I am so excited to be entering the Ultimate IZEAFest Contest! I want to attend the IZEAFest so bad I can taste it. The information that will be shared, the fun that will be had and not to mention all the amazing people that I could network with… This is one opportunity I don’t want to miss.
Listed on Ben Spark was the top ten items to bring with you to IZEAFest and to continue that list with my 11th thing to bring I must add a positive, outgoing, eager to learn ATTITUDE! If you bring all the things he tells you then I believe you will be covered. Come equipped with a great attitude, eager to soak in all the new knowledge provided, outgoing and ready to network with all the fabulous people there!
You can also find the top ten reasons to come to IZEAFest listed on Ben Spark. Of course Drew covers just about every great reason to come including speakers, networking, the IZEA team (including Drew of course!) and swag. But to add to that list I must say another great reason to come to IZEAFest held in Orlando is to ride the new Manta roller coaster during take over Sea World day. Have you seen that ride yet? OMGosh it looks amazing and supposedly it makes you feel like you are flying, how cool, right?!
To enter the contest I had to create a 90 seconds or less video answering three questions provided on Ben Spark. You can watch my vlog below:
Three questions and answers:
- “Why do I Want to Hang with BenSpark at IZEAFest 2009?” – I think BenSpark seems like a pretty cool dude. He is not only a family man, well known blogger but also a great photographer. I love his one photo a day commitment. I wish I could stay on track with that. I love to take photos but only use my digital camera’s automatic settings with point and click so maybe I could pick up a few tricks from him. Also I can’t wait to try out the fun XShot that comes in the ultimate prize pack!
- “How will IZEAFest 2009 Change My Life?” – The knowledge, networking and potential opportunities gained from this conference could last a lifetime. My ultimate goal is to grow my blog into something I love while opening new doors within social media for future business opportunities. I am a stay at home, work from home, single mother who cares for my daughter with disabilities; I need all the great opportunities I can find.
- “What Am I Most Looking Forward to at IZEAFEst 2009?” – Of course the first and upmost thing I would look forward to is the conference itself. The learning, speakers and amazing networking. But outside that, the few days of escaping reality to travel to Orlando sure would be nice. And of course I can’t forget to mention riding the Manta, that is one thing I really look forward to!
