Turns out that PR doesn’t rock at all
Months ago I blogged about being solicited to review some plastic food packaging product for this blog, and indeed never received the product. My blog entry about not receiving the product produced inquiries from the PR firm. The followed up with the “client” who was going to send me the product. Then weeks later, I still hadn’t received the product, and the PR person promised to pick some up at the store and send them to me directly.
I never received anything.
Yesterday I received an email from another person at the PR firm asking me if I’d be interested in sampling and reviewing the next product they are launching.
I passed. The whole thing was silly and ironic and curious, but it runs the risk of becoming annoying, so it’s clearly time to step away. I don’t have free crap, I have a correspondence relationship and a blog topic. No thanks.
