Sometimes I feel like I have to become a sell-out on my blog. Sometimes, yet oh so very rarely, I get pitches for various items that, as you know, the PR company wants bloggers to promote…for a little item and without any money involved.
I don’t generally do it.
It’s insulting because my words are worth way more than a $9.99 iPod cover.
Although, I have been known to review a toy or two ;).
It’s been ages really, where, aside for some sponsored posts that I received big bucks for, I’ve reviewed an actual product for products sake.
I don’t know what came over me, the other day.
*hangs head in shame*
I got this very nice pitch from the PR company that handles Blue Bunny ice cream. And they were offering me all these mouth watering flavors of ice cream and ice cream sandwiches plus all the paper goods needed to host a party.
MY MOUTH. WATERED. Literally.
I drooled all over the keyboard.
And before I knew it, I agreed.
I’m going to have a party with lots of ice cream. I’m thinking it’s going to be during Chanukka and I’ll have some friends over with their kids, do a grab bag gift exchange and eat ice cream. LOTS of it. In exchange for a few tweets with a sponsored hashtag. No biggie.
I got this email from another PR company. Offering me silly Hello Kitty things.
One was a Hello Kitty blue tooth that I couldn’t help but think how my daughter would love it.
And I accepted.
Because, really? What a great Chanukka gift in exchange for a little review post, right?
But why do I feel like such a traitor to my beloved blog?
For yummy (hopefully) ice cream and a blue tooth set for my daughter.
Am I selling out or am I simply expanding my blogging horizons?
