My quest: winning a ticket to OMBC

March 12th, 2009 · 2 Comments

I HOPE I'm attending OMBCI love a smart, well executed social media contest and I’m always game to play along – especially for a worthy prize. In my sights at the moment? Winning a free ticket to the Online Media Boot Camp event, one of the social media conferences on my list of top five dream events I’d most like to attend this year.

After my blog post last week attracted the attention of Beth Harte and other conference masterminds, I managed to finagle an #OMBC nomination or two (or four?!) via Twitter today. It was pretty fun.

So why do I want to go? I’m in awe of the great speaker line-up. I love the idea of a small, intimate conference where real connections and conversations can take place. And, to quote Beth in her video promoting the contest, I’m just that into them.

Now, why do I deserve to win? As you can tell from my blog, I love social media and learning. I’ll be an active, enthusiastic, engaged participant at the conference. I’m high energy and fun to have around. I’ve already blogged about the event twice now, two weeks in a row. Once I’ve won my spot at OMBC and paid my own way there, I’ll live Tweet, live blog and openly share everything I learn. And, last but not least, I’m very handy to have around in case of a zombie attack.

So, what do you think, dear readers - do I deserve a winning ticket? Please leave a comment here or send a supportive Tweet to @onlinemediabc if you want to help my chances!

    Since my first assignment with Lara during an internship a few years ago, I continue to be amazed by her tireless enthusiasm for learning and sharing her knowledge with others. If Lara is granted a ticket to the conference, I know she will be an invaluable conduit by relaying the conversations to those who cannot attend. On behalf of those who depend on her witty tweets and thoughtful blogging, please send Lara to the Online Media Boot Camp!
