I'm a Mother not a Martyr…

Over the weekend, I was involved in a twitter conversation with some beauty blogging chums about how brands interact with us.

The original question was; ‘does it matter if a brand does or doesn’t ReTweet your blog posts’.

To me, I like it if they do, and even better if they generate their own tweet, rather than just retweeting me.

I do have a business, so for me it’s all about exposure.  Much as I’d love to say that I write for myself and my readers, I do want as many people as possible to read what I write, so the more people out there touting my site, the better!

But during the conversation, I said how pleased I was that the beauty brand Filthy Gorgeous London (@FGLBeauty) had not only retweeted my original link, and created their own, but they’d also created a post on their own blog, saying how pleased they were that I’d included them in a series I was writing!

5 minutes later, at 8.45pm on a Saturday night, up pops @FGLBeauty to say thanks, and to join in the conversation!

That’s social media, getting it very very right in my eyes!
