Free Gifts to Bloggers

Do any other bloggers here receive offers, discounts or tickets in trade for promotion of products on your website? I get email offers from time to time, but I have never been interested in doing this. I'm kinda anti-consumerist, so it goes against my nature to promote purchase of anything, especially more junk. However, yesterday I was made an offer that I could not refuse, tickets to Cirque du Soleil, and I have never been and don't even know much about it and am excited that blogging finally paid a single tangible reward.

Review next week.

Nope, but my blog isn't particularly traffic driving and isn't very old. The only time I get contacted is when readers recommend books to me to review, which I love.

We get tons and are careful to only participate if we think its relevant to readers. Some of its is super spammy, but some can be interesting and useful. Cirque is doing a TON of local blogger promotion, so its been nice taking advantage of that :)

Oh, my goodness, I've gotten so many, and they're almost always really lame and just not something I'd be into promoting or even sharing with readers. This one seems like a good fit for you, though, and it'll enable you to have a new experience!

I have actually agreed to do a little promo that will be posted soon, but it's something so esoteric that it's the perfect fit for the ol' blog.

I get the odd free ticket to events. If it fits your blog go for it.

And it was a nice surprise to run into you not once but twice Saturday morning.
