Blogger.Ed Forums really made me think and question the brands I work with and help promote here on Mummy's Shoes. I had never heard about The Nestlé Boycott until today and I very nearly took up an offer from them, without doing any proper research into the brand. I didn't as it happens, simply because the offer wasn't that attractive or interesting to me. But it has made me realise I must, for ethical reasons, look into the brands I am helping in future in much more depth.
I have seen a massive rise in PR emails and requests coming into my inbox daily now, offering items to review, campaigns to promote and requesting advertising rates etc. It means I am starting to get very particular about what I take up and what I don't, I simply haven't time to take up all the offers and I don't want to either. I am happy with what I have here.
Do you research the brands you work with? Would you sell your soul for a freebie?
