But today I received one that really surprised me.
Everything 5 pounds tweeted out about looking for guest bloggers and I do love to write about fashion so thought I would find out more about it.
The email that came through this morning was possibly one of the worst approaches I have ever received.
I don't expect to be covered in diamonds for a blog post, hell these days I don't even expect to get paid.
However I do expect it to be mutually beneficial, and this approach from Everything 5 pounds is anything but.
They go to great lengths to tell us just how many hits they get, how many likes and followers they have, because, yes you've guessed it, they are going to raise my profile.
Because I can eat a raised profile can't I? and wear one also?
Apart from the email which took great pains to tell me that there was no financial reward in blogging for them, (I'm failing to see a reward at all) there was a PDF as well, with all the rules of blogging for them.
Apparently, if I don't like it. I don't have to take up their offer, and this is true.
But is ANYONE impressed by this?
Would YOU blog for them with this list of demands, with absolutely nothing in it for you?
I know I won't.
So let me hear your thoughts, perhaps Everything 5 pounds will read this and think about their blogger approach. Can you think of a better way they can work with bloggers?
Let me (and hopefully them) know.
