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!

I hardly ever do reviews. I mostly show off pictures I've taken throughout the day along with funny stories of things that have happened or projects I've been working on. :) Think of my blog as a fun letter from a friend....
I hear ya! My blog is definitely less than 25% reviews- mostly about "mom stuff" and kids and the outdoors. I also do a series called Momcomm Monday where I help blogger improve their writing, blogging and social media skills (I'm a marketer by day). Here's my URL:
I'm with you on that one! I actually had to un-follow a good handful of blog recently because it felt like I was walking through a virtual mall every time I was opening my reader! Here are a few faves of mine:
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.
