What say you???

Ok People, I have news.

No, I'm not up the duff.

A media company contacted me and asked if I'd like to talk about some of products for clients of theirs, on my blog. They'd pay me of course to do so - but trust me, I won't be swanning off to a desert island on it just yet...

I made a rule for myself though. No one wants to read a blog that just endlessly tries to sell stuff - that is never what I wanted my blog to be about or for. So I will only write about things that have a personal resonance with me: things I wish I'd known about when I was going through the hell of breast feeding, or a blow up cow my daughter is obsessed with - that kind of thing. I will mention that the post is sponsored as such - so I won't be tricking y'all along some garden path.

These folk contacted me last week - but I never check my CM email that often - so I only saw it on Wednesday. I would love to blog/write in some way in order to earn a living - I have some plans along those lines - and this is a small step in that direction. I hope you guys will support that and not think I'm selling out/selling my soul/turning into an advert soapbox.

Because you know, I care about what you all think. Loyalty and all that. So if it's ok with you guys, then I'll do it. What say you?

It's becoming the norm. Most bloggers seem to do sponsored posts at least once a week and that's cool. When it gets to be three times a week, though, that gets a bit annoying.
