Earn 15 Free Hilton Nights with Hilton Mom Voyage
It's a lucky day for family travel bloggers: Hilton Mom Voyage is currently taking applications for a yearlong blogging program targeted at family travel. In exchange for 20 blog posts and some other fairly easy requirements, the entire family (Mom, Dad, and kids ages 4-12) receive 15 one-night certificates to be used at any Hilton property in the world, and for any combination of dates (subject to availability).
The program is open to all U.S.-resident family travel bloggers over age 21. And unlike many similar travel-themed blogging programs, this is not a popularity contest. As the website states, "Writing counts! Hilton will select those with strong writing skills and great tone of voice. We’re also looking for families whose travel habits and sense of adventure match the spirit of Hilton Mom Voyage."
The application, found on the Hilton Mom Voyage website, is due by 11:59:59 pm EDT, Friday, February 6, 2015 and is comprised of five essay questions.
The hotel chain will choose their bloggers on Tuesday, February 17, 2015, and after agreements are signed, Hilton will pay for a training program in March in Washington, D.C. From that point, the bloggers will be required to write 20 blog posts—with photos—about their stay(s) at Hilton properties. Per the terms, the bloggers must also "promote the articles they write for Hilton Mom Voyage on the social media sites in which they participate; post a link to the story on the Hilton Mom Voyage site from any blogs that they manage; and participate in one Google Hangout over the course of the 12 month term if asked."
As a blogger, I especially like that Hilton wants the bloggers to write honestly, and the final requirement is that each article must have a clear disclaimer. That's just good business, for both Hilton and the bloggers.
