Blogger Bummer

It's a real bummer when a blogger you like goes all commercial and there's no longer any long essay style posts on mothering or challenges or struggles or any of the other things that made you enjoy their writing in the first place.

Instead, when all I read are reviews or give-aways there's no reason to go there anymore because the reason you started reading the blog is gone.  I try to put myself in their shoes: as a blogger becomes really prolific, I'm sure it's scary to keep writing about the personal things because your on-line writing is read by so many people in your real life.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love the chance to review something here or there (and I have reviewed a couple things in the past), but I miss connecting on-line with the women behind the reviews . . .

I miss it when you don't post very often, too. Different than what you're pointing out, I realize, but you should know your readers miss you, too!

I totally agree. So many bloggers I've read for years, have lost the "voice" and realness that drew me to them in the first place. It kinda feels like the end of a book series.
