  • I feel kind of bad...

    All of my current clients whose emails I have, and those who are friends on Facebook get updates for my blog entries here. So,,,the last blog I entered was the "Looking For a Gift For Your Groomer Friend?" article...
    Now, this week I got a Les Poochs brush in the mail from an unknown sender, and I just got an Amazon.com gift card credit from a client as well. I am feeling really bad, because when I wrote the article,,I FORGOT that all of my clients got live feed or updates.
    I HOPE TO HECK that they don't think I wrote that article as a hint for gifts for me..man, do I feel like a schmuck.

    Oh man! That is kind of awkward. Well, I'm sure they wouldn't have given you anything if they didn't really like you! Just send heartfelt thank-you cards and don't feel too guilty about loving those awesome gifts.

      Maybe they'll see this post too and will understand and find it amusing!! I agree though that they wouldn't get you anything at all if they didn't want to.

        Can you send an email explaining your blog?

        Don't know what the best thing is to do now that it's out there.

        Stephen: Good idea but even then keep in mind blogs like tweets is about what's on my mind today. I suppose a properly worded blog entry follow up which would then be fed again could turn this around to every recipient, with a little joy and humor, no problem, and now on to the next matter at hand.

          Would it make you feel better if you thought I was the one who sent the LP brush? It wasn't, but you can think that if it makes you feel any better!

          Seriously though, I understand how you feel. I'm sure they wouldn't do it unless they really wanted to though and perhaps your blog just gave them some good ideas, instead of the usual popcorn tins and chocolates!

            OR maybe they saw it and appreciated some ideas! To be honest, if someone didn't WANT to give you a gift,they probably still wouldn't anyway despite your blog. The ones that did probably love the chance to give a gift they know you will like...instead of a fruit cake or something!

            (Plus-how awesome someone gave you a LP!)

              Honey don't feel bad. They would not have given you those gifts if they didn't believe you deserved them! I am sure you mean the world to most of your customers!

                  Well, I'm just assuming they get ALL of your articles if they are on your mailing list, no? If they do then they understand your intentions -to educate- AND maybe just MAYBE they took it for what it was and realized how much you mean to them

                    To be honest it's kinda funny. I do understand you feel like a smuck but hey you deserve gifts. It's not like your demanding a gift. Just do a follow up like Stephen said.

                      That's just too funny. I just say enjoy the gifts, I'm sure that you have more than earned them and your clients obviously agree

                        If it bothers you that much why not donate it to a local rescue? A win-win for all involved if you ask me

                          Ignore the Redneck Diva

                          LOL, absolutely do NOT take RD's advice! Just enjoy....they know you write educational articles and no one is twisting their arms to get you a gift.

                            Windy that is so AWESOME and funny!!! I doubt your clients thought you were soliciting gifts, but how cool is it that they love and care about you like that.

                            I would keep the gifts too. The clients got the gifts for YOU.

                              Wow. That's a bit embarassing. . . . and pretty darn awesome! Aren't you dying to figure out who sent the LP brush???
