Bloggers: Don’t Hit Delete, Hit Reply

I recently read a blog post from Trisha over at MomDot about a pitch she received from a PR firm which reminded me about something I have been doing lately, making sure I am getting paid or receiving product valuable to me or my readers! I don’t want something I will never use again, but when you first start getting your blog known to PR firms it is normal to want to take on every opportunity for fear they won’t bring on another opportunity. They will pitch again, just kindly let them know why this product doesn’t fit your audience or your lifestyle but to keep you in mind for any future opportunities and they will.

Back to my point of this blog post, bloggers don’t hit delete, hit reply! The reason I say this is because I used to hit delete more often than not when I received a blind pitch from someone I have never worked with if it didn’t fit my blog, if I was booked on reviews or if the pitch was just plain blah. Bloggers you know what I mean by blah!

What I have been doing recently with these pitches that I may not be able to work with now is to send them my Media & Ad Rate Kit, why? Well because even if they are a PR firm they have some pull in what they can do for you, so maybe you don’t want to review a particular product but you like another product, the person who pitched you may be able to hook you up with what will work best to promote their client.

More often than not I have been getting people interested more and more in SEO for their company website, which means paid content! Paid content is awesome and if you have a media & ad rate kit already created then you could simply do a quick reply to this person, attach the kit and voila it took two minutes of your time to see if they reply yes, no or not at all. You see, I don’t let it get me down when I hear no and I don’t let it get me down if I never hear back from some people I hit reply to because I know tomorrow is another day!

As more and more businesses see that bloggers have a BIG reach and HIGH influence they will start to hop on board working with us so just make sure you don’t hit delete, hit reply and sound professional but to the point. Don’t work for less than you are worth and don’t take on something you are not 100% interested in because you want your readers to hear the passion behind your writing when doing product reviews!

Mars Needs Moms on DVD August 9th

I happened to watch Mars Needs Moms in the theater and my whole family fell in love with this movie. One of my favorite parts is when the martians are looking for more moms to have on their planet to raise the little ones because it is clear that the martians know a good mom when they see one. As much as I could go on and on about the various parts I LOVE in this movie, I will keep it secret so that you can enjoy this movie for yourself but please come back and leave a comment telling me what part you liked the best if you purchase this awesome family movie!

Seth Green and Joan Cusack are the best in this movie, of course it is just their voice. Seth plays the little boy and Joan is his “don’t’ put up with anything” Mom. I mean these two play their voice characters so well!  If I had to sum up this movie in words I would say:

Mars Needs Moms is an incredible, funny, heart warming family friendly movie that every parent must see! Mars Needs Moms truly shares the power of the love between a mother and child.

There isn’t much more than that to say, and when I received the home DVD combo pack for my family to review I was blown away by the special features. Of course I need to get a Blu-Ray player so that I can actually watch the extras only included on the Blu-Ray version. For now I watched the special features on the DVD which are:

  • Martian 101 – Speaking Martian with lessons from an expert.
  • Fun with Seth – Featurette showcasing the on-set antics of Seth Green and Dan Fogler.

It was hilarious watching my kids try to speak Martian, seriously! I think every kid needs to see that special feature that is included on the DVD version of Mars Needs Moms! The fun with Seth was great too, it is so weird to watch them with the dots on their faces as two grown men goof around! It would be fun to experience being an animated part of this movie! I would have loved a place where we could go and goof around then see what we look like on screen.

I give this movie TWO thumbs up and if I had more thumbs I would give Mars Needs Moms all of the thumbs up I had!

Preoder this DVD on Amazon.com

Disclosure: I received this DVD for free. All opinions are based on my own family’s experience watching the DVD and special features.
