I received an email from a potential sponsor who asked me to fill out their application. It is pretty standard for a potential sponsor to ask for my blog statistics. They want to know how many people view my blog on average and how many page views per day. As I got to the end of this particular form, it asked for my Klout score.

Klout.com is a site that measures the online social influence of an individual. They determine your score when you connect your social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, among others.
As your Klout score increases you may also be eligible for Klout Perks. I didn’t pay that much attention to it until one day I received an email letting me know that I was being offered a Perk. I followed the link and was thrilled to accept a $15 gift card to try an item from Chili’s Lighter Choices menu! Well…yeah!
So the other day I finally had the opportunity to go. I had a lovely time going by myself! Is that strange? It’s the perfect time to people watch and eaves drop! I chose the new Grilled Chicken Salad:
So how about you? Got Klout?
