As you may or may not have guessed, I’m quite happy to promote or endorse pretty much anything people send me. Not because I get paid and not because I get free stuff (although that’s always nice) but mainly because I’m too busy to blog (nine features and a web series at the moment) yet feel a constant nagging guilt if I don’t post more than once a week or so.
So when someone emails me and asks if I can spread the word about something or other, my answer is an immediate ‘thank fuck for that’. I suppose I should vet some of these, or even read them, but that defeats the object of fobbing people off with stuff which takes no thought/time/effort.
With that in mind, apparently:
