I think the bloggy carnival is a fun way to increase traffic to your blog, and see what other ideas people have for their blog.
However, I am taking a stand.
I was a new blogger two carnivals ago and that one and the most recent one in April, I was a mad woman. I entered more than 700 contests and guess what I won? NADA! Not a thing. The carnival took away from my time with my family because I was busy entering contests when I should have been playing with my husband and kids.
So here's my take one things.
I think that if you're so inclined, enter to your heart's content. You can even use the button above if you like.
But I will only be entering the contests of those already in my reader. I feel that I am truly being more genuine that way. And that way if I win, it will be from one of the wonderful people I have already come to know in the blogosphere.
Have a fun time and if you win something, let me know. I will live vicariously through you.
