Earlier, I saw someone offering a so called “Food Review” in some Facebook blogging group.
The description of the offer was unclear, hence I asked for the detail.
It turns up that it isn’t just a food review, it is a hoax that just feed you with some candies and enslave you to do shitloads of things.
As most bloggers know, food review are usually the restaurant or food outlets inviting you to dine in their place, and bloggers and food reviewers are not exactly obligated to post up anything. Unless the blogger or the food reviewer feel that they deserve to be introduce to other people.
But this PR, the offer that he posted is utmost ridiculous. With a meal, he expected for multiple social network site blast and also blog post as something compulsory. Bloggers and food reviewers are compulsory to post in Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and also blog post. If it is a campaign, and not a regular food review, this would already priced at least RM300++++ for a low traffic blog. But the PR expect all these with just a simple meal.
Most furious thing is, the PR dare to insult me saying that I am demanding while I am just no one.
Hello! Who are you to say I am no one, while I also don’t know who the hell are you!?
And guess what? He evaluate my value with just the number of followers and friends in my Facebook and Twitter!?
Plus, I am just asking about the clearer description of that offer, not even stating any of my demands at all!
What the hell is wrong with this PR!? Don’t he know that a person’s influence, doesn’t reflect with the number of friends and followers in the person’s personal Facebook and Twitter account!?
And how the hell he think that someone who is a social media influencer, can only represent their own personal blog? Don’t he know there are a lot of media sites are consist of several writers?
I am wondering if he is really in the blogging industry or not, or just a blogging agency wannabe. What he did, and what he had offered, has clearly showed that he is not a player that can survive long in this industry. He had failed the very first rule of running business in this industry, which is to respect and value the media personnel.
So, my early condolence to him to survive in this blogging industry.
Die well, rest in peace!
