Hi there folks, better late than never for my followers that love Seminole Hard Rock, Tampa.
No Promotional Consideration for these Announcements
Again there has been no promotional consideration for these announcements (in other words I have gotten nothing what so ever for sharing this information with you, nor have I received anything for running the giveaways), so this series may come to an end soon, as I am getting too busy with projects that compensate me.
Never received promotional consideration, ever by them, why did I expect it would change?
Did you know that on my blog with Joan, at the old “Joan and Mariah’s Reviews” blog (which is closed now) that Joan and I posted Seminole Hard Rock events monthly? for over 2 years? Yup I’ve been with them, one way or another for about 3 years now. You know what I’ve gotten for my posts for them even when I posted for Joan at least 1/3 of the time? Nothing. Joan was fortunate she got compensated she’s received everything from tickets for a VIP only Event, Concert Tickets, a share in the prizes with the winners and even a free day and nights stay at Hard Rock.
Again me, what have I gotten for my help… nothing ever, I though I received a biodegradable shopping bag, but that was from my post for Mohegan Sun (casino, about 2 years ago) and so, that’s that… I never received a thing for all my helping them out in about 3 years.
NO Good Dead Goes Unpunished Folks!
Oh wait I received something from them, they keep track of the @SHRTampa that are tweeted and I got told I tweeted too much with my tweeting once every 4 hours about the giveaway and events… so I guess I got something. *shrug*
Things are changing here with June Events and this may be the last month of about 3 years of my working with Seminole Hard Rock, Tampa:
I will not be taken advantage of any further, I cannot afford to keep my blog going as it has not paid for itself in anyway at this point in time. So it’s time to start either getting paid for my work or compensated in one way or another and not spend hours on posts that do not have any promotional consideration for my time and effort. This post shall be as simple as simple comes… no more fussing to 2 to 3 hours per month on this post, I’m done with copying pasting pictures and optimizing them for the web, with rewriting what I received from Hard Rock, and rewriting the strange codes in their events announcements or bolding areas, adding subtitles, organizing the dates and info to make it easier to understand and I will no longer fuss with setting up links.
I will however take the few minutes to erase the almost 20 extra links at the end of the announcement they send me, as well as I will be deleting the one link that repeats with same link each and every event. All these links would ruin my SEO … heck the repeated one is over kill when it could be listed only once.
If you would like to continue seeing the Hard Rock Giveaways, you may always let them know, however I do not expect that they will wish to work with me again after I have openly voiced what I voiced in emails for months now, I have voiced that I do feel used and I now really feel that I have been taken advantage of, since they have been promising me compensation to keep my post going since March. I am patient, but perhaps too patient…
Okay rant mode off and Events listing on:
This month again it’s a surprise pack giveaway for you… enter to win something really cool from Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa!
