The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…
The day you’ve dreamed of for years has finally arrived! Your little girl is all grown up and has chosen a partner to start her life with, and you are officially a MoB -- Mother of the Bride! While congratulatory remarks are appropriate at this juncture, so are a few…
This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…
Mom bloggers are constantly getting treated like online royalty from receiving free products for review, getting exclusive discounts and giveaway opportunities and even being flown all over the country for corporate trips. What is the best perk you've ever received as a mom blogger?
So far my perks have been free stuff to review. I love doing reviews and giveaways! But I do have to say I'm surprised by how many friends I've met through blogging. I never expected that perk. There is some awesome mommies out there that offer great support!
As far as an item it is definitely the Disneyworld trip. I really value the friendships I made on that trip and the on going relationship with Disney. They totally GET it. The conference call today with Suze Orman was great too.
But I have to say that being part of this community has been so amazing! It's the best perk of all.
wow you ladies are getting some awesome things! I literally just started a few weeks ago so nothing at all has come my way. Not to mention I feel as if I am in a tiny niche (cloth diapering and natural parenting) so I doubt Disney will be calling me :) I would love an iphone though.... my husband washed his and he is a sad panda now.
Great perks! I have not got any and probably won't as I don't do reviews for free items I receive ... don't receive any! But I so enjoy listening in on all these chats and learning about an industry I really wasn't aware of! I think I need a tutor or mentor o some sort so I can stick around for awhile! :)
Being a new blogger, the perks I have recieved so far are definately no corporate sponsored. However, valuable to me. The best perk so far is the time I get to spend on me, doing something that I love... writing. Any other perks will be a bonus.
My best so far has been a trip to EA and Maxis in San Francisco with my son. We got to preview new games, tour their offices and campus, etc. It was very cool! The same PR company invited us on another trip to CA, but we already had plans and had to turn this one down - I'm hoping there will be more in the future!
Oh Lord, I'm going to sound so cheesy so forgive me, but the greatest perk I have had is being able to get all my thoughts and emotions out with NO interruptions, NO backtalk, NO judgement, NO crying (well, maybe a little crying lol). It's amazingly cathartic. HOWEVER, I am brand new to blogging, so I probably won't be saying this after I get actual perks. lol
I've received several from a printing company for hosting their giveaways. I have mentioned receiving free stuff from them in my blog but not as a blanket statement every time. Guess now I'll make sure to... Any suggestions
I am really new to this too! But I love all the new friends I am making! I know someone said they are into cloth diapering and all natural parenting! I think that is becoming a huge topic. I like to blog about going green too. Its not what my whole blog is about but I have going green tuesdays!
