Two years ago, this month, I was chosen as a runner-up in the very first Purina Cat Chow Correspondent contest. I was one of hundreds of bloggers who applied for a chance to have a one year, $50,000 salary, postion with so much for the person to do to promote Purina, and attend, and write about, Cat related issues, and events, that my cat, Nikita, claimed that it “blew my furry little mind (Not! Hee, hee!)”.
Would you jump at a similar chance if offered to you, even if there was no salary involved?
I did, in 2008, when I was approached to become a member of the Pacific Symphony Citizen Press Corp, in Costa Mesa, Ca.
