Being a blogger can sometimes feel like pushing treacle up a hill. No, this isn’t going to be a blog post about a blogger bitching about how hard done by they are. It’s an awesome job and I’m extremely privileged to be able to share my blog with you. When I first started blogging I had a list of 5 or 6 stores that I desperately wanted to blog for. They weren’t all huge names but had an importance or significance to me. Over the last year I have applied for 4 out of those 6 stores, sometimes more than once, and unfortunately never been lucky enough to get on their lists. The reason I am thinking about this is because I saw a question posed on facebook by someone asking how others feel when they don’t get chosen as a blogger for store that they desperately want to blog for. I have spoken about this subject a little before too.
I think it’s fair to say that most bloggers, when they apply to blog for a particular creator, have a sense of whether they really really suit the brand style and therefore how much of a chance they have of being selected to blog for that brand or event. Most bloggers do everything they can to continuously improve their blog, their photo quality and the reach and readership of the blog and social media to enhance those chances. It is of course disappointing if you aren’t successful at the first, or even second attempt, especially if you feel you meet all the requirements and had a strong chance. Sometimes it’s just a personal preference of the person making the selection and if that’s the brand owner or a manager that they have put in charge of making that decision you just have to ‘suck it up buttercup’ and keep trying to improve. Accepting that you may never know why is hard but I do always believe everything happens for a reason…so who knows what is waiting round the corner.
