YOUR BRAND IS NOT SPECIAL posted by

How do i bold the title in blogspot? I can't?

Okay.. Then you have..


If i'm really cool, i would end the post with this picture and then direct it to the blogshop that just pissed me off big time.

But i'm not cool, i'd like to rant.

You should read this post now. I wrote it November last year, totally pissed with blogshops who try their luck with me.

I don't know how the trend of blogshops is turning now, but i believe half of them are decent entrepreneurs, while the other half of them are a bunch of bitches and assholes who can't work with anyone else, and thus setting up a blogshop is the hope for them. You know, to grow it and make it into a bigger business so they can just make a comfy living from it and not have to work with anyone else since nobody likes them.

So not all blogshops are bad but i'd tell you one bad one. Later.

Leaving those who put in more effort doing exclusive self-manufactured collections aside, and leaving those who are just making a living buying and selling stuff after picturing them, KNOWING that their business is a buy-package-sell business, leave these two category of blogshop owners aside cox they are just making a living like anyone else.

The irritating ones are the ones who does the exact same thing as above, but would rave and rave about how distinguished their business is, how extensive their marketing strategy is, and for that, me as a blogger should be glad and thankful to have a chance to help them advertise on my blog.

Every now and then i get emails to ask if i'm keen for sponsorhsip, in return i just have to do simple credit on blog/ tweet about it. I turn them all down now becox i am very happy with what the current sponsors are offering me as a sponsorship, a real sponsorship with a very significant number of outfits a month.

Having said that, please don't email me to ask for sponsorship of one piece/ two piece per month. That's not sponsorship, that's YOU THINK I AM CHEAP.

Err.. Okay lah, to be fair, i am quite cheap, but my blog is not. My blog traffic is not cheap. How? Sounds arrogant not? But it's true. Moving on..

So i've been getting emails from blogshops that offers shitty deals to me, in return for me to blog for them. I've replied ALL of them nicely becox they are only putting it in a way, "Please help us" not hardcore in a way "Help us if not it'd be your loss"

So the breaking point that leads to this post is this email i just saw.

 That would have cost you $300 already.
But i'd read on, maybe they'd offer to pay since they stated "Benefits"

So here's the irresistable benefits..

So you mean if i do so much, i'm not even a confirmed-ambassador?? I have to wait til i blog for a few launches and then you decide how i perform before you make me an ambassador?! Okay maybe be your ambassador i'd be paid like $500 - $1000 a month, i'd read on! To see what's the benefits of a AMBASSADOR!
 Deng deng deng!

So all in all, NO MONEY for me, A LOT OF WORK for me to do, and i get what? Clothes only? And 10% discount of what you didn't picked to give me that i want to buy?

Oh no, how can i forget!!!

I GET TO BE THEIR AMBASADOR!!!! =DDD
THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS ENDORSEMENT IN THE WHOLE FUCKING WORLD!!!

Weeeeeee~ I'm so thrilled i'm gonna piss my pants jumping and dancing and laughing!!!

NOT. So i replied. And she replied.

35 is a whole number for all the sponsored clothes i'm allow to get per month from TheBlogShop, The199Shop and a couple of others.

So this is it, i'm pissed, and i don't wanna be pissed for the same reason again.

You want to do business, you either be creative or you fork out money. In most cases, you have to be creative, AND fork out money. Creating a make-believe high and mighty ambassadorship is LOUSY and insulting for the blogger you approach. Correction, for the MORE KNOWN BLOGGER you approach.

Say really, why do i need to be your ambassador when more people will know about your brand through me than know me through your brand?

If i am, you gotta pay me for it.

And main point of this whole thing is, i am not alone. Many other bloggers get the same shit, over and over again and it's more often than not, from blogshops.

I don't care if it's becox younger/ bitchier/ more tactless people are starting up blogshop or they genuinely think that their brand is so exclusive and special, wait, one more time..


This shall serve as a reminder to the tactless blogshop owners =D It's okay, don't need to thank me.

Just remember, when you think "Oh, my blogshop is the most special, i'm gonna go approach some bloggers to see if they'd agree with me and suck it up to my request for them to blog for free. I'd just give them one or two pieces of my ultimate chio and unique outfits for them to camwhore in" when you think like that..

THEN YOU FUCKING COME BACK AND READ MY BLOG, YOU GIVE MY BLOG ONE HIT, I GIVE YOU AN IMPORTANT REMINDER.

That's a good deal.

One outfit for my $300 post with my TRUE OPINIONS, is not a good deal.

Small time, medium time, big time bloggers, c'mon leh, don't spoil market. Lol. One outfit and you're a a sellout?! Think about it, your readership for a base cost of $10-$15 each item?!

Then you have to makeup and take pictures! Photoshop also is an effort please??? And then you have to pen down your TRUE OPINIONS about it leh?! ALL IS WORK WORK WORK. Don't do it for free unless it's a great deal that you need! Think about it!

Don't spoil the blogshop owners. Cox when you do, they think i'd pamper them too, and then in the end they get shit from me, and everybody is not happy. Lol.

And for all fellow bloggers who gets the same shit and feel equally insulted, i give you free rights to attach this picture to the ridiculous blogshop owners, as a short and sweet reply =D

And u know what ? you are famous because of your boobs job, n you are so proud of it. what a disgrace seriously.

Anonymous: WAH -1 reader. Qiuting will be SO sad. Oh wait, you may hate her but you're still gonna come back and read right? That's because she's interesting. The boob job made more people wonder who she is, but they continued to come back for a reason. "And you know what?" - you'll come back to this blog the same way they do too.

thatsilvergirl said...

Anonymouses>> Guys~ You people obviously don't know Qiu enough.

You have NO IDEA how annoying it is when people try to up-play their business and make you do a lot of work. Blogging takes time and effort, and if you decide that you want exposure on OUR blog, then up-play us instead. That's how business is done. Try taking that email to Mediacorp Advertising.

