Are Bloggers and Vloggers Becoming Too Demanding Already?

Are beauty bloggers becoming too demanding already?

We all know bloggers and vloggers have now become a force to be reckoned with. Even companies and brands recognized blogging and vlogging as a new way for them to reach out to their target market.

Unfortunately, some bloggers and vloggers think they can abuse PR/brands and milk them out for more freebies! Some even go as far as contacting the PR/brands and demand that they get sent the same products as what other bloggers/vloggers received because they were not satisfied with what they got. Instead of being thankful, they complain and let greed win over.

Moreover, there’s also quite a number who, immediately after creating a blog account or Youtube channel, go on an email spree and send PR/brands request for product samples. They don’t even have a decent blog post or video up yet!

These things may sound crazy, but they do happen. Yes, I’m a blogger myself, but I also get to be on the other side of the fence, sending PR kits to bloggers/vloggers/media as part of my work.

So I know this is the reality, a sad one if I may add. I don’t want the blogging and vlogging community to be looked down upon one day (if not yet, that is) as nothing but a bunch of demanding freeloaders.

For bloggers and vloggers, ask this one question to yourself:

Am I blogging just for the freebies or because it is something I’m passionate about? 

I know you may or may not agree with me but it is just my own opinion. I love hearing from my readers! Do leave a comment, tweet me at @hazelsalcedo, send questions via my Ask Box, or post a message on my Facebook page. Talk to you soon, okay? ❤
