As well as writing your soaraway Shoot Up I read a lot of other diabetic blogs. Generally they’re interesting, insightful and useful; however it really gets my goat when people use their platforms to promote some other service or product that is entirely unrelated to the topic of their blog. Frankly, it’s unprofessional, amateurish and downright dishonest – it cheats dutiful readers.
With this in mind, therefore, I’m not going to use your soaraway Shoot Up to promote my wife’s handbag business stripykat. The fact that each handbag is handmade & unique and that they are incredibly good value for money and ideal for Christmas gifts is neither here nor there.
I also refuse to mention that stripykat has been featured in British Vogue or that Katie is one of only twenty Scottish designers currently displaying their products in the National Museum of Scotland’s renowned “Gifted” exhibition.
Only the shoddiest of blogs would go onto say that stripykat also sells a great selection of unique iPod & MP3 holders and camera cases in addition to hairbands and scarves, which are great accessories that will beautifully set off your favourite outfit.
It would also be deeply unprincipled to say that stripykat ships worldwide (that includes you USA!) and securely accepts payments via PayPal in your local currency.
No, I’m not going to do that – it would be wrong. Move along there, nothing to see.
