FAQs

Ekaterina Botziou FAQBelow I have tried to answer every question I have ever been asked since launching my blog (I have even included the strange ones) but if you have a query that has not been answered please do not hesitate to contact me.

How can I contact you?

For any queries or if you just want to say hello you can either¬†contact me here or email me directly at ekaterinabotziou@hotmail.com ūüôā

How can I work with you?

Can I advertise my product/company on your blog?

Absolutely. I can accommodate banners and advertisements so please do get in touch. 

Why/when did you start your blog?

I started my blog in 2012 just after I got married. Months spent planning (or rather, being subjected to other people’s plans) for my big fat Greek wedding, had left me with more than a few frustrating yet hilarious tales and I just had to get them off my chest. I did a bit of research, signed up with WordPress, and then blindly started building the world that I would retreat to in moments of literary madness. It took a while to get the hang of things, but soon there was no stopping me! What started out as a hobby has now become a platform for the expression of my literary, philosophical and social goals as well as a portal through which Greeks and non-Greeks can find a whole new plate-smashing world!

Do you get sent products/samples to advertise?

From time to time yes, if so I will always include a disclaimer at the bottom of the post.

If I send you product samples will you write a blog post/review on them? 

I am more than happy to discuss products on my blog that fit in with my general theme. However I may not be able to commit to a particular time frame and will only give my absolute honest opinion to my readers about any product. 

Where can I buy your books from?

All of my books are available in all the popular Kindle, electronic and paperback formats from publishers world-wide. You can see my Amazon bookstore for the UK and US here. My books are also available through Barnes and Noble and Createspace. Alternatively if you would like to contact me I can send you a signed copy of any book for the usual retail price plus postage.
