question for you

So here's a blogging question for you! Has anyone else ever gotten an e-mail from a website asking you to blog about their site? I got one today for a scrapbook site that I have never even been to never mind frequent! I thought it was strange that they asked me to look at the site and then post about it on my blog. First off... I don't use your site. Second, (and I hate to say this) what do I get out of it?

I just found this very strange. And, I was wondering if this is something that happens frequently or if it was just an odd fluke type thing!



  1. nope...ive never gotten an email like that!

  2. I have never had it happen, but I don't know that it is all that uncommon. I think site search blogs for those that seem to post about their type of service and see if they can get some advertising from it. If you contact someone, you can probably work out a deal where you get compensated for doing the post. Just be careful it isn't a scam...but of you know that if they ask for money or info from you then it isn't legit.

  3. It's never happened to me. I agree with Pam, there is likely some deal you could work out though. But beware of scams!

    It's likely because of your scrapbooking post a couple of days ago....

  4. I had one e-mail from the publishers of Happiest Baby on the Block. I wrote about the book and they must have found me. They thanked me for having so much praise for it and encouraged me to share my experiences with the book on my blog.

    The publisher offered me a copy of the book and DVD as thanks.

    I thought that maybe that was the start of something good (free stuff!)--but alas, it was not to be. I haven't gotten any other bites since.

    Pam and Kami have great ideas--see what they would be willing to offer you and go from there!

    Could be interesting . . .

  5. I've never had anything like that happen to me either...I probably wouldn't do it either unless I got something out of the don't feel bad for thinking "what do you get out of it?" because this is YOUR blog after all. :)

  6. I haven't gotten one of those. But I agree. What do you get out of it? :)

  7. I've never had that happen to me, but I do ask bloggers to review Heavenly Hold or to post about new baby carriers or products. Usually though, its really big blogs that do this on a regular basis for other companies like Prizey, Pink with Sparkles, Cool Mom picks, etc

    You're popular, Lori!
    I'm going to do your MeMe on Monday!! Thanks for the tag!

  8. I say I do reviews right on my blog so I have receieved a few e-mails. If they aren't offering me anything- I take a pass. s the site that contacted you any good?

  9. No. Now I feel all sad that nobody wants me. :)
