So, this is directed to bloggers from me as a blog manager, not a fellow blogger. I can’t speak for all blog managers, but I know more than one that feels the same way I do. Time to put things in a little perspective. Here’s the deal based on my limited experience and I’d love to hear from other blog managers on this, as well. Feel free to disagree, but please keep it polite-ish. *laughs*
Bloggers, please don’t argue with your blog manager. It’s fine to ask questions, but when you challenge your blog managers and insult them? Well, guess what? We are human, too. We are not perfect and we make mistakes. Guess what else we do? We talk to each other. If you are a blogger and constantly arguing with your blog manager? You are going to get a reputation for being difficult and as word spreads, you’re not likely to get as many gigs. I’m not saying kiss our butts, that’s ridiculous. However, as a blogger you must be receptive to feedback, both positive and negative. Oh, and if you go running your mouth about the blog manager to the designer, they usually tell us.
Bloggers, please don’t hunt down the blog manager after your application has been rejected to argue about why you should be on the team. There was a reason you were not chosen, its fine if you want to know how to improve, but please stop begging for a spot. It’s not going to work and blog managers talk to each other about that stuff, too.
Bloggers, please refer to the brand you’re speaking about when reaching out to a blogger manager, because some of us work for more than one brand. So, especially if you’re dropping notecards on us, pretty please say which brand you’re talking about.
Lastly, its important that bloggers understand that when a blogger manager gives you feedback or rejects a post, its because we’re doing our jobs. We care about the brand we represent. We are human and make mistakes, just like you and most of us are bloggers, too. Just so you know I’m fully aware that I’m not perfect, I will tell you that I’ve had posts rejected by both CandyDoll and Cynful. They were fully within their rights to reject my posts for whatever reason they wanted, but I knew they were right about those photos. So, I simply did them over and that’s all we want…showcase the item, because remember it is a bloggers job to show off the items being blogged and hopefully make someone else want to own them as well.
Most importantly, we love most of our bloggers…MOST, because without you…we wouldn’t have a job and it is with you that we work together to make the brand the best it can be by sharing their amazing products with our own personalized perception. Don’t ever get discouraged, we all started somewhere and if your heart is in it, you will succeed.
