F-R-E-E, That Spells Free!
I will be responding to ALL of the comments/visits/brand new followers as a result of yesterday's overwhelming awesomeness. It's going to take me a few
All right. It's Thursday. And that means it's time for Group Blog Thursday, hosted by the RECENTLY AGENTED author Stephanie Faris!
(Seriously, even if you don't participate today, stop by and congratulate her. Cuz that's a BIG deal.)
The topic today is Freebies. And, really, who doesn't love getting something for free? I mean, even celebrities, who make more money for a thirty second commercial than the entire nation of Papua New Guinea will make in a YEAR, love to get free stuff.
In trying to decide what to write today, I thought about all the ways I find freebies. I don't have a credit card, so I'm not racking up the air miles or points toward a new dress so that my husband can look at that instead of going on a fancy vacation.
(Seriously? What husband in the world would just smile adoringly as his dreams of dashing off to Paris have just gone into two yards of blue silk?)
Anyways, so I don't have credit cards. I do enjoy free samples at Costco. That's always fun. I get all the Albertson's rewards for having whatever their reward card thing is called, but I always forget to bring the register coupons back with me.
Nope. My favorite and most productive way to get free stuff is the internet. I'm not talking about giveaways.
(Although I do LOVE those!)
I mean free stuff. Like, products to review. So far, I've gotten two free books from Atria Books. I was thisclose to scoring some free earrings and some kind of magnetic bracelet thing.
Anyway, I like to review stuff not just because it's free, but because it provides a service to you, the consumers out there that are likely to rush out and buy things just based on my "This rocks!" pronouncement.
I've been thinking that I'd really like to continue this service. Here are just a couple of things I would be willing to sacrifice myself to review for you, my dear readers:
The Nook from Barnes and Noble
The BMW X6
Really, it's not about me. I do this all for you!
