Regular Link Ups? Nada.
Call it what you will but I have looked up link-ups on days that I need something to blog for, but I’ve never been one to be able to make myself write on a specific subject just for a link-up. I do use link-ups, however, but I don’t ever want to make my blog all link-up posts! It has to be a link-up that I feel like fits.
So the most y’all we will be getting from me is A-List posts, and baby updates.
I love hosting giveaways, but having them all the time isn’t something I’m interested in.
which is exactly why I make it free for you, too.
Having a blog is supposed to be a way to have your own space, your own creative outlet – so why put rules on it? Sure, there are tips and tricks that help – but rules? No thank you.
I think there are all things that each blogger prefers, or little things that drive them a bit batty – for example, when somebody leaves me a comment like “newest follower! Come follow me back!” – not only do I see the email, most of the time delete it – but I don’t usually go. I want blog on my reader that I enjoy reading, because as a blogger, I want people reading and following my blog that want to read it, that want to connect.
But who am I to say that’s not the way to blog and comment?
I’ve seen large blogs leave those comments, and it works for them – but it’s not what I prefer, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to come up with a rules post.
See where I am coming from?
Moral of this post – blog what you want, when you want to blog.
It’s your blog, your space – so do your thing!
As for as rules go – I think the only rule that seriously applies is a life rule to “Treat others how you want to be treated” – so don’t write rude comments (I’ve been lucky and haven’t gotten hateful comments – but have seen many out there!) and comment when you have something nice to say.
