10 last free bloggy thing I've turned down

I get asked to review stuff, give away stuff as competitions, promote stuff fairly regularly. Now I accept that you probably have to work your way up with reviews etc before you get a go of the good stuff like free holidays and shoes. I'm an instant gratification girl, I want the good free stuff first. I am more than happy to sell my bloggy soul (and possibly a child) for free holidays and shoes.

These were the last things I have been offered

A £500 baby hamper as a comp prize - not likely to set my heart a flutter as my youngest will be 15 in less than a fortnight

To be an adjudicator at a Guiness world record attempt - there was no mention of cake

Pregnancy vitamins launch day - oh I'm not going back down that road, thankyouverymuch

Free £100 voucher to promote a shopping site.

Book blog site - oh I read and I blog but would others want to read about what I'm reading?

Theatre trip - I was on holiday

Experience days - I'm not madly keen on experiences, when someone says "well, that was an experience" I tend to think that is nice lady speak for "well that was crap"

Another theatre trip - a family one, show more suited to younger children than mine, although their behaviour might suggest otherwise

A day out at a science museum - again been there when they were much younger

Diet and fitness app - stop bloody laughing

Free washing powder - I want more exciting stuff than that.

Now once again, please offer me squillions of free stuff to review and promote, especially free stuff that I like, eg cake, weekends away especially trips to Barcelona as Kellogsville and I have a cunning plan, holidays, plastic surgery, clothes, make up and other nice lady things. I will do it properly, honest.

I've never even had the chance to turn down free bloggy things. But if you do figure out how to get them to offer you the good stuff - be sure to let me know.

What Gigi said.............and put me down for Barcelona.

Nota Bene said...

I'm with you...I never, well rarely, get offered anything that comes close to being a decent bribe...

Autumn Mist said...

Ooh, free washing powder!

Sorry, what's wrong with free washing powder? I bet the Guiness adjudicator might have been interesting, the most worms eaten in an hour...

I'm taking numbers for the blogettes on tour t-shirts but I'm a bit concerned that NB may try a disguise to sneak in there.

So how do you actually get asked to review things? No-one's ever approached me. Although I'd only be interested in the same rewards as you.

I get offered lots of baby stuff which just makes me broody and plenty of day trips to London, but minus the airline ticket! Today it was a Barefoot Yoga Hybrid Eco Mat and Solid Silk Eye Pillow, which actually sounds ok, but I suspect that if I'd clicked on the link I would have found a catch - would they really have shipped it from California to Dublin?

Oh this made me nod and go 'uh huh' in a sympathetic manner. I got most of those too - plus an invitation to a breastfeeding seminar (youngest is 13) and an invitation to try out some maternity bras...
