Earlier today, It was suggested to me that I sign up with what appeared to be a kind of online app that allowed bloggers to be matched with potential sponsors. Given that Zennie62.com has over 11,000 blog posts (actually over 12,000) and has been around since 2005 (when it started life as a blogger blog), covered the NFL Draft, The Oscars, and two Democratic National Conventions, not to mention the Consumer Electronics Show for three straight years (2013 is the latest) and Wonder Con and Comic Con, it’s a cinch that a reputable firm would want to team with us.
