Win a $100 credit at SCOTTEVEST!
Normally when I run a contest on my site, I am approached by some company who is interested in giving something away. If I think the product will be of interest to my readers, I’ll go with it. For the first time, I am running a contest that was my idea. I approached Scott Jordan of SCOTTEVEST about running a contest on my site. I’ve hearing about SCOTTEVEST for a long time now online. Many of my favorite podcasters wear SCOTTEVEST products, they are a very entrepreneurial company with a very visible founder, and Scott is personally very active on social media. I found everything about the company appealing and, to be really honest, it was a company I wanted to be associated with in some way.
What is so special about a SCOTTEVEST? In a nutshell….pockets. Lots and lots of pockets. But it isn’t just having a lot of pockets, it is the fact that it doesn’t look like you have a lot of pockets! The gear is designed for the serious traveler or someone who carries around a lot of gadgets (both of which I qualify under). SCOTTEVEST is currently running a promotion with travel writer Rolff Potts where he is taking a 40 day trip around with the world with no luggage; only his SCOTTEVEST. (more…)
I’ll be speaking at Blog World 2010
The rest of the travel track at the show also takes place on the 15th. It includes:
- Travel blogging after 40
- How to get noticed by travel PR
- How to film a kick ass travel video
Also, if you are in Vegas let me know if you would like to meet up. I’m going to tentatively plan a meet up (location to be determined) in Vegas around 5-7pm. If you are a attending the show, that should be between the last event and the first party of the night.
