There is a difference between being good enough to have people contact you for the purpose of offering a deal with you and people who go to others asking for something in return for the same deal. It’s hard to explain this to many bloggers because in this time and place, most bloggers find it hard to believe that persistently good content can still get you somewhere. After all, how would telling people about your life get you offers for hosting or other goodies?
But things like that do happen, only because persistence pays off and if you’re really good at something, people will hear and help you out. However, I don’t think talking about this any further does anyone any good. If it works for us all, then it makes sense to keep doing what we like. Criticism aside, it’s just a matter of knowing why you do what you do without being defensive. I’ve got no reason to claim hypocrisy or jealousy because I already have what I like with what I do.
You either get it or you don’t. The unfortunate thing is, most don’t.