Plus, Qiu was being real, and unless you guys want to read sugar-coated blogpostings, which are easily available on google and written by try-too-hard-to-please-everyone bloggers, Welcome to Bongqiuqiu. ;)

Damn I miss bitchy rantings myself!!!

I understand that it can be really annoying to receive all those insignificant offers from arrogant blogshop owners. However, you did reacted too strongly this time around? I guess it was your tone that made you come out a little too aggressive/ proud to the anonymouses.

Having said that, I still enjoy your posts so please cheer up!

Anonymous said...

support you! because 5 - 10% is really not a lot. ambassador should be paid for like every event, not based on your results. its like precisely because you are famous thats why they look for you! if not, how did they find you right?

so they should be happy if u take their offer then the other way round!

even if the email did come across as an insult to you or other bloggers. there are definitely more tactful and professional ways of blogging about it. afterall the person didnt sound mean nor offensive in the email. and you? you sound really childish and bitchy in this post.

Anonymous said...

the way you do this blogpost is like how xx criticize those interviewers in one of her recent blogpost. A little too much of a coincidence? uhoh And i think you're over-reacting right? IF you think that the blogshop is actually insulting you, just ignore them, easy as abc, simple as 123. Why spend such a long time scolding them, wasting your time and effort, "dedicating" a blogspot specially for them? not worth the effort, not worth the effort, not worth the effort qq.

LOOKING AT YOUR BLOG POST, YOU ARE LOOKING TOO HIGH ON YOURSELF.

REFLECT LA.
NOT ALL BLOGGERS LIKE YOU.


THERE ARE DEFINITELY SOME OTHER BLOGGERS WHO ARE WAY BETTER THAN YOURS. OH SORRY, CORRECTION. YOU CAN'T EVEN BE COMPARED TO THEM PLEASE.


EVEN THOSE BLOGGERS PISSED OFF BY ANY BLOGSHOP OWNERS THEY WILL JUST REJECT THEM AND LET IT GO CAUSE WILL IT AFFECT YOU THAT MUCH?

Well done! How would my attack on SHAMELESS blogshop owners drive me more traffic, honestly? It's not like i open lash on some bloggers.

Why? Guilty? Or it's a fact that YOU LOVE TO READ BITCHY STUFF?

If not then why you all think this post will drive me more traffic? It wouldn't if you DON'T LOVE IT.

So look at this. You knew readers will love to read bitchy stuff, that's why you put in so much effort dedicating a blog post specially for blogshops. oh god. that's your motive.

Can you see where I am coming from? Or are you too noob to even understand what I'm talking??

I admit I read your blog sometimes, and it wasn't even interesting enough, that could be a reason why you think so hard to come out with this post (to at least make it abit interesting huh?) else your blog will dead soon, is it?

Keep up the good work, then. -.-
Try harder next time, and it might work uh.. LMAO.

I was kind of shocked when I read this post because I think that you were too harsh which is unlike the normal you...

I understand how you feel but maybe some of the blogshops are just ignorant about the rates for adverts? Though some might be true that they think highly of themselves.

But you are sort of mean which you can be actually straightforward without being mean.

I think this caused a bad impression on you...

Huh? Brain cells? I don't think u have any actually.

Blogshop owners are just trying their ways to market their blogshops.. N just an email from them asking u for a favour wouldn't kill u isn't it?

Frankly speaking, u really tried too much to act like xiaxue. But u are different from her. U know why? Go to the streets and asked anyone if they know xiaxue, they will nod their heads. For u? Try harder.. U are still not that famous yet to react this way.

I only happened to stumble upon ur blog cos my fren asked me to check out this bitch's blog. Oops. So u are actually famous.. But sadly, for the wrong reasons.

Attention whore.. Please stop acting like u r damn famous and be so arrogant abt it!

And also, can you don't be such a copycat to blog like xiaxue can? Have your own style lah, bitch.

Well this is entertaining I must say..people always love bitchy reads. I find your bitchy posts more interesting than the usual somehow.

I know where people are coming from though..maybe we aren't bloggers that's why we don't understand.

IMO, the email definitely shows that the entrepreneur wannabe is genuinely ignorant and fresh in this business, like any other young teenage girl trying to earn some extra cash without knowing what she is in for. They are not outwardly tactless or shameless, just immature and inexperienced.

Hey people.. This is QIUTING's BLOG okay? Why can't she write anything she want to? Why are you guys putting her down?

Anonymous said...

Supply and Demand. I am a blogshop owner and there was this blogger whom I paid $200 cash and 1 item. She only give me a small until most people will missed credit right at the end of her blog post. That's a short change! She only post pictures of herself modeling for blogshops and dedicated posts for them. Cos they pay her more?

QQ at least take the effort to dedicate a blog post, put on makeup, wear the clothes, take pics and of cos, photoshop to make the pics look nice so more people will visit the blogshops.

Most blogshop owners are young kids. They are just not tactful enough especially with writing. Too much sms, forgot how to write properly.

dblchin (double chin) said...

hiyo! y people want to b so negative about this? Is true that some blogshops are just out to bully.

I got approached once by a blogshop owner sponsoring me 2 outfits in exchange for a blogpost. I did for them because firstly I wanted exposure and of course to showcase their outfits. But after putting so much effort publishing my entry, they cme and tell me that my pic quality are not what they've expected. WTF? I mean what kind of quality they expect? If they want excellent quality they should jolly well engaged models and a photography studio or whatever shit that is relevant.

I'm just a blogger that blogs what I love.
Yes and these are indeed the internet bullies.

So anonymous imbeciles, dun pass judgment unless u've been there urself.

Rachel said...

From a reader point of view, it seems that qiuqiu might overeacted. But have you thought of what qiuqiu had face from all these blogshops? I'm sure there are many more and this is just too much so she has to get it off her chest. It must had bottled out for a period of time since being a follower of her twitter, she mention ab it b4. So stop judging her based on this post. You guys don't know the shit that she been through. For the love of God, shut up.

