Okay, it's blog news time!
First of all, I have drawn for next week's Mommy's Fabulous Find Friday. The featured follower will be.........
Robynn from Robynn's Ravings~she has been randomly selected by the Random.Org generator to be my featured follower next Friday June 12th! I am so excited to interview her-her blog is fabulous and she is such a neat lady-you all should definitely go check her out---but remember you have to come back here to read her interview. Congrats to Robynn!
Also-don't forget...if you would like a chance to be featured all you have to do is follow me. I don't care how you do it, but remember if you subscribe via reader or email you will need to comment and let me know you are following me so that you can be put into the pool. Every one of my followers is put in chronological order and then each Wednesday I get a randomly generated number, find the corresponding follower, and email them my questions to be featured the following Friday.
I am looking forward to eventually featuring every one of you!
Also in blog news, it's summer. Well, I guess that's kind of Northern Hemisphere news....but let's put it in a way that is all about me. It's summer and that means BLOG MAKEOVER!
Now don't fret longtime followers, I am not going to do a massive overhaul as I am ever so fond of doing, so put away the 12 step brochures. I'm actually still loving my little cartoon gal, so she's going to stay! I'm just going to do a few tweeks to make her seasonally appropriate. I have decided to do this every season-new colors, new post separators, nothing big, but something fun for spring/summer/fall/winter that will also appease my redesigning habit.
The summer layout will be making it's debut next Thursday (June 11th), so stop on by and see the wonder of it all!
Let's see, what else?
Oh yes, I wanted to get your opinions-should I or should I not start seeking/accepting ads for my site? I have been thinking of pros and cons, and I am still undecided.
In the pro category, I could possibly get money and/or products which could result in the ability to host fabulous giveaways like the ones I am always entering. Well, maybe not that good at first, but you know. Similar in that I would be giving things away for free. And money...well money has multiple purposes and I'm not going to pretend I don't like imagining having more of it.
In the con category though I worry that seeking/accepting ads for the blog will make me seem...er...sellouty. [Selloutish? How does one properly make up words?] Not that I am insulting anyone who has ads on their site (d'oh-insert foot into mouth, er, keyboard). I just don't know how I personally feel about putting ads on my page. I don't want anyone (especially me) to feel like my blog is a 'corporate' blog, or to feel like I am just doing it for the money (although again, I really have nothing against monetary gain). I want to be able to keep writing whatever I feel.
I'm on the fence....bloggy friends? What say you?
