Vix Meldrew

Post by sassy_hun » Wed Jul 18, 2018 5:50 am

Anyone else find Vix Meldrew really annoying now???

I liked her when she blogged about sex and relationships, but her content is so boring now. Since she got a boyfriend all she does is sponsored posts and insta stories of awful looking clothes or her messy flat.

Also, is it just me or does the boyfriend look like a pervert??

I agree that she’s boring now. Her clothes always look awful, she picks the most unflattering things for her shape.

Every single outfit on her YouTube videos is so terrible!

She will jump on any bandwagon going! So lazy!

One week she does a try on video of Primark clothes that are too small, the next she's wanging on about how unethical "fast fashion" is. I remember her making a big song and dance about having a podcast, that seems to have gone by the wayside too.

She can't stick at anything! Hannah Gale had a point when she called her out on this blog: http://hannahgale.co.uk/2018/10/02/wher ... right-now/

Vix and her "exciting emails", eye roll. She doesn't have an original bone in her body.

Aw I like her. Granted I used to love her sex/dating writing but I suppose it'd be hard to keep that up once she'd found someone. I agree the Primark clothes were not good choices though.
Is that Hannah Gale post really about her? I thought they were mates?

The thing I find most annoying is that she has a finger in every pie. One minute she's doing a podcast, the next she's doing youtube, the next she's starting a fourth instagram account. Her life is an actual mess.

What I don't get is how people are trusting her to coach them on potentially their careers??? How can you pay someone hundreds to sort out something for you when they don't have their own shit together in the first place? :rofl:

I wouldn’t be paying someone who only has 13k followers to coach me...

She knows she was at her peak when writing about sex and now I don’t even know what she does and she doesn’t either. Everything she does now is flat and pointless. She should go back to working full time.

She needs to apply some of her “coaching” advice to her own blog seeing as she only has 13k followers and her growth is incredibly slow compared to others. I wouldn’t be paying someone to help with my blog if they couldn’t prove that their advice had provided them with plenty of success first

It’s so crazy! It’s not as if she’s some blogging guru with all the answers! Cringe

I can't figure out how to post a photo so I've just copied and pasted her caption from her latest Instagram photo:

yvixmeldrew "I am a frigging mess and it actually shouldn’t be allowed.

Sometimes my professional fuck ups are so outrageous that I wonder why I’m still doing this to be honest.
Just this winter I’ve:
- sent a pitch email and put the wrong brand name in
- apparently just been blocked on Twitter for DMing someone about pitching to them - forgotten to post an Instagram advert FOR Black Friday ON Black Friday

There’s probably too many others to remember.

But it teaches me that I am SO ready for Christmas and a fresh start next year, where I can hopefully not be so frigging useless."

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

If you're paying this mess to teach you how to blog you need to reassess your life

She looks bloody awful in the photo on her instastory today with the pink jacket. She used to look great in the early days of her blog. The awkwardness she feels is so blatant in her selfie pics. I really don’t understand how someone who is clearly struggling with life is getting people queuing up to have her coach them

She's had ONE therapy session and is now doing a Q+A as if she is some kind of expert!!

Bet she sticks to this for about a week like all her half arsed ideas

Still don’t understand why people pay her money to coach them when she doesn’t have a particularly big following (if her ideas worked then surely her following would be bigger than 13k?!) and she also seems to massively struggle with normal day to day life. All she seems to do is sit around watching Say Yes To The Dress. I hope she sticks at the therapy and it sorts her out.

I love that in her latest email she said a comment about naming roaches after people who are negative about her selling a list of hashtags. Too fucking right!!!! £15 for a list of hashtags is an absolute rip off and she should be ashamed of herself

Has she gained a lot of weight recently? I don’t think her fiancé is a good influence with her looking after herself. They seem to just binge on junk food in bed when they spend time together

Bit late to this but I was so amused by her January blog post about growing your blog's DA.

The advice is so surface-level and basic and misses out the main way to grow your DA by building quality backlinks. I hope no one is using it to actually improve their blog! She also mentions her DA is 31 'which is pretty decent for a blog'. It's not a bad DA but it's also hardly aspirational - the big UK bloggers like Hand Luggage Only (travel) and Love My Dress (weddings) have DAs of 55-60+. To be doling out DA advice when your DA is just 'ok' is quite ironic.

I'd say she's much more of an 'influencer' than a blogger these days anyway, and the whole Exciting Emails thing is bizarre. Any serious bloggers won't be going there to pay for advice. I don't mind Vix as a person and used to like her blog but I am finding all this guru stuff really off.

I hope she has a back up plan work wise as I can’t see her still being able to make decent money from what she’s doing in a couple of years time. At least she can go back to teaching I suppose