Anonymous said...

Ignore those comment qiu! All those people who made negative comments, have you put yourself in qiu's shoes and think? With all those work done and she's being expected for more and not getting appreciated for it?!!?!?!?

Yes, it might seems as a pretty easy job for her. But it consumes time. Dress up, makeup, take picture, load picture into computer, photoshop, upload to blogger and use brain cells to come with something to type. And give blogshop owners traffic and business!


THINK.
Would you, a famous blogger take time out for that? I am not asking those students who has nothing to do and sit all home all day. of course you would want THAT deal. (ps, sitting at home all day also means you dont have a social life like qiuting has.)

Yes, I know she might sound harsh. But dont making all these negative comments, makes you sound HARSH to her too? She sound harsh because she had enough of not being appreciated enough.

We all are humans, so peace out. Everyone makes mistakes and have their days. If we cant even have a channel to expression ourselves, then what are blogs for?

Rebekah said...

Hey Qiuqiu , cheer up and don't bother about the comments of those Anonymous . Guess they've practically nothing to do .

I agree with what you've posted . Some blogshops are really too much . They think about how good their products is , how ' high quality ' their products is and it should be worthy of just paying a small sum and giving you a few pieces of clothings when it isn't even worthy of a post .

Anonymous said...

All now your readers come defend for you. Lol. I would suggest you just shut the fuck up and stop helping her defend. Cause she doesnt even bother, so why should you? You are just being extra here!

And anyway, if it's the blogshop owner's fault or they think too highly on themselves, so why i can't see that they are looking highly on themselves in the email they sent to her?

They are just stating that to be their ambassador, you have to do these things. And i believe they dont only send to you.

And most importantly, you can just reject by saying no or whatever and they didnt even reply you in a harsh way or whatsnot.

I believe they are looking for ambassador and they want to know who is interested thats why they send to alot of bloggers and hoping one would be interested and get back to them. Okay maybe not you but you shouldnt be this harsh and post it up like a bitch whining. Zzz. Or maybe you are one?

Or if you care so much, just remove your email on your blog and no such irritating email already.


But i believe you wont take it down. You know why? Cause you want some people who are big to email you like those boobs job sponsor lmao.

Seriously, you look too high on yourself. You are nt even pretty. At least xiaxue got the look and figure. You? Go jump down from your building might be better.

What famous blogger? Are you refering to her?
Omg. She isnt even very famous to do such thing.

What i call famous blogger is like xiaxue or dawn yang.

I am really surprised to read the recent entry of yours! You could say things like, 'readers dont know about you and say such things' and stuff but precisely why we follow your blogs with interesting entries only to read the recent one giving out a harsh impression, thus feel its not like you to make a post this way.

Im kinda seeing it very similar to XX's way of posting out emails she got and highlighting humorous statements in it. Whilst it works for her and her character, doesnt seem to work for you. Its just an opinion, you can say it doesnt make an impact or whatsoever, but maybe the more happy cheery ones were more suited for you :(

i thought you mentioned before that you wont SWEAR in front of ur readers? haha trying to be like xx now ah? just cos you are a fan of her. lol have some originality pls-.- you may ignore this la but most anons will agree. i used to be ur reader, but not anymore! and cox does not = because. it sounds like cocks. -____-

I bet even Sophie doesnt like you, have u read her post about bloggers putting up a sponsor corner on their blog? Yes she's talking about u .

PasserBy said...

The post is a bit uncalled for. As the previous Anonymous have said, the Eyleen girl wasn't being impolite at all, she merely delivered the message that was instructed to her. How could you reply like such? Moreover, if you really wanna mask away the blogshop name, you would have done so, but you know that living the "MOST OBVIOUS" trace behind, people would know exactly which blogshop you're talking about.

You were once noticed because of your daring blogpost about the boob job and subsequently, you're offered to the the budget barbie. Don't think of yourself so highly until you forgot who you were before.

Ask yourself seriously, is there a need to do so? Remember girl, 风水轮流转!!! There's always and ups and downs in life. Today you're famous, tomorrow you might not be. So, don't insult anybody, especially if they meant no harm. Xiaxue has the confidence to do so cause she has like 40.000 traffic per day. If you don't have your budget barbie show, do you think you can drive so much traffic to your blog?

What comes around does go around. Just don't go around and 得罪 others then good things may come your way.

Just my 2 cents of thought.

On my blog I too have my email on the sidebar - so... I am also talking about myself? I said specifically that I was talking about NEW bloggers, especially people who used to look down on bloggers before, suddenly now asking for blog advertorials.

To all you anonymouses, are ANY of you bloggers that know the bullshit blogshop owners like to pull? You tell me they don't know what the going rate for adverts are? AS IF. Because no blogger out there is going to be an ambassador for you in exchange for one item and a 5% discount.

People have to stop this stupid mentality that bitching/complaining/vulgarities are Xiaxue's trademark, and that if ever some blogger is pissed about something (wah cause they are not normal people that get pissed), they are "copying Xiaxue".

- also, how bloody many ways are there to highlight things in an email? Can YOU come up with a different way? No you can't, but instead of just shutting the fuck up you pull this "creative" line of -> Omg Qiuting is copying Xiaxue!

there, you have again misued the word shameless. if the blog owner was shameless, then you seeking for different kinds of sponsorships could be called the same, no? so you think u deserve a post like this from the sponsors as well?

my guy friends refer you as the woman who is horribly skinny. my girl friends who have read your blog (only after i asked them to) think you are horribly thick-skinned and act like a "siao char bor". if you dont even have a decent personality, i really pity you.

I read most of the blogs. Like recent happening things happened between shiberty and dowager. Why the both of them also being bitchy but why NO ONE SAID THEY COPY XIAXUE????

