Speaking about the work of the blogger recently I found very interesting a post made by a designer of a well-known brand. I would like to share it with you, although surely she has more readers than me, I found her words very comforting, in fact she answers many of our “because, when we are rejected” and learn to accept those frustrations that sometimes produce those ugly notes that we receive … I hope you enjoy it, written by Narcisse Constantine
After almost 2 years of having the store, I felt it was time to give the blog team a bit of a refresh. Please understand this was in no way targeted towards anyone personally. If you were upset by what happened, please reach out to me so we can talk about it. ❤
On that note, I’ve advertised that I’m looking for bloggers, all my previous bloggers are welcome to reapply. As well as past applicants, which I’d like to discuss for a moment as I was contacted recently about a past applicant not being accepted in previous applications.
1. You are not the same blogger you were the last time you applied.
Just like creating, Blogging is something that develops and grows. It is not just about the pictures you take, it’s about growing your followers. I’m gonna let you in on a secret, if you don’t already know, are you ready for it…….
2. People follow your Blog based on YOU, not the stores you blog for.
There are MANY ways to blog. You might want to take beautiful pictures so you watch heaps of tutorials and focus on improving your imagery. You might love to tell stories so you’ll take a picture and put a story along with it. Maybe your blog is more review style. Essentially, you need to blog the way in which it feels most enjoyable for you. Everyone is different and different blogs are going to appeal to a different audience. And that’s ok too.
3. Now onto the topic of blogging for stores. You are going to get rejected & it could be from the very store that you’re aspiring to blog for. And you’re going to be upset. And that’s OK too.
It doesn’t make you a bad blogger or not worthy. How you take that rejection and change your focus from defeat into something positive is up to you. Then, if you go back to #1, When they next open up their applications, You are not the same Blogger you were the last time you applied.
4. Blog stores you love, even if they aren’t your ‘sponsor.’ I can assure you, if you blog all the items in your post, whether you have purchased the item or received it as a review item, BLOG EVERYTHING in your picture. Creators notice when you are selective in your item lists. Trust Me.
