I guess I'm glad I didn't get in to hosting giveaways on my blog.
I just spent 15 minutes going through my feed reader and unsubscribed from a bunch of blogs that at one point used to host giveaways, but have had nothing new to post in months. Some of them have new posts, but they're totally uninteresting to me.
That could have been my blog, if I had gone that direction.
Companies only give you stuff so many times. Eventually you run out of companies to approach if you are doing giveaways for a very specific audience (like cloth diapers). I may not have a whole bunch of followers, and we might be lucky if I update my blog every month, but I do update. I've been around for 6 years. I guess I'm not a young'n in blog land. I'm just not well know, and that's probably just as well.
I'm not opposed to doing a give away once in a while for my small collection of loyal readers. But don't expect me jump on the giveaways bandwagon. There's more to blogging than that.
