So I've been participating in a lot of blog hops lately and have found some really fantastic and interesting blogs out there. I've also found a surprising number of people with an unnatural attachment to cats(you know who you are).
Here's the thing. If you know people have a fixed amount of time to visit X number of blogs, do you have to make it so darn difficult to navigate yours? Some of the blogs made me feel like this guy,
Don't get me wrong, there were some wonderful bloggers who acknowledged how valuable my time was and didn't even ask me to follow their blog in order to enter for prizes. I followed each and every one of them. Just so you don't think I'm a total fill in the blank, I also followed some of the more "difficult" blogs because the content was great, and others because OMG! I HAD TO HAVE THAT PRIZE!
I know the idea of hops are to increase your followers, I get it, but you shouldn't piss people off that are visiting for the first time, should you?
