  1. Hi,

    I was wondering if you had any information, reviews, or firsthand knowledge of Portstone flooring? Thanks!

  2. Hello, I commented on Beryl’s post on Facebook with a link to your blog. I mentioned that I had taken a lot of photos of floors in Vegas a couple of years ago. Beryl asked me send those to you. Unfortunately I am still looking for them as I have many photo CDs but they are not organized. I found 3 images of floors from my trip to Jerusalem. I’d be happy to send those to you if you are interested and tell me how.
    Best, Madina Aryeh.

  3. I’m interested in making a partnership with this website; I run a popular cork flooring consumer resource website. Who would I need to contact?

  4. I work for Cardinal Web Solutions, an SEO company in Atlanta, and I have a client who is also in the flooring industry and is interested in sharing some of her insights and experiences. My client is the owner of Glover’s Flooring. She does not have a blog, but would be interested in contributing as a guest author from time to time on yours. This would help you increase variety and content on your blog with no effort on your part, and would allow my client to share some of her knowledge of the industry.

    Please send me an e-mail if you would be interested in having our client as a guest on your blog

  5. Hello,

    The name is Laura Zanskey, I’m a professional writer and webmaster; a pleasure to e-meet you! I’ve been reading your blog lately at the office and I’m loving it so far, plus I was quite impressed with the design of your site; it’s so nicely customized that it just stands out.

    I’m contacting you because I have a few ideas for an article that, in my opinion, would be very fitting for your readers.

    The format of the article would be as follows:

    Length: >= 400-600 words.

    Delivery: Formatted HTML file with pictures and relevant supplementary resources, ready for publishing.

    Copyrights: 100% original and not published anywhere else; the article will be for the exclusive use of your blog.

    Would it be fine if the article body contained one, entirely relevant link to my website, which would add even more value to the article?

    I really love to write, so I’m absolutely ready to prepare the article for you and send it for your approval within the next few days; I’m sure you will like it and we’ll get it to work, but should you decide not to publish I will just stash it in my private collection for later use – no harm done!

    Let me know if this is something you would be interested in.

    All the best,

  6. I’m also interested in finding out about opportunities for guest articles on your site. Please contact me if you’re actively considering new contributors to the website; thanks.

  7. Hi FTFU,
    I work for Karndean, a global supplier of LVT products. We’d very much like the opportunity of guest blogging on your site by provinding opinion and relevant comment to your categories in which we specialise.

    Please get in touch.
    Regards, Philip

  8. I just had padding and a rug installed in my living room stairs and landing upstairs in a condo. Ever since the rug and padding were installed I am having breathing problems and heart palpatations. I hear they used rebond padding, which I found out has butylated hydroxy toluene (Bht) in it.
    I read that this chemical is not harmful but I am feeling terrible and cannot sleep. HELP.

  9. Hello Shannon,

    This is an excellent blog you have here. I would love the opportunity to write an original 500 word article on the increasingly popular, but often overlooked home gym flooring topic. There are a number of things to consider when choosing flooring for this application and I would like to make a useful guide for your readers.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  10. Hi,

    This is Kevin, I went through your fromthefloorsup.com, while surfing in Google, am very much impressed with your site’s unique information.

    I work as a content manager in many kitchen furnishings communities and love the opportunity to guest post for your readers. I would like to give you a unique article on any kitchen furnishings related theme. No duplication or copying of the article is done. I assure you that the article will be published only on your site.

    The best part is I won’t be charging you a penny, but in return all I need is just one link within the article.

    Looking forward for a positive reply.

    Yours truly,

    Kevin Maddox
