Update 7-24-09: The sweepstakes has now ended. Thank you for your interest in this promotion. Where would you go on your dream road trip this summer? Would you attend BlogHer ‘09, visit family, or even take a cross-country trip? Shell wants to help you get closer to making that dream a reality with a chance to win one of five $250 Shell Gift Cards!

Let's have a NYC-area pre-BlogHer '09 meet-up in June...who's in?

BlogHer '09 is now less than 90 days away, and we thought it would be great to do a bunch of local meet-ups pre-conference in all the cities where there seem to be a lot of BlogHers and that of course includes the NYC area. The meet-ups are for BlogHer '09 attendees and non-attendees.  It will help attendees meet each other pre-event, which might make walking into the ballroom on day one a little less scary.It will also be great for those who couldn't get a ticket to get a bit of a BlogHer experience too...the best part, really...meeting amazing women who blog. 

Enter to win a trip to BlogHer '09 from Ocean Spray Cranergy!

Update 4/30/09: This sweepstakes has now ended. Winners will be chosen shortly. Thank you for your interest in this promotion!
