Win a Full #BlogHer 2011 Sponsorship From Salsa Sensations!

Conferences, as we all know, can get a little pricey especially when paying our own way. From my own observations, it usually takes one conference whether sponsored or not to get your foot in the door of continuously being sponsored by brands to attend future conferences (if your blog is pretty established). It only takes a little strategic networking and BlogHer is usually the best place to start. Thousands of bloggers and hundreds of brands converge at BlogHer, so it is an great avenue to meet other bloggers, learn some new blogging techniques (if you’re a new blogger), and network with brands to help grow your blog.

Quite a few brands are giving away BlogHer 2011 sponsorships through giveaways and contests. While I don’t totally agree with some of the tactics and hoops bloggers have to go through in entering, I do believe in having the opportunity to attend a conference that they may not have been able to attend otherwise. I also dig contests based on creativity. Salsa Sensations is giving one creative blogger the chance to attend the BlogHer 2011 conference in sunny San Diego, California! Salsa Sensations is not looking for the biggest or the best, they’re simply looking for people who love to blog and just want to learn how to better their blog by attending BlogHer. Any blogger can enter!

The winner will receive:

– A full conference pass to BlogHer ’11 in sunny San Diego, California (Thursday, August 5 – Saturday, August 6, 2011)
– A 3-night stay at the San Diego Marriott Hotel and Marina, the host hotel for the conference
– Compensation for airfare to/from BlogHer up to $500
– Compensation for meals and ground transportation up to $200
– A welcome package including plenty of Salsa Sensations
– Approximate total prize value – $2,000

Create at least two different posts about anything related to Salsa Sensations – talk about the product, talk about the contest, share a recipe – whatever works for you!

3. Be social! Share your blog posts, your video entry, and information about Salsa Sensations with your social networks throughout the duration of the contest.
