The postman only had to ring once to deliver the giant mystery box at our house.  We were expecting a few small packages to be delivered, but this one was almost as big as me.  Eagerly ripping it open, inside we found it was stuffed full of fun surprises.  It was Christmas all over again, thanks to MyBlogSpark.

Many of you may remember my recent post on Internet Moonlighting where I mentioned a marketing company called MyBlogSpark, located in America.  While I couldn’t personally sign up with them and try them out due my being overseas, their customer service was so outstanding and friendly I thought they deserved mention.

I was already impressed with their efficiency and professionalism.  They were very personable with their responses to my initial questions and the individual I was exchanging emails with, Courtney Rauch, won me over as a forever fan.  The huge goody box was just icing on the cake… MyBlogSpark had me at first email.  Here’s a list of everything that arrived in the box, along with a beautiful hand written letter from Courtney:

  • Chocolate Spa Collection Gift Set
  • Betty Crocker Homestyle Creamy Butter Mashed Potatoes with measuring cup, spoon and potholder
  • Yoplait Delights Parfait Vanilla scented candle (on my desk now & it smells like yum!)
  • 24 count box Crayola crayons (made with solar power… more green then just the color)
  • Cute refrigerator magnet from Kibbles’nBits
  • Compact mirror from General Mills
  • Insulated lunch bag by Built featuring a French Bull pattern
  • 4 Piece exfoliating shower scrubber set by Cabana Bay
  • Awesome soup mug from Progresso Soup (husband’s preferred bowl now)
  • Sport blanket by LogoMark
  • Green plastic coupon file
  • Silicon pot holder by Norpro
  • Awesome Bamboo bowl from Totally Bamboo Basics
  • Stainless steel travel mug from Nature Valley
  • 250 piece Memories scrapbooking kit by Paper Boutique
  • Large zippered reusable shopping tote from myBlogSpark (excellent for Australia where you have to bring your own bag!)
  • MyBlogSpark button
  • Personalized letter from Courtney and the team

  1. Resources including the one you talked about here will be really helpful to me! I will publish a link to this web page on my weblog. I am certain my visitors will find that very helpful.

  2. How cool! I’m in the US and have worked with MyBlogSpark. I have the Nature Valley stainless steel bottle, and I’ve tried to win several of those other prizes (like the Chocolate Spa Kit!). Enjoy!

  3. Nice review! This is truly the type of post that should be shared around the internet. Sad on the Yahoo for not positioning this article higher!
