Yesterday I drew the name for the winner of the 3rd Better In Real Life Book List via Random.org. And Maris is the winner! Hooray! It also just so happens to be her birthday this month, so that is incredibly timely. Hint: There may be some future book-related give away so stay tuned and pay close attention to the book reviews. You never know when a giveaway could pop up. They are wily!
Some other housekeeping items: I had a lot of questions about the Vegas.com post I ran last week or the week before. No, it was not sponsored in the sense that I was paid to write it, yes I was asked to promote a side project they had running for the month of April so I thought, why not? At this time I am not running ads or paid content, but when I do run a sponsored post for a business (meaning I get a product for free) I make it super clear. And I am always very honest and up front that if I don’t like a product I’m going to tell that story – just because I’m offered a product to review does not mean I’m going to fluff it up all over town.
And finally! I forgot about a little feature that will be running every week with the Weekending posts – a little “Elsewhere” action. I remembered yesterday morning while I was sitting at my desk at work trying to stay away, but by that time it was too late. So to keep you entertained during the slow parts of your day, here is what I’ve been reading online lately.
- No, Seriously, Stop Abusing Antibiotics.
- High Fructose Corn Syrup needs some love. Well, maybe not.
