Two years ago I started a special promotion on this blog. It was a “let’s do it just to see if it works” kind of promotion between this blog and a Mac software producer called Mariner. Basically, each month I was releasing a special promo code, available only here, which will give to its happy owner a special discount all over the Mariner eStore.
Now, guys, just in case you missed it: that was two years ago. I almost can’t believe this was actually so long. Looks like yesterday I was checking the first results of the promotion, only to remain baffled in front of numbers. People really used those promo codes. And the sales went stronger and stronger.
If someone looks at the publishing date of this article, he’ll realizeÂ I wrote this post on December 6th. Usually, the promo code was given each month, on the first. Well, there’s a reason for that. This month will have a special promotion. I mean, not special, but special-special. It took a little bit of work and negotiation, but I’m happy I learned how to twist people arms before, in my first 10 years of doing business. Joking, of course, I didn’t have to twist anybody’s arm, but I did have to negotiate a litte. 🙂
Getting back to our special-special promotion, let’a just say I hate to leave people waiting, so I’ll say it in one shout, right now: only during December, you’ll get a 30% discount off of any Mariner product, no strings attached. That’s a third of the regular price, fellows. For ANY Mariner app, and that includes long time winners like MacJournal, StoryMill or MacGourmet deLuxe.
All you have to do is to enter this promo code in the designated area at the Mariner eStore:
Keep it to yourself and buy everythig, or spread the word as far as you can. You will make some Mac users happy. So, go ahead, browse the eStore and see what’s in it for you. Just remember the promo code which gives you, exactly, 30% discount off of any Mariner software:
Running For My Life - from zero to ultramarathoner
The spooky thing about depression is that it sneaks in. There aren’t really trumpets and loud voices announcing: “Hail, hail, this is depression entering the room, all rise!” Nope. It’s slow, silent, creepy. It doesn’t even look like depression. It starts with small isolation thoughts like: “Maybe I shouldn’t get out today, I just don’t feel like going out”. And then it does the same next day. And then the day after that and so on. And then it starts to whisper louder and louder in your ears: “Why would you go outside, you loser? Didn’t have enough yet? Want more people to make fun of how much of a big, fat loser you are?”
And then you start to breath in guilt and shame, instead of air. Every breathe you take is putting more dark thoughts into your body.
Until you get stuck. You can’t move anymore. At all.
