Will you Sponsor my Posts?


So yesterday was another first in my blogging life, yesterday was the first time I was asked to do a sponsored post for my Blog.

I actually felt really good about the recognition. That some company thought my little Blog was big enough and had enough reach to recommend any product or service to anybody is quite an achievement for a  Blog that only is in existence for 5 months or so.  Quite an achievement indeed.

It all sounded great too, they would send me a few of their products to try out every few months or so and all I'd have to do was give a few honest reviews on the Blog along with links with good SEO etc. for all this free stuff. Awesomesauce.  I'm here to learn as much as I can about Web 2.0 and sponsored posts and getting advertisement sponsorships is definitely something I am all for, I mean I don't work at the moment so I will take anything that will help mine and Husbands life. Did I just admit to being a possible sell out whore? Well yes, I guess I did.

So what was the problem then? Well, I was asked to review a sex toy. Eh, yes a sex toy.

Look I'm not a person who's is not comfortable with his sexuality or someone that has anything against the use of sex toys and all that, but to actually openly review on my website feels like a world of eugh. I mean how would that go even?

GBM: 'Why this male prostate stimulator is so elegantly designed, I must give it 5 orgasms out of 5'.

Morto. What's worse is the thought of people I've known for years reading the post and then visualising, oh dear. No I could not do it, for them, they don't deserve those images. And what would my mother think? Now that would make for an awkward Skype conversation.

So I politely declined the offer. It was the right decision for me and for my Blog but it was nice to be asked to sponsor anything in the end.

Go Blog go.

  3. WHAT!?! You turned it down!?! You and your damn principles! I've been blogging for...well, I don't know how long because my memory is akin to that of a...what were we talking about? Oh yeah! I'll do it! I'll fake review a sex toy! But I've not been offered.
    Hey sex toy people, I don't care what orifice your toy is meant to be inserted in, I'll review it! I am POOR and will do anything! I'll find my own homeless person! All you have to do is supply the cash! Look at how many exclamation points I use! You can't afford NOT to ask me to review your garba--great products!
