Yesterday, I have read an online write-up about the blogger's opinions pertaining to certain website writers with fake followers. I was amazed on how brave he was educating people about the negative effects of that scenario to brands, PR companies, and to the young citizens looking up to their idols. Although he came up with strong arguments, I think this issue was beyond our control. Why? It is because no matter how we try to lay every information on the table, the decisions will still be coming from the labels and the individuals behind it.
Instead of grieving over the spilled milk and be envious over our neighbor's success, I think it is the best time for us to hone our crafts even more. It is the right moment to create unique contents, sharpen our looks, and never forget to send proposals to the brands we love to work with. Social media's numbers may give statistical relevance but nothing beats honesty and self-respect.
Seriously, I have nothing against these people as some of them are close to me but I cannot deny the fact that cheating is not a good sport to excel. One may have thousands of followers and likes he/she wants, but everything will be evident on followers' interactions and reactions to your posts. I will always admire bloggers who worked hard on their accounts and will always look up to them. Whenever someone asks for my opinion on who to follow, I always refer their accounts.
Details: Cap (Reebok), Tee (Mall of Korea), Watch (Casio), Pants (Uniqlo Philippines) and Boots (Milanos).
Our energy is limited so we need to come up with ideas on how we can improve ourselves and be the better person. At the end of the day, we are only making fool of ourselves out of cheating.
Have a great day ahead! :)
