The Blogging Diaries: FAQs

Since you all loved my first post about my blogging journey, I felt like I should follow up on this topic as I have so much more that I want to say. So if you’re a blogger, a business or someone who has an interest in the industry, Keep on reading.

You all know that I started blogging in January 2017 because of my love of fashion, and back then I wasn’t really aware of what it would entail.

I’ve recently been asked some questions about my blog, and I wanted to share these with you as you may also benefit from reading this post.

What do “Blogger Hashtags” mean?

#Gifted

So, there are a few different variations to promoting a product on your blog or social media. The majority of the time, bloggers are given products in exchange for a review on the blog. If you are an influencer, you may be gifted this product for review on you social media channel.

#AD

Businesses may also pay said bloggers or influencers to promote their product. If money has been exchanged then the post is an AD.

#AF

Bloggers and Influencers may also receive commission for selling products through affiliate businesses.

How I choose which businesses/brands to work with

For one reason and for one reason only. I love the product. There have been times where I have been gifted a product and haven’t shown or promoted this, simply because I didn’t like it. Something that I detest in this industry is bloggers/influencers claiming to love a product when you know that they don’t give a hoot about it and are being paid to say so.

You will have noticed the Shop My Wishlist section on my website, these are affiliate links from various companies and I will ONLY post products that I would genuinely buy myself. Unfortunately I can’t buy them all as I don’t have Kim Kardashians bank account.

Why I don’t go to as many “Blogger Events” as I used to

A while ago, I would have went to every single event that I had been invited to but recently I decided to take a step back and only go to the events that would genuinely interest me.

Between working 9am – 5pm, working on my blog and buying our first house, I was really exhausted and finding it difficult to have a social life. So I decided a few months ago that I simply couldn’t attend as many events as what I wanted to.

I’d love to know your thoughts on bloggers and influencers opinions, and if it’s something you would consider when buying a product. Also, if you want to hear more about my blogging journey, please let me know. I’d love to hear from you! info@snazzyyazi.com
