Another week, another bad experience in Bloggerland for me anyway. Just when I thought I had seen it all, something comes up which makes me seriously wonder whether it’s just me who has to take all this in my stride.
An invitation came via email a week ago to attend the launch of a new brand. I accepted but today, the invitation was abruptly retracted because the person who invited just found out from her colleague that the brand had appointed an agency to invite bloggers and only bloggers on THEIR list would be invited.
I don’t know if this is adding more salt to the wound but I was sent information on the brand and products along with the email to retract the invitation and informed that I was welcome to visit the store the day after the media event when it’d be open to the public. I would love to give this brand coverage and introduce it to all of you but how would you feel if you were in my position?
Oh well, no doubt you will soon be reading about this new brand in more esteemed and privileged bloggers’ blogs. Try as I might, I doubt I will ever be on the “A” list. Maybe it’s really time to think about retiring this blog which doesn’t seem to get anyone’s attention.
Being disinvited is rather mortifying and embarrassing and I think it only happens to me.
