BLOGGING WITH PASSION


Like it or not Blogger is the new outreach concept for advertiser.
There are many of them just a bunch of freebies grabber which I could say they are the one who tarnish the blogger sphere. Many of them really take blogging seriously and totally into it out of passion to writing and discovering new things.


Real blogger does not write the untrue story because the blogger are suppose to be the real consumer testimonial. The sweetening stories on product only come if it really works. 

The truth is many bloggers gives a fake review just to please the advertiser or PR firm to gain more future invites and  sponsorship. Shame on them.

I took blogging as my passion since last year and my inbox are pouring with opportunities to cover the latest and the greatest things. These opportunities comes equally with trash inquiries too.


1. "YOU WEREN'T INVITED, BUT PLEASE PUBLISH HOW GREAT OUR EVENT WAS."

How do I comment this? 
Well...if you think blogger is not that important to even included in your guest list, why bother to include them in your publisher list?

Shame on you!

2. "WE INTERESTED TO INCLUDE YOUR TESTIMONIAL  AND PHOTO 'BEFORE' AND 'AFTER' IN OUR MARKETING AND PROMOTION PLAN, IN RETURN YOUR PHOTO WILL BE PUBLISHED TO ALL OUR NEWSPAPER AD AND YOU GET SOME FREE PUBLICITY"

I am not sure about others, but to me this is not a right way to do promotion. You can approach all those dying for 'free publicity' bloggers and save your talent fees.

3. "PLEASE FIND ATTACHED WRITE UP AND PUBLISH ON YOUR BLOG"

Duh! what do I owe you to publish your write up? I will not publish something that not even suit to my writing style. To me if someone ask me to publish the finish article without even taking my ideas to suit my writing style....BIG NO WAY!

Blogger are not a press-release publishers!

4. "WE GIVE YOU FREE PRODUCTS PLEASE TRY OUT AND GIVE A GOOD TESTIMONIAL"

The request comes with all sort of good words on product which is a must to include in the writing even the product does not even works as what they claimed.

mmmmm...how to comment this?

You want me lie for your sake? Who are you?

5. DON'T GIVE BLOGGER THAT CHEAP BLOGGER LOOK

Sometimes when I was invited to an event, I notice some PR staff or even the advertiser will give some of the blogger ...."cheapskate look!"

So for all PR firm or even Advertiser, Bloggers is not a bunch of ' CHEAP FREE SERVICE' just because of this is our passion. Passion is not about a FREE SERVICE! We put our effort and time for this too. Don't treat blogger like third rate publisher! 

No doubt! many bloggers who goes around attending event and do the shout out constantly on 'this and that' which make them feels like a 'celebrity' kind of feeling. Normally , they are  housewife or even somebody who are so free and nothing to do at home. They may look like a bunch of 'cheap stuff grabber sometimes' but to me they are important people since you even acknowledge them by include them in your promotional activities. Appreciate them. They came to your event with full of efforts without even getting any appearance fees! If your event high class for these bloggers then don't bother to invite them. You pay peanut you get monkey! You pay nothing....imagine what kind of craps make the appearance to your event.

Nowadays , many bloggers are working people and professional who did it as passion and attending event to know more people and experience new things. This is totally a different class of bloggers.

Attention Advertiser and PR firm, there are many bloggers out there who goes around to spoil the industry but many take this blogging passion to a different level too. So...we are not all the same! Its your choice on which type of blogger you are looking for and treat them with respect rather than craps! You won't choose them if they are not even important to you!

I'm a long way off their radar. I was approached only once for no.3 which I innocently re-wrote into my own and interviewed some people too. Haiyoo.. -_-
