Free Product Isn’t Really Free

11.30.2012

Found on CraftSnark, a really awesome website with a ton of snarky posters and graphics depicting what it’s really like to be a craft blogger.  Start reading the posts and you’ll get addicted.  Or at least, I am addicted.  It’s.all.SO.TRUE.

And yes, often companies contact me offering me free products to use in a tutorial on my blog.  When it’s itemized line-by-line like that….the time investment and financial investment doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.  Thank you CraftSnark!

    Haha, this cracks me up. I do reviews and giveaways frequently on my site- and I always want it to be a win-win… an equal investment for both parties but trying to explain why I can’t write a detailed post with SEO keywords and 18 pictures with 8 posts on Pinterest sometimes is just ridiculous… sometimes it’s not worth it!
