The Lab at Velocity: there will be prizes

The Lab event on Blogging is tomorrow (Wednesday) night at 6 p.m. and I do hope you can make it because we have prizes. During the first Lab event with Matte Stephens three prints were given out to people who attended (names picked from a jar), so of course we had to come up with some free stuff to give away. I had to forget about plans to bake cupcakes due to some pesky health and safety standards (understandable, if sad) so I decided to make some surprise balls to give away:

Surprise balls are crepe streamers wrapped around small gifts which are revealed as you unwrap. What’s inside? You’ll have to win one to find out. I was conscious of keeping the surprises gender neutral, and Scott gave guy approval to everything that went inside. I also hear rumors that a pink hose from Cynthia Rowley’s summer stuff from Target will be one of the prizes.

I do hope you can make it. There will be food and drink (so you won’t starve if you’re coming straight from work), and a bunch of fabulous people to mingle with. Here is Google Maps link to the Velocity store (across the street from the gigantic REI, parking is easy) and here are the details:

Please join us Wednesday, May 28th from 6-8 to meet prominent voices in the rapidly growing, ever-evolving world of blogs. Blogs purport transparency and openness, but there are less-apparent elements behind blogs, like relationships between bloggers and importance of search-engine optimization, which will make this such a fascinating topic to discuss. We welcome Northwest design bloggers Elaine from Decorno, Mary from Shelterrific, Megan from notmartha, and Paola from MirrorMirrorto meet and greet and answer your questions about this fascinating topic. Please join us to learn how to start and promote your own blog, whether for business or fun, from our delightful and knowledgeable panel of experts.

    If I keep reading about events like this I may have to give moving up to Seattle further consideration…

    Sounds like a gret event. Hope we get a mini recap for those of us who can not travel to attend in person.

    Ugh! I’ve been trying all day to figure out how to get there…but my schedule is not cooperating. If there is any way to post a brief after the fact, that would be fantastic. Thx!
