YOU DON'T HAVE TO REALLY READ THE PRICELIST of these tidbits.

Becox that's not the point.

Point is, I AM PISSED.

You might have read here that i didn't start this blog thinking that i'd earn a living out of it.

So last year July when i started doing writeups for brandings and blogshops all in, i wasn't out to earn from them.

But i reckoned i should charge a nominal sum since they're not my friends nor my family, and i have no need for more clothes cox i can afford more clothes since the kind of clothes that i'd buy are just too affordable.

I used to charge $20 for each post. One month, 5 post, maybe? It really didn't matter.

THAT, was last year July. Readership, 500 plus minus, daily.

EVEN AT THAT PRICE, there were blogshops asking for discount. DISCOUNT?! SMLJ YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT?!

So i wouldn't reply. But sometimes i might have already stated in the email my bank account number, i mean, $20, HAVE TO BE A EASY AND FAST DEAL, no???

And then from $20, there were more coming in, so i charge $30. Then $50. Then $70. Then $80. Then $90. Then $120. Then $150. Then $180. Then $200. Okay! Finally some breather! Yeah, for what it's worth. Whatever, i was going for the bulk and truth is, writing for blogshops, IS EASY, but i will still up the price gradually, so i can spend more time admiring my new pair of boobs =D Point's coming up.

EVERY SINGLE TIME, there's some news or something good that happened to me, which means my blog readership will go up, these fucked-up blogshops will come back.

They will CONVENIENTLY, state lines alike below:

"Hi QiuQiu, sorry we got back so late. We would like to confirm the slot now. Please let us know the your account number for transfer"

So late? "So late" is still reasonable for a two weeks delay, to me. Cox they might need sometime to discuss about cash flow, or their stock issues or whatever.

IF SO LATE IS FUCKING THREE MONTHS, i curse you have period "so late" it's so-later than so-late.

Thing here is, THEY ARE SO PRETENTIOUS!!!

1) Pretend that they did genuinely consider to take up my offer before

2) Pretend it's nothing wrong they are assuming if they reply with this log of email which had rates and all stated before, i would charge them as according to that price quoted three months ago.

3) Pretend that they don't know that i am more known and popular now, which is the reason why they are replying my reply to them.

There was one incident that really pissed me off big time, after first ep of Budget Barbie, there was this email that came,

"Hey, payment made. Which day can we choose from? Thanks! Btw really enjoy your budget barbie show. Keep it up!"

FUCK YOU PRAISE ME TO SUGARCOAT YOUR INSULT RIGHT?! I offered $90 that time (two months before BB airs), you confirm, i give you banking details, then you never reply.

When you reply, i was charging $150. Still dare to tell me things like "we agreed on a rate" RATE?! RATE NIMADE TOU! A rate that you didn't care about! I am not a ex-girlfriend that'd buy your lousy I WILL CHERISH YOU FROM NOW ON stories, okay?!

You fuck me up, you fucked this up. No deal!

I'm usually VERY nice and will even be open to negotiation if the person asking sound really sincere about needing the advert but has little budget.

But to blogshop owners who had my previous rate, i highly suggest you send a new email to enquire or state in your very late reply to ask for my current rate.

It's all small money but still money nonetheless. Why should i be generous about money to people i don't care about? I'd rather use the money to buy homeless dogs a meal than to let these shameless human beings shortchange me.

I don't care if anyone take this the wrong way as if i am breaking my own rice bowl, but really, it's not like i hate people who advertised with me. They should know! I'm very nice to deal with and is flexible so things can work out good for everyone, advertisers, me and the readers. It's the shameless ones that can really make my blood boil.

And there are people who ACTUALLY HAVE THE THICK CB-FACE CHEEKS to ask me if i can blog for them for free, and they can give me one item in return. WAAAAaaaaa?!!! ONE, ITEM AH?! WAAAAAaaaaah~~~~! *sudden serious face* Don't be so naive can?

