I recently saw a post on Facebook asking, “Why do bloggers apply when their Flickr doesn’t meet the requirements to do so?” The only reason this post even caught my attention is because I was mentioned in one of the comments. I found myself quickly typing a reply that soon turned into quite a paragraph. Thus, I decided to bring both the question and my reply to my own blog. So, here’s my answer.
As a blogger manager, I don’t mind seeing up & coming bloggers apply. They might not make the cut, but if I see that they have potential I will follow them and watch them closely. If they keep on applying, even when they don’t qualify…they are driving their name deeper into my brain. Sadly, there are some that simply do not have what it takes to be a successful blogger. What I don’t like as a blogger manager is being pestered inworld by an applicant that has been rejected.
It’s also important to remember that the purpose of bloggers is to showcase the designer’s creation to as many people as possible….to make those viewers want….neeeed that creation. THAT is the very reason to have bloggers. So that you have a variety of stylists showcasing items in various desirable ways.
