Woof and I talked about possibly doing reviews and giveaways when we started this blog. We considered how cool it would be to be able to try new things and then share our experiences with our readers, and even share the product itself! However, I believed that these opportunities would just come our way if we waited a little while, and that just wasn't true. After I realized that wasn't working, I joined She Blogs and Business 2 Blogger, thinking that would bring offers to us, but it turns out that mostly works for the bigger blogs, and not so much for the smaller ones. Finally, I decided to try to email some places I felt fit our readers, our blog, and our lifestyle perfectly. This was probably one of the best ideas I've had in months! The first place I contacted, Dorm Co., agreed to do a guest post and giveaway on this blog (hint: the product is a must have for college students). You could have knocked me over with a feather, I was so surprised and excited to be working with them! I emailed more places, and I have yet to receive an email with a flat 'no!' While one company said they can't do it right now, they did leave possibility open in the future, and I'm really excited to have made that contact! Also, Country Bob's All-Purpose Sauce agreed to a review and giveaway on the blog as well!
The blog will still be, at its' heart, a blog run by and for college students. We'll still update on our lives, interesting things that happen, and occasional lists (I sure make enough of them!), but we're also going to add in reviews, giveaways, and pretty soon I'm going to start posting about deals that students (and their families) might like as well! I'm really excited about this new development in the blog, and I can't wait to see where it takes us!
This song is so cute, I just know everyone is going to love it!
