A Christmas Competition, Courtesy of Yours Truly!
As you may have noticed the Brink of Bedlam has been as chaotic as ever this year – you have been treated to toy reviews, family life rants, photography articles, recipes (sane and insane) and creative writing excerpts. I once read somewhere that a blog is a direct reflection of the author’s life – well I must be very random and erm…I have a broken link. Now, now, don’t you dare laugh!
I have to admit, the one thing I love more than anything is hearing that you’ve enjoyed the posts, or that they’ve made you think or laugh. It makes it all worthwhile. In 2012 I want to carry on writing and making the bloggy journey worthwhile…..so I’m asking you for a little feedback in return for the chance to win £20 worth of Amazon vouchers. This competition is only for current blog subscribers and UK residents (although I’ll make an exception for my mates @Slightlydoolaly and @Naviguesser)
All you have to do is comment constructively on the last year’s blogging exploits. What did you enjoy most, what would you like to see more or less of for example? More comps? More reviews? Less reviews? More creative writing? Less waffling? More recipes, normal or ridiculous? More link ups? More or less memes? Topical articles on parenting issues or articles on whatever topic is roaming around my head at the time. Should the presentation be improved, should I focus on just one topic and do the ‘niche blogging’ thing? Should I write shorter posts? What do you think?
I’d particularly like to hear from people who haven’t commented before, there’s 124 of you in total and each and every opinion counts – and of course, every person who comments will be put in the draw which will be drawn randomly on the 12th December. Obviously any and every comment will be noted, but pretty please don’t just say ‘ I think it’s crap’or ‘I think it’s good’ without saying why.
Without meaning to sound over the top, since having left work six years ago, this blog has been my biggest and most challenging project – apart from raising my two kids of course, that goes without saying. My little blog means the world to me and I want it to be as good as it can possibly be. Your help will be invaluable!
