What You Want To Do With Your Blog But Can't
Have you ever been placed in a situation where much as you want to, you have to refuse posting items your friends or fellow bloggers requested you to post as you don't want any distractions that would dilute your blog's image that you worked so hard to build ?
Were there activities you would have wanted to undertake for your blog but again it is not in keeping with your blog's theme or image?
You are not alone? Could you imagine how a poetry blog would appear if it were sprinkled with all those blog awards? Poetry is a serious read and a blog on poetry must set the mood for its readers if they are to get absorbed in their reading experience and enjoy it. This means that distractions must be reduced at the most minimum level and those blog awards I am sorry to say are clearly distractions. Or take a Philosophy blog or a Political blog which are suppose to let their readers do some real thinking. Pepper such blogs with those fancy awards and surely their blog image will be altered. Think of the impressions of their cultivated readers who visit their blogs expecting some serious stuff only to be greeted by some kind of an award half of the blogosphere seem to have received.
The same could be said of contests. It maybe a good strategy to promote your blogs sponsoring contests but for some kind of blogs, contest could dilute the image these blogs want to project.
Bloggin Circle could be your blog's way out from such dilemna. We could run or hosts your contests. We could also acknowledge your awards in your behalf. All these services are free. No strings attached. It is one of the services we offer to blogging friends.
