Thoughtful Thursday

Ugh I almost forgot to write today! How could I? Anyway, I hope its not too late! haha of course it isn't! It's still Thursday!
So I've been thinking lately about publicity. I do so dislike it when bloggers are all "I'll give something away if I get more followers" um yeah, no offence to anybody personally, but heres the order of things:

1. You write about an interesting topic
2. People follow you

Do you really want people to follow you just so that they have a chance of winning something? I want people to follow me because they want to hear more about what I have to say, or because I inspire them, or because they like looking at my photos.

(by the way, giveaway reminds me that I still haven't finished the whole contest thing, I keep forgetting, sorry!

Believe me, your hearing from a girl who gets all sorts of annoying junk mail simply because she once entered a contest. Do you really want people logging into blogger and thinking 'ugh I wish that girl would stop writing or post a giveway, I'm so tired of seeing her posts on google reader.' ?

It took me a year to get 25 followers, and 2 people have stopped following my blog. And your sitting there promising somebody a cookie if you get 25 followers in one week.

Anyway, just some thoughts, L<3ved


  1. I really hate that, it's just like you said, having people follow you for a cookie. Now I only enter giveaways when I like the thing and If I'm already following their blog, if not I don't bother. Another thing that bothers me is the constant giveaways, enough already! Post a nice outfit or a interesting topic! Oh and don't even get me started with the spaces for sponsors posts!

  2. i agree with you 100%...i couldn't have said it better.

  3. actually, i'd really like to post what you said on my blog. do i have your permission?

  4. Yeah I can understand adds in sidebars but not sponsors. Unless your raising money for a good cause.

    Wow thanks. Sure go ahead.
