I'm just curious, I've been reading a lot of blogs and I'm finding that so many blogs are featuring lots of reviews and give-a-ways but not a lot of articles. Does anyone feel the same way?
YES! YES! YES!
There are some people I find and ALL they have is giveaways. Giveaways are nice if they are good and useful and I sign every once in a while. But I mainly signed up to blog to meet people, make NEW friends, and help develop my writing skills. I am a writer. Not to talk bad about the blogs that do giveaways, I like them, but I more interested in the friends aspect.
I tend to agree with Alexes. I blog for my friends and family first and then to meet new people. The give-aways are nice and sweet, but I want to find others I can relate to, laugh with, learn something new with, lean on when I've had a bad day, etc. It's been especially nice for me as a military spouse who moves every 6 months to 2 years.
I definitely feel that way...maybe not just contest and giveaways, but ads, too. I know that most of us hope to make some money doing this, but I find myself drawn to a blog with a cool name, hoping to read a good post or have a laugh, and then get overwhelmed by a million ads and giveaways and few posts.
I find it very hard to keep up with more than one blogs and I really enjoy doing giveaways, however, I am trying to have one personal post a day. Last week I failed to do this because i was on vacation, but I'm going to try harder this week. I know that's what people want to read is about me..
I started doing giveaways and I really enjoy doing it and reviewing products. I guess it just depends on who you are whether you like those blogs or not. I post about personal stuff, along with daily memes as well to try to keep the balance.
Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…
