Last week, I read this article and was pretty moved. It’s true – this voting thing is nothing more than a popularity contest. I’ve even mentioned it on here, when asking for votes.
The truth is, being on sites like these does increase traffic to your blog. It does help you meet other bloggers and sponsors. It does pave the way for new ideas, creativity & inspiration, and better writing.
But the daily voting & quarterly resetting (happening as we speak) of TopBabyBlogs has worn me out. Katherine’s article gave me the push I needed to make a decision – I will no longer be begging you guys for votes. Not here, not on Twitter, & not on Facebook. Instead, I’ll let you know when the votes reset, and I will leave the link up on the side of the blog for you to vote whenever you want to show your support. I can only hope this blog has enough substance to keep itself afloat. We’ll see! Thanks for your votes, your comments, your emails, your tweets – all of it!
