Blogging and Tweeting are two of my favorite things to do! And two of my social media compatriots have been given the chance of a lifetime...so naturally I'm going to shamelessly promote them!
Blogger Christie (owner of the blog: Lake Placid Skater), and Twitter user Sarah (@segsk8 and owner of the blog: blogher) are currently vying for the chance to blog for the U.S. at the Vancouver Winter Olympics.
Basically, that's awesome!
Here's the part I love the best. You can vote for BOTH of them! There are actually two teams...a Student's Team (Christie)and a Women's Team(Sarah)with the three highest vote getter's on each team going before the judges and if selected, winning a trip to Vancouver.
The judges are kind of amazing too! Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld who co-founded www.collegehumor.com and the awesome Bonnie Blair, Five-Time Olympic Gold Medalist Speed Skater!
I said...where's the Men's Team? *Sighs*
This awesome competition is being brought to you by the cool people at Microsoft® Office and you can vote now...just click here.
Also, if you are on Twitter...get out this message (Vote for @segsk8 and LP Skater to go to Vancouver! http://ow.ly/DpKa). Let's get these guys to Vancouver!!!
UPDATE: Looks like Christie has some more press...she's featured at the U.S. Figure Skating Website! Check it out here!
