    Too many lazy PRs these days. They don't even bother actually reading the blogs of the bloggers they invite, something that's very basic and something they would do if they actually cared about the brand they're handling.

    Speaking from a client POV, I'm often called naman as “mommy” even though I don't have kids. It probably comes with the territory since I talk with a lot of mommy bloggers. No biggie, though. 🙂 Good, sensible post. Thanks!

    Haha, my problem is namimilit sila na mag-feature ako about diapers when I have nothing to practice on. Haha. Frustrated auntie, though, because I've been wanting a niece/nephew for quite sometime now. 🙂

    So true! Hindi naman puwedeng one size fits all. Research is such a basic exercise when we were all in school.

    I like that photo too. It's one of the best lectures I've given as a professor. Tinakas ko APC students ko and brought them to UP Sunken Garden.

    Hahaha, apir! Di naman tayo nag-iisa. None of my siblings din (pati parents ko) nagde-deo.

    Very well said (clap*clap*). I like the 2nd to the last paragraph most, I can relate so much. PR should read blogs to know more about the people they want to work with.

    Definitely! Sometimes I wonder if some of them should go back to school and learn how to write letters, especially canned ones. It's really so annoying to receive one that's addressed to a Mr. Santos.

    And I don't know where the heck people get off belittling bloggers when many of us get more coverage. It's not like it's our job, too.
