On a blog? That question was asked recently by someone and there were various responses about what people would like to see. This got me to thinking....*okie looks around and yells* SHUT UP! I KNOW THAT IS DANGEROUS!
*okie sighs and rolls eyes* Anyway...I got to wondering what my readers would like to see more of and then I decided that I really don't care. Not that I don't appreciate my readers, I do! It's nice to know that people like to see what I make and occasionally leave a comment. But the thing about my blog, and I stress MY BLOG *okie doesn't want others to think she is referring to anyone else and they way they blog* is that it is for ME. I do this for me...totally selfish I know but yep, it is true! I now have an almost 4 year record of my paper crafting and how it has evolved over time. I can look back and see where I have made improvements over the years and laugh at some things I felt quite proud of at the time and now think "DEAR GOD WHAT WAS I THINKING?".
I have been approached by numerous companies and websites about advertising on my blog, offering commissions or products. I always decline. Now I will review a product but if I don't like it, I don't write on my blog that I do like the product or company. I give them the option of me not blogging about it or writing a negative review. They always just say never mind. Now why would I pass up the opportunity to make a little change you ask? Pure and simple...I do NOT want anyone dictating to me what I can post or write about. I own myself, no one owns me.
When I write my opinions about things, even life in general, I some times get nasty little emails or comments and have been called some bad words *okie laughs and thinks of all the bad words she calls herself sometimes* and I don't really mind, after all, people are just voicing their opinions as well. But at least I know I have been honest and forthright about my feelings and thoughts and since this is MY blog I can do that.
So sorry guys, if you ever think I will ask what you would like to see or read on my blog and I will craft or write what you are wanting me to, then you got a long wait coming. I can't craft, think, or feel for anyone else but myself. But I honestly do have to admire those who can ask others what to craft and are able to do so. I just shut down and think "I don't want this pressure, I can't handle this crap". So basically you are stuck with me and my chitty attitude, crappy projects and independent nature. Love me or hate me, you gotta respect the truth that I offer! And if ya don't...*okie shrugs*...well ya know what you can do with it!! *okie falls out chair laughing*
BUT...I certainly hope if nothing else I can be entertaining for someone other than just myself. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind laughing at myself but it is so much better to have someone laugh at you...errr, or is that with you???
