I did something crazy. It was Suburban Turmoil's fault.
I was on Twitter and announced that I would not be going to BlogHer this year for the first time in four years.
The outcry was deafening. Ok, not deafening, but Lisa Stone, Schmutzie, Joy Unexpected and a few others were nice enough to express dismay.
Then Lindsay suggested that I try to get Swingline to sponsor my trip to Chicago, the connection being clear and obvious and all. I have taken over 300 great photos featuring their best (in my humble opinion) product and some of the coolest bloggers in the known universe.
So I wrote them a letter. I think they should sponsor me. They would be crazy not to! I mean, LOOK at this!
That's famous blogger Pundit Mom modeling one of their products. This is marketing gold, people. If you can see that and not want a Red Swingline Stapler, well, there is something very wrong with you.
You can't PAY for publicity like that. Well, actually you can, and for a small stack of Benjamins, the BlogHer fun with the Red Stapler can continue for one more year.
How about it, Swingline? Deal, or no deal?
