Six Weeks, Six Responses


As you are probably aware by now, I am going to the Bahamas FOR FREE as a member of the media for this Plucky in Love Blog. You can read allllll about it here. Today kicks off a 6 weeks countdown of sorts (ONLY SIX WEEKS?!) until we head out for the wild blue yonder. Today, I'm sharing Six Responses I've heard to this news that I have a "free" stay in the Bahamas.

When I say, "Hey! Guess what?! I'm heading to the Bahamas for free to report on my stay as a member of the media for my blog!" What I hear is...

6. Seriously? Are you sure it's not a scam??

Concerned citizens, I have email confirmation and I've spoken to the property manager on the phone and the resort is well-rated and reviewed. I guess I can't be 100% sure til I get there, though. Great.

5. Cool! Is it all-inclusive? No? Huh.

I knowwwwwww. It suckkkkkks. EXCEPT THAT I'M STAYING IN THE BAHAMAS FOR FREE.

4. But.... you still have to pay for flights and stuff? That's not really "free," is it?

Thank you for pointing that out. I probably shouldn't go after all...

3. I looked up the place and they have great ratings on Trip Advisor!

YES! That's what I'm talking about! Your enthusiasm is much appreciated!

2. I mean, you got a free stay -- don't you think you should be able to get free flights??

I'm not a miracle worker, people! Besides, none of the airlines got back to me.


1. TEACH ME YOUR WAYS.

Gladly!! Here's a little guide that explains how I -- a blogger with less than 100 Bloglovin followers and less than 500 Instagram followers and NO blog Facebook page -- worked my magic.

  2. You got a free hotel stay so ignore the haters lol.

    I never realized you don't have a Facebook page for your blog. I was actually thinking of getting rid of mine. I get no traffic & Instagram and Twitter are more fun anyway. What are your thoughts on this?

    1. I am definitely no expert, but I think you should do what makes the most sense for you! If Facebook doesn't have much return on investment and you don't enjoy using it, I'd say ditch it. It's better to have fewer channels that are highly engaged than all the channels with little engagement, IMO.
