Collaboration Opportunities I’d love to have as a blogger
As bloggers, we sometimes get wonderful opportunities that come our way. For example a product to review or an experience to try out with our family. There may be a campaign we wish to support or a place we plan to visit and working with PR and Brands allows us to experience such opportunities.
Blogging opportunities are not completely free. There is always work involved, we have to take photos, write content and advertise our posts. There is often a lot of background work and emails and messages involved and unless we post content regularly and keep our blog popular, (unless we work our butts off) the pr opportunities wont come.
Over the past months I’ve had the chance to work with some fantastic brands. My favouirte experience so far was visiting the Kensington Premier Inn in London and the Buckingham Palace State Rooms. You can read these reviews if you like.
The best Project/Campaign I’ve worked on so far was with GyaneHealthUK. I got to meet Dr Pixie from (ITV’S Embarrassing Bodies) and learn all about Cervical Cancer and the HPV virus. It was an educational experience and something I now feel quite passionate about- preventing Cervical Cancer.
I’m excited to be a Parragon Book Buddy and look forward to reviewing a new children’s book every month. I’ve enjoyed reviewing some fabulous food products and it’s always great to give my daughter little gifts every now and again as they arrive in the mail.
Having said this, I have been thinking about the Top ten “PR” opportunities I’d love to do as a blogger and so without any more rambling here goes.
A Fabulous Holiday
I would love the opportunity to go on a family vacation with John and Sylvia. Although we spent 2 days in London, there was a lot of blog work involved and it would be great to go and relax somewhere lovely in the UK or further abroad. It would be great to test out a flight company and visit my family in New Zealand. I’d love to go to Disneyland with Sylvia and John or even better go on the Disney Cruise Ship. This would be a dream come true. How about a Honeymoon? Once I get better in the future I plan to go on a real honeymoon with my hubby, even if it does end up being 5 years late!
It would be fabulous as a blogger to have the opportunity to furnish Sylvia’s bedroom. Her bed is getting old and will need replacing eventually. Sylvia has always had an old wardrobe with no doors. We placed a curtain on it to pretty it up but it would be great to one day get her a fantastic working wardrobe to hang all her clothes. Some things are wants rather than needs and our money has to go on more essential items right now but decorating and creating an awesome child’s room is certainly on my top ten list.
One of the biggest reasons I blog or started blogging was to raise awareness about my health condition Adrenal Insufficiency and my desire to improve my quality of life with an Adrenal Pump. The Adrenal Pump is made by Medtronic and I’d love to work with this brand and test out the waterproof Mini Med Adrenal Pump. That is the ultimate dream and I’ll keep working towards this!
I’d love the opportunity to work with a smart phone and or computer company and to test out the latest technology. John and I are big technology geeks. That’s for sure and love trying out new gadgets and products. Yes I’m married to a supergeek.
Whitewear and Electronics
It would be fabulous to review white wear products such as a washing machine, one of those new Dyson electronic fans, kitchen essentials and a vacume cleaner. This would be fun and useful at the same time. I look froward to testing out electronics in the future should the opportunity arise.
I’d love the chance to go on some family adventures. Of course with my illness, I need to rest up before hand and maybe even have a place to stay during the the day as I can only manage a few hours at a time but it would be great to take my daughter to do some fun activities and visit interesting places.
Spa and Beauty
I’m a huge fan of spa. massage and beauty treatments and would love the chance to review a Day Spa with my husband John. Ooh just the thought of this sends shivers down my back! A relaxing massage and resting in a warm Jaccuzi. Lovely!
Children’s Clothing and Products
I’d love to test out more Children’s clothing and products for children such as toys, dolls and exciting educational activities. This is always fun and gives me the chance to do something new and fun with my daughter. We always love new parcels in the mail and it makes life more exciting when I’m stuck in the home unwell and unable to window shop.
I’d love to do more work on my blog to Improve my health and promote the health of children and mothers. I do feel very passionate about Healthy living and want my readers to have the best quality of life possible. It would be great to work with a weight loss company such as Diet Chef and to work on campaigns to raise awareness about illnesses, diseases or campaigns which need support and awareness for the benefit of mothers and children. This is something I look forward to doing in the future and I hope I can make a difference in people’s lives.
Thanks for reading my PR Blogging Wishlist. I wonder how many of these things I may get to to do in the future? At the end of the day, any opportunities will be down to hard graft so I’ll keep chipping away each day to blog the best I can and see what options come my way.
