Hi lovely reader,
I say things how they are and hi June!
I hope you will be sunny such as May was.
At the moment i’m 20 weeks pregnant and
she is getting more active than before.
I can feel her more and more..
that’s such a special feeling.
Next week we will have the ‘20 weeks ultra sound‘.
For now i just wanted to share some blogger frustrations..
I’ve seen some messages at several Facebook groups about this,
but it didn’t affected me before.
Till now, because it is getting really annoying.
What i mean?
The tons of emails of company’s/brands wo are willing to work with me,
but don’t want to ‘sponsor’ a product or budget in exchange with the same value as my (blog)post.
I’ve got several mails with questions if i want to review,
post or share a product or link in return for a product.
I know when i started blogging,
i was really happy when i received a product for free.
Now i’m a couple years further,
it’s not fair and totally not comparable for the work a blogger needs to do.
The last mail i received was yesterday if i wanted to review
a product in exchange for a product worth a couple of euro’s!
I feel almost offended when i receive a mail like this.
Of course i’m thankful for the gifts and stuff,
but hey it’s a marketing world and nothing is for free
Of course i also have a lot of lovely collabs with brands who
are familiar with the value of the bloggerworld,
there is one coming up very soon!
And i haven’t mentioned my Insta dm messages yet.
Oh my the most craziest proposals i receive from brands.
Like, aah you can advertise for me and in exchange we will tag you.
If it’s a page with a big reach and engagement.. ok
but otherwise it’s just a joke.
Yes, i know i am getting more business..
but i’ve seen and heard it’s really required
to be professional and stand up for yourself!
I say things how they are.
