While writing this week’s TT5, I ran into a problem: the platform on which I create targeted affiliate links wasn’t working. After some research, it turns out none of my lululemon collective affiliate links were working. So I emailed the platform company to figure out what was happening. Almost a full 24 hours later I got emails from lululemon and then the platform company informing me that employees are no longer eligible to participate in the lululemon collective due to “legal and People & Culture restraints”, whatever the heck that means.
I love lululemon, I’ve worked for lululemon for over 7 years … but at the moment I’m incredibly disappointed. I’ve had a lot of fun with these Tuesday Top 5 and Thursday Markdown Lowdown posts over the last few months. It takes more time and effort than I realized to put together these lists, create links, write product copy and get my posts up in a timely manner twice a week; I’ve invested many, many hours in creating these posts. But it’s also been really fun, and I’ve made some extra money. I was really starting to get excited about blogging and expanding my post topics when this news hit me and kinda stopped me in my tracks. I’m still digesting the news, and I’m not sure what the future of Living My Bex Life is going to look like or if there will even be one.
