Every now and then, we’re reminded about why we do things. For example, charity workers get to see the faces of the people they help, bankers get to see their fat 13th, 14th, and 15th cheques throughout the year. But bloggers don’t often get to feel any significant rewards. Until now.

There’s an awesome new blogging competition, that lets any blogger enter, with a great prize at the end of it. Southern Sun have just opened the Southern Sun Montecasino in Joburg, and they’re offering a weekend’s stay there for 2.

The hotel is modelled on the Pallazzo Corsini, which was around in the 15th century in Italy. So it’s pretty cool.

For non-bloggers, the hotel has a great opening rate. you can see more of that info here.

The way to enter and win is simple. You need to blog about the opening, just like I have and follow the steps below:

1. Mention that the competion is open to all bloggers

2. Answer the 6 easy questions

3. Send the blog post links to sheenag@aquaonline.com along with your answers

The questions:

1.       What is the opening rate special?
