Before I begin, I just want to clarify that I do not even know what a meme is but I was going for "Lions and tigers and bears! Oh, my!" from The Wizard of Oz and I needed a third blog 'thing' to include in the title.
I've been hard a work to try and build a following for this blog. I have signed up on almost every website imaginable and have been whoring out my blog like a prostitute on the Sunset Strip. I understand if most of the people listed as followers never come back here again. I hate to admit that I too am listed as a follower to several blogs that I intend to never read. My better judgement said 'don't do it' but the greedy blogger in me wanted more followers.
I have found plenty of blogs that I enjoy reading. They have even inspired me as I find my blogging style. I am still green when it was to the blogging world (I'm sure there is a better term. I don't know what it is!).
But the majority I have encountered are completely dedicated to Giveaways and Contests! I love free crap just as much as anyone. I have tried to score a few items myself! I am not saying don't do it... If I see something I want and someone is giving it away you better believe I am going to do everything I can to try to get it!
But how about some content ladies? I'm interested in what you have to say believe it or not. I would be much more inclined to read your blog on a regular basis, and therefore participate in more of your giveaways and contests, if you had a voice.
I'd love to giveaway some free crap to my followers! Not because it will bring more traffic to my site but because I genuinely like them, especially those that comment on my posts (and not just because you commented but because you actually had something to say!).
WannabeWAHM update: I am still hard at work trying to launch my own business. Don't think I've forgotten the reason why this blog was created in the first place. More info in a future post.
