Thank You From the Bloggom of Our Hearts; Holiday Souvenirs

By Databazaar Blog

Databazaar Deals: Season's Greetings, Housekeeping, Reflections on 2007, and a 5% Discount

Dbz121907dd

Happy Holidays and best wishes for a healthy and successful 2008!

Over the past two weeks, we took a brief (and hopefully well-deserved) break from the daily grind of blogging, but now we're back. And we have big plans for 2008. But first a few housekeeping notes.

Over the next two weeks, we're going to cover a lot of new printers as we have quite a backlog. We're also going to make sure that every Printer News article in 2007 has functioning links to the corresponding supplies (we often cover these printers before their supplies become widely available). Once we complete this housekeeping, we'll march full speed ahead into 2008.

Reflections on Our First Year and a Very Big Thank You

In January 2007 we launched Databazaar Blog with high hopes but realistic expectations. It takes a while for a publication to take root and build an audience. The ones that succeed that is. Most don't. Because we're an online store and not a media company, you could say the odds were against us.

Fortunately, we beat the odds. We attribute our success this year to five factors:

First, not being a media company helped more than it hurt because we could focus on the content and not worry about selling ads. We're the sole sponsor of the blog.

Second, the content to advertising ratio in Databazaar Blog exceeds that of commercial publications. For example, of the five posts we typically publish every week, four contain content and only one contains advertising (plus we try our best to write entertaining ad copy).

Third, we didn't impose any restrictions on our editorial team. We let them cover the world of printers as they saw fit.

Fourth, we combined traditional publishing with blogging. Most traditional publications have a rigid format with the same columns and features in every issue. By contrast, most blogs have no structure. We have regular features (PrinTips, Printer News, Review Roundup, DoubleSided) and special features (Printer Pundits), but can also cover any topic that comes our way.

Fifth, you! Thank you for reading Databazaar Blog, posting comments, bookmarking it, subscribing via email or RSS feed, voting for it on Digg and StumbleUpon, etc. We're truly appreciative and grateful for your support.

Holiday Souvenirs

One of the best uses of a printer occurs during the holidays when you get together with your family. Snap some digital photos, and then print copies of the best ones on the spot for everyone to take home.

To make sure you don't run out of supplies, order some by December 26th from Databazaar and receive a 5% discount if your order reaches $50 or more. Use coupon code XMSDBZR3. No matter what the size of your order, shipping is free.

Instead, mosey on down to your PC (oh wait, you're already there—duh), and shop at Databazaar where you'll save 5% when you spend $50 or more. Use coupon code HRAC2007 when you checkout. This offer expires on Wednesday, November 21, 2007.

There's A New Deal In The Air At Databazaar

By Databazaar Blog

Databazaar Deals: Buy Original HP Products, Get Triple AA Advantage Miles

Dddbz967hpfly

Back in the 1980s, American Airlines ran an ad campaign with the slogan "Something special in the air." Too bad American Airlines no longer uses that slogan because we have something special for you.

We've partnered with HP to help you earn frequent flyer miles from American Airlines.

Simply purchase original HP products from Databazaar and you'll earn Triple AA Advantage Miles. No coupon code needed. But just like your flight, this deal won't last forever, so buy your HP supplies from Databazaar and pile on some miles.

As always, we offer truly free shipping on all orders.

They say curiosity killed the cat, but it also helped the Wright Brothers invent the airplane. So experience that special "something" from American Airlines and bring us back one of those T-Shirts that says something like: "A reader of my blog went to Rome and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt."
