Breaking: Camden seeks to stop the bullets with bloggers

Camden (yes that Camden) is looking for some 200 bloggers to attend the first ever Camden Waterfront Attractions Blogging Days. To be held May 19-21, 2006, Camden’s “Blogging Days” are to consist of these bloggers enjoying complimentary admission (for the blogger and a guest) to three Camden Waterfront attractions: Adventure Aquarium, Battleship New Jersey and Camden Riversharks. In return, each participant "will be encouraged to share their honest opinion of each attraction that weekend on their personal blogs.”

“In the end,” says Hope Koseff Corse, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for the Battleship New Jersey, “we will pour over these blogs and learn so that all of us can be the best attractions we can be.”

There you have it folks. Camden wants you tell them what’s up. Like why the fuck the closest Patco stop to the waterfront isn’t close, or why the walk to which is enough to make a young kid hate cities for the rest of their lives. (O.k., so it's not really that bad. Still, you'd like to see some foot traffic around transit stops.)

Ok, there. We started it. Now you try.

According to the press release, you’re supposed to go to contests.philly.com and fill out the application, but as of 4 p.m. Tuesday, there’s nothing there for you. So maybe check back a little later. Or don’t.

UPDATE: Blinq covered this earlier today. The Philly.com contest page, however, still doesn’t mention anything about ‘Camden Blogging Days.’
