Due to the high volume of requests that I get, I want to clarify my guest blogging policy:

  1. Hello Leslie,

    I am the Digital Outreach Director at My ID Square (, a new medical ID jewelry company that provides an innovative service to people with medical conditions and allergies. We admire your gettingclosertomyself blog very much and would appreciate if you would be willing to do a review. We have been reviewed at and we are getting fantastic feedback from parents, teens and seniors. Would you be interested in reviewing products on your blog?

    My ID Square's Medical IDs go beyond any comparable product on the market. In the event of an emergency, first responders can scan the colorful QR code or follow the unique URL on the back of the jewelry which link to an online medical profile maintained by users. The medical profile includes the person’s name, photo, date of birth, chronic conditions and allergies, medications, emergency contacts, pharmacies, preferred hospitals, and much more--all in an easy to read format. Additionally, emergency contacts are texted and emailed when a scan a occurs, giving loved ones peace of mind knowing that they will be alerted in the event of an emergency.

    We believe that your readers, who are concerned about living with chronic illness would greatly benefit from our IDs, which we call SquIDs (for Square IDs). Please do check out My ID Square’s website, and I would be happy to send you a sample of one of our products for review.

    If you would like a copy of our recent Press Release or FACT sheet, please let me know.

    Aaron Glickman
    Director of Digital Outreach (or whatever title you want)
