This evening this comment was left on my blog:
Val aren’t you supposed to indicate when you’re being compensated for a post or product placement on your blog or twitter feed? You seem to promote a lot of goods and services. Some are probably things that you like but others must be for compensation.
The comment is correct, bloggers are supposed to say when they get paid for advertising a product. Sadly I have never been offered payment for promoting anything on either my blog or Social Media to be honest I wish I was paid to do it! I’m happy to spread the word about good services or products especially in Sligo.
The particular comment was left on my Insomnia competition. This came about because I posted a photo on my Sligo Secrets page saying they were opening in Sligo. I try to be all about good news if I can, especially with all the negativity around. Insomnia contacted me and offered a prize for my readers. I wasn’t paid to run the competition.
I have on occasion been invited for lunch or perhaps dinner somewhere or to an event and I always say when I’ve been invited. I have never been paid though and if I was I’d certainly let you know.
So I just want to let you know there has never been a sponsored post on my blog page or my Social Media feeds.
