@Zinzerena: Sorry to hear about the Bee. It seems like a tough and complicated issue!


How are you going to be in the movie? Are you an extra or an actress etc? Exciting!

@Zinzerena:  I don’t think it’s fair to make that leap that just because YOU didn’t get accepted it must be because the Bee doesn’t want to see different kinds of weddings.  They may not have connected with your writing style, or feel that you had enough experience blogging.  There could have been any number of reasons you weren’t accepted.  Also, they have a lot of people who apply (obviously since they can only accept 12% of applicants).. I don’t think it unreasonable that they would use a form letter.

Also… keep trying.  Many of the bees will tell you they were rejected at least once before being accepted.

I think I would have to agree. They don’t show any kind of differnt weddings, IMO. It’s seems to be the “in” type of weddings they show…like right now how rustic DIY is really popular. I don’t even think they post “real weddings” that are different…like how they said that was another option. (I apllied for that back on July 19th and haven’t heard so it must be a no). Seems to be all the same kind of stuff…either really expensive weddings or rustic DIY stuff. (I have nothing against either, just saying)

@Moose1209: According to her tracker, they haven’t even been reading her blog.

@linguo42: Exactly. Which implies that there is no interest whatsoever in even considering her wedding, @Moose1209:. No consideration=rejection.

Unless, that is, someone can give a better reason for the rejection.

Could they have possibly added it to a Google reader and read it that way? Or subscribed to an RSS feed or something?

Does it suck? Sure. But, don’t you think replying with something like, “Do you have any constructive criticism for me?” would be more helpful for you than making assumptions like that and starting a thread like this calling them liars? Also, if you ask many of the blogger bees, a large majority have said countless times they took their constructive criticism and made their blog better, then reapplied. Some reapplied several times and admit realizing that they probably didn’t have the best blogging voice when they started. I’d really suggest talking to Pengy if you really want to try again to become a blogger. Best of luck.

@Zinzerena: I’m sorry that your application wasn’t chosen this time around.  I would encourage you to keep applying.  The first time that I applied, I received the exact same email – I suspect that everyone does.  Mrs. Penguin is happy to answer any questions that she can about your application, and most, if not all, of the bloggers are happy to look at your blog and offer suggestions – I know many have taken that road in the past in this 4 week time period.  It can be really disappointing to get that email, I know because I got it too.  You are a very positive and active contributer to Weddingbee, and I would hope that you will continue to make your voice heard both here and on your blog.

P.S. That’s awesome that you’re going to be in a movie!
