Some news from Beth (toaster)

I am posting this on Beth's behalf, as I've done for a few others that have been in a somewhat similar situation:

Quote:
I have some exciting news to share! I have been asked to be the "official" yoga media reviewer for iHanuman.com, a new online community of yoga teachers founded by Tilak Pyle, Sara Pope, and Peter Agelasto. The site is dedicated both to trying to make a difference in the world and to helping the community members to promote their teachings, including through yoga media. iHanuman's Digital Download Store features both free and purchasable yoga media (some of which are already commercially available, such as Tilak's Yoga: Altar of the Heart), with part of all proceeds donated to charity. For the time being, my reviews will simply be featured first on each product page, but eventually, they will be placed under an "editorial reviews" heading, and I will be given my own profile page as well.

I am so honored to have been chosen for this (unpaid) position! Tilak, my
contact person at iHanuman, told me that he, Sara, and Peter spent a lot of time reading through my Amazon.com reviews (I’m a Top 100 Reviewer there, for those of you who haven’t noticed this in my sig line), and they chose me because they were “impressed” with my ability to write reviews that are “descriptive, balanced and thorough.” The iHanuman store went live today, so you can read some of my reviews that are already posted to see if you agree.

Just so you know, I’ve discussed my new role at iHanuman with WWWendy, and we’ve agreed that in addition to the disclosure information in my profile, I'll post a disclaimer at the start of any reviews for iHanuman products that I write for VF as well. I think that the yoga lovers here will really like the new iHanuman site, and I hope that VFers will continue to enjoy reading my reviews both here and there in the future.

Thanks Jeannine and Ooty! It's nice to know that they thought so much of me, and it has been fun corresponding with Tilak.

Beth is an awesome reviewer. I always looked for Beth's reviews when buying videos at Amazon. Recently we've had the opportunity to chat about the FitnessFix DVDs and we even became Amazon.com friends. Tilak and company couldn't have picked a better person for this job. And Beth, I wish you much luck and success with it! I'm glad that you'll be able to post reviews for the iHanuman products here, too. I look forward to them.
