Review: “The 10-Minute Total Body Breakthrough” by Sean Foy

PastaQueen reads a book. And finishes it! And tells you about it!

My timing is off

Hello, dear readers. I wanted to apologize for the fact that I’m posting two reviews less than a week apart from each other. The Fage review has been in the works for weeks, and I forgot it was finally going live this week, otherwise I would have posted the Home Trends review sooner or later. I have a bazillion things going through my head these days (including the ever-present headache) and I futzed up the timing on this. I don’t want the blog to turn into a big advertorial, so rest assured I will hold off on any more reviews for several weeks. Please bear with me!

Review: Home Trends products & giveaway

PastaQueen reviews items from the Home Trends store which promise to save her veggies from going bad and save her money from being stolen, all while wearing looser jeans.

Reviews: An experiment and ground rules

Over the years I’ve started to get more and more press releases that include an offer to review INSERT YOUR STUPID PRODUCT HERE. Most of these get tossed in my trash bin. Sometimes I giggle or roll my eyes before I delete them, like I did all three (yes three!) times they sent me the press release for the arm flab girdle. At first it was fun to get these emails because if I was getting PR spam it meant someone was reading my blog, even if it was only a computer program harvesting email addresses on web pages that use the word “lard.” But I got over that thrill really quickly and now they’re mostly annoying. (Yeah, I know, poor, poor, me.)

Sometimes though, I get sent an offer to review a product that genuinely intrigues me. It could be for a product I’ve heard about or something I think my readers might enjoy. This has always caused an ethical pickle for me because I don’t want my blog to become one long infomercial, but [...]

Half-Assed blog book tour

I’m going on tour – a blog tour. For the next three weeks, I’ll be making stops every week day at different locations in the blogosphere to talk about my book. There will be reviews, interviews, guest posts and perhaps even podcasts. It would be fun to tour the country on a book tour, but also rather expensive and I don’t have the vacation time. A blog tour is better because I save a lot on gas money. And I don’t have to find someone to feed my cat.

We’re kicking it off today with the woman who helped get this whole book thing rolling, Kalyn Denny of Kalyn’s Kitchen. Here is a schedule of the rest of my stops, which I will update with direct links to the posts as they go live. It should be lots of fun, so I hope everyone will check it out!

Monday, May 5: Kalyn’s Kitchen

Tuesday, May 6: CalorieLab (interview)

Wednesday, May 7: Life of L

Thursday, May 8: Big Fat Deal

Friday, May 9: Cranky Fitness

Monday, May 12: DietGirl

Man looking into telescope

Jennette Fulda tells stories to the Internet about her life as a smartass, writer, weight-loss inspiration, chronic headache sufferer, and overall nice person (who is silently judging you). She does this at JenFul now, but you can still have fun perusing her past here.
