Let’s talk about this topic today in this post. It has been ages that I have a sponsored blog post. I used to like to try products, I still do but I preferred to buy them myself. Before my other beauty blogger friend start bombing me, I will be giving a disclaimer. I am not saying all the people who get sponsors lied about their products, most of my bloggers friend out there who are honest and hold a good integrity in their blogging. I wouldn’t say I am an expert in blogging, my english sucks (I had bad my grammer and limited vocab list.) but that doesn’t stop me from blogging as I really put in effort in all my post and I am proud of it. I do snake some post at times but I never snake a review post.
The main reason why I was so pissed that I even have a post regarding this is because of a newbie blogger asking for freebies. I am usually a peaceful person but I detest newbie blogger asking freebies. They are the one spoiling bloggers image and make us like some greedy person. Of course, this is not the first time I see such thing. I had ever see before GW openly asking hair sponsors. (Dun ask me who GW is, those who are in the beauty blogging industry should know who I meant) But today, I got pissed because this person, Aqeysha Muhammed started faming Malaysia’s Etude House.
These are the screenshot that was captured by my phone with regards to what this person did. The first photo is her later request to ask for sponsorship. Out of curiosity, I clicked and I saw her blog only have 7 post. 6 of which was just written on September. *give her a round of applause* The next picture was that she complained Malaysia’s Etude House did not reply her?!? Honestly, 2nd photo was a older comment of hers and there are also a few other comment that Malaysia’s Etude House don’t reply to her but see her changed in attitude?
This is a classic example of cheapo to the max.
If she is so pissed with Malaysia’s Etude House, then why bother to ask for sponsorship? For most bloggers, if we disliked certain brand, we will just not blogged about it. It doesn’t matter to us at all because there are just so many similar brands around this market. Why stooped so low? It is such a disgraced to have people like this having the title of a beauty blogger. Many of us work hard and published post. I am not saying it is wrong to ask for sponsorship but not when you only have 7 post in your blog. If you are a newbie beauty blogger reading, please take a minute to think why did you blog? If you blogged because there are freebies then you shouldn’t have start blogging in the first place. Even xiaxue took sometime to make it to be Singapore most influential bloggers before people start sponsoring her. Let me say something blunt, if you are not famous or have your own style of blogging then who are you to ask for a sponsor? Do you seriously think brands would even reply u? Just take a minute to think about what I have said.
