Seriously, I’m a bit confused as to why anyone wants to send us stuff to review over our geek blog. I mean, it’s a good blog, and we work hard on it. But it still surprises me to get an email saying, “Hey, we have (insert product) and we want you to review it.” So far it’s only been a couple of books, and most recently an iPad case (that is worth over $60 retail).
It’s been weird lately, with the free things and winning of stuff. I mentioned previously that Ken and Amanda both won 4-day GenCon passes, which are worth $70/$80 each. There’s also the ‘word of mouth sites’ we keep getting stuff from, (like Influenster & BzzAgent). Still haven’t gotten anything from them that would be good with our geek blog, but there’s been some useful items (shampoos, body washes, lotion, dish soap, shoe insoles, etc) . Plus I keep getting food campaigns from BzzAgent, which is awesome. Cause, well, free food! No, they don’t send the food, just coupons to get it free (or discounted) at Kroger.
I could get used to this, seriously. Everyone loves free things, plus I’m broke so that makes it even better. Also, I am at least talking about, and posting, etc, about the items, so I’m not just taking them and giving nothing in return.
Not much happening, trying to take better care of myself, because sometimes I slack in that department. Finding my walks more fun & easy now that I downloaded the Zombies, Run! app.
So yeah…Guess that’s it for this months update…It’s very much like last months. This is why I don’t work on my personal blog much. *sigh*
