I was recently approached by Minted to work on a sponsored campaign together. Admittedly, I was skeptical about how to fit this in with my blog and what I do. Sure, Minted had business cards, which every blogger knows are a necessity, but I was mostly worried that the rest of the site would be filled with pink drapey things and flowery cards. Not very dadly.
I was so glad to find that while they did carry those items, they also had all sorts of cool things that I could get behind. As you can see from the cover photo, I chose a customizable journal and I couldn’t be happier with it! On top of the amazing quality of the journal, the ordering, customizing and delivery were all fast and easy. It even let me put in my own inspirational quotes, which was awesome, and I chose one of my favourites from Harriet Tubman:
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
Why did I pick the journal? Ever since I started blogging, it seems as though I have forgotten how to actually “write” anything anymore. I used to write ideas, stories and music in an old beat up binder but with today’s digital age, I find I’ve been sending emails to myself, taking eNotes and saving recorded messages on my phone in order to remember ideas. That’s great and all but I miss that personal feeling of putting pen to paper and now I am able to do that.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and product with Minted and hope you will give them a shot as well. You can also catch up with Minted on Facebook and Twitter, so please feel free to stop by and say hi for me.
