You know, I rarely vent about things but I saw a tweet that irritated me just a bit and I just can’t let it go.
Can anyone point me to a PR rep for Kodak, Sony, Olympus, Samsung, Fuji or Polaroid cameras?
May as well add Nikon, Panasonic and Canon too. Anyone who’ll give you a free one right?
It’s things like this that make bloggers look bad. This is the perfect example of why we catch so much flack . You’ve got these bloggers going around asking, asking, asking no matter what brand it is all because they want a freebie. It’s okay to love different brands but to ask for contacts for all of them just to get something, is not okay.
IN MY OPINION
If you want to be respected as a blogger, you have got to learn to pick and choose your relationships wisely. I left a comment on MomSpark’s blog that reflects how I feel about this very subject.
“I do think building relationships, networking, staying authentic & genuine are key. So many bloggers today are saying yes to everything. They need to learn to say yes to the things they absolutely believe in. Give yourself high standards. Example: If you’re gonna praise how much you love Tide today, don’t do campaigns to pimp up Wisk tomorrow and Purex the next week.“
Maybe I took the tweet wrong and if I did, I apologize from the bottom of my heart.
