And I've come up with a few rules and here's three:
1. Stop clicking on free stuff. Maybe even stop following blogs that offer free stuff. Thanks to a couple of thoughtless keystrokes I now get a spam phone call each night, and at least a couple of spam snail-mails each week. Good thing I'll be moving and leaving my landline in the spring but in the meantime ...
2. I've stopped following almost all blogs that don't offer a full blog post in their feed. I follow way too many blogs now and rarely click on them individually unless I know them personally or I'm compelled to comment, which isn't often (sorry). I just don't have that much time, and I'm not a pro-blogger. If you didn't know, there's an option somewhere around here which allows you to post your entire blog post into the feed, so I can enjoy it in my reader without having to individually click each blog. If you haven't set this up because you're intentionally trying to get me to click on you, sorry. Goodbye.
3. I added something to my sidebar that (I thought) explicitly stated that I'm not accepting links, swaps, guest posts, etc. yet I'm still getting emails a few times a week. Now I'm being a hypocrite because I'm assuming these
Thanks for reading.
Seriously, Karissa ;)
