Guys, I want to get your input on some shit today, ok? Totally biznass post and nothing super funny or entertaining here, so if you wanna skip it, I won’t be offended.
I’m considering opening up a new section of the blog for Pintester Reviews, where I review products. I’m still playing around with the idea, but here’s some sample stuff I’ve done in the past, just to give you sort of an idea of the direction.
What I want to know is how you guys feel about it. Please to let me know?[poll id=”6″]
(There’s a poll embedded in this post, so if you’re reading somewhere other than the blog, click here to visit the page and vote in the poll.)
Also, here is a pole dancing joke because every time I do a poll, I think of pole dancing. I am mature like that.
I got nuthin funny to say, but I couldn’t leave a post with no comments!!
As long as the review is totally your real thoughts & not a ‘I hate this, but they’re paying me to say nice things’ type of thing, I’m okay with it.
you have to be honest, especially if the product sucks!
PLEASE CHANGE THE IPAD WEBSITE BACK, THE NEW VERSION SUCKS AND FEELS AND IF IT HAD EVEN MORE PUBLICITY ON IT
I voted on the as long as it is funny, but to be honest I just want more. Funny or not I am in.
ditto- I’m with Ms Mur
I voted for the “as long as it’s still funny, I’m in” option, but like a few other posters, I am a little worried about a potential bias??? I know you are unflinchingly honest (which I love), but maybe it might be harder to rip said product a new asshole if they gave it to you for free, or it might be linked with advertising on your sight? Not sure if that would be the situation, but that would be my only concern. When it comes to your posts, I’m “Skanky McGee”: I’ll take whatever you’re willing to give me, however which way you want to give it to me 😉
My husband was in a very similar pose to that cat last night – but there was farting involved.
Hopefully there was no beer and lighters involved.
Although I have to admit that every time I see one of these “sponsored” posts something inside of me screams “SELL-OUT!”, I don’t really mind them as long as they’re fun and you remain at least somewhat honest about the results. Just don’t cover the site with them and I’m good.
I would totes love if you reviewed stuff and admitted you don’t like it and would never buy it. I am a little skeptical of bloggers who “love love love” the products they received FOR FREE and wouldn’t have thought of spending their own money on it.
I double-voted. As long as your reviews are funny and I get a chance to win some stuff, I’m in. As other people have said, I am also skeptical of bloggers who OMGLOVE anything that they get for free from a sponsor. So as long as you keep it real, I support this new venture.
I’m all for it, too, unless there’s no hint of negativity about any product whatsoever which would make me (v. sadly) stop reading entirely (which I don’t want, I love reading this blog!). So, echoing what seems to be the general consensus, sounds like fun, as long as it’s more than just advertising.
I voted for “as long as it’s still funny, I’m in.” I realize that you may have to “sell” some stuff but hey, It’s YOUR blog and you can do what you want. A girl has to make a dollar on way or another and I doubt you’d be willing to pole dance for that money.
Looks like it would be a perfect tumblr blog.. I would follow even if it wasn’t always funny.
I agree with everyone else on “As long as that means more content, I’m in.” I’ve toyed with doing sponsored posts (even though my blog is already a giant advertisement for my Etsy store) but it basically comes down to, “Girl’s gotta make a living somehow.” I plan on quitting my job and focusing entirely on my site/store when I’ve gotten knocked up/shot a kid out of my vag, so I would probably start doing sponsored posts then.
Do it!! you are a very funny writer, and more of your stuff is good. That said, I trust you to let us know when you are being paid/sponsored /whatever the right word is….. and to tell the truth about the stuff… If it sucks – WARN us!! Give-aways are usually only for U.S. residents, so I don’t care about them cuz I’m Canadian (and we are above that shit anyway)(and I’m jealous)….. Love you madly….
I propose a new caption for the pic.
Pole dancing: as long as there’s a pussy on a pole, you’re doing it just fine.
[…] hey, remember when I asked you guys if it would be ok if I reviewed stuff on here and you said, sure ok, we guess so? Well today is my very first […]
