The Winners of The Blog World Expo Passes

Blog World Expo

Hey everyone! Sorry for posting this so late on Saturday but I had a pretty busy day with Dot Com Pho, Twestival Local and a BBQ with my next door neighbors. Anyway, here are the winners of the six Blog World Expo passes.

Grand Prize Full-Access Pass Winner: Worth $895

Congrats to Adria Richards of But You’re a Girl for winning the grand prize. Adria won the full-access pass by offering to hug 500 people while at Blog World. This I have to see!

I’ve done calculations. If I divide the 500 hugs equally over 3 days, I need to hug 167 people each day. If I divide that into 3 hours of full on hugging, I need to hug 1 person every minute.

Weekend Pass Winners: Worth $395 each

The two weekend pass winners are Coree Silvera of Market Like a Chick and Jami Gibbs of American Babble. Congrats to you both!

Exhibits-Only Pass Winners: Worth $75 each

I’ll see you guys on the show floor. It’s going to be a blast!

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      Congratulation Coree…hope you’ll have great time there!

      1. Thanks Benjamin! I’m sure it will be the best.

        Now I’m just debating if I should be the extra diligent student that goes back to her room, cleans up notes, blogs a bit & immediately sends out emails to new acquaintances….or cut loose a little and enjoy Vegas!

        Hmmmm….I think this year it will be all about learning. Maybe next year I’ll be at the point where I can goof off a little. I’m determined to make this a turning point!

  20. ZXT says:

    Congrats for the winners. If the Adria would hug a person every minute then I hope she got some strength left for blogging when she goes back to her hotel room.

  21. John,

    Wow! I saw the email this morning and lost my breath to see I had won! I am so happy because meeting people at blogging conferences has truly changed my life. I now look forward to connecting with others, going to events in real life (IRL) and of course, blogging!

    First thing I’m doing is contacting Threadless to see if they will make “FREE HUGS” t-shirts!

    Thank you!!!!

    1. Teen money says:

  23. Jayson says:

  24. Kristin says:

  25. Congrats to the winners! See you all in Vegas!

  26. MLDina says:

    Congrats to all the winners! Looking forward to meeting you at one of the best blogging events of the year.

  27. Jami says:

    It just occurred to me that I have no idea how to claim my pass. What’s the procedure, John?

    1. John Chow says:

      You should have received an email from BlogWorld about it. Check your email for it and if you don’t have it, let me know.

      1. Jami says:

        Nope. Didn’t receive it. Can they resend? I’ll keep an eye on my spam folder too.
