Now then, I like contests, I really do. I've won a few of them now, and I'm even planning on having some myself; but what I can't stand are people who update their blog more for contests than anything else. I am this > < close to not following someone any more because all they do is tell me about other contests around the blogosphere.
I get that you're trying to rack up points for yourself, but I started following you so that I could see your thoughts on things, follow your writing progress, get to know you. Not watch your efforts to win contests. A lot of us have sidebar content specifically for contests. I have one. It's on the left with my widgets and my review ratings.
I've blogged about cool contests, too, but I still post my own content. I don't let other people's contests take over MY blog, and neither should you. And I really don't like un-following people, but I will if your blog transforms into something that aggravates me every time it shows up in my feed.
Now I'm irritated. I'm off to find a bamboo knitting needle my mom lost, maybe that'll help. Man, I really need to start knitting again...
Alright, Happy Fourth, everyone! :)
