I’m a Mood fabrics shopper and as such receive their emails they send out each week. Today in my in box was the announcement of the Mood Sewing Network featuring their hand-picked selection of 9 bloggers.
Does everyone think this is a great idea? Or are you like me and have a twinge of pure disgust at this blatant abuse of these 9 blogging ladies?
Really! I couldn’t believe I was seeing some of my most favorite fashion bloggers being used by Mood Fabrics! (Yes, I am thinking they are being used. Or bought or something like that.)
It is one thing to blog about Mood fabrics and share what your experiences are with both the business and the products they offer and it’s another thing to be ‘bought’ by the business and essentially be their mouthpiece for what to me seems like just a pittance. I really am in disbelief because I would have thought these ladies valued their blogging and their time more than to be used like this in such a way. I guess I think it is one thing for a company to GIVE you a product for your expert review but just another to now be beholden to the company because you’ve essentially been ‘bought’ when you accepted a ‘fabric allowance’ in exchange for a post. So is it just me or do any of you share my feelings too?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
