Did you know that you can become an All You Reality Checker? Yeah – pretty cool to be able to give real input to a magazine that appears to be doing a great job of featuring real people inside (not just celebrities and models). You can thank Northern Cheapskate for me, she’s my informant for this opportunity. Basically, you have the opportunity to take surveys and provide input for stories they are working on for the magazine. They also like to give out gift cards. For example, they were awarding a $10 grocery gift card to every 20th Reality Checker who completed a survey about their All You Yes You Can sampling event last weekend. I know that those of you who attended would have loved to provide some feedback on that event (I heard from many disappointed readers, especially for the stores who were supposed to host the event but failed to do so).
