by Janice

Win A Sony VAIO SA, Windows Phone and More as Windows Helps You Survive BlogHer11.

Can you survive BlogHer?

Believe me – I’m a conference veteran and BlogHer is the most exhausting of them all! It is a marathon of a conference. Everyone is there, everyone is talking to you and everyone on top of everyone is throwing a party.


This year I’m an Official Windows Champion for Microsoft Windows*. What does this mean? Mostly, it means that they’ve partnered with me to do a few pretty cool things around BlogHer.

I’ll be tweeting, blogging, and representing Windows at BlogHer. I am SO excited that I get to go sailing with @Kristinalibby of the Windows team. What is even more exciting is what it can mean for you. You can win a BlogHer’11 Survival kit, get all the details at our Tech Tuesday survival chat and get the inside scoop on everything you need to know.

Win the BlogHer’11 Survival Kit

You won’t believe what’s included in this tech-friendly BlogHer survival kit!

Sony VAIO SA PC running Windows 7

The Sony VAIO SA has up to 15 hours of battery life (via a removable sheet battery), an ultra-light weight body and premium features like a backlit keyboard and HD screen. They are also currently running a great deal for students with a discount on the battery whenever you buy a PC.

This brand new Windows PC is perfect for a blogger who needs the best, with style. With this much battery, you can spend all day at the beach typing posts on Windows Live Writer and then come home and publish without ever plugging in. That’s staying connected without ever having to be connected.

Samsung Focus Smart Phone

If a PC isn’t enough, we are also giving away a Samsung Focus with 30 days of service via your retailer of choice. When I’m at BlogHer, I take pictures all the time and this phone has an amazing camera. You can take photos, upload to your PC and then easily add them to your blog. Next week on the Windows Experience Blog, Ben the PC guy will share the step by step instructions.

One-hour massage and breakfast in bed at BlogHer!

Just in case a phone and a PC wasn’t enough to help you survive Blogher, Windows is also giving the winner an hour massage on Saturday afternoon and breakfast in bed on Sunday. Believe me, you’ll be sore and tired from running around in heels for two days!

Windows Tech Tuesday BlogHer11 Twitter Chat

Windows Tech Tuesday Twitter Chat are part of a weekly series where @windows, @windowsblog, @benthepcguy, @kristinalibby and @brandonleblanc discuss and answer questions about Windows technology – photography, travel, environment etc. It’s a bit like NPR’s Car Talk, but for PCs.

This week, we’ll be giving BlogHer survival tricks, tips, and tools. Ben’s a Blogher Veteran and Kristina has been to more conferences than she can count on all hands and toes.

If that isn’t enough, I’ll be there and joined by @robynsworld and @mommygoggles. We’ve all done it and lived to tell the tale.

So, ask questions. At the end of the chat, the winner will be pulled randomly from those who a) commented here and b) asked questions and took part in the chat. The more questions you ask, the better your chance of winning. Use the hashtag #win7tech.

Okay folks, start commenting and get excited! BlogHer’11 is going to be amazing.

* Windows Champions are bloggers who are hand-selected to work with the Microsoft Windows Team. As part of this arrangement, I have been loaned a Windows 7 PC for the course of year and been given the opportunity to learn about Windows and Microsoft products.
