Thanks to all the amazing and thought-through comments that have really helped to put a sense of balance on this. The journalist in me wants a story at any cost, the blogger in me says it just isn’t worth it for a million and one reasons outlined by the comments. It’s make-up, and we’ll all get to hear about it in the end…the medium maybe doesn’t matter. But, social media issues are bound to keep cropping up till it becomes more accepted. I’ll always stand up for blogs and bloggers as a brilliant resource for those looking for a different and very frank form of writing about beauty, and I’ll keep looking for new stories in the belief that it does bring something different and exciting to my blog, but now I know where my line is drawn. Thank you again. x
