5 Reasons Why You Will NOT See Nordstrom Sale Posts from Me
1 – I like to be different
I like to offer you original content, different from what you see everywhere else. Plain and simple. I’m not one to follow the crowd — in life in general or on the blog specifically.
Why would I want to do the same thing everyone else is doing?
2 – I’m not sure you need it
I get it… It’s a big deal, because new merchandise for the upcoming season is marked down. And there are a ton of items which are part of the sale.
But I’m not sure that you – my smart, intelligent readers – need me to help you shop a sale. Do you?!
And if you do need (or want) help shopping the sale, well, that leads me to reason number three…
3 – There are people who do it better than I would
How’s that for honesty? If you want to know everything about the Nordstrom sale, there are plenty of people who cover it. Heck – practically every style blogger covers the sale.
But specifically, there are a few people who do an outstanding job of providing standout content related to the big sale. So, if you’re wondering what to purchase from the Nordstrom sale, I’d suggest following along with Jennifer Lakeor Ashley Hargrove to name just a couple.
4 – I’m not passionate about promoting sales
Sure, I love a good sale. Who doesn’t?
But I am not passionate about sales or even shopping for that manner. Again, there are plenty of “shopping bloggers”, as I refer to them, who are in fact passionate about sharing sale details.
What am I passionate about? I enjoy the creative aspect of my job better than I like the sales aspect of what I do. I love crafting creative colorful content for my community! And I love empowering you all to live, think, and dress with more color. That is, I enjoy helping us all live our best lives.
5 – Encouraging excess consumerism isn’t necessarily my thing
Lastly, let me be frank: the level of consumption I observe by some during this sale saddens me. Guys – we do not need that much stuff! It is not going to fulfill you or make you happy.
Trust me on this! After having my house flood about four months ago, losing belongings and my home, I can confidently say that we do not need much.
And you certainly don’t need financial stress or even to go into financial debt to acquire things! So, think twice before you click “add to cart”. And be grateful what you have.
The Big Downside of Not Covering the Nordstrom Sale?
In life, decisions always have consequences, right? Those consequences can be both good and bad. It’s the same thing here. Choosing not to cover the sale has repercussions.
So, what’s the biggest downside to me not covering the Nordstrom sale? That’s easy…
A huge missed revenue opportunity
But that’s okay! I am fully okay with sacrificing the opportunity for “easy” money in order to stay true to myself and my brand.
Now, hopefully, I can count on you as my wonderfully loyal community to support my endeavors here in other ways… regularly reading the blog, clicking on links, liking and commenting on my Instagram photos, interacting with my Instagram stories, and exercising your purchasing power with companies who sponsor content here.
And the upside is immeasurable when it comes to staying true to myself. That, in the long run, is priceless.
I want to be clear… this post is not intended to bash anyone or speak negatively about bloggers who do choose to promote the Nordstrom sale. I’m simply sharing my rationale behind why I am not bombarding you with content related to the Nordstrom sale – and why I am completely content with my personal decision.
Thoughts? I am dying to hear from you! Let me know.
