As bloggers, we're fortunate to receive countless opportunities from organizations and companies all over the world. Some days our inbox overflows with exciting email invitations to invest in hair removal equipment, try out the latest in fashion eyewear... some even offer the promise of MILLIONS of dollars from very reputable banking organizations in China. Or is it Switzerland?
All from people who claim to be regular readers of our blog.
We receive requests for dates, dinners, hook ups... And it's not just us. We know a goat who received a marriage proposal via email. Even Waffles was a little shook up over that.
When the mood strikes us just right though, we actually respond.
That's precisely what happened yesterday when we received a personalized invitation to apply for a college scholarship through some Whatever.com company. "Jamie" had been looking through our site and discovered we had an excellent resources page for private scholarships.
Uh huh. And wouldn't it be great if we could write about their scholarship contest.
Uh huh. In fact, we could even enter it.

"Jamie" actually wrote us back!
If Waffles is enrolled in college, or plans on attending, he's ELIGIBLE!
P.S. And that fashion eyewear I mentioned? We responded to that one too: HERE
