So, like I said in my last post, I have no income (I get about £40 a month working for my sister, which just covers my mobile bill and pet insurance). Claire and I are still working really hard on our secret project which we hope to launch by August and that should bring in a bit of pocket money (hopefully!) but in the meantime I just can't afford much of anything. It's getting to be really depressing as I can't afford to pay my Mum rent and Claire has had to put the vast majority of funds towards our project as well as buying lots of things for me. I really hate to even think about it, but how would you feel if I had ads or a paypal donate button on my page? Please be completely honest, if you hate that idea and think I'm being greedy just say, I won't be offended at all. Also I've accepted some things for review recently, which I've always done, I've just got more offers recently but I assure you I will always tell the truth about my feelings for the product and always point out what was sent to me. I will never accept sponsored posts because they give me a funny feeling.
I've also been thinking about giveaways. I've wanted to do one for ages and infact have a few tiny bits and bobs stashed away but couldn't actually afford the shipping overseas at the minute (and I don't really have enough for a good giveaway at the moment anyway). I've never approached anyone asking them to send me products to review (in fact I have no idea how one would go about doing that!) but have been wondering about asking some companies if they would be interested in sponsoring a giveaway. What are your opinions on that?
I'm going to do a big blog sale soon, would you prefer it to just be on this blog or do you prefer it when people have specific sale blogs?
Also in one of my recent posts I asked about making a separate blog about hosiery. A lot of people said I should just post them here, I still think I'll make a separate blog because I've been wanting to post about tights for ages and never got around to it. I think having a blog that will be only for tights will give me the incentive to actually take some photos and make posts, otherwise the blog will shrivel up and die :P But people's reactions got me thinking about what you might like to see on this blog. At the moment it's almost entirely about cosmetics with a few fashion bits now and again. So I've put a little poll up there if you';d like to see any changes.
And how would you feel about some weekly posts? I used to do 'Muso Mondays' about my favourite bands but that shrivelled up and died :P I was thinking about things like a weekly post of things I'm lemming, or a favourite product of the week or something like that. How do you feel about those sort of regular posts? Or any suggestions for posts like that you'd be interested in?
Thanks for any comments you have for me!
