I have been debating about doing giveaways and reviews of products on my blog.
I haven't decided if this is a good or a bad idea.
I have talked to a few "companies," and it appears that they would like blogs to have more followers, which I can understand.
But, I don't just want to get followers because I'm giving something away. I want followers with whom I have something in common with or because they like to read what I write. This is why I follow the blogs that I do, because I enjoy reading them.
I laugh with ya, I tear up with ya.
Plus, no one wants to be the first one to give me a chance at a review. Another thing I understand.
Then there is the issue with ads. I don't really want to go that route. I have seen some blogs that are so clustered with google ads that it is hard to read.
I'm considering trying that "link within" widget that I have seen on quite a few blogs that I enjoy. The ones that use it, do you like it?? I know it only links to similar posts, which is a good thing.
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