Unless you're a big brand, or you serve great food that i'm keen in, or you can offer anything that's of my interest, don't try your luck like that. Common rings and necklaces i can find anywhere. Seriously!

SIAM!

So please don't come back to me, obviously knowing that i have become something better than before, and still pretend in hope to engage me at a previously-stated price. You buy old-school tidbits now also more expensive already.

And last time, Police wear deh-kor. Everybody have since moved on..

HAHA OMG I should totally like reply blogshops with this blog post URL.
I seriously hate those that email me a chunk of text and expect me to blog it word for word and it's full of stuff like how the owner thinks their items very different or how they're unique etc and it's so nonsense cause they're all the same -_- and then add in stuff like how they thank their devoted fans and wtv.

Like seriously lor if you're super nice and friendly to me I make extra effort to blog nicely for you without you asking me. Common sense right?! For those super demanding ones I just do the bare minimum.

Anonymous said...

agreed! nice ones!
i support u! :)
at least u r not pretentious!

Valerie Goh said...

qiu qiu chill :)

Qiuting said...

Sophie, i think it's the mid-end bloggers like us that are getting shits like this lor. I dare they go insult bigger names like that?!

And yes, sometimes i even do A LOT more for the really nice ones. Cox they put in extra effort to make things pleasant. Like adding in little gifts and tokens etc.

Anonymous said...

Hi!
Sorry but can I ask you something? Do you accept free items (worth more than just rings and necklaces definitely! Maybe like a few shoes?) in exchange for a blog post? I don't have a blogshop yet but I'm intending to start one and I would like you to help me advertise. I don't mind paying money but the thing is I don't have much now so yea... :)

Ps: I don't dare to email you about this cause I'm scared that you'll be pissed!

Esther said...

Either you and me are from different generation or you live in a place where things are cheaper than mine.

At my time super ring was 20cents!! Why yours 15cents!!

Esther said...

Sometimes got blogshop ask me write advertorial for $10 -_-

Then got some take up "short mention" rate, ask for discount, and still ask me to remain as top post for 48 hours, put in 7 pictures, and must separate post from other blogshops, and DEMAND alot alot alot of other requests. Change this change that after publish, etc.

If like polite polte paisei paisei ask, I still will help more willingly but sometimes they are quite rude lor T_T

And then some of them after seeing my rates, go "but whoandwho blogger charge only $__ and provide this and that this and that".

I felt like saying "THEN GO AND ADVERTISE ON WHOANDWHO's BLOG LAH".

Tsk!

nadnut said...

Same like Esther, I get comments like "So and so charges $10 - $20 for a month banner and writeup. We're comfortable with her rate".

Neh neh. $10 - $20?!? Crazy or what?!

Qiuting said...

Anon, you email me better =))

Esther, LOL! We from same generation and time space, BUT MY MAMA SHOP AH NEH MORE HONEST THAN YOURS! Lol!!!

Est and Nadnut and Soph, ALL THE BLOGGER WOES!!! Lol. I know, they always throw the so-and-so more traffic, charges less. Then? Common sense says? GO LOR?!!!! No brain to think meh??

There must be a reason why people keep coming back for second advert, third advert and so on.. Right?

Becox we write good shit! Lol.

Anonymous said...

Will it be better to hv a page on the ad rates so blogshop owners can view from there?

Anonymous said...

Wtf! You think you so famous until you can charge so much? Some people even more famous than you also never charge so much lor! I know you would say something like then go advertise with them lor! But i am just trying to say that not because you're a tad more famous than before then you think you're like the world's most famous person -.- you need to earn money by blogging then how about those who have to pay so much just for a blog post that doesn't even stay at the top for at least 24hr. Somemore people work so much more than you just blogging away.

Those are all hard earned money. They pay because they believe you could help a little to their business and not getting conned you so called 'famous bloggers'. -.-

Qiuting said...

Last Anon, apparently I AM FAMOUS ENOUGH for you to know me. Why? You guilty of doing shameless things?

