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?
Granted, this costs me money. I miss out on a lot of “easy” affiliate money because I refuse to post items to shop simply because they have mass appeal.
But, on the other hand, hopefully it gains me longterm trust and loyalty from you. You know when I post about something it’s authentic and something I truly believe in or like.
2 – I’m not sure you need it
I get it… The Nordstrom sale is a big deal; new merchandise for the upcoming season is marked down. And there are a ton of items which are part of the sale, including some good seasonal staples.
I’ve seen blog posts titled, “How to Shop the Nordstrom Sale” and so on and so forth. 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.
There are even 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 turning to another trusted source.
Or, if you really want my thoughts, feel free to direct message or email me.
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. And along the lines of living our best lives, I’m not sure excessive consumerism is part of that.
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 a year ago, losing belongings and my home, and going through other trials, I can confidently say that we do not need much.
Especially during these uncertain times, we need to be very conscious of how we are spending our money. You certainly don’t need added financial stress. And you definitely don’t need to go into financial debt to acquire things!
So, think twice before you click “add to cart”. And be grateful for 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. As I alluded to previously…
It’s 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.
