Why Do Bloggers Get Gifted Items?

One of the things I find difficult sometimes (and I’m sure you guys do too) is trying to explain to a non blogger just why a company will send you a product. I mean, why should a company send you an item to talk about it?

The new advert from Chrome does go some way to explain that. It isn’t going to make you cry (like that baby one) or creep you out (like the new one about a relationship through Google products) but it does make me smile.

This bit made me grin like a fool though:

Because see that link underneath (well, when you watch it)? You know who that is, don’t you?

It’s Jen! (I’m only slightly disappointed the bloggers map wasn’t near the top ;) Also, whoa, theres an extra 5 million entries since this ad was made? Insane.)

Its nice to see blogging, and especially fashion blogging (and even more so – UK blogs!), being shown on TV and showing what we have the power to do.
