There has been a lot of stink lately saying that deal bloggers are a waste of bloggy space. We seem to suck the life out of the ever narrow blogosphere. I think some think of deal bloggers as the used car salesmen of the virtual written channels.
But are we just that? Used car salesmen? I personally don’t think so. Yes, ok I will give you that there are a bajillion deal bloggers out there. It’s a highly competitive field. Yes, I will give you that there are a lot out there that don’t know what the heck they are doing. (I like to think they just haven’t learned yet )Does that really warrant comparing deal bloggers to garbage? Not really.
I do post a lot of deals on Crunchy Frugalista, but I don’t really consider myself a deal blogger. Honestly, I am not sure what I really consider myself. I am just me. Hopefully that entices you in rather than leads you screaming and running in the other direction, alas I expect some will bolt.
I was recently a part of a Twitter retweeting program, which shall remain nameless, that seems to have it out for deal bloggers because our garbage was clogging up the feed.
The odd part is that you could set people on manual and not Tweet their stuff. I guess that was too complicated for some.
Some even went so far to say that those of us that are a little verbose, ok I know I am VERY verbose (lots of words), are bad parents, but that is a whole other blog post.
So here I am writing what I hope you see to be quality content. To prove that deal bloggers are more than clipping coupons, and use keywords such as “sale”, “free”, and “deal”. Does that mean you are anymore likely to read my stuff? Am I allowed to not be sectioned off as a useless waste of virutal space? Ahhhh, I don’t care even if I am not allowed. I am me, and I am going to continue to me even if some think my deals are nothing by space garbage
