It seems that another blogger got a bundle of Secret brand hosiery products to sample and write about. I wish that I could be that person. Free hosiery!! I could only dream. There are a couple of websites that are offering me a sample, so I would like to get in touch with them this month. We will see.
That being said, I do find it kind of sad that it seems easy for her to get that much support from the business community and the readers. I honestly wonder why that is.
I figure that she is good at making friends. It takes a lot to get people to participate in blogs.
Perhaps her topics are more relevant, so people are willing to participate. When we talk about hosiery, are we really talking about things that really matter to us? I think that deep down inside, we are not really all that concerned about hosiery on men and women. It is probably more along the lines of something that would be nice to have, but not something that we have to have. Even though I never insisted on it being something that we have to have, I might have lost sight of it, and it affected how I wrote about things, and whether or not I wrote about it.
Another thing that she seems to have done is to decorate the blog. There are images all over the place, which make it easier for people to find stuff and easier to enjoy the blog. I think that I need improvement there.
Another thing that I could do is focus more on men's hosiery. When was the last time I did that? I feel kind of guilty about it, but men's hosiery seems more expensive, and in some cases, it seems like a waste of money. Also, I feel that if I wear it, then I will feel kind of gay and effeminate. Just about every men's brand out there portrays hosiery as effeminate. ActivSkin shows a cartoonish guy reclining in a way that seems effeminate to me. With another brand, a guy is just sitting there in his hosiery reading a newspaper. He could be bothered to put a collared shirt on, but not put on a pair of shorts?? Possible. With another brand, a guy is reclining with a beautiful woman, who almost steals our attention with the beautiful hair, the beautiful jewelry. It is almost a guaranteed win. When we look at the guy, he seems to fit the pretty boy stereo type. I wonder if he is gay and effeminate. I should compare the men's underwear photos to the men's hosiery photos, and try figure out how one can be sold in department stores, and not the other. Maybe that is what I should write about.
What other things do you think that she did correctly?
Thank you for reading!
