So I received yet another email about using my blog to pimp yoga goods and services.
"We follow your blog and believe that your content exemplifies the interests and lifestyle choices of "Person's Name"...we think "Person's Name" would connect with your readers...as a guest blogger on your site."
No. No, I don't think so. If you actually read my blog you would realise it's a personal blog. I will only ever write about things that effect me personally and if I do write about clothing or the likes, I will only write about things I have found for myself, respect and enjoy. I am not a sell out, and don't want money from blogging either. I cringe when I see other people doing this. I read blogs for the amazing personal experiences shared, not to shop.
By using this icon on my website I am stating...
1. That I am opposed to the use of corporate advertising on blogs.
2. That I feel the use of corporate advertising on blogs devalues the medium.
3. That I do not accept money in return for advertising space on my blog.
