Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised when I blog about a company and then get a response from that company. My blogs only get a few thousand visitors per month, they don’t get anywhere near the traffic of the major blogs but they somehow get the attention of these companies. I suppose they have someone doing blog searches for the company name.
At my other blog Bank Bonuses I wrote about the problems I had with Revolution Money Exchange. I signed up for the service but I wasn’t able to complete the registration because I have a fraud alert on my credit report. They were supposed to send me an email telling me how to complete my registration but apparently it went to my spam folder. My emails to customer service went unanswered and calls to customer service were met with the reply to just wait for the email. After blogging about my experience though I received an email from Revolution Money Exchange explaining there had been some problems with their contact form and apologizing for my problems. They approved my account so I could complete my registration. This improved my opinion of them but made me wonder what would have happened if I didn’t have a blog. I might never have been able to open an account. Since this company is an alternative to PayPal,which I’m not a big fan of, I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. If you want to give them a try I’ve added a sign up button in my sidebar.

Just another bonus that blogging leads to, isn’t it? Excellent. It’s nice when your writing efforts can offer some solid insurance that 1) they are being read, and 2) the companies you are writing about actually care what you are saying!
