Sometimes it is awesome…sometimes it is just plain weird!
Being a blogger sometimes you are treated to amazing perks. For example, meeting cool people, running with Runner’s World, or even getting to be a part of Team Reebok.! Some days you get awesome snacks delivered to your door step like this great case of Chobani that arrived in the mail the other day! (Thanks Chobani!)
We ate a lot of it so far and found Cooper LOVES blueberry. He cried when we finished the container! Add that to the grocery list..
With so many great perks it is easy to forget that sometimes blogging can just be weird. A couple of weeks ago I got a random email from an advertising firm that wanted to send me something secret. They would not divulge what it was and I was pretty skeptical. I initially was going to say no, but then seeing that other FitFluential girls got the same email I decided to accept (but had it sent to my mom’s house).
It definitely was weird, but I had some hope that maybe it would be something cool. About two weeks later, my mom got this package in the mail.
#POTB. It is a pat on the back kit.
I must have laughed for like 5 minutes at the absurdity of it all. Planet Fitness wants to bring back the “Old Fashioned Pat on the Back.” As I went to toss it in the trash, I realized these foam fingers are PRICELESS.
I brought it to school and every time a student asks “what they get?” for a game or a job well done, I raise the finger and say a “Pat on the Back!” They hate it so much. I predict that finger will be in hundreds of pieces soon.
Anyhow, if anyone goes to Planet Fitness if they get enough #potb hashtags they are going to give you something like cupcakes to negate all the calories you burned. Seems silly but hey marketing is marketing and it has made my classroom just that much more fun!
Question: If any of you are bloggers, what is the weirdest thing that blogging has brought into your life?
