I write a lot about things I enjoy and that, in my opinion, make daily life better. A lot of these things are products. And none of them are sponsored posts. I've had an epiphany recently.
When I'm seeking out content, whether it's a podcast, blog, magazine, whatever, I'm looking for authenticity and genuine thought. I'm just looking to discover new and interesting things that others also enjoy. I don't want to be sold anything...or at least know flat out that I'm being sold something. HA!
They share stuff they like just because....THEY LIKE IT. Or, they're getting paid to like it and I can't tell at all. I doubt the latter is true because it's standard to be pretty up front about something being sponsored. Of course I understand that bloggers need to make a living and I'm not knocking them for doing sponsored posts. I enjoy many sponsored posts, but do I like them as much as genuinely conceived content? NOPE.
Anyways, rant over and now I have a proposition for you.
Would you like to share the things that make your daily life better on this very blog? If so, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to send over a one to two paragraph blurb about a particular product, song, book, artist, WHATEVER. Also, a photo of yourself and social media handles to link up might be helpful too so I can incorporate it into the post.
I want this to be a destination to get new ideas...of new things to read, see, do, eat, wear, apply, and hear...just because we love them and think you would to.