COME ON. USE YOUR BRAIN.

EVEN THE TOPIC ON WHY SHE GOT PISSED HAVE TO BE SIMILAR AS XIAXUE'S POST? SERIOUSLY.

Xiaxue's post didn't even cause so many hatred between the readers. So why yours? Xiaxue made every sense on what she wrote. But yours? Doesn't make sense at all and still have the cheek to say we anons don't make sense.

Please la, I read the email again and again, but I can't see why you can get pissed by Eyleen girl. Use a more convincing email next time please??

She wasn't even being rude or scolding you or whatsoever. Are you dumb until that you treat that as people scolding you? SO DO YOU, SOPHIE???

SOPHIE, "are ANY of you bloggers that know the bullshit blogshop owners like to pull? "

COME ON, YOU ALSO LIKE THOSE BLOGSHOP OWNERS DON'T YOU? YOU LIKE THEIR MONEY, YOU LIKE THOSE FREE MONEY FROM THEM. ZZZzzZ.

You want to help her, cause she made you abit famous through her blog? You are not her dog man! Why must you do this then?

Hi, when I first read your post- I didn't comment but then seeing that there are a lot of comments- well I think I'll join the bandwagon.
Actually, ur post kinda reminded me of XX's post about people trying to interview her though you have different topics-it seems like you took a page of her book-her bitchy book. I liked u because I thought u were nice and easy going but then I was shocked to somehow read this entry. True, this can be a bit insulting to your part and you have every right to blog about anything because this is your blog but then your entry can both be BAD and GOOD. Good-no cheap advertisers will bother you and BAD- you can probably lose potential advertisers(Remember: Big Brands also started from scratch so they ) and it's a stab at your CREDIBILITY as an endorser. if I were the consumer knowing that this particular brand gives you THAT amount or THAT number of pieces every month- I can hypothesize that you are actually BIAS in your choices for it kinda implies that u value what you get more (MONEY over QUALITY)than what consumers are paying for.

Just a thought.

I was referring to the boob job post that was posted longggg ago. The one that made to Singapore seen and WanBao (if i'm not mistaken) asking for a boob job sponsor.

Anonymous said...

not that i'm siding her, but she is probably pissed because the blogshop owner asked qq to advertise for them, in which the rewards does not benefit qq much, but made it sound as if it's qq's honor to be offered the role as their 'ambassador'. i think that makes sense, as it would make me(a normal person, non blogger) pissed too, when someone asking for a favor from me, tries to sound as if it's my honor to help them, when in the first place i'm not obliged too. true, the eelyn was not rude, but neither did she sound like she was begging (which she should, because she is asking for a BIG favor considering how lousy the benefits of the deal was) her for it. i'm sure if eelyn sounded like she was begging qq to be the ambassador, qq wouldn't be so pissed. she should at least sound more modest and humble.

like say, someone asks you to lend them money and they weren't rude but didn't sound humble either like 'hey i'm giving you a chance to lend me money and i will give you 0.001% interest. looking forward to dealing with you' - im sure anyone (whom has enough money, in which 0.001% interest would mean NOTHING to you) would get pissed in the sense that
1. why bother me with things i'm not interested in, like when the perks provided does not really make a difference to me?

2. why make it sound as if it's my honor to work with you and you are the one who call shots?

if the borrower said 'hey sorry to disturb you but could you please lend me money as i am in dire straits blah blah..' - you would only reject the bugger but not feel he is insulting your worth.

just a thought that came to my mind though. still will browse through ur blog =]

Anonymous said...

it is fine to reject the offer if it doesn't meet your expectation but the blog owner has been polite throughout the conversation?! well perhaps you can just state your advertorial rates clearly in your side bar so that all blog owners will know how much you think you are worth and what price to quote so that you will not feel
"insulted" since you still get pissed when they email you politely. no one can read your mind so maybe you can just be direct abt how much you are charging.

Different bloggers accept different kinds of advertorial for various reasons. sometimes it is becos they are being paid well but sometimes it could be because they think the product is worth recommending and not so much abt the money. like xiaxue, she doesn't do shit advertorial and recommend only good products. your post just mk people think that even though the blogshop clothes are lousy you will still recommend if they pay you well. of course the choice is yours but if you think that you are a well known blogger you should know the basic of blogger ethics in the first place.

Love you qiuting!

Amanda said...

wow, really amazed this post generated so many comments.

I have a neutral stand regarding this post. Was quite shocked at how pissed qq was over a rather minor thing but then again, a blogger has her rights to say anything they want. It's just up to the readers whether they want to read so just leave her alone as she has already received so many negative comments. No one will feel good if their own opinions are being condemned by so many people.

But, just to add on, i feel that budget barbie could be further improved on. Enjoyed watching the first few episodes of budget barbie because you are very funny, very cheerful. Still remember the third episode where you use your fan and tried imitating some actions. Hope you continue to have new things in your episode.

Stay strong and all the best! Hope to see cheerful you again (:

Hiya Qiuqiu from socal! I'm a mildly recent reader(like a few months?)/first time poster to your blog.. I love reading your interesting posts & watching your Budget Barbie videos! But, seriously this post was awesome. More power to you girl! All these haters that are hating on what you said need to chill the fuck out, because everyone has emotions and they've obviously haven't dealt with shit like this in the business world. I'm glad to see that you're not a 2d person and that you really speak your mind :)
This post hit a soft spot for me, since a lot of web designers like myself get kicked in the butt by low-ballers trying to get a "better deal" on a design or coding. It's so shady, especially when you agree or set an amount to charge and they just insult you by like saying "oh, do it for free and you can just add it to your portfolio and gain more business in the future." NO freakin` way, man! People need to gtfo their high horses and treat others with respect. Nothing in this world is free, and you're a better woman than I to be so polite to the blogshops that disrespected you.
Hope you get better sponsors, QQ! :) & Keep on bloggin`! I look forward to your posts :D

well, i read the comments and i have no idea why everyone is getting angsty.

i just feel that you guys are here to read someone else's blog so just read with an open mind and what they think is seriously just their opinions so dont need to get so angry over something that is not going to change or affect your life.


the whole situation is pretty funny.

