Hey, surprise, it’s me on a Friday!
So we were talking and thinking that Friday is our off day now, but I don’t really like having a day without a little something up. Now that I’m writing a ton of content for the store, I can’t really take on more, unless we just talk about hair or caftans or whatever other thing I’m puttering about with.
So anyone want to do a little writing about perfume or cosmetics or other things? We make about enough on advertising to keep the blog running, so we pay you in love!
if you’ve ever wanted to do a little writing, and most of you should, you leave wonderful comments, you have a point of view, drop us a note with a sample of a review you’ve done for either some other blog or site like Makeup Alley or Basenotes, Fragrantica, etc. We’ll hold your hand and help you through the first post.and probably even throw some of this cat-butt perfume your way as additional thanks. And since this is The Posse, we don’t care if you know everything about perfume or are a virtual newcomer, it is your unique voice and point of view that we want. We won’t hold you to any commitment. If after a post or two you find you just don’t have enough time or it’s too much stress or not enjoyable, you can gracefully exit with the thanks of a Grateful Posse.
You also don’t need to commit to every week, unless you want to. We are open to several writers who might rotate so it doesn’t become a job and suck the joy out of thinking about and wearing perfume. Now, I’m going to borrow here from my son’s instruction on how to write a quality review. Don’t ask, I’ve asked both of my sons numerous times to write about scent, and the closest I’ve gotten was a very weak “well, maybe” one time just to get me to shut up.
“A quality review should be a well written, descriptive, personal opinion. Please refrain from this “Tom Ford’s Amber Absolute is crap”. A quality review looks like: “Tom Ford’s Amber Absolute is a powerful amber perfume, its aroma is so fierce that I feel like I’ve been punched in the nose. The smell is penetrating, it’s like putting a beehive on my head”.
So you wanna? Of course you do, you know it, just say yes, it will be fun
