Yes, this is a serious post and I so wanted a picture of me posing blogger style, especially as we’re talking about identity. However the weather has been cold, the days dark and I haven’t had a chance to take a decent picture. This was one post I wanted to publish. So please appreciate the photos courtesy of Unsplash. I’d love to know if you can relate to this post……
I was only thinking about this subject the other day.
Which brings me onto the point of how genuine are some bloggers?Let me start by saying, I am not at all bitter, just slightly cynical.
A few months back I watched a video, she was listing her monthly favourites in great detail and a pair of flashy shoes popped up. The way she described them, anyone would think they were magic and would bring luck to any life.
She went as far as to say that she would buy a back-up as they had been worn so much. All these impressionable young girls who hang on her every word would no doubt believe her. The only thing this blogger failed to mention is that the shoes she was showing off were practically brand new with labels still intact. So I question how reliable is any review that this star gives? Has she been paid a wad load of cash to talk about these ‘must-have’ shoes and have her manicured toes even set foot in said pair of shoes in the first place?
God, I sound so cynical!
Do you ever question the reliability of bloggers and YouTube stars? Do you agree with me? What do you think?
