We Interrupt This Regularly Scheduled Blog Post

[Image credit]

Every day I get emails from companies looking to reach out to my Mommy Friends through me, kinda like Ghost, but not as sexy.  My fellow mom bloggers know what I’m talking about when I say sometimes these companies have you (and me) all wrong.

I get emails addressed to “Dear Blogger”.  Wow, personal…delete.

I get emails addressed to my fellow bloggers, “Dear Mommy Loves to Dance”.  Wow, not me…delete.

I emails from companies asking me to promote products and services I have no interest in whatsoever.  While I can’t speak on behalf of all of you, I’ve taken the liberty in assuming that you aren’t really interested in online gambling or how to get a greener lawn.

I try to limit the “commercials” on this blog because your time is valuable and I don’t want to become just another commercial you zip right passed like on your DVR.  But for the commercials I do post, just know they are chosen very carefully.  If I love a product, I want you to know about it.  If I found a magical method to get a toddler to listen, I’d post about it 3 times, just so you wouldn’t miss it.

A lot of really wonderful companies and brand partnerships are out there and beneficial to all so long as they’re the right fit.

I’m not entirely sure where this bloggy journey will take me, but I promise to always respect your time and readership.  You ain’t got time for crap, and neither do I.


  1. Mommyfriend says:

    Tina, that is so funny.  Like it’s so hard to write it to “Life Without Pink” or “Tina”, lame.

  2. Mommyfriend says:

    You are too sweet!  A martini award, don’t mind if I do!!!!  I like me a dirty martini, extra olives!

  3. Mommyfriend says:

    LOL female prisoners!  You slay me girl XOXO!

  4. Oh I got one the other day that addressed me by my tag line, really???? DELETE!

  5. Amen! I say the same thing all the time. I don’t have time to slang lip gloss and nail files, herbal “drugs” or maternity clothes (since I’m NOT pregnant) its like they don’t even read me:) And for the products I’m getting offered,who do they think my audience is…female prisoners? It really is like they don’t even read me at all:)Spammers, please stop bothering me to hock your junk unless its something actually pertinent to my readers.Maybe coffee, wine, comfy beds, computers, phones,jewelry, culture. date night getaways,educational toys for our kids,outdoor imagination toys, something along these lines. Something to make myself, my children, my readers lives better in some grand way:)Amen and alleluia!

  6. Hi Lori, left you a little something on my blog today – enjoy!

  7. This made me laugh. I started blogging a few months ago and today I got the email “Hi Dooritos, great job with Just the Things and I!” Somehow I doubt they have read my blog, and Dooritos is a pseudo name. PERFECT just PERFECT!
