My Blog. My Rules.
This is going to sound very self centered, but I like my blog.

I do.

I know others do too. It humbles me that people like what I have to say. My ramblings and off the wall posts are actually read by more than my mother! The best is when I sometimes get a comment left by the author of blog that I frequent. When I get those comments, I sometimes feel like a celebrity stopped by and said "hi".

It's crazy. I know.

But I have to draw the line at people who come by my blog for the first time ever and ask me to vote for them in some online contest or participate in a give-away. While I appreciate them stopping by my blog, I have to wonder--did they even read what I had to write?

Doubtful.

While I'm guilty of following blogs but not always commenting--I do read the blogs on my blog roll every single day. So, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say that it is possible that this person has been reading my blog and now felt comfortable enough to leave a comment.

But I doubt it. Because if you're in-it-to-win-it, your focus is on the prize.

So, I've now turned on the comment moderation. It may take a bit before your comment may appear, but I promise that I cherish every single one of you who come by to say hi. As my friend Tracy says, "....it makes me feel popular."

But if you're asking for a vote in some contest--and I don't know you or don't read your blog--I'll make you a deal. You go to my team's 3-day page and make a donation to the Breast Cancer 3-day 60 miles walk. If I see your donation on one of our donation honor rolls, then I'll toss a vote your way.

You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours, right?

LOL!

I'm starting to get more and more "requests" and "spam" in my comment section. This is a great idea.

Hope it works!! E

I just had to delete seven comments this morning from someone who felt the need to advertise all over my blog! So I understand the need for comment screening sometimes :)

Whaaaa??!!!

Does this mean I'm not getting your vote for stickiest, doghaired covered blog that was started on a Tuesday between 9months and 1 year ago by a mom with more photos of her kid than good sense?

Damn. With your vote, I totally could have come in second on that one...

:) (love ya -*wink*)

Great post! I too was wondering after I voted if I would ever get another comment! We must of had the same visitor.

The Daily Dean Chronicals said...

Totally AGREE! I got the same one! I know I write for myself and if others want to read..GREAT! But don't stop by asking for a vote! I have enough people in my life that ask for so much and I get little in return, I don't need you doing it on MY blog! Thanks for saying what I was thinking! Happy Wendsday!
