A quick lesson in blogger relations before I give you the goodies. Say you are a PR person and you want to inform a blogger about a contest to win a trip. Don’t copy all the contest details and then paste them into the comments section of a blog. Instead, maybe write a quick note about the contest and email it to the blogger. That way is so much more personal and the blogger will appreciate it. If they are interested they will write about it or tuck it away in their pocket for a rainy day topic (a quick shout out to Amy K. for always getting this right!).
On that note, here is an excellent opportunity to win a trip to the U.S.V.I – your choice of St. Croix, St. John, or St. Thomas for six nights courteous of Johnson and Johnson.
Here’s the deets:
