But who likes doing chores anyway? And here recently blogging has felt like a chore. And that literally takes all the fun out of it. When I have to tell myself, oh crap, I NEED to go blog today, what the hell has gone wrong?
I started this blog back in March after reading a few blogs because I had all these funny stories I wanted to share with everyone. And sprinkle in some life advice too because I do feel like I am wise at times. But then I got sucked into this blogging community with companies giving things to review, hosting giveaways, and accepting sponsors.
And all of that stuff is fun. But it is a lot of work. And it has gotten so far from what I originally started this blog for.
So in order to make sure I concentrate on my grad classes this upcoming semester and try to make good grades, I unfortunately will no longer be accepting paid sponsors.
When I accept sponsors, I want to make sure I do more than just let someone sit on my sidebar. I want to get to know my sponsors. I want to stalk them and read their blog and shower them with social media love and blog comments. And I haven't been able to do that lately. So I do not think it's fair to accept sponsors until I am able to devote the attention that I want to them.
I will still post when I get a chance during the semester because my idea list is a mile long and it will only get longer! I will still accept swaps. I will also still check my Facebook page, Instagram, and Snapchat. Sorry Twitter, I can't even catch up on all these tweets because I follow too many bloggers that tweet about giveaways and I avoid you like the plague unless I get a notification #sorrynotsorry
I love the blogging community, I plan to still be around, but I definitely won't be a 5 posts a week blogger because...
