Ok, so on occasion I’ve done product reviews at craftylauren.com, but this is definitely a first for me.
“I’m going to get sucked into a rolling payment for something I just wanted for free.”
I thought that too when Zinio first contacted me. My initial reaction was actually:
“Get lost, because I’m not interested in screwing the readers who actually take the time to give a crap about my life and the zillion Starbucks-es I visit.”
But this is totally legit.
Some of my fondest memories as a kid were leafing through my Mom’s Better Homes and Gardens or Country Home magazines and day-dreaming about my future decorating scheme. Ok, I still do this on a regular basis, but the point is: magazines are neat and Zinio is an online newsstand that hosts magazine subscriptions for your desktop, phone, or tablet. Sometimes I’m just not that into mobile formats of reading (which is totally weird considering the whole semi-professional blogger thing I have going on), but I also don’t like piles of magazines on my dining room table. If you’ve ever thought you might like to test out switching to a digital format, here’s your chance!
To kick off my favorite time of the year, Zinio and I are giving away 10 magazine subscriptions FOR FREE. There are only two strings:
1) Fill out the form below with your full name, email address, and magazine title chosen from Zinio.com (note: it’s an annual subscription, so the number of actual issues depends on the magazine). You don’t have to give me or Zinio ANY payment or personal information other than your email address.
2) In the comments below, tell me what your favorite magazine is and why.
The first 10 people to complete both these steps before Oct 15 win!
Oh, and if one title isn’t enough, or you miss the boat on the giveaway, all home, design, and garden related magazines are 50% off until October 8! For more information, visit http://bit.ly/ziniohome
