Why I Will Never Be a Big Name Blogger

I give thought, every once in a harvest moon, about what direction I want to go with my blog.  I don't have a very big audience and I don't work that hard to gain a following.  The truth is I am afraid to work on my blog as a business.  I don't want expectations here because truthfully this is the only place in my life that has no expectations.  I can come as I want and not have to answer to anyone.
Okay, yes I take the occasional review but that is only because I want to.  If I find I don't want to write about a product I receive I won't.  That might not make me popular with PR peeps, but would they rather have a half ass review or a negative review?  At the end of the day I like free stuff and of the hundred review  requests I receive each week  you are lucky if I take one of those opportunities. 
So the other day I was thinking of all the things that make me a no-name, and will continue to keep me in my small blogger shell.  Besides what I stated above this is what I came up with....

  1. I think Nutella is disgusting.
That is all.
Happy Monday!

Somewhat, very regularly, in a semi-stalker kinda way submitted to:


  1. I agree with your review policy as well. I only do the ones that I want, but will reply to let others know that it is just not right for me. Just tried Nutella for the first time the other day. I am not a fan either. Of course, I am not a chocolate fan - so that probably had something to do with it. The boys all really like it.

  2. I'll never be a big name blogger cause no one ever sends me free stuff to review. I don't know why. I've always joked that my loyalty can easily be bought. Ha!

    But I have to respectfully disagree about Nutella. I'm in love with it. Especially Nutella and banana sammiches.

  3. I hate self promotion and all that monitizing bs and all the other garbage that happens with bloggers. what ever happened to "I like you so I'll read your stuff"??

    I like you
    and I read your stuff.

  4. GASP! You don't like nutella? We should kick you out of the blogosphere.


    I used to do 'sponsored' posts - I got a free product and a decent payment on top of it (not BlogHer) but then I decided I was compromising way too much and just because my kids liked the DVD's, I was running out of things to say.

    So I stopped. And yes, I'm missing the money a bit, but meh. I'd prefer to review things I love, because I love them, rather than things I don't like, because my kid does and the money is good.

    And now I've rambled all over your blog. Sorry. Over from Anna.


Thanks for your comments- they are like pennies from heaven.


Life doesn't seem fair  and I am a witness. "I don't believe in God" she says And I have nothing to refute it. I see...
