A note on the side from Y.F.: After having promoted fashion in SL for almost 5 years now, I would like to thank all of the designers who supported me and worked with me during this time. I hope to continue our successful cooperation in the years to come.
One thing worries me, though: With Mesh on the rise in SL and a lot of new faces on the fashion market, some designers seem to think that bloggers work for them and that sending them review copies means that they are paying them for their efforts and have a right to get their items blogged. This is a misconception! Fashion bloggers are not hired PR workers. Having them join your blogger group does not make them your employees, it just makes it easier for you to send them stuff! The truth is: Bloggers voluntarily sacrifice their free time so that designers can make more money. To provide them with the means (= review copies) to do so is the minimum designers can do.
And here's a another thought for you: Good bloggers are so busy that they don't have the time to wear most outfits a second time after posting them. Instead, they will most likely delete them afterwards to keep their inventory from overflowing. If they actually do wear your outfit in their rare private time it means that you actually created an outstanding product. It's the biggest compliment you can get from them.
So please, stop harrassing us with new rules, don't blackmail us with demands like "Obey or get kicked", and don't ask us to fill out forms or to apply for things like an event coverage. If you want to know how we work, read the review policy provided above! A good cooperation among partners - and that's what we consider ourselves to be: your partners - is always a question of give and take. If you are not happy with the coverage you receive for your products you might have chosen to send them to the wrong people. Make an effort to find out who you work with! Invest some time to get to know good bloggers personally instead of having them bossed around by some rude blogger manager on a power trip.
If one works with professional minded bloggers who don't like to embarrass anyone publicly but would rather contact them in private to point out possible oversights and flaws with their products so that they can correct them as fast as possible, not being blogged can mean one of two things:
- Either your item is still in the pipeline and will be blogged as soon as possible (most of us have a real life, too, remember!)
- or your product just failed to get us excited. As said before: We cannot guarantee that every item you send us will be featured in the
blog but we will try to blog everything we find interesting! Low quality items will be ignored.
