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 blog about my home and my family. We homeschool, so I talk about that. I'm passionate about reading and literacy, so I talk about that a little bit as well. I love travel and food and well, just stuff. that's what you get at my blog.
If people want to follow me then I am just delighted, but I want followers who are interested in what I have to say, not just numbers on my Google friends connect thingy (technical term for something I'm too old to understand there).
I have been meaning to do some blog "cleaning" lately. I want to go through and get rid of anything I don't read because I am following 200 and something blogs and only a handful I actually read and comment on,the rest are giveaways.The giveaways are great and all but I just never enter them.
Amen to that Jeanne! I don't want random followers just to create some artificially inflated statistics. If you're going to follow me I'd like it to be because you're interested in what I say. I am immediately turned off by the giveaways that are "extra entry" happy--it seems they just want bigger numbers to get more PR people interested to get more stuff to giveaway to get bigger numbers....its a vicious cycle. And completely unappealing to me. But thats me, I suppose.(Although from what I'm reading here, its not *just* me!!)
Anyway, thanks for checking me out, and I'll definitely head over your way too! (But I'll only follow if I really like you :-P J/K!!!)
Hi there! I do have a giveaway/review here and there on my personal blog (Mother of Pearl It Is), but it's mostly about my family, sharing recipes, and meeting new blog friends. Check it out and I'll be checking yours out too. :)
Hey there! I agree! While I do giveaway, that is not what my blog is about! I am a mom blogger that blogs about mom stuff. I am a new follower of yours! Nice to meet you! I invite you to come check mine out as well!
I don't do many giveaways and such. I mostly discuss being a working mom, a divorced mom, etc. I definitely prefer these types of blogs and tend to skip over those that are just full of products and giveaways. Thanks for starting this thread! I will check out your blog. Mine is http://ewokmama.com
I am not married, but I blog about my wonderful daughter and all our adventures and just how it is being a mommy. Crafty stuff is big also! I like a giveaway or review blog once and a while but what I really want to hear about are people's lives!
