Wow. I made a complete butt of myself earlier today. I was checking some pending payments with one of the companies I do sponsored posts for and came across a list of posts that said "declined by user". I had NOT had my coffee yet and should have slowed down and thought my decision through, but all I saw was RED. I couldn't believe that after all the hard work that I had put into these posts, they were being declined. Especially since I had already gotten them approved by admin. I declined pending tasks and sent an e-mail questioning how ALL my posts had been declined and where could I find info on the whole approval process.
Then I had my coffee. Got Boog off to school. Dropped some EC's. Had some more coffee, and set out to find the information I was looking for. I checked the sites TOS and FAQ pages and finally decided to look at their TOS and FAQ's for the advertisers. Nowhere did it say that they could decline ads. In fact it said just the opposite...
and the light bulb went off!
The "declined by user" posts I was looking at were the tasks I had declined...oops. I sent an apologetic "I'm an Idiot" message to the company, and hopefully they will get a good laugh and continue to allow me to write for them.
No more working before coffee!
(most declined offers were from companies I had already posted for, thus the reason for declining and the confusion.)
