Wow...

Just got an email from a company that said it was their second request for me to remove a discount code from my blog. It took me a while to even find it, it was posted over a year ago. Seems to me that people would understand that after a certain amount of time (a year, certainly) that the code would not be valid. Not to mention the fact that I do not remove posts. They sent me the email requesting that I put the discount code on my blog. I told them to definitely rest assured that I would no longer post anything regarding their website. Has this happened to anyone else? This is a blog for fun, a personal blog. It is not a commercial blog. I don't get things for blogging about certain people, I just blog about things that I love. I am so frustrated about this, I'm not sure why it bothered me so much, but it did. I love writing and searching for cute gift ideas, but I almost wonder if it's worth all of the drama...

You would think they would enjoy the free advertising! Some people. Try not to let it get to you. I know it's hard. Have a great weekend!

ARE YOU SERIOUS?? You would think companies & small businesses would be grateful for the FREE exposure you provide by highlighting their products. Not only that, but you would also think your readers would recognize post dates & not attempt to use a discount that is obviously outdated-then point the finger at you.

Whats wrong with this world!

Wait-they sent you the code to post and now want you to take it down?! I wonder if it still works and they don't want people using it. Either way that is very rude. They shouldn't ask people to post about their company if they don't want free publicity!
