I'm gearing up for Blog World Expo 2009 in Las Vegas. I'm outta here and over there in the silver state come October 15-17. Yep, the old Great Reader, KIM Jong JihadGene will be riding the next SCUD out of Fresno for the impact area/target Las Vegas, Neveda! Want to attend for free? It'll save ya like... $375!
Here's the (really wide open) stipulations...
1. If you are currently serving in the Armed Forces, or are a veteran of same (discharged or retired) and want to attend, drop Black Five's Laughing Wolf a line at blake at blakepowers dot n with BWE09 Free Registration in the subject line and a short note introducing yourself within, and you will get a code that gives you a free registration for the milblog track on 15 October, and access to the exhibit hall (and the Milblog Lounge) on the 16th & 17th.
2. If you are a military spouse, spouse blogger, military supporter, or reader of the milblogs, the same applies.
3. If you have a blog or other outlets of your own (Twitter, Facebook, newsgroups, e-mail groups, etc.), please spread the word.
4. If you happen to have contacts in blogging or old media in California, Nevada, or Arizona, please reach out to them as well, as we would very much like to be sure that we reach all the different bases in those regions.
Also note that if you are interested in attending, there are some excellent deals on rooms and such through the Blog World site once you are registered. I got the Hilton at only $69 per night and that includes a Friday and Saturday night in Vegas. Usually Friday and Saturday night stays are outrageously inflated in price! Hope to see you there...and thank you...thank you very much!!!