Well, don't be sour just cox you have to work harder for money. Generally people with lesser talent, lesser brain, lesser look, has it the hard way. Not saying you must be that sort, but looking at what you commented, YOU ARE. LOL. Dont need to put me side by side with those people who need to work hard for they HARD-EARN money. I DONT CARE.

And you pay $1 for canned drinks at mama shop, $1.85 at 7-11. Are they conning you too? FUCK OFF. 7-11 provide 24 hour convenience, I deliver better job, in some way.

Anonymous said...

huh, $10-$20 for advertising?!
i don't know the market rates but to me it's like dirt cheap for advertising leh! should not bargain anymore. taking advantage of u i believe. i feel upset for u.

OH. You are the one who is PRETENTIOUS then...

Qiuting said...

Anon, the people who hang around then all knew i say whatever i want OFF tv. DO YOU KNOW ME BACK THEN? I SWEAR ON BLOG ALSO KENA NEWSPAPER FRONTPAGE saying i am a bad role model to my TV 'fans'. Which consist of even 8 yro boy.

So having said in previous posting that i started this blog just so that i could keep in touch with those people showered concern and care during the TV show, i had to REALLY consider if i can put as many FUCK YOUs in my posting.

AND, seriously, i don't scold bad words on TV means i pretentious? YOU ARE SO STUPID, i can't help you.

Anonymous said...

Swearing won't make you more like xx, you know? You are still pretentious if not why are you giving away so many stuff on your show? Since you want to be a b.itch on your blog, why try to be nice on your show?

ForgetitQQ said...

Pretentious much ?

Why is the tone of your blog so different from the image you project on BB ?

2-faced or bipolar ?

Anonymous said...

looking at the comments , QQ says she has the looks ?

Yea , the looks of makeup painted face , she's nothing more than a painting ?

Looking at the non-makeup look is REALLY puke-inducing as she suggests & here she can say that her painting makes her "have the looks"

People who have "the looks" , charge as much and scold ppl like 泼妇 are usually China prostitutes .

& what talent ? Photoshop talent ? Cheapskate talent ? Those i agree , don't see any else though .

Just 2-cents worth .

sophiewillocq said...

Huh these anons are damn lame. I mean it's totally up to you how much you wanna swear what. If they don't like it they can go read straits.com. Sure no swear words.
And why the hell does you swearing mean you're trying to be like Xiaxue?! She invented curse words is it?! Or did she patent swearing in blogs?!

And to anon, Qiuting is merely highlighting how blogshop owners have no professionalism in asking for advertisements. Why are you upset at her for charging xxx amount?!

What kind of stupid comment is "Wtf! You think you so famous until you can charge so much?" It's called DEMAND -> SUPPLY. If you sold cookies for $1 each but now people are asking for 500 and you can't bake so many, obviously you increase the price and bake less right?!

And how is Qiuting pretentious anyway?! She is the total opposite of that because she is bloody blunt and says she's pretty and etc. You may think she's thick-skinned or whatever, but pretentious no. Pretentious would be girls who are pretty/skinny and always going "Omg I'm so ugly so fat I need to lose weight" etc etc.

Since you're such an expert on perfect blogging etiquette and persona, go start your own blog. After all, you think all of Qiuting's looks, talents etc are all fake right? Then you can accomplish the same no?

Qiuting said...

Anon, giving away things was already part of the show. Fuck you. I am not trying to be nice, nor trying to be a bitch. I AM nice to people who are nice and i CAN BE a bitch to people like you.

ForgetitQQ, Can you be nice to people who are unnecessarily unkind to you? I wouldn't be nice to people like you =)

Anon, wtf you saying? Your points very weak. Try again. Make it 5 cents worth.

SOPHIE, I LOVE YOU. Lololol!

Rina said...

I really liked you when i was watching the 1st few episodes of BB. But i find you extremely SUCKY and irritating after reading ur blog posts and comments. U're totally trying to be like XX or u'll say u have similar personality as her. FUCK LA. Ugly BITCH yearning for boobs. Disgusting to the core.

