SEA WORLD, here I come!
A few weeks ago I got an email asking if I wanted to participate in “Manta Media Day” … actually, the wording was hilarious, so I’ll print a bit of it here:
Great news! You’ve been selected as one of the bloggers to attend the Manta Media Day at SeaWorld on May 21st and the VIP party that evening. If you are willing to come a day early/stay a day late SeaWorld can arrange for you to go to Aquatica and Busch Gardens as well as special SeaWorld interactions such as shark deep dive or beluga whale swim.
Great news! I have no idea who the other bloggers are, but I guess I’ll find out soon. :)
Anyway, I called them back and said that it sounded like fun, and I would do it, but only if they let me bring a friend - and they paid me for my time. Like anything I’m paid for, I don’t promise anything other than to show up. If Sea World is lame, they’ll regret inviting me, because I’ll let you know! haha
Anyway, they said yes, I said yes, so Shamu? Get ready!
Oh Jackles. Not this whole pesky "full disclosure" thing rearing its ugly head again. Sucks when readers expect you to be honest and transparent about why you're constantly blogging/Tweeting about various products and services, no?
When are you also going to come clean about your deal with Lunch.com?
