The recent ‘Angels & Demons’ movie screening on the 12th of May (two days before the premiere!) was a blast! With a full hall of bloggers & friends, and plenty of donuts to go around, it was an enjoyable night with a great movie and great company. Some of you even said you’ll see it again! Thanks to Columbia Tristar for making this happen, and also congratulations to the prize winners!
We recently had a special trip to Genting for a small group of bloggers during the Labour Day weekend, and it was awesome!
Hi, just a quick note that we will be running lots of new campaigns that target blogs with Youth, as well as Technology related content very soon. So if you’re in your teens, or have a blog that discusses technology, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop a comment on this post.
Advertlets Select campaigns are those that run only on certain blogs that fit the criteria, and not across the network. As they are more targeted, the bloggers that get the campaigns will be paid more than usual due to their niche. We’ve run several campaigns before that only target Female bloggers, or some that only run on Malay language or Chinese Language blogs, for example.. And of course, Advertlets Titan bloggers will be prioritized for inclusion.
FYI: This is also a good time to install some of the larger ad formats, eg 336×280 or 728×90. Let your blogger friends know too if you think they can benefit from this Happy blogging, and have a great weekend!
