One Response to About

  1. Greetings!

    I am a 3rd year BS Business Administration student and am currently working as an Ovi specialist in Nokia and as part of the marketing program, I am tasked to look for bloggers or website owners with active rss feeds whom Nokia can partner with to promote Ovi services.

    What I’ll do is to create an application for the website owner. And this is for free! 🙂 Once the app is created, it will be available in the Nokia Ovi store where people can download the app and receive updates and feeds from the website in their mobile phones. By doing this, we are promoting both the Ovi brand and the website.

    Would you like to create an app for 100 Pound Foodie?

    Please contact me through e-mail or through phone if you are interested. If you happen to manage other blogs, we can also create an app for them.

    I’ll wait for your response.

    Thank you!


    Maria Alyssa A. Pucyutan
    Nokia Ovi Specialist
