100 Grand

I’m closing in on 100-thousand tweets. Yes, ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND. It’s a grand affair that requires celebration.

Real princesses get dirty

In honor of this insane accomplishment (?) I want to give back to the community that has given me so very much.

I am giving away a full conference pass to BlogHer ’11 in San Diego, California.

In order to be eligible to win you must be a follower of mine on Twitter and you must send me an @ message. It’s that easy.

I will choose a winner at random and announce it as my 100-thousandth tweet.

Why must you be a follower? Because this medium is about engagement and getting to know each other, and it’s not about randomly entering a contest.

*Update 11/02/10 3:48pm – I’m going to use a random number generator and count back to the winner whenever I hit 99,999 – so the more you @ me, the better your chances.

***BlogHer is my employer, yet I am paying for this out of my own pocket and this contest is in no way sponsored by BlogHer, Inc. It’s just me, loving and appreciating this community that has taken care of my family in sickness and provided me with hours upon hours of blog and twitter love and laughter.

Good luck, and see you at BlogHer ’11.
