Spread the conference widget love

by Valerie Ipson

See the awesome ANWA Conference widget on the sidebar? Yeah, right there. It's so wonderfully counting down the seconds till the out-of-this-world awesome ANWA Conference!

Krista Darrach created the widget. She is an awesome widget-creator, isn't she?! I've already seen it popping up around the blogosphere, so thank you to those that have already snagged it. In fact we want to say thank you to all of you who post it on your blog sidebars with a contest to win a t-shirt.

Here's how to enter:

1. Snag the widget for your own blog sidebar. (Just click on "Get Widget").
2. Leave a comment telling us you did so. (Mention of this Widget Contest might show up elsewhere, in fact you are welcome to share it on all your networking sites, but to be entered you must leave a comment on this particular blog post).

Simple as that. Next time it's my turn to blog (which comes around every other Tuesday) I will randomly choose a winner among the commenters.
I'm not sure, but this might be the very-first-ever contest with a prize offered on the ANWA Founder blog!

NOTE: Since we don't have an official conference logo at this point or maybe never will, I can't say what the t-shirt will have on it. If nothing else, it will be a phrase of your own choosing as in this example...

We are so excited for all that is planned for the upcoming conference. Help us spread the word through blogs, tweets, facebook, and word of mouth. We want this to be the BEST CONFERENCE EVER!

And hey, did you know that if you click on the widget it takes you straight to the conference registration page? Cool, huh? Remind visitors to your blog that they can click on it to get all their conference questions answered.


  1. I snagged the widget. It's on my blog.

  2. I posted it to my blog too! I love the saying on the shirt. I would want that very one!

  3. FYI Valeri, I am posting it to several of my blogs, but am not eligible to enter the contest --boo hoo- since I am the Event Chair of said ANWA Writers Conference.

  4. Hey, I did that a couple of weeks ago - it's on the TOP of my blog and I posted it to FB - got a couple of friends very interested in the conference - hope you'll count my entry even though I already did it - it is so RARE that I'm early with things. LOL :)

  5. I'm with Stephanie. I've had mine for a few weeks now.

  6. I grabbed this last week and now, to think I might get a shirt! Yay!

    If you need the link for the blog to see the widget here it is...


  7. I put the widget on my blog. I am excited to attend the conference.

  8. Definitely if you already have the widget you are eligible, as long as you comment and tell us so.

  9. i have the widget up in my blog sidebar.

  10. Okay. The widget's up on my blog. :) Just wish I could go. :)

  11. Got the widget! It even goes well with my background! Woo-hoo!
