I got a message from my friend recently and he was asking about my previous post on the World Club Room at Genting Highlands (http://wp.me/p2BhOI-4T). I answered his questions and recommended him the place. He thought I was getting paid for all my write ups on sleepwithroy and eatwithroy.com!
No no no, I have not been getting paid for any write ups nor any ads on my sites to date since I started in 2009 (maybe later I might to earn some passive income!) I do get invitations to write up on places and restaurants and usually I would mention if I was invited or not on the first paragraph. And even if I am invited for such events, I would write accordingly to my taste buds or what I see and witness. Because to me, if you dare to do a media invite, you should be ready for criticisms especially the constructive ones for you to do corrective actions to your menu or hotel.
So there you have it, hope I have cleared the air. Thank you for the high readership so far guys, it’s been climbing like mad especially after the 100k mark! You guys are awesome!
