Once in a while, an email floats into my inbox, inquiring if, since I blog, I would like something or other to be sent to me to use and review.
I used to email back and politely decline, and then I skipped that step and started simply deleting such offers--not because there's anything wrong with reviews, but because I just haven't chosen to make that a part of my blog. And so I never accept those offers.
Until the day I did. :)
You see, I got an email from Perry Springman, a homeschool dad and musician, about a children's music CD he had made. Would I like one? he asked.
At first I thought I would treat his email like the rest, but then I took a moment to look at his website...and then I listened to a sample of his songs...and then my kids started listening, too...and then it was pretty much a given that we would be accepting his offer. :)
Bottom line: I like all the songs, and I'm already hoping that the Springmans (his kids perform with him, which I LOVE) will decide to make another children's CD someday.
Looking back, I'm so glad I didn't push the "delete" button on Perry's email. It was an offer that I'm thrilled that I said yes to! :)
