This week's #vlogmom prompt comes from Rajean over at B Cause I Said So. Rajean asked us, "What are your top 3 loves and top 3 pet peeves with blogging?"

Watch this video, and see what I had to say. . .

  1. For each vlog I watch on this topic, I become more excited and interested to learn what everyone has to say on this subject of vlogging and blogging. Honestly, I might have to pat myself on the back because so far, each post offers helpful feedback to other bloggers, brands, PR reps, those interested in starting their own blog and doing it successfully. I love your follow up question at the end asking if you read blogs, what is your takeaway - why do you? I also loved learning learning about why and how you started your site. Solid advice, my friend, and I'll add, I'm so happy to have met you at a blog conference. Part of my favorite things about this business of ours!

  2. I couldn't help but shake my head in agreement with all of these. Especially the emails for free advertising. Blogging takes time and money, just like any other business, so we should be treated as such when it comes to advertising within our business.

    1. It just seems to be on the rise in my email box. . .and granted, I am growing so I guess that's a good sign. . .but now there are the "follow-up" emails. . ."Did you get my first email asking you to put a blurb on your blog for free?" - LOL

  3. UGH I just got a message on Facebook from someone telling me Hey I emailed you twice and sent you a note on Twitter about my new app. I get it, you want buzz but take a hint!

    1. Melinda, I had an author call me and just jump into her spiel. Never mind if I were in the middle of something or the like. Bah!

  4. Great list! I admire bloggers who do this full time! I feel like I can barely eek out a few good posts per week. Daily? I am not worthy!

  5. Sadly, too many bloggers are not taken seriously.
    My husband doesn't always see the monetary rewards of what I do.
    But when the elliptical machine showed up - he said, "Nice score, babe."

  6. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .

    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites
    for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into
    it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
