I receive several pitches, some good, some bad and some plain ugly. I wanted to post my reply to one of my pet-peeves.

Dear Mommy Blogger,

We have this fabulous contest on our site and we know the readers of Mommy Niri would want to know about it. Please post about it and send us the link of it when you are done.

Dear Mommy Blogger,

I am following up on my previous email to promote our contests. The contest is closing soon and I am sure Mommy Niri readers would not want to miss out. If you need high resolution images please let me know. I look forward to seeing your post on it.

And my reply…….

Dear I-can’t-believe-I-am-taking-time-to-write-to-you,

This week on my blog I have a fabulous contest for XXX and I am sure all your colleagues and friends would love to know about it. I am sure they would not want to miss on this fabulous chance and they get to discover an amazing blog too. I would love to be included in the CC on any of those emails you send out. If you need high-resolution pictures let me know.

Regards,
