As you have heard me say, many times in my videos, sometimes I like to make a post, just for me… now this doesn’t mean, something I don’t share.. no, it means I just want to share something I personally went out, and purchased, or something from one of my groups, I completely adore, and maybe I have blogged it before but, I don’t know, maybe it made an impression, and I just love to use it.
That is the case in this post..
I love Reign, and because I always put my sponsors first, I rarely blog things I actually buy myself.. I mean, I do but, it’s not a “center piece”.. does that make sense?
I love being a member of collaboration groups because, then there is so much to choose from.. So, I am liable to find something that I really love, and will share, over and over again..
Now, please, for people that are reading this, do not get the wrong impression..
When I say “sponsor”, I do not mean that the groups, designers, or managers PAY ME…
It is just like in real life.
A company, gives me items, in which I share on my blog, and in turn, this advertises for the company..
So, when a designer passes along a blogging package, then are in sense, sponsoring my blog, by giving me the items that I would normally have gone a purchased, and I blog them.
AKA.. they are sponsoring me.
Now, I have gotten strange IMs from some lady, which I mentioned in my PSA video (which if it is not up yet, it will be soon), and I get the impression that she assumed that I get paid for blogging.. I do not.
No one does, as far as I know.. so if this is the reason for you being interested in blogging, don’t do it!
The only payment, most bloggers receive, are in products.
This is what came up when I googled, “what is product sponsorship”
I felt the need to put all of this in writing because, I have noticed that many bloggers, and designers are at odds on what to refer to the product sponsorship.. And I wanted to alleviate concerns like that one..
I have the highest respect for my sponsors.. and this is why alot of the time, I do not do these “just for me” posts because, in my mind, how my blogging ethics work is this.. Sponsors first.. they take the time to make these items, and then are nice enough to send them to me, as product sponsors, so yes, I am going to take care of their needs first.. Then, I sometimes have enough lindens to go to events such as Collabor88, Uber, Kustom9, Chapter4, Shiny Shabby or Fifty Linden friday even.. I purchase those items, and I incorporate sponsored items, as well as whatever I have purchased. And then, and only then, if I am up to it, I will do “just for me” posts.. where I will share some of my personal choices.. and these can include personal purchases, and sponsored items!
It sometimes makes it difficult when I am applying to blog for a store I may love but, I may not have blogged in a long time, or a new store that I just heard of, and I do not have posts of their stores.. in those cases, I tell them the exact same thing as I have just told all of you..
If they choose me to become one of their bloggers, I will make them a part of my priority list.. As sponsors, I would make a promise to blog as often as I could, I would abide by their guidelines, and go out of my way to make sure, I do not purposely let down one of my sponsors.
Sometimes, this is a good thing, and it works.. others, it doesn’t but, I have had some of my sponsors for many years, and I am thankful that I have never let them down to the point that they released me.. so, thank you to my current sponsors.. you are all truly amazing!
