(Important Update: This post was written last night.Â Please disregard the information in this post, as BlogLux went out of business this afternoon)
In the past, I have avoided using my personal blog as a marketing tool, using my readers as a targeted demographic.Â But my opinion has completely changed after I was pitched the concept of the BlogLux Network by the founder and CEO of this amazing service, Albert M. Miffler.
The BlogLux Network has a simple philosophy:Â We are living in wonderful economic times, and bloggers are one of the most influential consumer groups.Â With so many wonderfulÂ luxury itemsÂ out there on the market, blog readers are constantly looking to “tastemakers,” sophisticated A-listers like myself, to help them make purchases from the growing American market forÂ high-end goods.
In today’s great economy, it was impossible to say “no” to such an amazing opportunity, especially when I can share it with YOU, my dear blogging friends!
Starting today, I will be dividing my time between my usual postsÂ AND articles writtenÂ forÂ my new role as a BlogLux Enthusiast.Â Consider me your “ShoppingÂ Maven,”, the ultimate influencer and luxurty item trend-setter who LOVES to connect with YOU.
Why do I want to do this for YOU?Â Because YOU RAWK!!!Â You are all high-achievers, comfortable withÂ your disposable income — and consumers who want the best, expect the best, and demand the best!Â Remember, we’re the ones with the purchasing power.Â We run the show!
Did you just get a big bonus at work?Â Making a killing on tech stocks?Â Selling your home for a big profit during this booming market?Â Â Are you looking for high-end furniture for your second home?Â A diamond pendant for the wife?Â A gold-encrusted Bugaboo stroller for the littlest “stock broker?”
When you think LUXURY, think BlogLux and Citizen of the Month.
Each week, I was showcasing the latest and greatest exclusive luxury item, hand-picked especially by me — for YOU.
I am incredibly excited by this unique opportunity. I LOVE to shop and network with my friends about the hottest consumer products, especiallyÂ during these good times!
This week’s “Citizen of the Month” Luxury Pick:
TheÂ Cartier Ballon Bleu in 18k gold, with sapphire crystals and diamonds on the bezel and dial.
Only $46,000.Â Â Contact me NOW!Â Â They’re going fast…
sapphire crystals are SO last season. i’m heading over to dooce for some hot fashion advice from UTAH.
Oh pooh, I’ve already got three. But looking forward to your next pic, as my penthouse on Central Park just sold for 2xmarket value. Ta, dahling!
I would be more impressed if you tried to sell me the Bugatti Veyron. In such times of financial windfall, I expect only to be sold the most luxurious items available. A private island would also be acceptable. Please do better.
No, you rawk Neil. YOU rawk.
I assume you can provide the credit I need to purchase this watch (at the interest rate of your choosing, of course).
I don’t know. It does look a bit cheap. I think I’m going to head over to Dooce’s with V-Grrrl.
you’re gonna have to do better than that. I got a yarn necklace today with a light blue clear plastic bear from my little fella KueYoung. He even made me a matching bracelet. (aren’t kindergarteners the best?)
I have only one question.
Does it take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’?
If not, I’m going to pop for a Rolex.
Hardy har har.
I think a guy tried to sell me that same watch on the street. But he said it would only cost me $100. He had it right there on the inside of his coat.
Where’s the GPS?
I was waiting for the private jet! Why oh why did you have to go out of business before I got my jet?
Umm..I think there’s been a mistake. I think you’ve mistaken us for somebody else. Another country, perhaps.
If I had a dollar for every one of those watches that I’ve purchased over the countless years, then I’d have zero dollars.
or some shit like that.
I wrote a similar response to an actual pitch I got to push some sort of product related to penises. I didn’t have the guts to publish it, though.
Nice update. So sorry to hear about the demise of what would have been a breathtakingly beautiful partnership.
Hmmm…the face of that watch seems so small and unobtrusive. Do you have anything in a Grandfather Clock/Big Ben style? And a leather strap?
Well, it WAS a wonderful idea!
denial. apparently, not always the answer.
DAMMIT…out of business? NOW where I am going to buy my next tiara?
have you bumped your head?
Christine, I’ve already cornered the market on tiaras.
I’ll buy ten please!
