We get it, bloggers wanted to make money out of their blog and their writing. Isn’t that what a lot of people want to do? But somewhere along the way companies took note. Saw how many followers, subscribers and likers people had, and started offering free goods in turn for good reviews. Companies wanted bloggers to flog their shit to their followers so they could get money.
But just as they were now acquiring bloggers to do the free work that celebrities had demanded payment for, so now were the bloggers. If you want their review, you’re gonna have to pay for them to flog your shit.
Hence, the rise of the Floggers began.
Floggers, I cannot stand.
I’m all for reading a blogger’s post about the great bargains they found at their local Kmart, or the awesome shoes they bought last Friday. But I am over seeing those hateful hashtags and words in their posts, regardless of what platform those posts are on.

I am so god damn sick and tired of seeing the free wardrobes, free accessories, free every fucking thing that these imbecilic pissants are getting to flog to their followers.
Does it work business wise? More than likely. And I know many companies have seen a massive increase in sales.
Does it work on me?
Once I realised that a certain shoe company was giving more than one blogger a pair of free shoes, I got cranky. I sure as fuck can’t afford to spend $250 on shoes every fucking day. I refuse to spend $129 on a pair of faded ripped jeans because they are flogged by bloggers. I refuse to buy anything at full price when it’s over $25 unless I desperately want it.
I’m not a scab, I just know how to get better deals because I know the tricks of the trade. Jeans do NOT cost $129, it’s only cotton, and when shows do exposés on companies and their products, and which products are better, and the cheaper chain stores always win out, then I ain’t buying your $129 shit flogged by bloggers, or instagrammers, or facebookers.
I’m over the bullshit, the inconsistencies, the lies. Everything you have is sponsored by these companies wanting to make more money. You are being used as their cash cows, and your followers are being used as sheep by you.
Well, not this little black duck! (to quote daffy duck) I am not a sheep and will not follow blindly just because something may perk my attention.
I refuse to buy from stores anymore that use bloggers to flog their shit.
I refuse to pay full price for what you’ve got.
I refuse to follow bloggers and pissant reality contestants who think they’re celebrities and get entire holiday wardrobes for free.
I refuse to flow with the masses.
I refuse your bullshit ways.
I refuse to follow floggers!
Floggers must fall!
what I asked, ignoring me for days on end, leaving one of my websites down for
a week and expecting Google to fix it because I’d added their G Suite records to
the domain. As I said to them, fixing my website was not GOOGLE’S JOB. The bitch
still left it down then allowed it to expire even though I had renewed it two
about a month ago now, I decided enough was enough and I went looking for a
forum called Whirlpool where I found countless threads about changing hosts and
which one was best. One kept coming up time and time again so I checked them,
as well as three others. I also asked everyone on a Facebook author page I
are active on their Facebook page.
night I went ahead and signed up to the new company after countless emails back
but I know it will be worth it in the end.
not perfect after all and I had to cancel it and buy another package.
had to get my old company to update one. That took over a day. I had to spam
them on other things to get them done.
done in one day except for two domains.
Wednesday night it was done and worked.
it. But finally, it was all fixed again and I hope it stays that way.
that I can’t get registrant approval on. It’s going to email@example.com,
supposedly it’s the secret version of my email, but nothing is coming to me at
this time, so I have no idea how long it will take or what will happen when I
leave my old hosting company. I’m due to renew my hosting with them on the 17th
but I won’t be.
fast enough due to the fact I dealt with way too many people and it wasn’t just
me they concentrated on at the time. That’s been the main issue. Too many cooks
in the kitchen. But I did manage to follow simple instructions on setting up three new wordpress websites, and getting a few other things done. Their dashboard is different to my old one but has the same areas.
a stupid head and chest cough and stuffed nose AGAIN, all because this has been
dragged out firstly, by the old company, and now by the new one.
plenty of time to do it, or know what you’re doing.
in that my gorgeously gorgeous ex-husband, Michael Weatherly, was leaving NCIS
at the end of the season.
is an unlucky number, either way it tweaked my heart and I felt sadness.
will always be grateful. Hopefully, in the next few years, he will also provide
inspo for a prequel and sequel to my novel, The Road To Vegas, so I wish him
all the best.
