Awesomeness Reminders

With AwesomenessReminders, a real person will call you every day to tell you how much you rock. If you're not around, we will leave you a voicemail.

For the pointer I thank Paul Sas, who tells me they charge $10 a month.

Here is one of the owner's other sites, www.compassionpit.com: "Chat with an anonymous stranger who won't judge you."  To my mind, that claim lowers the credibility of the awesomeness reminders quite a bit.

I think someone’s hinting at what he’d like as a birthday present.

If you need to pay ‘a real person’ $10 per month to tell you that you’re awesome… you are not awesome.

As if you are really awesome – what do you do?

From AwesomenessReminders:
Our founder, Zack Burt, has studied psychology in-depth at the university level

Hmmm, reminds me of Dr. Science:

He knows more than you do! He is not a real doctor, but he has a master’s degree…in science!

Compassionpit connects people to other people who agree to chat, not with a real professional like Dr. Science, err, Zach Burt:

The easy thing about blogging is that you can just throw random crap up and not do any research….

Hi tyler,

Thanks for posting about http://www.AwesomenessReminders.com, i appreciate it.
fun fact: most of the subscriptions purchased so far are gifts.

As far as the Dr Science comment – hahaha, that’s great. :)

This reminds me of the product “Cheers To You”

@agnostic,

Your vapid, incoherent comments and goofy nutritional theories make you the laughingstock of MR! You’re welcome.

@everyone else,

You’re good enough, you’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like you! Ten bucks please.

The British equivalent would be ArseholenessReminders.

I’m just going to assume that AwesomenessReminders and CompassionPit are to completely separate entities that target two separate markets.

And thanks for commenting, Zack. You rock!

laughed at by aspie virgins, oh the pain of it all, lol.

as we’ve seen, the praise or castigation has to come from someone who matters, like your friends or your boss.

Gosh darn it, agnostic, there goes my business plan…
