Ultimate IZEAFest 2009 Prize Pack
Ultimate IZEAFest 2009 Prize Pack

I like to do things in a big and bold way. Ted Murphy does as well and IZEAFest 2009 is the biggest and boldest yet. Imagine 3 days and 300 bloggers invading SeaWorld (and as I recently learned Busch Gardens Tampa!) to learn how to be better bloggers, win prizes, party and even hang with RealShamu! That is what you can do if you attend IZEAFest 2009.

I mentioned Busch Gardens, check out this latest announcement for details.

Yes, you get to go to not 1 but 2 Awesome Theme Parks all for the price of 1 IZEAFest ticket! Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream, Here We Come!

What’s that you say? You don’t have an IZEAFest 2009 ticket? Never Fear!

BenSpark.com along with IZEA, MarketLeverage, XShot Pix, ZINK Imaging, Martha Decker, EBOOST, brite-View, The Dirty Shirt, Flipbac and PokenGirl are Here to Help!

I’ve teamed up with these great sponsors to give some lucky winners amazing prizes. One lucky winner is going to hang with me at IZEAFest 2009 and go on a very special outing and that lucky person will also receive the Ultimate IZEAFest 2009 Grand Prize Pack! But never fear I have prizes for two runner ups as well.
