I am doing this mommy blogging thing all wrong. I could be getting FREE things and FREE trips if I were doing it right.
Recently I read about mommy blogger strategies. Apparently, the way to get the freebies is to become a brand evangelist. I need to find a brand for which I can sing praises to the heavens - in exchange for free things. BUY MCDONALDS, NOTHING CAN BE BETTER FOR YOUR FAMILY. (I hear McDonald's offers mommy bloggers behind the counter tours, visits to headquarters and even trips to the farms that supply the food) DISNEY THE BEST PLACE ON EARTH (fully-paid trips to their parks and even a little spending money)
I'm not even sure I need to like the product in order to promote it. As i always tell my daughter, we can find something nice to say about everyone. "You have really well groomed eyebrows."
Just look at all the adjectives I know: amazing, cool, incredible, magical, best, superfantastic, transforming
I know phrases too: To die for, Experience of a lifetime, answer to my prayers.
But I'm not giving away the whole thesaurus here. Brands! Call me! E-mail me!
I am happy to drink the Kool-Aid, the Red Bull or the Publix Root Beer.
Japan Airlines (JAL), Michaels Stores, Epicure, Tweezerman I LOVE YOU! Gucci, I can write upscale. My daughter wants whatever you want to send us.
Brands! Hear me and swamp us in free things! I promise to tell my friends (and anyone else who reads my blog or stands next to me in a park/grocery store/fun event) they can't live without you.
