Please don't follow me friday

Don't get me wrong. I've played along in the past and I am not knocking all the follow me friday activities that go on weekly in the blogoverse. I think they are great for people wanting to bring more readers/giveaway entrants/commenters to their blogs.

Someday I might even participate again.

BUT

I can barely keep up with all the blogs I currently follow as it is.  I don't do giveaways or product reviews.  I rarely enter giveaways. I have no interest in turning a profit.  I blog about my family, when I feel like it,  and that's about it. It's what I have time for.

So please, unless you like a lot of this:


And some of this:


feel free NOT to follow me.

Unless, of course, you really want to.  :)

To my current followers who still follow - thanks for your comments and I hope you all have a great weekend!

Truer words were never spoken. Amen to this!

I participated once and was totally overwhelmed....

Besides, I want people to follow me b/c they like me/my blog, not because they have to or because of a meme....

bluewhitelife said...

I love it :) Plus your family is awesome, hopefully mine will be that cool someday :) Apparently I have to get engaged first, though, so it might be some time

Amy said...

Hope all went well last night.. 2 more days to go..

Brian Miller said...

Manic Mother said...

Amen! And those may be the cutest pajamas ever, attached to a pretty darn cute little man as well!

BookGirlBeth said...

Connie Weiss said...

I love ALL of that!

And thank you so much for being a regular commenter at my blog. I love hearing from you and I'm so glad that we're blogging friends!

hotpants™ said...

I love your blog and all the lovely pictures of your kids. I know what you mean though. I've got enough going on.

Katie Lane said...

I feel the same way about Friday Follow... even though I do have stuff to sell. But I will NEVER unfollow you!

Tamela said...

I don't think have I have participated in a blog follow friday just on twitter though.

I will never unfollow too. I just love all your pictures!

Annie said...

I love your sincerely. I do the same sometimes participate and others no, for me having a balance is the best.

Enjoy your weekend.

Actually I have to say that I totally understand it. When you have that many stopping in on one day it does get overwhelming. I try really hard to keep a balance as well. I'd rather talk about the family.

Have a great weekend! Btw I was following you long before the hop.

This is wonderful! Right there with ya! :) I do product reviews, giveaways and enter them on other sights - but the reason I keep coming back for more - a whole lot of that on a whole lot of blogs! :) Have a great weekend!

Life with Kaishon said...

You are so fabulous :) I follow your blog because you are funny and wonderful and the kids...well, the kids are the cutest things on the planet! XO

Life with Kaishon said...

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I feel so stupid! I wasn't following your blog before. Well, I am now. And I just want you to know I hate dumb giveaways too. I do NOT want to enter for a container of water or yogurt. No thank you. I will go to the market and buy my own yogurt : )

Valerie said...

Ha! I know what ya mean! I did it a couple of weeks and wow. I really want people to follow me because they like me too. Timewise I still read all of my regular blogs (like yours!!) but really never get to comment any more. My boss has made it almost impossible to do at work so I have to wait til I'm off like now lol. Plus even on my worst days your stories and pics always make me smile!

I love your blog and the photos of your kids! I will continue to follow :)

Bliss said...

J.J. said...

I hear you. I love your photos!!! Keep it simple...do what you want to do....and you will enjoy yourself...

Kailani said...

You should definitely blog about what interests you and not just to get more followers. Otherwise, blogging because more of a job and less fun. :-)

Good for you!

wife.mom.nurse said...

oh girl! you are cracking me up :)

Love this post...it goes well with a conversation we had :)

What a wonderful time I had getting to meet you and hang out. It was great. I adore you kids! That Hannah especially tugged at my heart strings. Adorable.

I love the way it seemed so natural to get together.

You will have to stop by and see my post. I had to steal some photos from your blog because...how did I NOT get photos of us? silly me!!!

I hope you will let me know if you are ever in So. Cal again...or maybe Brian and I can meet you in Vegas if you go again :)

What was that massive drink you had?...whatever it was... I want one!

LOL :)

Yes! I love that you posted this! :-)

Dixiemom7 said...

Love this! The bloggers I actually follow are either friends of mine in "real" life or blogger friends I've come to love. I do, however, love to cruise to interesting new places occasionally. BTW - I just LOOOOVE your header!

debi9kids said...

OH! I soooooo feel the same way! It's not that I don't love new followers, but who has time for it all????

Dee said...

I'll keep on following you....I LOVE LOVE LOVE keeping up with your fun family! :)
