The best perk I've received as a mom blogger is ______________.

Mom bloggers are constantly getting treated like online royalty from receiving free products for review, getting exclusive discounts and giveaway opportunities and even being flown all over the country for corporate trips. What is the best perk you've ever received as a mom blogger?

My top three company "perks":

1. Walt Disney World - trip for me (as a mom blogger) & a separate trip for my entire family (I was covering an event there)
2. method - threw a "birthday" party for me last year
3. Nintendo - Wii/DS/video games

(I think that it's smart when companies invest in bloggers. Many of my readers have emailed me about having purchased these companies' services/products after...)
Y'all are going to kill me for this because it makes me sound wildly successful, but trust me: none of these paid the bills:

A laptop
A flip cam
A trip to the Olympics in Beijing
I feel the best perk is all the people I have met! Of course the revew items like the Keurig and Flip and IHome speakers are AWESOME but it's the connections to so many fabulous women in business that I cherish the most!
Ooh, the Olympics trip sounds like fun (but I totally understand the "not paying the bills" aspect!)
Yep, two days ago I sat on a Digital Moms Panel at Google for Kellogg execs, and I kid you not, they gave us boxes of cereal. CEREAL. I swiped a few rice krispie treats for the kids, though.
Ha! Get this...I was invited to attend the Digital Moms Panel, but they didn't have it in their budget to fly me out. Whatever! We give so much, don't we?
Want the Google laptop skin I won't be using? If you'd seen the trays and trays of sushi and sandwiches left over... that would have paid for a ticket AND hotel.
You made me laugh out loud. We need to stand up in rebellion and say: Our time is valuable -- pay us!
Wow, you girls are all rocking the blogging world, that is so fantastic. I wish I was getting perks like these.
I just don't get it.
I certainly wish I had a clue how to begin.......

- A trip to Blogher 2009

I'd LOVE to go to Disney World or Disney Land and blog about it. What a great opportunity you had Kimberly :)
