3.) A bad day.
A bad day indeed.
You may not be up on the latest blog drama…allow me to indulge you. Because I am up on it. Always. For you.
There was a blog conference recently and as blog conferences go there were some speakers. One of those speakers represented a company called Aveda that produces a lot of hair care supplies, make up, perfume, etc.
The representative for this company was honest about the fact that Aveda does not believe in paying bloggers for product reviews. They feel payment influences the blogger to write something positive whereas simply paying a blogger with products will more likely get an honest response. Which is what they’re looking for.
Needless to say bloggers are up in arms and have unleashed on this company which I find pretty entertaining. You don’t see waitresses screaming at potential employers about their proposed wages. You either accept or move on. OR…if you live in Greece, maybe you riot, I don’t know.
When I’m approached to do anything online in exchange for anything but money, I pass. No hard feelings…just no thank you.
But because I’m not one to miss a party…I address Aveda’s outrageous sentiments in this personal message (aka a spoof on a bad day for bloggers and the tendency to overreact any time a company does or says something they disagree with):
