Join Chel, Fiddy, Snow, and Tracy as we #realtalk about blogging economics including paid posts (spoiler alert: we don’t do them), sponsorship and press samples, affiliate links, and why we blog.
I know you ladies aren’t about the mad cash but what about creating other avenues of revenue like merchandise? *cough IneedSnailSquadswag cough*. This way instead of accepting patronage this will still provide your fans ways to support yourselves and your blogs without having to go through aff links.
But seriously. I need swag to rep!

We are doing a giveaway of some Snailcast vinyl stickers next ep!

Stickers! Cool. I need one for each mirror, my computer, and four (one for each of you) for my car. That’s, um, 15.
I honestly don’t understand why people get so upset about ads/affiliate links/any type of revenue for bloggers. I feel like as long as they’re being honest about the things they’re reviewing, what’s the big deal? One thing though- I’m totally on board for using affiliate links, but I’m in Canada so it would be great if there was links for Amazon.ca as well for the Canadians.
I am absolutely loving these podcasts. I LOL’ed (literally) when you guys went into ‘topping’ that was awesome. After the first cast I heard I’m going through the backlog of casts and each of the blogs. Thank you all so much for your reviews and hilarity. I so needed that today. I’ve started my own kbeauty routine based on all your blogs.
You girls have been doing amazing job and have been amazing help. With not just your posts but also all the question answering . All of this take lots of time …and as we know – time is money. You guys save us time and money by helping to source out right products, right ingredients, right shades. I wish you could make tons of money from all your work and blogging, you totally deserve it!
You are blogging with lots of honesty and openness, thank you. Keep up the good work!
