Selling Out To "The Man"
One of the things I've been struggling with as a blogger is how many reviews or giveaways are too many. As I've grown my blog and my brand and built this little community here, I've gotten more offers and more PR plugs. Some of them are total bullshit and the only reason I respond is to screw with the little PR minds responsible for them.But, I'm also getting a lot of offers that are potentially beneficial to me and even to y'all (when I get to do a giveaway). And this is where my bloggy angst is coming from. I didn't get into blogging to get free stuff for myself and others. I got into blogging to save my sanity when we were immersed in our infertility struggle. But, when I really look at it, I can acknowledge that I've become a pretty good writer and, if I accept these review opportunities and giveaways, I feel like my blogging time isn't so selfish and just about me. I feel like I'm actually contributing something to my family. Sooooooo, I'm going to ask something of y'all. If you ever feel like I'm focusing too much on the reviews and giveaways, please say something. I don't want to alienate any of my
readers friends but I also don't want to miss out on getting cool shit for my family or sharing some of that cool shit with you. I'm going to rely on y'all to help me stay on an even keel.
