Share 10 tips to create a fun, distraction-free family vacation and get a $30 gas card!

The 5 random winners were selected at Here is a link for your reference.

Remember when family vacations were simple, fun and free from all of life's
modern distractions? The kids weren't playing video games in the car or
texting at the beach, dad wasn't on his laptop secretly working by the
pool, and mom wasn't tweeting away on her smart phone. Back then,
vacations were all about the vacation. How can we bring back the
simplicity to create magical memories for your family?

TwitterMoms is launching a brand new travel channel -- powered by you! To help us
get the content rolling, our friends at Alamo have graciously sponsored
a blogging contest open to the TwitterMoms community. To participate,
create your own "top-ten" checklist full of your tips for a fun,
distraction-free family vacation. How do you plan a family vacation
that's all about family togetherness and fun, where everyday
distractions don't get in the way? We'd love to see you incorporate
stories of memorable road trips from your childhood, or a favorite
nostalgic family vacation photos to add a little personality to your
post. Your posts will be collected and featured on the TwitterMoms
Travel Channel, and distributed across the web for all to see!

How It Works:

Create and post (on your blog) your ten great tips for creating a fun family
vacation free of distractions. Post the campaign widget inside your
blog post. Then, follow the rest of the requirements below. The first
50 moms who submit complete entries will get a $30 gas card, and all
qualifying participants are eligible to win one of five $100 gas cards!
All your posts will be carried on the new travel channel at for everyone to see! We are extremely excited
about this opportunity, since we think programs like this can drive a
lot of traffic to your blogs and help you build your reader base. The
blogging contest official starts at 12am PST, February 9th, and the
blogging contest officially ends March 8, 2010 at 11:59 PM ET. The
winners will be contacted on or about March 15, 2010. See official contest rules.

At the culmination of the contest, we will be hosting a Twitter party with
more fun giveaways. During the party, we'll be sharing links to your
great posts for everyone to read. Don't forget to RSVP for the Twitter
Party on Feb. 25
