Fundraising is hard work, done with the best intentions in mind. While you might get caught up in the spirit of “doing good,” you could be doing it wrong. Whether it’s a communication failure or a lack of foresight, here are five mistakes you’ll want to avoid when…
There’s something about the summer that brings out the fun in kids. Long summer days without any thought of school foster the type of carefree living children relish every year. The only bad thing about the summer is it can go by really fast. As parents, it is important to…
So I joined MBC last week and I enjoy all the new blog I'm following and all the new followers I have. But one slight complaint I have is a lot of the blogs are nothing more then giveaways and coupon blogs.
Are there any bloggers out there that stick with general mommy topics, crafts, reading, marriage?
If so I want to follow my blog and exchange I think you'll enjoy my blog.
I tend to agree with you. I have a "real" blog, but (lol) at the moment I'm having a giveaway simply because I just opened my own online shop. Otherwise, I generally talk about my business, life with kids and husband, and generally anything that comes to mind.
The Boulie Blog
And I even have a (somewhat neglected) French blog if you're curious... sorry about the current topic, I promise it's not always like that and generally isn't!
I've been sort of wondering the same thing! I've visited several of the blogs listed here, and it's refreshing to find people blogging about life instead of just selling something. I'm a freelance writer and I typically blog about life parenting my two teens (tending to focus on the more humorous aspects), and occasionally creative-writing related stuff. You can find my blog at:
I sent this same message out a while back. I too am looking for real writers who do not do promotional giveaways. I understand and appreciate that these women are working hard but I prefer to read real life stories.
My blog, titled IS DIS NORMAL OR DYSFUNCTIONAL, is a non-fiction adult fairy tale that exposes the raw truth of what happens when I, a girl from Massachusetts, naively leaves my sheltered fairy tale world behind in search for true love in Aspen, Colorado.
I hope that you enjoy my humorous and inspirational story about how dreams do not always need to be shattered and that love is worth waiting for, especially if you want to throw children in the mix http://isdisnormal.com.
I don't do giveaways. I'm a mommy (well...a grandmommy now!). And a professional writer. And a blogger who posts every single day -- NON-giveaway, NON-review posts. Well, wait a minute. I do give prizes for the winners of my weekly haiku contest, but they're silly antique finds, not advertiser-supported goodies.
Hi Alexandria. I'm about to check out your blog. Love the title.
I have a real blog all about mommyhood. No give-aways, coupons, ads, etc. It's all posts about mommyhood. My purpose is to talk about how to live "organically" without giving yourself a nervous breakdown and keeping a sense of humor and a sense of reality. I'd love it if you came by to check it out. Would love to know what you think!!!
I feel the same way. I am new to the blogging world. I just created my blog a few weeks ago and through browsing blogs I find a lot of surface level blogs on giveaways and coupons and tips and stuff, I am looking for the real stuff as well. I am a Navy wife and SAHM to a 21 month old daughter. My blog is about my life with these roles and the thoughts I have about stuff and things I am dealing with and learning in my life. Check it out if you want. I love your blog and I check up for new posts on a regular basis :) http://reflectionsofanavywife.blogspot.com/
