I hope you're having a great week! My name is XXXXX and I came across My Journey to Fit back in October while looking for healthy living inspiration.
I wanted to reach back out to you because I thought you might be interested in sparking a conversation about the best post-workout snacks. From beginners to seasoned workout veterans, many people don't know how to properly refuel after a sweat session. We'd love to see an upcoming post on your blog that shares some of your favorite post-workout snacks to inspire others to get the most out of their workout recovery.
Just let me know if you are interested and I would love to provide you with more details!
Yours in health,
I get several emails like yours on a weekly basis and usually just delete them, but I'm curious - will you pay for this post? Why would I spark a conversation about post-workout snacks otherwise?
Hoping to hear what's in this for me, because I honestly don't know...
Just to be clear, this is a daily occurrence. And no, even if they offered to pay me, I wouldn't do that...which is why you aren't seeing a post written about martial arts - that was the rare email who did offer me a cool $30 to write a sponsored post for their company, but I'm not in this for the money, obviously.
Thanks so much for getting back to me! We have found that this is a very hot topic that people are looking for more information on and have had bloggers write on it using us as a resource to their readers. These posts have received many great comments and are helpful for those seeking to live a healthier lifestyle. We would love for you to participate, but unfortunately, for this project we are not looking to partake in sponsored placements or monetary exchanges- I'm really sorry about that. However, we are running social exchanges with some of the posts we receive. That being said, I completely understand how much work goes into a successful blog and I also understand if this doesn't fit within your blogs requirements. I appreciate you following up with me.
Now, if Hoka would send me free shoes, sure, I'll write a post about them - but I've already done that, just because I liked the shoes and wanted to share that. So I guess I screwed myself out of a potential freebie, dang it. Sadly for my bank account, no one is beating down my door offering me things that I really want, and would love to review, like running gear or yarn.
Oh well, such is life. And hey, at least not making any money from this blog means I don't have to report anything on my taxes and try and figure THAT out, so I've got that going for me. Happy Income Tax Day to my fellow Americans - hope you've got your taxes filed and had no unexpected surprises in the form of having to pay. We made out OK, but I sure miss our little deductions...darn them for growing up!
