Rent-A-Belly?

I'm excited as all get out (I don't know what all get out is but I'm still that much excited) to attend BlogHer this year in San Francisco. I'm hoping for a completely sponsored trip meaning I don't have to pay a thing for my flight, hotel, and conference fees. So far I have about a third of it covered. Yesterday I joked with Jory & Sue from BlogHer that I could rent my belly. Paint it with a logo? Wear a shirt advertising across my huge expanse? Rub-on tattoo?

Target would be fitting, but do they- the place most of us call our second home or Calgon-esque escape- really need to market themselves to a bunch of women bloggers? Here's photographic examples of the belly. By July it will be two months larger than it is now. So we've got a lot of space to work with here. Ideas, anyone?

  3. I am sitting here next to my bottle of Green Works, a remider that I need to clean, and that might work for you. A pretty flower on your belly. Making the world a cleaner place for a new generation. It could totally work! :) Now to sell it to the masses!

  4. I'd do it. If I didn't have massive amounts of stretch marks on my stomach when pregnant, that is. ;)

  5. Ha! Love that idea and the Target bullseye thing would make for a priceless picture...

    Some other ideas:
    Blue Moon (although that's a beer so maybe it sends the wrong message)
    Maybe there's a pumpkin patch in your area that could use an ad (oh yeah, you'll be delivered by the fall)
    Nevermind. I'm fresh out of ideas. :)

  6. Ooooh, San Francisco! I wonder if you'll like it. I enjoyed touring The Warf and then Sonoma/Napa. Just make sure to see Golden Gate and possibly a nature walk through a sequoia tree forest. And don't get me started on the choice of restaurants - YUMMO!

    Ok, enough of that, you know where to find me for travel ideas!

  8. I think that sounds like a fantastic idea!

    I just joined Twitter and I'm following you...my name on there is "JenKSwan"-- just so you'll know it's me!

  9. I love it! Even better than a logo painted belly, maybe fabulous maternity clothes that every one would have to ask you about. Babystyle? Are you listening?

    This is my first visit - I linked from my cereal study. Thanks so much for giving me your stats.

    I love your blog. I also love that you are on your way to four kids. We're thinking maybe a fourth and some of my "two is enough" friends think I'm crazy.

  10. What a great idea! I'd totally pimp out my baby grill! :-)

  11. I think Target *does* need to market to moms. Yes, a lot of moms shop there, but they could do so much more. For example, their return policy on registry items is nothing short of pathetic and it would be fantastic if they offered a nursing lounge since so many moms shop there. I love Target, but I'd like to see them take their customer service and their policies to the next level...

    P.S. I can't wait to meet you at BlogHer!

  12. I think it's a brilliant idea. My husband always said I could bring in extra cash by having an advertisement on my stroller. :)

  13. I think it's great that you will get to go - and even better if you could go free of charge! How awesome would that be?!

  14. I am so excited!! Wish I had some ideas for you!

  15. Good luck! I think it would be hilarious if they paid to advertise on your belly. Not so far fetched, really.

  19. I've heard of people renting out their body for ads and they get paid for it.
    I say go for it Steph.
    Free trip, how can you pass that up.

  21. I'm sure it'll all come through for you. But I think a big ol UBR would love lovely on that belly. Although I could only afford to get you to the Il. border.
