I’m prickly. It’s no secret.
I’m not all that into promoting products and using this space for giveaways or coupons or anything like that. I’m more interested in the connections we all make. That being said, I do read almost every pitch that comes my way, and I share a lot of them on Facebook, Twitter and Posterous.
I got a pitch earlier from a brand who is giving away $10,000 worth of gift cards to inner city kids. This is good, but it’s not a remarkable amount of money. Certainly they’re spending more on Public Relations that surround the relatively small giveaway.
So, when I read the pitch, I replied with, “Have them kick in an additional $2,500 and I’ll share it with my readers.”
Because at that point in time this blog would be doing something kinda cool.
And ShutTheFuckUp about extortion. It’s a good cause.
