While I am all about reviews, having done them myself, my google reader is full of reviews/ads/and giveaway blogs. I'd love to connect with some blogs that aren't all reviews. I don't mind a few here and there, but to read a blog that is more about parenting/marriage/spiritual stuff and add it to my Fave folder would be wonderful.

Anyone? Do you have a blog that is only 25% or less reviews and the rest of it is about life? Please share your link with me!

Thanks

PS:  Mine is Hidden Valley Simplicity with some book reviews between the "helpful", daily life posts.

I run a health blog for moms. I have about ten other moms that write for me and we do a lot more than just giveaways and reviews. I am with you on this! I usually skip through reviews on my favorite blogs and read the other things that they write about. There are some blogs that I used to love in the past but they just turned into review and giveaway blogs so I stopped reading them.

Oh! Thank you for starting this. Here is mine- The Mom Writes, offering simple, practical tips on simple and green living, working from home as a writer, parenting toddlers and creating a comfortable home. I have reviews but only for books and products I truly enjoy.
I look forward to connecting with all of you awesome writers.

I agree that is why I have a seperate blog for both reviews and life!

I am a new mom and a literacy specialist and instructor at Columbia University, so I blog about how moms and others can foster a love of reading and writing -- even when your child is just a baby.

I don't do any reviews or sell anything--it's purely for information and for fun!

HI Melissa! I am so thankful for your post. I am currently an ad free, review free blog that is all about changing the way parents feed their children. I have spent my life battling autoimmune diseases, physical disabilites, and chronic pain. Only after altering the way I eat (and the grace of God), have I began to reverse some of the debilitating effects and triumph over infertility. After receiving a much larger "audience" than I anticipated, I have began to attract some interest from companies regarding reviews and giveaways. I will admit that it is enticing because I know they will bring more people into the Healthnut Foodie community. However, I am really scared to turn people off and make them believe I am just in this for the money (so far I have not made a dime...or penny). What are your thoughts on the proper way to "monetize" your blog without comprimising your integrity?

My blog is about education for children making learning fun. I review books and bring them to the attention of parents. I also like to do giveaways, giving parents' children free children's books, school supplies and gifts as I have hundreds of them to giveaway.
