I sometimes wish blogging was the way it use to be. Now everyone is so worried about how many people read their blog, enticing people with giveaways or a feature spot.. when it didn't use to be that way ( and I don't have a problem with giveaways...but be sincere!). Don't get me wrong, I'm excited when I see how many new visitors I have, but that isn't my sole purpose for blogging. There are like, blog cliques! lol. People leave comments on other blogs, that seem so desperate for people to read their blog: You really should read my blog...you really should...it's cool...read my blog...have you read my blog? And I sometimes want to say- just write! If people read..great, if not...then it's no big deal.
I'm all for networking with other bloggers- I try to network. I like reading about other people and what they love to do, and what's going on in their life. I've made some great friends that way...but I don't make a big deal out of me following someone's blog, and them not following back. I may not have anything in common with a Mormon stay at home mom from Utah, but that doesn't mean I don't find her life interesting....she may find me crass or my language ungodly ( I am, and my language isn't as bad in my blog as it is in real life) so she may not be interested in reading about me! But, I have no problem with that.
I guess I'm just writing this post to say..........Just blog, and people will follow.