Anonymous said...

Funny how your readers defend for you. I think your readers are as stupid as you. As no brain as you. Lols. No wonder. Like blogger, like readers.

Those who are defending for her should really stop becaise the more you defend, the more you make it shows that she is greedy, look highly on herself, do advertorials just for the sake of doing because of the money.

Many bloggers do adverts because they think the products are good, and they want to share with their readers. But for her, she wants to do advertorials for money. The more you pay her, she will so it for you, no matter how bad your products are. Come on readers, do you want to get cheated or scammed just because she write an advertorial so she can get more money???

For me, i wouldnt. I respect those bloggers like xiaxue zoeraymond who do advertorial for products they think is really good and they share with their readers which is a good thing. But ehat i see her, is just a money faced blogger who asked for money and sponsorship. Shameful.

To think that you are very famous, you can go around orchard road and ask how many people know you. Dont be suprosed by how little people who know you this little blogger in singapore. And please stop acting like xiaxue cause you are different from her. Do you think you can get as famous as her? Dream on. Stop dreaming actually.

What?! Anonymous, something wrong with ur brain or something? Why should blogshop owner beg her just because the benefits are not good enough. Are you kidding me? Why should people beg her? They pay for what she has to do for the blogshop. Just that the benefits are not gd enough in her eyes. SHE WANTS MORE. she is a greedy bitch.

Blogshop owners not human? They are making a living out there as well and not just bloggers okay. Wake up.

amazing. why did you choose to highlight an email that was so obviously written by a relatively inexperienced blogshop owner and purposefully blank out so little of her details that its damn easy for people to track her down?

yes, i do agree with most of the "haters" down here. its far too much of a coincidence that you write the SAME KIND OF POST as XX not long after she wrote hers. plus, she's a MEGA FAMOUS blogger. you are only so-so, can't even compare to her friend kaykay who also features on clicknetwork like you.

your budget barbie is disgusting. your singaporean accent is so pronounced, i guess maybe because the others featured like chick vs dick, numbnuts all speak better than YOU. and the stuff u pick? who except fashionably-challenged people will wear? total yucks!

i came to your stupid blog because my friend told me there's someone who's trying to leech off xx's fame and wrote a long bitchy uncalled for post. i suggest you REFLECT. and perhaps take more showers. being a girl and proudly proclaiming that you hate showers is simply disgusting.

there are two sides to this entry.

1. qiuqiu is honestly really pissed at these people and this is her blog and she can rant however she wants to.

Lol. You are really overestimating yourself. Maybe that is how much blogshop owners think you are worth.....? Do you even think they will give such stingy benefits to other more famous bloggers, who will obviously bring more hits to their shops?

I don't see a reason why you need to publish their email, and insult almost every single line of it. The email was politely drafted and written. The blogshop owners have done nothing wrong to deserve this nonsense from you. Techinically, they are YOUR clients. This whole advertisment thing is like a business. They provide the terms and you do the post for them. If you are not happy with the terms, then just reject politely and move on. Such an insulting blogpost just shows how low class you are.

You probably just lost yourself tons of readers, and potential advertisment opportunities. Tell me you dont care because you have SO MANY HITS. Oh yeah pls rmb you are not Xiaxue and never will be. Stop dreaming.

nic said...

Hello Qiuqiu! ive never left comments on blogs but i was tempted to leave a comment after reading so many comments left here. You mentioned:

"One outfit for my $300 post with my TRUE OPINIONS, is not a good deal."

I dont think the blogshop owner mentioned that you only get 1 outfit? She said you get to keep the sponsor outfitSSS.

I guess they are just young kids starting up a business and therefore they can only pay in terms of clothings? While i agree that the owner might come across as rather direct/tactless, i think it was due to bad english rather than arrogance or malice on her part.

Furthermore, i think it might be good if you take this post down. By mentioning that TheBlogShop gives you 35 outfits a month and that you love them because they know how to do business, it actually makes your praises for them seem more for the money rather than how great their clothes really are.

The same goes for the other advertisements you do for Adonis and all. Its like "pay me enough and i will say youre awesome".
Not very good for these shops which have already benefited you so much in many ways.

Just my 2 cents worth la. Continue blogging though! I kinda like reading your blog when its less bitchy. If i want to read a bitchy and fun blog, id go to Xiaxue's =)

Sarah said...

Some of the people who posted negative comments are as brainless as their words imply. Noted I didn't use 'haters' as they may be only voicing out their views with regards to this particular post.

First of all, what's wrong with qiuqiu being more money-orientated when it comes to the selection of BLOGSHOP to be advertised on her OWN blog? To me, most apparel blogshops are pretty much homogenous. It's not as if _____ culture is an unique blogshop of which the products are "really good and beneficial" to the readers. WTF? It's just another blogshop around for God's sake. As for xx, she has mentioned before she seldom accept apparel blogshop advertorial request. So why compare xx to qiuqiu when u guys kp saying qiuqiu is in no way comparable to xx. So ironic. Making a fool out of yourselves.

Perhaps, if _____ culture would to say that the team would donate $1 for every apparel sold, qiuqiu might still consider the deal and not feel anywhere close to frustrated. And I really doubt some of your intelligence. I dont think she is really being anguish. Knowing her dramatic nature, she is just trying to create some form of entertainment with her "wah wah wah" and etc pointers.

