What's my beef??
In a word - NOIWONTFOLLOWYOURFUCKINGBLOG.
I have been inundated with whiney follower requests this week, primarily from the aforementioned promotion platform. The standard, probably copy and pasted to a million others job, reads along the lines of - Love yours, follow mine in return? I doubt their senders have even checked this page or the others. A more likely situ reads like this; these so-called 'fans' probably clocked my friend grid on IFB and thought 'Ooh, popular' which opens them up to a honey pot of potential new readers. It reminds me of the myspace times. The whole pc4pc mantra. #Inot16nomore. Straight in the little trash can.
So, for future reference and for the sake of your unique users / traffic / followers and all those insignificant statistics. Just don't ask. It defeats the point. I am of a mature enough disposition to be able to decide for myself. Sprinkle your link in comments & tweets instead. You'll thank me for it in the long run.
Leaving the hating for the rating..
Onto the pardee - some sweet blogs I've recently discovered:
Sarah is a native born Canadian with a penchant for short hems and high collars (new best friend?). Plentiful prettiness of outfits du jour and inspiration of all sorts stream her blog roll. Admittedly, a little M.I.A as of late, delve into her archives to warrant the wait for her return.
