State of the Blog: Giveaway and Housekeeping
Apr 15, 2014
About This Week
It’s going to be a crazy week at my house. The big move commences tomorrow, and the packing has decimated my will to live. Posting should be back to normal on Thursday, but for right now, my free hours are dedicated to lovingly wrapping my knick-knacks in bubble paper. So things are going to be a bit hectic, so I’ll be in the comments and on social media a bit less until things settle down.
NCAA Tournament Giveaway
Congratulations to the winners (e-mail at the capitolhillstyle (at) gmail address to claim your prize), it was a crazy year. Thank you to everyone who participated, I’ll see you next year.
A Word on Featured Posts
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I don’t often do sponsored or featured posts. The rare exceptions are made for brands or products that I already use and love (Lo & Sons, M.M. LaFleur) or brands that I think my readers will love (Astley Clarke). And even if I host a feature, I would rather have an item for myself and one for a giveaway than cash for my endorsement.
Over the next few months, I have a couple of sponsored posts coming up. I know some of you have said that you don’t like these types of posts, and they’re not going to become the norm here, but the upcoming posts are for brands that I love and I think you will too.
I take my recommendations for products seriously, and that’s why I buy the vast majority of featured and reviewed products myself. Frankly, I don’t like being told what I should write about something, and spending my own money gives me that freedom. So please understand that I wouldn’t support a product just because they’re gifting me or paying me, and even when it is a sponsored post, I negotiate the deals to maintain that integrity.