And when did qiuqiu ever say she is as famous as xx? She simply sets her advertorial rate to be around $300 for that much of work. It's entirely up to her. Perhaps she has other commitments and therefore, she see the needs to increase the rate so as to avoid inflood of requests which she knows she can't handle. Whatever it is, it's entirely up to her to determine her advertorial rate and absolutely up to blogshop owners to justify what they are willing to pay qiuqiu. If u dun wanna pay that rate, just fuck off. Simple as 1+1

So what if qiuqiu hide the full particulars of the sender? Are u going to track the elieen girl down? Bo liao. Maybe she is smiling right now as qiuqiu's post has driven more traffic to that nothing-special blogshop.

Constie said...

Wow some people are so damn tactless. Want to work with you, still want to act like they so superior like that. If they are, why would they need an "ambassador"? From the email can already tell that person lowly educated one. English not good, at least find someone else to do spell check / grammar check la. 好歹是个 business proposal leh. *shake heads* I can really feel for you. Must be really irritating to receive this kind of email. If I'm you, I read the email like that with so many grammar mistakes, already turned off liao, no matter how good the "benefits" are.

Really.. What's there to show off if Singaporeans walk pass you and shout at you, "Eh that's the budget girl who's so greedy & such a wannabe!"

You wont like it right? Think about it. Hope you change and apologise, really. You hurt someone who just wants to earn some pocket money.

iamchibee said...

I have been a reader of your blog for quite some time now. I know that everyone of us has a right to express ourselves, even react negatively if that's how we feel, but I think this post went overboard.

Think about it.

The girl sent you a straightforward email. Yes, I know you have a right to educate her (as you have done sarcastically) in your reply, but writing this post (with what intention?) is quite uncalled for.

She may have insulted you with their offer (that does not pay enough for the kind of service you'll give) but I think she was respectful to you by the way she replied after you declined.

The way she replied was just the professional and courteous way to do it.

If it's not right for you, you can just decline. Realize that you have just dedicated a $300 post for bashing them.

At the end of the day, we appreciate your honesty but then again, there is responsibility in blogging. Libel is still libel, even when the accounts are true.

Be more positive and keep your head to the sunshine. More blessings will come your way. :)

Best of luck!

Shame on you. Do advertorial just for the sake of the money. $300 per post is just ridiculous (for a small blogger like you). I know it's totally up to you to decide how much you want to charge for advertorials but think of it again, you are not VERY famous to charge so much.

I am a blogger as well. I loves to blog and not a blogger asking for money. Think again.

I read comments of 5 anonymous readers, laughed, and skipped the rest. Other than the fact I really adore you, I've always been the 'stalker' of your blog cos I admire the way you speak your mind and the way you are not afraid to show the world who you are (despite knowing that there will be morons who will want to put you down). Stop replying distressed anonymous readers and continue to blog the way you like!

Amy said...

Who is "Sliver" (I suppose this Anonymous cannot even spell a colour properly? Oh! You are talking about SILVER?) And "Why are you fucking care?"????? LOL!!!!!

I guess what Silver's saying is that it's so easy to hide behind the keyboard and an "Anonymous" psedonym just to critisize other people without having a good look at oneself.

If you encourage, you leave your name. But if you discourage and bitch about other people, you can just hide because you are afraid people will know who you are? God...

Anyway, Silver and Qiuqiu are friends, and friends stand up for each other. These 2 girls don't judge each other, and are real. Why are you Anonymouses (Gosh I just have to dump the Anonymous commenters in one group) paradoxing yourselves by saying Qiu is bitchy?

Bravo to the Anonymouses who even understand what I'm talking about.

Anyway, Qiu, You always have people behind you. These are the people who will bring you further, and who will go further. People who are hasty to judge, be thankful for them, for they only make us stronger (or provide entertainment!)

Besides, who knows QQ was in a bad mood that day? And you guys say maybe that blogshop owner doesn't know her rate, but seriously I'm sure she has studied her blog's traffic and posts before approaching her.

My point is, I don't get you haters. You guys try so hard to make someone feel bad.

Cant you all sense she is trying to stay low now? Dont even dare to reply comments. Why? Scare later no business want to engage you? Be more arrogant!!! I saw your recent advertorials and youcharged $300 for that? Are you crazy or mentally disordered? Like you said, your traffic is not cheap, BUT it's not as expensive as such!! Look, after you blogged about last time police wear teh kor, your advertorials dropped drastically and i guess no one wants to engage you cause you look at yourself too high by charging so much. I believe xiaxue charge quite high also but why does she still have many advertorials but yours dropped so much?? I love to read other blogger's blog cause they introduce good thing to us by sharing on their blog. Your blog is just bullshit!

ForgetitQQ(3) said...

Hi QQ, I hope you don't mind me quoting here and there to express what I agree with. I'm sure you'll mind since you're so easily offended but fuck anyway.
"Supply and Demand. I am a blogshop owner and there was this blogger whom I paid $200 cash and 1 item. She only give me a small until most people will missed credit right at the end of her blog post. That's a short change! She only posts pictures of herself modelling for blogshops and dedicated posts for them. Cos they pay her more?

QQ at least take the effort to dedicate a blog post, put on makeup, wear the clothes, take pics and of cos, photoshop to make the pics look nice so more people will visit the blogshops.

Most blogshop owners are young kids. They are just not tactful enough especially with writing. Too much sms, forgot how to write properly."

Looks so freaking fake, put your name on next time.

"there, you have again misued the word shameless. if the blog owner was shameless, then you seeking for different kinds of sponsorships could be called the same, no? so you think u deserve a post like this from the sponsors as well?" she totally deserves a few posts like that. She's totally shameless for asking for boob job sponsers, people ask you to be their ambassadors in exhange for things, and you get advantages from each other. but you ask people for boob jobs for FREE?

ForgetitQQ(3) said...

"They are just stating that to be their ambassador, you have to do these things. And I believe they don’t only send to you."

