You think I do what?

Last week, Suburban Turmoil had a great post about how marketers do and should approach the mommy bloggers. I read it with interest, though not with much recognition - I don't get a lot of unsolicited marketing solicitations via email, though they happen from time to time. When they come in, they’re usually understandable and usually pointed towards the parenting aspect of my blog – review a kids book, check out a parent-oriented website service. I actually accepted a copy of a book, which I’ve yet to do anything about, and it sits there making me feel guilty, which is really asinine because I don’t owe them a damned thing.

This morning, though, I got one that made me laugh out loud: “I contacted you because you have a pharmacy / medicine related blog”. I guess it’s all that talk about Follistim and Repronex and progesterone-in-oil and baby aspirin and microdose Lupron – not to mention cancer and emergency rooms and cancer and gall bladders.

hopefully they weren't offering free syringes of progesterone. Cause, ugh. Plus, if you want that I have a few extra ccs left over! I won't even ask you to pimp my blog.

I can only imagine what they would offer me in relation to the content on my blog....

Industrial strength cleaner to remove the fecal murals?

Sleeping aides?

A muzzle?

Oh, I know what I want! A case of red wine!! ;)

BTW thanks for visiting my blog. And the suggestion of wine, lots and lots of wine.....

How...odd.

I have received a few emails. I only took up the Crayola folks on their offer to try out the toddler colouring implements, because I knew I would do it. The others I have ignored because, like you, whatever the item was would probably sit there glaring at me and making me feel guilty.

I've just gotten a couple emails about safer baby bottles--but nobody was offering me any!