Rina said...

Sophie u're cool! U know how to justify ur points with proper reasons. Unlike someone who is only capable of giving brainless comments like 'i wouldn't be nice to people like u=)'. Gosh what's they smiley face doing there? P***

Qiuting said...

Rina, yeah, your comment make perfect points. YEAH RIGHT. Why do i have to justify for whatever i say here? IT'S MY SPACE.

Fuck you, Rina =DDDD

FUCK YOU RINA!!! Get it? =)

FUCK OFF.

Rina said...

FUCK U QIUQIU. IN UR SHOW ACT KIND ONLY.

ForgetitQQ said...

@Sophie , i was right .

According to your definition , she is a SUPER mean person pretending to be kind , like , hey , I AM nice to people who are nice .




Huh these anons are damn lame. I mean it's totally up to you how much you wanna swear what. If they don't like it they can go read straits.com. Sure no swear words.
And why the hell does you swearing mean you're trying to be like Xiaxue?! She invented curse words is it?! Or did she patent swearing in blogs?!

We won't say that XX was the one who invented them , but she carries them well , maybe QQ should go dye her hair in all sorts of colours and look more ah-lian , everyone has a different image you know ?


"And to anon, Qiuting is merely highlighting how blogshop owners have no professionalism in asking for advertisements. Why are you upset at her for charging xxx amount?!"

Where is her professionalism as a blogger , and you , as a friend ? Though i can understand blog traffic puffs some's ego(s)

Since you're such an expert on perfect blogging etiquette and persona, go start your own blog. After all, you think all of Qiuting's looks, talents etc are all fake right? Then you can accomplish the same no?

I guess not everybody has interests and time in managing a blog + entertaining others + replying haters .

ForgetitQQ, Can you be nice to people who are unnecessarily unkind to you? I wouldn't be nice to people like you =)

You're just being defensive :)
Plus , a quote from the bible (not saying that I'm a christian) : A soft answer turns away wrath , you can go search . The bible is valid till today because it has truths in it .


"Acting kind" are the almost perfect words .
How uncivilised , you just say "Fuc* you" randomly , today like an ah-lian , you call people cao ah beng for what , you are an ahlian yourself . Don't you agree ? Or do i have to give more supporting points to prove it ? There're ample in your blog .

ForgetitQQ said...

I think your CHEST like airplane runway , totally smooth :)

Really , you think you're really slim , really pretty , but too bad , you don't have the assets of a woman , have to resort to fakes .

Qiuting said...

FORGETITQQ, forget it. Haha. I really don't think your mental capability can catch any of our balls.

You are typing everything trying to be smart, but you're just so stupid. All your points are invalid and lame, not countering whatever point you're trying to counter.

But really, do you love me or hate me? You give me hits, you give me money =D SONG BO?!??!!?

delatrizx said...

Geez. All these anons are too free. Get a life.

Just because QQ is straightforward and scolds people and just potrays who she really is, she's trying to be like Xiaxue? People have the right to be who they are. And don't tell me you're not trying so hard to be somewhat like someone else in your life too that you regard as your role model. If not, you might be behaving exactly like that friend of yours, or someone else. Does that mean you're totally trying to be like them?

If you say you aren't trying to be like someone else or don't behave like anyone else you know, please, don't be so pretentious and stop acting like you're so special. That's a total lie.

And to ForgetitQQ:
You want to quote the bible, tons of things can be quoted back to you equally. Plus, I don't believe the bible or any other religious scripture actually encourages people to troll and go around insulting others. Is your answer very soft? Going around calling people pretentious, 2 faced or bipolar is soft? Please don't make me laugh.

This is her personal blog and she can do what she wants. Her show is hers to deal with and she's already doing a good job showing people bargains and giving out free things so what's there to complain about? Maybe you're just upset that you're not the one popular and famous with a show and blog. Awww.

