Blog Elevated Staycation Winners

About a month ago, we were approached by the founders of Blog Elevated and offered the chance to attend and sponsor their first ever blogger conference in Houston. We jumped at the chance and this past weekend we had a blast meeting 250+ bloggers from all across the country.  We talked some, ate some, learned some, and then ate some more. Puffy the Pinecone even made an appearance and hammed it up for the cameras at the Friday night party. A fun time was had by all.

As part of the sponsorship we hosted a pre-conference essay contest. To enter, Blog Elevated attendees created an original blog post titled “Why I Need a Staycation.” In the essay, they made their cases for why they deserved to win a getaway at The Woodlands Resort.

We received eight entries. They ranged from seriously heartfelt to seriously humorous. You can read each one below. 

Abbie Unger of The Envelope Keeper

Eric T. Tung of Eric T. Tung The Social Media Guy

Kirsten Oliphant of Kristen Oliphant - An Eclectic Celebration of Chaos

Alba Garza of Independent Mami

Sarah Jane Skaggs of Happiness & Lace

Heather Shaw of Family Friendly Frugality

Sara Phillips of Sensibly Sara

Lauren Martinez of Method to My Madness

We reviewed each entry – and then read through them at least 2 more times after that. Even after the third and fourth read, we still couldn’t pick a winner because they all make such compelling cases.  In the end we decided to award all eight bloggers with one Family of 4 Fun Package each including:

• One Night Deluxe Accommodations
• Full breakfast for 4 in The Woodlands Dining Room
• Half Day Bicycle Rental for 4
• Family Welcome Cookie
• Unlimited access to Sauna, Steam Room, Whirlpool, Fitness Center
• Unlimited access to Forest Oasis Waterscape

Congratulations to all of our winners and we will look forwarding to seeing you on property soon.
