Nearly five years ago, we had a crazy idea to start Nuts About Southwest, our Company blog. During that time, we've seen amazing growth, been recognized by our peers and had a lot of fun along the way!
One of the biggest events for bloggers, social media enthusiasts and Internet geeks alike is Blog World & the New Media Expo. Held in Las Vegas, the conference is a place where each of these converge to share tips and finally see each other IRL (that's 'in real life,' for all you beginners).
As veterans of the blogosphere, and the first airline to have a blog, coming to Blog World is a natural fit. During the conference, many people approach us asking why we are here.
Besides being a sponsor, Southwest Airlines' Emerging Media Team is constantly looking for ways to educate ourselves and improve our own social media practices. And, in the true spirit of our brand, we came to give stuff away.
Got your attention, didn't I? Well, Blog Worlders, there are a variety of ways you can win this weekend when you visit the Southwest Lounge in the conference area at Mandalay Bay.
The first chance to win begins right here:
1. At our Lounge, we have a photo booth (you know, the kind that takes pictures). 2. Take your picture there, and make it your profile pic on Twitter. 3. Tweet @SouthwestAir to notify us your profile picture has changed, using the hashtag #blogsouthwest. 4. Wait in anticipation, daydreaming of the possibilities.
