Win The Kodak EasyShare Digital Camera And Pulse Digital Frame!

CONTESTS | | September 4, 2010 at 5:48 am


Congratulations Jenny On The Spot!

So you know I am en-route to a cruise (thanks to Carnival Cruise Lines) but as I await the hurricane out in my hotel room I realized I may be offline a bit for 8 days. In fact I will be blogging everyday to keep you along for the ride but I really felt guilty that I am leaving my readers. To make up for my guilt I felt why not give my readers a treat while I am away. So when I was at BlogHer I was invited to do the Kodak bus tour. Even though New York is decently close to me and I have been there oodles of times I had never been on an official tour. The lucky invitees were all sent a Kodak EasyShare M580 digital camera, the same type I am going to give to you. Anyway there was a photo taking contest and my photo of the memorial set up by people on a fence for September 11th actually won. MY prize was a prize for you. I did not actually win anything for me but got to give my readers the Kodak EasyShare camera (valued at $199.95) and a Kodak Pulse Digital Frame (valued at $129.95).

Seriously this is an awesome prize and the value of it  a whopping $329.90!!!

Although I don’t have the digital frame so can’t tell you my experience with it, I did receive the camera. The camera looks unassuming but takes fabulous pictures. I have a DSLR, which is a sexy red, but this one rivals it since it is HD (high definition).

Now I would go on telling you about the specifications but I have a cruise to catch, people. There are links to each for more details. I will miss all of you as I doubt I will be much online except for recounting my journey.

Want to win the Kodak EasyShare M580 Digital Camera AND the Kodak Digital Frame bundle? (valued at $329.90)

To win tell me what is your favorite vacation spot? Contest closes 12th September 2010 . To earn extra entries, after you have left a comment, do one of the following, but make sure you leave a separate comment entry for each extra thing you do. This gives you additional ways to win the contest. Now don’t do anything stupid like leaving your actual email address in the comment section or say something like “enter me” – play fair.

    Garner State Park in Texas. It’s on The Frio river and it’s gorgeous. Cabins, campgrounds, trails… every night everyone gathers around the pavilion and they open up the jukebox and have a dance. Families have been going there for over 50 years and still go.
    My husband and I honeymooned there and are planning a trip back with our kids for our 10th anniversary this next June.
    IT’s gorgeous, you’re totally unplugged, away from everything and completely ensconced in nature.
    I love.

    As much as I love to travel, my very favorite place is Washington, D.C. There’s so much to see and do (for free) and the Metro makes it easy to get everywhere. It’s a great place for a family vacation (fun and educational) as well as for adult travel (fun and lots of night time entertainment). And there are wonderful restaurants of all kinds in D.C.

    Our favoruite vacation spot is a tiny Cornish village called St Agnes in Cornwall – we got engaged overlooking the beach there, everyone is wonderful and the surroundings are beautiful – nothing beats starting the morning by walking up a cliff – looking over to next cliff over sand going “No, it’s sunny over there, it’ll be sunny all day”

  106. 106
    Ohajiki says:

    Actually, another favrouite place is in and around Sligo on the West Coast of Ireland. There’s always pub lock-ins, dancing until all hours, friendly locals and lovely food. After spending about two hours there you feel like part it.

    My favorite vacation spot is Cleveland, Ohio. Which is funny, considering it was named the #1 worst place to live recently. I don’t love Cleveland for the city, though. I go because my grandma, who I named my 8 month old, Sophia, after, lives there. She is very special to me, and I do not get to see her often enough at all. Plus, her famous chicken burgers alone are worth the crime, smog, and cold all by themselves! Sometimes the surroundings don’t matter nearly as much as being around the people you love the most.
