A recent comment in my latest post read “well it’s just your opinion.” It got me seriously thinking. Where have opinions gone on Kuwait blogs?
What we see today on Kuwait blogs are just a myriad of posts advertising new places to eat, the latest fashion (of course lady bloggers never show their face in the pics) and information about the latest cars. Would it be so hard to state your opinion about the product/place? Instead we get “yeah it was good” on every food post and then when I waste my time to go eat there, it turns out to be the same old bad tasting fast food shit.
People, give us your OPINION. Your REAL opinion. You don’t have to on a leash with these companies (although a lot of blogs are). Just tell us what you really think. I seriously want to know. I mean, that’s the whole essence of a blog. You may be thinking you don’t want to insult the restaurant or whatever, but how in the hell are they supposed to know if they need to change something to make it better if they don’t know that there’s something wrong?
An opinion is extremely strong. Use it.
Oh I got you BananQ8. I got you reallllll good.
I created a fake email and a made up story about how I want to advertise a new product I made called Felafel Peanut Butter and sent it out to multiple popular blogs on Kuwait. Here’s the story I wrote:
I’m interested in advertising on your blog. I know you get a lot of views and are known to be a well respected blogger who posts quality content. I have a new product I made called Felafel Peanut Butter!
You see, one day I was snacking on a yummy peanut butter sandwich when I just happened to have some freshly ordered felafel balls close by. I grabbed one of the balls and munched on it furiously, but something bad happened! The oily felafel crumbs fell all into my peanut butter sandwich directly below. At first I thought the sandwich was ruined because the crunchy crumbs of the felafel fell into it, but because I’m currently very obese and wouldn’t even let one of my children pass me by without attempting to eat them, I went ahead and took a bite out of that felafel stained peanut butter sandwich.
It was as if a thousand prayers had come true instantly. As my tongue twisted around the felafel peanut butter sandwich in my mouth, I felt a strange oozing around my crotch area. I knew that this was the best sandwich in the world and everyone in Kuwait has to know!
I spent several minutes perfecting my felafel sandwich spread. I grab two balls within the palm of my hand, tickle them a little bit with my finger tips, and then smash them up and throw them into a jar of peanut butter. Then I spice it up by adding a little bit of nemes (fyi that’s semen spelled backwards), a special spice handed down through generations within my family.
I have around 100 jars ready to sell and now I need to advertise to get the word out. I’ve created an ad that would fit perfectly in the ad spaces on your blog. Specifically the ad space on the right all the way to the top. I just need you to tell me your rate so that I can pay you and send you the ad to put on your great blog.
Thank you and eagerly awaiting your reply.
Now who would believe a story like that? BananaQ8 would. He actually thought I was serious. Here’s his reply email:
Hey, at least he’s a nice guy! He offered to give little old me a discount price hehe. ❤
Consider yourself trolled BananaQ8.
Now I sent the same email to Kuwaitiful and he caught that I was joking around and sent me this reply:
You’re too smart for me Kuwaitiful. But don’t think this gets you off the hook from being posted about on this blog! Your time will come soon enough.
