Later in the evening, a friend of mine was complaining on how some bloggers get all the nice stuff (invites to events as media, gifts, etc etc) and how some don't.
Well, it all boils down to hard work. Getting your blog noticed requires a lot of dedication, and determination (and some semblance of writing skill) on your part. And although my hit count is way lower than that of Kenny Sia and Xiaxue, I've received my fair share of perks as well, example:
- Invites to cover media events, such as EA's Play 08
- Free stuff, like the t-shirts I got from 80stees.
- Free movie screenings
- Fan mail
- Advertising revenue, which I used to purchase many of the new games you see in my video games library.
