I really haven't posted since Tuesday? Really? That seems like just yesterday, and here we are back at Friday Follow, and I almost forgot to post at all. Work has been keeping me busy, though not as busy as I like, and making the days fly by even faster. So I find myself at FF, again.
I love all the new blogs I have run across through FF, I don't, however, love all the non personal blogs I have found. Does that make sense? I am all for giveaways and paid posts to make some money, (wish I could get to do some!!) but I hate to see a blog that is no longer a personal outlet and is consumed with marketing posts. I would love to do some giveaways, and God knows, I would LOVE to make some money here! But my blog is most importantly my personal outlet. My own little corner of the world where I can say whatever the hell I want and if you don't like it-DON"T READ ME!! Simple as that.
OK, that being said, I would like to welcome all the owners of said "marketing only" blogs to stop following me. Not that I want you to stop following me, just that you are welcome to stop if you want. You see, it's only fair as I didn't follow you back on previous Follow Fridays. The first FF I participated in I followed everyone back no matter what, in the spirit of playing by the rules. Then as weeks went on I became rebellious. I followed blogs of people who are talking and sharing as I do, and skipped the rest. I have no interest in weeding through all that commercial crap in my reader, so I can get to the blogs that actually have something to say.
I am not immune to the lure of entering a contest (wish I would win one!), and really wish I could figure out how to make this blog more profitable, so far I am at the 'golden goose egg' level of monetization. But this blog will remain my voice. Eventually something will click. I invite everyone to keep on with the comments. I read and love them all. I get so excited to see them, so keep it up please! So hopefully I don't get banned from future Friday Follows for not following everyone back, but at least I'm honest about it. Talk to you all soon.....
