Win Justin Timberlake Tickets by Starting a Blog

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


You have something to say. You have a life worth documenting. You write fine. You definitely have fifteen minutes a day to write down some of your feelings.

Clearly you read blogs so why don't you write one?

There's no need to tell your friends, or your family, or those who you work with. In fact sometimes it's better that they don't know your deepest darkest secrets.

LAist thinks that January should become Start A New Blog Month and if you've already got a blog that you've turned your back on, January should also be Write Something New on Your Damn Blog Month.

We have a pair of some excellent seats to the Justin Timberlake concert next Tuesday, January 16. Someone who has a blog or a myspace account who has a new post written and who has the LAist button (see it after the jump) on their side bar will get those tickets.

Justin just brought the sexy back to Anaheim last night, tomorrow he's in San Jose, then 1/12 in Sacramento, 1/14 in Phoenix - ok fine Glendale, AZ, and then Tuesday at Staples Center, followed by next Wednesday in Fresno, and next Friday in Vegas.

Don't live on the west coast? Poor souls, head over to for more tourdates, ringtones, ringback tones and enter to win tickets to show PLUS passes to a private soundcheck before the show.

Why didn't AC/DC have such things when we were kids?

Anyways, get the LAist button which you can find after the jump, put it on your blog, update your blog. Then leave a comment on this post with the url of your blog, and put your real email address in the email field so we can contact you next Monday at 4:20p.

Easy enough?
