  1. Salut, sunt un reprezentant de publicitate de la firma de curatenie. Imi poti lasa te rog cateva informatii prin care sa te contactez? Ma intereseaza sa-mi spui daca scrii si subiecte de promovare referitoare la teme precum casa, amenajari spatii, curatenie. Imi place felul tau de scriere si sunt interesat de o colaborare. Multumesc mult.