Well, if you aren't happy here, you are free to leave and nobody will miss you. I'm sure Sophie and QQ won't!

ForgetitQQ said...

Really .

@delatrizx (the person who put words in your mouth)
If you would rather this be a personal blog, i will suggest that you private it.

Instead of letting it lurk around the internet for eyes. Then no one will scold you or hate you :)

Wouldn't be here, earning from blogshops, sponsors without readers.

Agree?

@QQ, please, if i needed to give you points, you'll be a VERY smart woman who will not be conned by random people. This shows that you are extremely gullible, thick-headed, dense. SO i do not see the need to present it debate-style, which i can . It'll be wasted like "dui niu tan qin". Totally wasting time & effort.


FORGETITQQ, forget it. Haha. I really don't think your mental capability can catch any of our balls.

You are typing everything trying to be smart, but you're just so stupid. All your points are invalid and lame, not countering whatever point you're trying to counter.

But really, do you love me or hate me? You give me hits, you give me money =D SONG BO?!??!!?

"Haha. I really don't think your mental capability can catch any of our balls." Really, what balls do you possess? Eye balls, fish balls, but no boobs ya? That's why can't catch :) Do you know my mental capability? Who are you trying to kid? From reading this, my psychology knowledge tells be your confidence is wavering. Who is the "our"? Did you catch ours?

What am i trying to counter? Do i need to?
Every of your comments/posts prove my points and counter the degraders. Need i say more? Well, with your rep, i think it is more difficult people will believe that your traffic will help in advertising. Since most are haters and may boycott all products you advertise. Plus, you think there's only one "ForgetitQQ"? you don't know how many people there are behind the keyboard criticising your every word, wake up and stop deluding yourself, mask-girl :)
You either be nice to your readers who TRY so hard to provide you suggestions, there you are , "恩將仇報" . We did kindly provide you suggestions before these comments or go back to loserland where you came from.

Plus, do i need to "try to be smart"? Do you even know who i am? Who am i "trying to be smart" to? There is absoulutely no need, little girl.

& the hokkien is super jarring, probably should go "街上 jiao mai". Thats why they say that you're a beggar out there.


more later, not free now.

delatrizx said...

lol ForgetitQQ i don't know what to say to you. People like us follow QQ's blog and check her comments and reply to her etc because we support her and like her, but you reply so fast also and keep coming back just to scold her.

You say you dislike her, also don't know how to believe you. Cause I don't think anybody will bother doing such things over and over just for hate. That's rather loser-ish.

ForgetitQQ said...

@Andrea, sorry, all of us holiday now. VERY free to play.

&I don't think blogshop owners & sponsors are so stupid not to check comments and rep of blogger before asking for advertisments and believe they'll get sales from these adv :)

ForgetitQQ said...

@Andrea, we think that people like you who talk as if it's your business, have no sense of shame & butt in weirdly.

ForgetitQQ said...

@Andrea

And to ForgetitQQ:
You want to quote the bible, tons of things can be quoted back to you equally.

How about you quote some back?

Plus, I don't believe the bible or any other religious scripture actually encourages people to troll and go around insulting others. Is your answer very soft?

Used to be girl, used to be. My friend attempted sending her a really soft email ; she misunderstood it and made it as though she was the person who was wrong.

Going around calling people pretentious, 2 faced or bipolar is soft? Please don't make me laugh.
We didn't call her 2-faced or bipolar girl, please read carefully, its a question mark , please learn your punctuation. You mean your english so bad?

This is her personal blog and she can do what she wants. (I've already gave you an answer to that)

Her show is hers to deal with and she's already doing a good job showing people bargains and giving out free things so what's there to complain about?

Sorry, we didn't complain about the show. Why you so weird one? Your english bad or what? We complained that she is projecting 2 different images.

Maybe you're just upset that you're not the one popular and famous with a show and blog. Awww.
Ya, we're upset that we don't have so many haters to deal with and a whole lot of time to waste doing all these. What a joke, you make us laugh, really.


@QQ
