Aly's Newsletter: TGIF Edition!
Here's what I'm working on:
1 - For RetailMeNot, I've wrapped up gift guides for those who enjoy reading and the one about coffee lovers -- however, I am still open to pitches about great fruitcakes with online retail.
2 - For RetailMeNot, I'm also working on a story on Best Strapless Bras that are so comfortable, they don't even feel like strapless bras. When pitching me, please include a quick description of the product and what it does, and some specs, as well as price and where sold. You have a far greater chance of being included if on a major online retailer.
3. For Spy.com, I'm working on a story on best mouse traps (yeah, what can I say, my work is elegant) - we won't recommend glue traps, or anything that allows any suffering. I'm going to be including only traps that kill instantly, poison painlessly, or allow for catch/release. Also from major online retailers only.
4. Also for Spy.com, in honor of National Coffee Day, I'm doing a roundup of great coffee brands. Would be the coffee version of this story (https://spy.com/articles/lifestyle/food-drink/best-tea-brands-219313/), so please keep that format in mind when pitching. Must include online retail when pitching. This story will be published early next week so please send all pitches by first thing Monday morning.
5. For both AllRecipes and HerMoney, I'm working on stories I could use RDs and nutritionists to comment on - if that is you or your client, please email me asap for more info and what I'm working on.
For all of these, I'd love responses by Monday afternoon - but sooner is always better. Emails only please! firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's some stories that have been published since yesterday.