I can't agree more. You're not all that special, they copy and paste the email to so many different bloggers and take the ones that are most beneficial to them, even if you wanted, they may not want you in the end when they have another blogger that can offer them so much more. So ya, stop thinking so highly of yourself. Very soon, you'll be the butt of everyone's jokes, so i think that's good for traffic but when people see you on the streets, good luck :)

"i used to be ur reader, but not anymore!" many people have become true to this statement and when we come back, we post hater comments because we feel that you're a total bitch and to make up for the blog traffic that we gave you, we post a hate comment.

@Sophie said...

"I bet even Sophie doesn’t like you, have u read her post about bloggers putting up a sponsor corner on their blog? Yes she's talking about u ." totally :) @ Sophie, who defines new? The readers, new is defined to us as newly popular and not how long you're been blogging, we don't fucking care.

@Sophie again, well, so what IF NO ONE wants to be an ambassador, doesn't give you the right to reply someone else like that. So what if you have the upper hand and people are offering you and requesting for favours, doesn't allow you to 狗眼看人底, you won't be high up there all the time, 一山还有一山高。Learning to be tactful is important, don't you think? Giving str8fwd answers are not always the best thing to do.

Right, copying her style of insulting people, copying the tone she uses, blogging about XX as if she's worshipping her is not copying, you are totally right.

Well, you can do the old fashioned highlight way :)

ForgetitQQ(3) said...

The Eyleen wasn't the slightest bit of rude to you, there you are taking offence at everything, even though there really is nothing. Just because you want to blog about something, you randomly find points to insult the email hoping that your readers will agree with you. The truth is, your readers have eyes too you know? Are you insulting their intelligence by assuming that they are unable to think for themselves and would agree with you?

You got readers because we thought you were nice, but after you awhile, everything changed 360 degrees, you insult this, you insult that, you put unglam pictures of people. Your sense of humour is much unappreciated.

failed fans said...

@ting, aren't you are a girl too? Anyway, we are not the blogshop owners, shallow of you to think that way :) Singapore actually encourages us to put forth our views anonymously since it will allow us to express what we truly believe in you know?

"but neither did she sound like she was begging (which she should, because she is asking for a BIG favor considering how lousy the benefits of the deal was) her for it." wow, so now your readers got the bitch character rubbed on them. Why should she be begging you? Do you really have to be so materialistic? Your time is cheap anyway, since you have no job (no opportunity cost), so instead of writing this rubbish post, you could work with her to an agreement. What did you exist for? Ads, since your post are NOT really about you anyway and you just advertise for the $, it’s really obvious that you don’t care what kind of products you are promoting, that makes you a really sucky blogger.

"Different bloggers accept different kinds of advertorial for various reasons. Sometimes it is becos they are being paid well but sometimes it could be because they think the product is worth recommending and not so much abt the money. Like xiaxue, she doesn't do shit advertorial and recommend only good products. Your post just mk people think that even though the blogshop clothes are lousy you will still recommend if they pay you well. of course the choice is yours but if you think that you are a well known blogger you should know the basic of blogger ethics in the first place." it doesn't matter to her, all she cares about is $.

If they think you are worth more, they will offer more.

"Furthermore, i think it might be good if you take this post down. By mentioning that TheBlogShop gives you 35 outfits a month and that you love them because they know how to do business, it actually makes your praises for them seem more for the money rather than how great their clothes really are.

The same goes for the other advertisements you do for Adonis and all. Its like "pay me enough and i will say youre awesome".
Not very good for these shops which have already benefited you so much in many ways." So true, so true.

It's like if a illegal drug/cigar advertiser pays you $xxxxx+, you will bow down and worship and then talk about it as though their products can give you a new life, and that smoking/getting fake high is good, cuz you do it also.

Ignore people who try to tell you how much to charge, it's your own right to set your own price. I don't think you're stupid enough to charge something that no one will pay.

HOWEVER, you did not state clearly anywhere in the blog(before this post) how much you charged. THIS is why people(or at least me) are finding you bitchy; supporters of THIS post, please use your brain and focus on the matter instead of the name issue.

It's like Merchant A selling a product.
Merchant A: I don't really know what I want(because he wants to maximize profits, obviously)... so just offer *smiles sweetly*
Person B: How about... $50?
Merchant A: LOLOLOLOL. RIDICULOUS OFFER. SOOOO RUDE FOR OFFERING THIS LOW*RAMBLES ON*

See how bad that looked? Either state somewhere how much you usually charge per advert CLEARLY(this is business, hello) OR be more understanding of people.

I'm NOT trying to stay low. I was in Hong Kong enjoying the magical experience and shopping like a queen AND YOU GUYS?! HERE, ANGRY, UNBALANCED. UNSATISFIED, NEEDY. Why are you guys like that?!

And the blogshop that sent me this email IS NOT NEW. They have been doing plenty of collections for a loooong time and they have advertised to a few bloggers before. SO GET YOUR FUCKING FACTS RIGHT before you keep saying OBVIOUSLY IT'S A NEW BLOGSHOP WHO'S NOT SURE NOT SURE NOT SURE.

Have you guys even consider the fact that this would piss me off so bad becox it's the 24987348957893475 times i receieved emails and request like that?!

And to those who ask if i would still behave like that when my blog was not this known, YES I WOULD. Becox the principle behind it is the same.

Nothing changed, except that more hits to my blog = it deserves to be paid more.

Don't be silly. They are like the beggers on the street of third world countries. Give one, you have to give many. Some of them even quoted that i helped whichever blogshop before, why can't i help them.

HOW GRATEFUL! I help them, they go spread the word, QIU QIU IS CHEAP! Correction, QIU QIU MIGHT DO IT FOR FREE!!! Go try your luck!

How can Jade be on a neutral stand when she judges QQ's haters? Hmm, words like "dumb", "how about using yours", "please make sense"..

Think u shouldn't be too arrogant on this post. Afterall though it's ur right to reject but it isn't nice to humiliate the blogshop in public. Just my honest opinion!

You haters are awfully bitchy.

If u are not happy with her, just boycott her blog. Then her blog traffic will decrease. As simple as that.

