My friend and fellow military blogger Laughing Wolf has a challenge he’d like you to help him with:
Well, I love a challenge and now have quite a large one on my plate. It seems that the folks at Blog World & New Media Expo (Las Vegas, NV Oct. 15-17, 2009) think we can get 200 people to the milblog track, and is willing to back that with up to 200 free memberships!! He has challenged me to get the word out to as many military members (current and veteran), milbloggers, milblog readers, military supporters, and others as possible, particularly in the California, Arizona, Nevada region.
So first, anyone currently serving or former service who drops Laughing Wolf a line at blake at blakepowers.net with BWE09 Registration in the subject line, and tell him in the body who they are, he/she will get a code for a free registration!!
Second, all milspouses, spousebloggers, milparent, milparent bloggers and military supporters can also get a code if they do the same!!! And I see on the BWE site that the Hilton has an awesome $69 room rate until Oct. 1.
So if you have an interest in new media (twitter, face book, flickr, etc.) and blogging — especially military-related — AND you want a great weekend in Vegas, you need to contact LW asap.
Do it. It’s a great experience!!
