Is anyone else getting solicited about "special offers for bloggers like YOU"? I got one email that seemed legit, but still haven't responded to since I've been way too busy to be online much, but then today, after 48 hours internet-free, I find a "special offer" to run ads for some company that Gmail is convinced is spam (and I think I agree).
Now, I would not be opposed to having ads for fabric, quilting, etc running on my blog, if they were not obtrusive, and I could get paid in yardage. :D

I wouldn't even mind putting a button or two up for some of the really awesome fabric sites I stalk, especially if I ever bite the bullet and buy from them (still trying to decide what I would Do with all that lovely fabric I see).

But random companies of which I've never heard?

When I'm not even blogging much these days due to work?
(And probably won't be until the golf course slows down?)

Things like this are why the internet annoys me.... there are so many crooks and swindlers out there is becomes difficult to determine who is legit and who just wants to steal my identity or hack into my ever-growing digital photo album of the most adorable dogs in the world.

I guess my point is this:
I have no way of verifying the legitimacy of any unknown company, so for now, I will trust Gmail: if the Google Gods label you SPAM, then I shall have to agree rather than risk anything. Sorry.

  1. o,...I hope I won't be "spam"...although, my hips could resemble something with that description lol.

    I think your "puppies" are cute. What kind of dogs are they? We have a Bullmastiff...with a few similarities.

    You have some really cute quilt things on your blog too. =)
