who actually reads my makeup blog

I am holding a giveaway on my blog, and i've accumulated ALOT of attention for it, but i can't help but feel apprehensive about it, because i know all these people [only few are actually beauty bloggers] are in it for the freebies, and not actually reading my posts.

I may not be the best blogger, but i do put alot of effort writing my posts on blogger, i put my heart and soul and edit it as well as i can and it kinda hurts to know that not many people read my blog. they join one time and thats it. I just feel taken advantage of.

You'd be surprised how often I get excited about blogs I see only once :)

Don't feel bad because you have a good heart and that's good karma, no matter who the prize(s) go to. To be honest, I didn't enter the contest because there are SO many people vying for the win!

Blogs are a funny thing...I have a personal blog myself that lays kind of abandoned for a while now because school is the boss of me :/
When I did write, I got so much traffic! I surprised myself :)

So I think, your giveaway is for the purpose of publicity (which is working wonderfully). Sometimes you will get people who come because they are treating it as a lottery and sometimes you get people who are genuinely beauty-blog-crazy. Don't take it personally; the only things you should take personally are those things not related to the internet :)

I'm not a beauty blogger btw. Showing one's idea of beauty takes too much (public) courage!

btw, my REAL blog is not the one on my profile (which is kind of a support system for my broke ass student self).

You could be like my fashionable blog friend! see me at

Dear Aero,

Thank you for the lovely and encouraging comment. I know i can't ask for any more than publicity in this day and age. But it just feels like a kick in the teeth sometimes that they enter a gieveaway and you never see them again. I mean. 77 comments and around 20 of them are proper blogs, all the others seem like only blogs dedicated to only winning blog giveaways. Thats the only substance in their blogs.

I guess i'm a little selfish. Blogs are for your own creative pleasure and it should never be more than that.

Thanks again.

p.s: must check your blog out!

...if you check my blog out, you will have to promise not to smirk. I seriously haven't updated in months. MONTHS! That's true shame for any blogger but I promise if you go back a few blog posts, you'll find some good posts :)

awww sweetheart, dont get so down about it. I've read a few posts from your blog and I quite liked it!
giveaways do encourage me to look at blogs but if i dont like the blog i often dont even follow it or enter the giveaway. but that might be just me
anyway
KEEP BLOGGING!
