Sometimes I have to laugh at the emails I get from folks wanting to place ads on the blog. They often try to imply that they’ve been long time blog readers. Some will even pick an older post and go into great detail about why they loved that particular post and I know they just randomly picked a post and had never seen my blog before they decided to target me for an ad.
This morning I was reading email and I cracked up. I knew with the first sentence that she has never read a single blog post:
I have been looking through your blog, and your creativity and talent in home decor lends itself to a beautiful home!
Me? Talented in home decor? Beautiful home? Are you kidding? There’s nothing about home decorating that interests me. Give me a garden, some yarn, a few critters and I’d be happy living in a tent so long as it has indoor plumbing and air conditioning. I sometimes walk through Hobby Lobby and am tempted to pick up a few things and then I come to my senses and realize . . no . . I am not a decorator. In fact, when we moved in over 4 years ago, I asked the sellers just to leave nails in the walls and I’d put something on them. Do you think I have ever put anything on the nails? No!
We’d love if you could showcase how you personally use flowers to decorate your home (or space) through a post on your blog!
Me use fresh flowers to decorate? First, only weeds bloom in my yard and second, I’d have to go to town to buy fresh cut flowers and that happens so rarely and then, with all the “stuff” we have in this house, I’d have to hang them from the ceiling fans!
So, Community Coordinator with the “flower group”, you might want to pay a little more attention to the blogs you say you “look through”. I would be of totally no benefit to you at all! 🙂
