Today, I received a response from someone I pitched [to do a review on my blog] and she turned me down. I was really bummed about it. When I sent her my pitch letter yesterday, I did it as a way to “take a chance.” I really didn’t expect her to allow me to review for her but I wanted to take the chance anyway. When I received her response, I did not expect to feel so horrible about it.
I was already a fan of her Facebook page and wanted to review her product so much. For the last several weeks, I have been interested in alphabet art! I would love to create my own framed art projects to hang up around my own home. While I am not crafty, I love framed art and would love to create my own.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I received her response early this afternoon. I felt so down about it and even considered taking my own pictures of letters to make my own art projects.
After conducting an internet search for other options, I eventually found eBay, there are a few sellers on there that sell the very same product I want! I have always turned to eBay or Amazon for products that I want but cannot afford if I were to buy it directly from a website.
In conclusion, I am so thrilled to have found a similar product for much less! This has made me realize that I am determined. When I set my mind to something, I find a way to make it happen!
So, how do YOU handle rejection? How would you have handled this situation?
