What? Isn’t everybody a Christian?

This email was sent to several bloggers with someone else's name in the “dear….”. And it was sent to several bloggers of the Jewish faith as well. Which isn’t a huge crime, unless one of the bloggers who received this is an actual Jewish Rabbi and their entire blog is only about Judaism. Again, it is a “we have a great product! Nope I haven’t read your site! No we aren’t going to even send you a sample- but please go advertise it on your blog k?” email. Well, you are getting your Christmas wish…here you go…

Dear XXXX,

I have partnered with another XXXXXXX Mom to form a brand new company called Santa's Signature.  Our company specializes in gift wrap, gift tags and thank you notes featuring the official signature of the "one and only" Santa Claus.  The true test for the authenticity of Santa's Signature is to look for the notary stamp.  Each official Santa's Signature features the seal of approval from Noelly, the North Pole Notary.

Your loved ones will know they are at the top of the NICE LIST when they awaken to gifts wrapped with Santa's Signature on Christmas morning.

Please read the attached press release, visit our website at www.santassignature.com and spread the news.  Have an authentically magical Christmas.

Thank you for your consideration,

Suzette Ford-Duffus

Another promote us for free without even a purty please.

Received by a blogger who says "the part about 'let me know your interest in promoting on your site' made me laugh. Okay I will let you know lady. My interest is ZERO. Unless you are paying me."

Dear Mom Blogger-
As a mom of four-year-old twins, I know that a mother’s to-do list is never-ending.

Moomie.com helps you give and get the gifts you want by letting you create and browse personal gift profiles. It takes just 30 seconds to create a profile for you and your family. Then, you can add gifts in seconds, including make-up, clothes, sports equipment for your husband, books for your kids or anything else your heart desires. Once your friends and family post their profiles, then choosing the perfect gift will be quick and easy. Not limited to just the holidays, you can make lists for all occasions (birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, etc.).

Please let me know your interest in featuring Moomie on your site. I will follow up with you shortly to discuss this opportunity further, but in the meantime, feel free to contact me at pamelagrantrosin@yahoo.com or 310/433-2201.

Many thanks,
