My name is Jeff Hamilton and I work for an amazing start-up that is a new spin on the old advice column. Now you can get positive advice through crowdsourcing and http://askyuru.com/is the place to find it. Yuru will thrive as the best place to go for meaningful advice, because users are incentivized through in-platform rewards to be helpful and positive. Yuru maintains a zero tolerance policy for bullying or otherwise hateful, damaging behavior or commentary.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT AND RELEVANT:
• ANONYMITY: Ask or answer any question openly or anonymously.
• QUICK-POLLING: Should I? This or That? Have you Ever? and Come Clean
Our four fun, signature categories provide extremely easy, fast interaction
• FILTERS: Users always control whose advice they see – from just female or male respondents, friends or strangers, and even from a specific age range or location.
• REACH: Get advice
Hi there! I make metal stamped jewelry. I have a lot of fun pieces, but my specialty is custom orders. I can put any word, date, place, name, really anything on a keychain, necklace, bracelet, or even magnet. I’m trying to get my name out there and I heard a good way to go is to get blogs to review my product or to offer to supply the jewelry for you if you do a giveaway in return for exposure! I know your followers really trust your opinion and it would be great to team up with you to share some of my designs. I have attached some pictures on here, to see more feel free to visit http://www.facebook.com/outcastjewelry or instagram @outcastjewelry if you have any questions let me know!
Thank you so much!
Hi, I hope you dont mind me getting in touch. I’m writing a book on the effects of war on different returning soldiers and how they, and their families cope.
I am currently hosting an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the book, with all proceeds from the sale of the book going to support injured soldiers.
I was wondering if you would be interested in maybe sharing my page, or any other way you might be able to help out? I’m also looking for the people who will take part in the book.
Again I hope you don’t mind me saying hi, I realize this is a very awkward subject and I know from personal experience how devastating it can be to families.
Please let me know if you feel you can help, the more exposure the book gets then the more money I hope it will generate for a great cause.
P.s A link to the campaign if your interested –

I just wanted you to know I just read your “Pomp and Unique Circumstances” article in our newspaper and it made me cry. I head up a military outreach for our church and besides packages, we send personal letters, articles of interest and humor. I often include your column. Please tell your family that we appreciate your sacrifices, and it helps us to hear about your everyday situations which are affected by being in the military. We, in civilian life, need to be made aware. Thank you, Becky Hauser
Wow, thanks for the great feedback Becky! I am so flattered and honored that you are including my column in care packages for military outreach – that warms my heart! Thank you for what you do for the military! Curious: in which newspaper did you read my column?
I’d like to talk to you about a Military/Veteran discount available for your readers. My partner and I, both Marine Corps Veterans, create personalized heirloom quality mementos at http://www.ProudlyIServed.com

Hi Lisa, Helen Kisner here, from Stuttgart days gone by.
I hope you are doing well. I enjoyed reading your Mothers Day blog posting, and just wanted to reconnect and say Hi.
Hello Helen of morning dog walks gone by! Dinghy is still chasing rabbits here in RI. Where are you now? So glad to reconnect!
I have recently started a new blog called theguiltymommy.com. The goal of my site is to provide a comfortable judgement free place for all women to discuss and share some of their own mommy guilt struggles. I realize that every mother has guilt and it is certainly influenced by their situation. As I do not have personal experience with every situation, for example raising a family while in the military or married to a military husband, I am trying to do a series of guest posts. Would you or anyone on this site be interested in either guest blogging or giving me a couple tidbits on what causes you the most mommy guilt and/or what you would like to see in an article? I want all women to realize they are not alone with mommy guilt and others with similar situations have some of the same struggles. Thanks and I love the honesty of your site.
As you know, I always enjoy your blog, so I’ve nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. Yes, I know it’s a bit strange to have this coming from a guy, but in the world of blogging, you know how it goes.
Here’s a link: http://holdingtogetherthejello.com/2014/03/10/sisterhood-award-and-yes-i-know-im-a-man/
I hope your week is off to a good start.

Lisa – I’m going to MY first conference this week, and really enjoyed your insights! Thanks!
My name is Darren Moore and I am currently casting for the series premier of a new show that is to air on a major cable network. We are looking for a service member coming home from overseas and their family is trying to plan a welcome home party but they are clueless when it comes to party planning.
We have a team of event specialists and culinary experts who are going to organize an amazing party for the lucky recipient, we just need to find the perfect one!
Engagement dinners, intimate weddings and other significant dinner type events can also be included on this list. Whoever we choose has to live in the Southern California area. I have included a flyer with all the information.
This is a great opportunity for someone to have a really special night planned for them so please help spread the word!
Thank you for your time,
