Will you be my second wife? As dowry, I’ll give you 4K of my medium bot followers.
I seriously doubt anyone is making fantastic sums — it’s all a PR experiment. Perhaps, few brands are willing to plaster their name on it — yet. That’s probably why there is so much confusion. Remember mommy blog portal/forums secretly owned by P&G?
