or, like, the 8th day of Chanukah or something.
Free samples and magazines galore that amassed during vacation. I think i'm single handily keeping the magazine industry employed thanks to super cheap subscriptions.
There's the key necklace i won from Jena @ Involving Home. Can't wait to wear it.
And while we're chatting in a random fashion, many of my recent posts have been giveaways and reviews. I am not out to make money on this blog, i don't have any sponsors-am i even worthy of them, would enough people see their pretty little picture on my sidebar, would anyone even PAY to be a sponsor, etc, etc.
But what i do promote and love is social spark, and how you can pick the items you review. I honestly want you guys to know about the products i review, i'm not just accepting anything that comes my way. There are lots of computer promotions, or iphone products, and kids stuff, that i choose to not post about (and therefore receive no reimbursement) because i don't know much about computers, and i don't have an iphone, and i don't have kids. But home stuff? And garden stuff? That i have, that i strive to better, and that i blog about, so to me...it makes sense to review, promote, and post about those items. I hope you don't see those posts as annoying or money grubbing, but if you do, that's your opinion and you're entitled to it. Just as i am entitled to carry on my way.
I'm thinking of making another blog that would be specific to reviews/giveaways, but the offerings are based on pageviews and all that good stuff. If no one saw the other blog, then i would not get the items to review/giveaway, and that would totally defeat the purpose. You see what i'm saying?
Anyway, that's a lot of words and few pretty things to look at. I promise I'll be posting pictures and talking vacation soon.
What's your favorite part about coming home from a trip? Reuniting with pets and kids? Sleeping in your own bed? Or picking up your pounds of mail and magazines?