I used to love u, but after this blog post, it kinda change the impression you used to have on me.

You know what's the difference between you and xiaxue? She blogged and criticized for the right reason. Her blogging style is hilarious and eye catchy.

Yours? Let the rest answer this qn..

Im disappointed...

Wow , that was seriously bitchy.

You went on and on about how some blogshops are NOT special at all but come on, you're still doing advertorial for so many of them.

I would think it's pretty insulting for those blogshops that you have advertised for and yet, fall under the same category that you critcized.

Honestly, that girl from the email who sent you the offer wasn't impolite at all.v In fact, she was just asking if you are willing to join. Even when you replied to her sarcastically, she replied you politely. You didn't have to react in this harsh way. One thing you got right is that yes, this is your blog, and you have the rights to say what you want to say. But since you have such status of being well known, you should at least watch what you post on the web? That blogshop owner didn't do much to offend you on purpose besides the fact that you took it the wrong way?

Even if you are fed up of so many emails and offers, there is always the option of writing a polite but firm post/warning on your site rather than one with swear words/ sarcastic taglines in the print screens you took. All these are really unnecessary seeing the negative outcomes of it.

I think you were lazy and didn't read most of the comments or you have low mental capacity ):

man whatever. every one complains about other people being "bitches". when the fact is, they're either probably at it themselves or too wussy to man up & say something when their getting pushed around. please. take your anonymous grievances elsewhere.

- Oh no, sponsors pay me more because I have to put on make-up and take pictures and photoshop the pictures, write my honest opinion yadda yadda.

Srsly? Stop it. You sound like a greedy child. I read your blog because I thought you were different from the other bloggers and more like a big sister who lets you take a peek in her diary, but after reading this, you're just level xiaxue (and that's not positive). I know you admire her, but that doesn't mean you have to be a xx clone -_-

Or maybe you're not copying xx and you were bitchy, arrogant and greedy in the beginning already, but you've shown your real character just now.

Anonymous said...

Your trying to be like XX. But insults XX wrote are way better then you. The truth is, you are just a XX follower. Just like normal teenage girls that copy XX. And your post is very wordy. Kthxbye.

P.S. I totally agree what MOON said :)

Thanks for your generous 1 comment :), appreciate it, though I'm feeling quite generous today and feel like giving you 2 advices:

1.Please upgrade your mental capacity
2. Stop defending someone who is so obviously wrong :)

ironically, you sound like the rip off instead of the other way round, you must not do any real work if photoshopping is considered work to you. I mean are we exactly talking about someone of Herb Ritts caliber here? Really? Like really? Citing a passage would probably be considered no less than back breaking in your world. Come on now.

Maybe you look up to Xia Xue a little bit too much.. I like your blog, but this post was just over the top. You should be happy that there are people who want you to be their 'ambassador'! Bit more appreciation?

Anonymous said...

TO ALL HATERS,

SHUT UP, GROW UP, & MYOB.
If you don't like what you see, you always have an option to turn away. Don't tell me you haven't been mad at anyone before regardless what the reasons are. Each of us gets mad for different reasons, & Qiu Qiu have hers. Freedom of speech eh?

So back off.

WOOOOOW,
Im totally AMUSED by how much attention given by this post when its really erm.... really nothing much???

To state my fair opinions,i honestly think everyone is abit too hard on Qiu, even the nicest nicest people you meet have their flaws and darkest secrets. Perhaps that day was just one of those days when shes not on her best mood, very bitchy in fact though.. so? It's not like you & i aren't the same.

BUT,
One thing that marks the difference between us & Qiu is that she is POPULAR. So we can bitch whatever and however we want but not for Qiu.. Afterall the image she was going for, i believe, is a person sweet and cute, & we all loved her for that <3 She should have been more careful with what she intended to post. (Just imagine sweet little Taylor Swift bitching about someone, i'm sure that wouldn't fit her image as well.)

CHEERS ALL, EVERYONE PLEASE, JUST CHILL.

You’re acting like a big time blogger, who highly thinks that her blog is way too popular? eh...who are you again? oh just one of them..one of Xiaxue’s fan.

I personally think you were offered shamelessly cheap because the blogshop didn’t find you appealing and popular at all. Whom I think is trying so hard to whine over something you were not worth. 300$ what? Seriously? Just by given free clothes is enough to be grateful. And yet you expect to be paid like a pro.
The blogshop wasn’t special apparently the reason she was asking if you would like to join and interested in helping, but your greedy ass was hoping for a ka ching.

What were you offering beside camwhoring and a little too sweet in the beginning.?

Oh..YOUR BOOBS..fake boobs.great.

Anonymous said...

When did you become like this? I thought you have a book to record everydays' things to be grateful about? If you wish to be paid, perhaps you can try asking? Really this is uncalled for.. I hope you was just having a bad day..

Would like to thank the blogger for the heads up! It does seem like some blogshops think that they are LV or Armani or some big name brand. I'm starting a blogshop with a few friends and are not in touch with things like these. Rarely do bloggers speak up about such treatment too. Harsh as you sound, it is the truth about these blogshop sponsors.

Eh, assholes anonymous that insult qiuting. dont fucking bark like a dog if you don understand and what i see is that u r just like an idiot scolding

Anonymous said...

come on lah...these young blogshop owners expect everything on a silver plate or via sending a email with internet language and broken english,and I don't blame her for ranting,if everyone who curses is a bitch,why not just accept the way certain people express themselves? not everyone rants without cursing

Anonymous said...

you are such a bitch! you should go reflect on yourself. who do you think you are? and how much do you earn like seriously?

some of these blogshops earn much more than you! and what was wrong with the person's email? she was not even rude and just asking a favour. she may be new, but at least she tried.

don't try to kill other people's entrepreneurial spirit. even if they are not cut out to be, you have no right to criticize people like that.

get a life!
