Win an Official NEPA BlogCon Press Pass

We pondered what to do about official press passes for a blogger conference where we are all the media. As much as we would love to, we just couldn’t let everyone in as the press – since this is a  fundraiser for our charities as much as it is edutainment and networking for everyone attending. We made…

Have some fun with the squirrels behind NEPA BlogCon, aka the Fearsome Foursome, as they gather their strength and their nuts for the harsh winter ahead.

QOTD: Where do you get your inspiration?

(Our question of the day is a fun featurette that lets YOUR voice be heard. We won’t be asking questions EVERY DAY but we will be asking them somewhat often.) Where do you get your inspiration? Do you have Google alerts set for the latest political or celebrity news, scan the store aisles for the…
