It’s been a little quieter than normal here on the blog, and I apologize for that. The big move right before traveling for the 4th of July holiday threw me off. I’m finally going to be at home all week, and I’ll have the chance to catch up on projects/content production — woohoo!
Anyway, today I wanted to chat about why it’s ok to say no to things as a blogger. Whether you’re just starting out or if you’ve been blogging for a while, there are a lot of partnerships out there that might not be a fit. And it’s ok to just straight up say no in these instances.
I just took on a partnership very recently that wasn’t a fit. I had been in talks with a PR company for weeks, and they dropped a bombshell on me at the very last minute that would mean I couldn’t produce high-quality visuals for the partnership. Rather than bailing a week before the experience, I thought it would be the professional thing to honor my word and still go on the experience — but boy, I was wrong. I spent an entire weekend on this project and because of the way the event was set up, I got very little visual content I could end up using. It was a waste of my time, their time, and some loved one’s time all around, and it’s a partnership I regret taking on.
