigan and will arrive shortly. This will be a life changing event.

  39. Okay gang! Comments closed – I’ll be emailing the winners shortly!
