Toshiba is Coming with Us to BlogHer…

…well, their laptops are!

Our BlogHer 09 Sponsors

toshiba-logoWe are so excited to announce that Toshiba is sponsoring our 5 Minutes for Mom team at BlogHer 2009!

A few years ago, my husband and his business partner bought Toshiba laptops. They were impressed with the affordable prices of Toshiba laptops and the positive feedback they had heard, and so for them it was an obvious choice. I had never used a Toshiba laptop and so I was curious to see how it performed — and I have not been disappointed.

My husband (and I) love his Toshiba! It has been a dependable machine, (that I borrowed for a few weeks when my previous laptop crashed, taking all my data with it!)

So, we are thrilled to have Toshiba as our BlogHer 09 sponsors!

AND we are even more excited that Toshiba is including the BlogHer 09 attendees in the Toshiba fun at BlogHer…

A Special BlogHer Contest

During BlogHer, we will be having a special Twitter contest — The Hunt for the Traveling Toshibas — where attendees find one of our bloggers with a marked Toshiba laptop, (our bloggers will be wearing Toshiba buttons!) She will hand the blogger her business card (or leave her name, email and twitter handle) and send out a tweet using the hashtag, #TravelingToshiba, announcing she has found one of the Traveling Toshiba laptops.

toshiba-laptop-satellite-l515The BlogHer attendee’s business card and tweet will enter her in an exclusive giveaway for a Toshiba Laptop. There will be three marked laptops and attendees can enter on all three!

The prize laptop will be the Satellite L515, one of the laptops used in the hunt!

Yes, the winner will leave BlogHer with a NEW Toshiba laptop!

It’s so wonderful to see Toshiba jumping into the blogging & social media realm with both feet. And what a creative promotion! I’d definitely be searching for the “Traveling Toshibas” if I were attending the conference this year. :)
