Quick Update

Hi everybody. I know I have not posted in a very long time and I'm sorry for not doing so. I'm currently thinking a few things through, but for now, I've decided this.
I am not going to abandon this blog, but I believe that after I finish all of the reviews I've been asked to write in exchange for free products, I will not write another sponsored post. Instead, I will update rather infrequently, but with products I've purchased myself and feel like sharing my experience about.
This type of blogging I'm currently doing has been feeling ridiculous. Each group giveaway post is practically like bloggers begging for follows, likes, views, etc. Essentially, social media attention and such. So, with 183 posts on giveaways, how low have I gone? Each sponsored review has been completely honest as I've always said in the beginnings or ends of my posts, but I don't know how many people believe my words since it was free to me. For all the other posts, they are probably either blogger ops or some sort of post where I was trying to make money, whether for our blog or, let's face it, me/my family. The blogger ops were to get attention for the group giveaways I later posted about and the sponsored posts/affiliated-linked posts were quite a bit of a low for me. I'm sorry about that.
Anyway, the main point I'm making is this. After I finish the reviews I'm obligated to write (I have 9 left I believe… yes, I was being lazy. I'm sorry.), I will not write another sponsored post. I will write non-sponsored reviews instead. Like this blog was intended to be like.
Of course, this post isn't intended to bash any bloggers or anything like that because frankly, that would be stupid. If it's offensive to anyone, I'm sorry for making you feel that way when it wasn't intended to hurt anyone.
