[Editor's Note: Roni Noone explains why she's hosting fewer and fewer giveaways on her blog. It has everything to do with being respectful of her reader's eyes and time as well as pointing out the fact that she doesn't work for free. --Mel]
Honestly and frankly, I don’t have time to peddle other people’s products for free. I have more than enough content ideas that I’m actually backlogged with things to blog about. My site is very personal in nature and every post I write directly relates to my niche and the mission of my blog. I also don’t simply work for free because someone asked. And yes, writing a post, hosting a giveaway, and promoting it, is work.
