I have had my blog "Dedicated to promoting handmade items from around the internet." for over 2 1/2 years now. The hardest part of it is getting seller to make a submission. It's hard for me to understand why no one wants FREE promotion. So I am taking a poll. Would you please take a few seconds and vote for me to continue or quit.

Hi Zizzybob.
Talking for a purely personal point of view, I think I had to edit the picture or something to submit it, I remember the one time I did it took me quite a while to do everything requested and I did not get any response so I did not do it again.  It is a lovely idea and generous of you though.

Christine, You once attempted to join in one of my Linky partys. There was no subscribe button at that time so I didn't know I had any replys here. I assumed if anyone had a problem or submission they would contact me on my blog, or my email.  Did you ever try to make a submission for a feature? If so, I never got one.

Right now I am simply asking people to visit my blog and vote on whether to keep it open or shut it down. It requires nothing more then hitting the yes or no button.

As for making a submission to be featured, there are a multitude of ways to contact me and make a suggestion. No one from Artyah ever has.

I did not have a problem as such as I think I succeeded, just remember it taking me a long time.  No, I don't remember doing a submission for a feature or anything.  I cannot answer as to whether or not to keep your blog, that is totally up to you , sometimes I stumble across a blog that catches my eye but I don't seek them out.  There are a few sites I visit regularly such as this one, yarning and a photography one but that is about it really.

I think the only person that can tell you to keep or close your blog is you.
You are the one that has to write out the topics and maintain it.

I don't have a blog and don't visit any blogs unless someone links to one and I am interested in the topic........I read it and then move on.

Perhaps you are all miss understanding me. There is no point in promoting myself or anyone else if no one wants to see it. So it doesn't matter much what I think..... what does everyone else think? Oh and BTW, no one, I mean NO ONE has submitted an item for free promotion in 2 years.

Hi Pat, there is an email address on the right sidebar of my blog. You may have to scroll down a little bit, but its there. Thanks for you vote.

BTW the artyah link on the bottom of you post takes me to an error page.

We would LOVE free advertising.... Only YOU can decide whether to continue the blog. If you choose to continue, we would be happy to make a submission. Just let us know how.

@singalongsoap, Once again I repeat "There is no point in promoting myself or anyone else if no one wants to see it" so I need some sort of input to continue.
As for submissions, you would have to visit the blog and scroll down to the "Submission" statement.

I voted. How do you get subscribers to your blog? Do you ask for submissions from other selling venues? I voted close it down since in two years you have not received replies. I have a blog but have pretty much stopped posting since it gets very little response. To much work for no return.
