The Muddy Mantra
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Hero's Blog features here.
Bonkers times here at Muddy Stilettos that I want to fill you in on.
I’m in the middle of redesigning the blog (hurrah!), so that it’s slicker and better to navigate, but still quirky, funny and packed with the unmissable Muddy mix of events, cool products, recipes and snippets of my pathetic life.
There’ll also be advertising on the site (fear not, no A1 Plumbers or A2B taxis. Stylish brands – get in touch!) with a view to making Muddy Stilettos a more permanent part of my working day.
With all this in the offing, I thought I’d take the opportunity now to reiterate how I run Muddy Stilettos and what you can expect when my splendiferous little posts pop into your in-box.
1. I try everything out myself so that you can fully trust my opinions. On the occasions that I haven’t been somewhere myself (for example, an event that hasn’t happened yet – I’m not a miracle worker) I let you know about it.
2. I don’t write advertorial. This means I will never accept payment to write about something I don’t believe in.
3. I accept tickets to free shows, festivals, restaurants, events etc with the purpose of reviewing or publicising them for Muddy Stilettos, as I’m sure you appreciate it’s pretty expensive zipping around trying stuff out all the time. Hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars – if you want me to try you out, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or via twitter @muddystiletto.
4. I’ll never write a bad review. I’m not into trashing people, brands or companies. But if you’re not good enough, I won’t write about you in Muddy Stilettos, regardless of whether I have paid for the experience or not. This gives me the editorial control I need and the trust that my readers demand.
That’s it. Readers, I hope you’re feeling the love! I know I am but right now but Holby City on Sky+ is beckoning. Luke *sigh* is my new crush. Even his peeping bald spot can’t spoil the magic.
Back to business tomorrow x