boy, does Mark Harmon look different! Either Gibbs is looking mighty old all of
a sudden, or Mark has had something done.
but did I miss the time jump between Gibbs’s surgery and him being back at work
looking like he had a speak impediment and that there was nothing wrong with
his shot-up knee?
watching once Michael leaves. After all, he’s the only reason I watched it in
the first place.
celebrities all die from cancer or something else within two months. Jesus H. Christ! David
Bowie, Alan Rickman, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion’s husband and brother, the list goes on.
diseases like us, it just happens that because they are famous we hear about
their deaths. We didn’t hear about the other millions of deaths from cancer did
we? No, just because those people aren’t famous. So it always seems to be a shock when we hear of so many deaths in only two months.
ambushed with show after show after show in the next few weeks as they all kick
in along with a bunch of series coming back with new seasons.
in Aus that debuted last November so we get to see Housewives of Jersey and BH
from the beginning. God, are they bitches! And a whole bunch of house
renovation shows which were interesting when there was nothing else on over
summer. Now, they’re just boring.
Celebrity Get Me out of Here followed by the new season of Modern Family and
look so much older. And has Gillian had botox or a brow lift cause her forehead
is much higher than it used to me. And she doesn’t smile. Too stiff! And David’s
too old! The story wasn’t overly scary, or maybe I’ve just moved on, but what annoyed me is it wasn’t continued into the second ep. Where did the UFO come from, who bought the girl off, why did they kill her?
The Bill from the very beginning but Murder She Wrote as well, which just
happens to be on a the same time as Diagnosis Murder on channel 11.
Got Talent followed by Farmer Wants A Wife and channel 10 had I’m a Celebrity,
X-Files and the new season of Elementary. While RHOJ was on 94. God Danielle is
the most narcissistic arrogant piece of shit bitch I’ve ever seen on TV!
hours of new Bones and the return of Motive. Channel 9 had new Big Bang and Grease
live and channel 10 had I’m a Celebrity followed by the return of NCIS and NCIS
LA. Channel 11 had the premiere of Angel from Hell and Channel 94 had the US
Jane was telling Maggie that our angels are here to help us and want nothing
but the best for us. It certainly doesn’t feel that way in my life right now,
but that’s another post. You can read all about it this post on my style blog – Jewel Divas Style
channel 9 showing more new Big Bang with local show The Embassy and the Sean
Penn El Chappo thing. And Channel 7 showing My Kitchen Rules.
current affair show Inside Story followed by Kings Cross ER, and 94 had RHBH followed
by Vanderpump Rules.
7’s Better Homes and Gardens and more My Kitchen rules.
year? I’m kinda sad at that. I worked hard to get 50 plus followers. Now I’ve
slid right back. Maybe it’s time to remove the google friend widget and just
let people follow me through their Blogger blog feed or Bloglovin’. I’m over
there and have added everyone I follow so if anyone’s on there as well, follow me there.
others are not only astoundingly stupid, but ironic, and the irony is, they
really don’t get they are also labelling themselves as the same thing.
label people who trolled others or who just generally left horrible comments
wherever they went.
someone doesn’t like, hence you get labelled. Now the irony is that the people
labelling you as a keyboard warrior are also on their keyboard replying to the
messages left and rudely labelling everyone they come across.
dobbing people in simply because they don’t like their comments. Or maybe
‘pathetic keyboard pissants’ for being the idiots ironically calling people out
from behind their own keyboard.
everyone and everything because they’re so freaking pathetic at life in
doctor, nurse, office, we need names and labels, what I’m sick of, is getting
every “bully shaming” label thrown around just to make the arsehole dobbers
feel better about themselves.
they are, crapping all over people.
tired of people on social media, and sadly, social media itself. It’s not the
fun place it used to be.
keyboard dobbers on the internets.
Hey all, I have decided to come back for another year, but it will only be on Fridays. This year I’m only blogging once a week and doing a weekly round-up/ wrap/review, not sure what to call it yet.
LJD’s WWW (weekly world wrap), or the week in review, or weekly wrap up, who knows but I have three more weeks to think about it as I’m starting on the 6th of Feb and will be talking about what went on in the world that week, whether it’s war, tv shows, movies or general bitching about shit.
See you all then.
