Product Placement

How much would you sell your soul for? Me? Probably about $5 and some change. Seriously.

You know that saying:
Give a man a fish; he eats for a day.
Teach a man to fish; he eats for a lifetime.

Well, give me something free and I am yours for the day. Give me many things for free, I'll be your whore for life. My buddy Metrodad was recently approached by some PR firms to review some products and then post about them on his blog. Good or bad thoughts, he got keep the products.

Any his first product, a DVD camcorder! Can you freaking (I give it four stars-can I have one?) believe it? His comment section filled with many other whores people willing to test drive some products. I, of course, was one of them. I even figured the gay" thing would work to my advantage. We are 10% of the market, you know.

As you may guess, I haven't been contact just yet. So instead, I decided to be proactive and 'advertise' the products I like best. You will now see a monthly promotion on my blog with the hopes that I get some cool stuff you learn more about some great products. Then, my pets, you can have the good fortune of shopping for the items we both know and love.

The first product is Aveda’s body & bath line. We use the shampoo, conditioner, soap and shaving cream. It is awesome and a little goes a long way. You don’t need a lot product to get the job done. What’s best is the Rosemary Mint ‘flavor’. It has a vibrant ‘wake-me-up’ scent and tingles your skin when you use it. WARNING: don’t leave it on ‘the boys’ too long because it’s like sticking your sack in a peppermint patty. And a little on the pricey side, it’s still worth every penny.

Feel free to comment (the soon-to-be-sponsors love that) and be sure to say how much you value this blogger's opinion.

And if you are a corporation or firm that promotes these products, I'd welcome anything you might send my way.

Phishing Pole out and ready.

Steve check to see if these products have affiliate links. Many of them do and will pay you a commission.

Let me know if this works.

I'm still trying to figure out how to get one of those portable DVD players for free. I'm not proud.

Hey, I'm indirectly whoring Mentos and Diet Coke on my blog today! It's not really whoring unless you're getting paid for it. I'm not a product whore; I'm more of a product slut.

A while ago I made Cheez-its the official snack cracker of my blog. A little while later I got a coupon for 50 cents off a box. Coincidence? I think not. Even though I got it out of the Sunday paper, I'm sure the makers of Cheez-its knew which Sunday paper would wind up on my doorstep.

Not a bad idea, my friend. I was raving about a ridiculously expensive stereo system I wanted on my blog a while back and the PR guy wrote and offered me...a discount. Dude, I want FREE, not 10% of a gazillions dollars! But it was a start.

And I'm with you...love the rosemary mint conditioner, personally.

I think you're onto something. I reviewed our new coffeemaker a couple of months ago with the intent of reviewing stuff monthly. Hasn't happened...
