BlogHer ’06 is closing in. And I want YOU to go. So much so…that I’m GIVING AWAY FREE TUITION

I’m really, really, really excited. And I can’t help but share my excitement.

I’m sending YOU to Blogher.

The Queen is the Queen, afterall. And she can make things happen.

Get yourself a hotel room and airfare. And I’ll pay one reader’s tuition. But we need to act fast, because Day One only has 100 spots left and registration is going quick.

So take the weekend to write a guest post for the Queen of Spain. You read the site. You know what kind of snark flies around here. Write about anything you want. Your life. Your kids. Your vagina. Whatever. Get it to me no later than Monday, April 17th, 2006. 11:59pm Pacific is the cutoff. It’s just like this year’s tax deadline…but so much better.

I will pick a winner for whatever reason, for whatever mood I’m in. Everyone and anyone can enter.

Email me your entry at

I will post the winner’s guest column along with a bio. And we’ll meet in San Jose, CA in July! And then you can proudly put this button on your blog:


  1. Let me know immediately if someone is disqualified for knowing you already.

    (and already having a room and registration – but no plane ticket).

  2. I said ANYONE.

    And I’m sure we can work out those who are already registered.

  3. I love, love, LOVE you for doing this. Really. I’m holding off on my other post for MSN to do this one. You rock.

    All hail the Queen. OH! There’s my title!

  4. Awesome! Not sure if I’m going to jump on this though, since we’ll have a new baby by then, Sweet Pea’s birthday on July 24th (haven’t decided yet if party will be weekend before or after), AND we may actually also be moving to the East Bay that month (just half an hour away, but might not be in San Jose anymore that week, may be unpacking in Pleasanton instead!).

    Maybe those aren’t good reasons not to actually work up a potential guest post, though. Okay, I’ll try. :o)

  5. Aw, damn. I just used up my creativity for my most recent post. Now I have to find some creativity again.

    So, for those of us who can get in at the student price, can we use the remainder to help with airfare? 😉

  6. I think this is AWSOME! I wish I could afford to do this for someone else. I’m already registered, too, so I won’t enter. But I’ll post it on my blog in case other girlies want to try. 🙂

    And I’m stealing that button. *yank*

  7. Wish I go too, But I live too far away 🙁

  8. Referred by Mocha, I just came over here for the first time. Ya mind if I add you to my “Blogging It” list on my blog?
    Oh yeah, and I just emailed you an entry!
    Peace: It’s not just for hippies anymore

  9. Go for it, Nicole!

  10. Oh, Crap!!! I’m sorry– I need to withdraw my entry (well, you can still read it…). What was I thinking?! I can’t afford to fly to California for a conference. I live in Germany! I think I was just so excited about entering my two-month old blog in a contest…
    Sorry ’bout that!
    Thanks for the encouragement, though!
    Also, feel free to stop on by “all things nicole” any time!
