The daft correspondence post redux.

I occasionally get emails from those who seem to imagine this blog has a far wider readership than it actually has asking whether they can either advertise here or if I'm willing to mention/review their product (the answer to which incidentally is no). This, however, is the first time I've been offered the chance to review a pair of Ugg boots:

Subject: Weird Idea for your site

I’ve also just launched a giveaway on my site and I was hoping perhaps you might consider very briefly mentioning it? I would very gladly send $80 via paypal for a brief mention. I'd also create an exclusive discount for your readers as well.. I was hoping to get support of fashion bloggers like yourself to help generate awareness of our brand. If this wasn't something you were interested in perhaps I could send you a pair of boots to review? Hope to hear from you soon!

Hope I haven’t wasted your time..

Best Wishes,

It was best, I thought, to keep the reply short and sweet:

You are taking the piss, aren't you?

To which sadly there has yet to be a response.


As you might have noticed I've finally got round to cleaning up the links, removing the deadwood, correcting the moved and shifting them all around a little. There's also a few "new" blogs linked; if for some inexplicable reason I've forgotten yours then drop in a comment and I'll see what I can do.

Well, you *have* mentioned his site, if not the way he wanted you to, so I reckon that $80 is yours. Email him back and demand it :)

I think it might then be me taking the piss ;)
