I know I am not the best, nor most consistent,
blogger in the world.
And I am not trying to criticize other bloggers.
I am definitely in the "to each his own" camp.
But I have noticed an uptick in the sponsored posts
in the blog world.
Maybe it is just the blogs I read.
I understand wanting to make a little money off of blogging.
I will never make 10¢ off blogging.
That is not one of my goals either.
But when every single post is a "sponsored" post.
I get a little bored.
And honestly start skimming that blogger's posts in the future.
I like many different kinds of blogs ...
lifestyle, photography, food, etc.
Heck, I even like "mommy" blogs and I have no children.
I love reading about other people's lives.
I love reading about our differences and love when I find things in common with complete strangers.
And I really do not mind sponsored posts, a lot of times I find some good products or ideas from those posts.
But I still want to see the normal posts as well.
If that makes any sense!
I know, I know.
The easy fix is to stop reading those particular blogs.
And I have done that occasionally.
But I always feel bad when I do.
I start following blogs for a reason and it always makes me a little sad to stop reading someone I once found interesting.
I know this is rambling all over the place.
And I am not meaning to criticize or offend anyone.
It was just something I have noticed quite often lately.
