Could I take just a minute of your time?

I need some opinions on whether or not I should make some changes here. I've noticed I really haven't been getting many downloads on my freebies lately, so I've been feeling like my stuff must really stink. Anyway I asked for opinions in some of my cafe mom groups. I only got one answer but it was suggested that I should create a second blog for all the chit chat I do and just keep this one for the freebies. Her thoughts were that people would prefer not to have to sift through everything to get to what they came here for, which is only the freebie. So, if you could take just a minute to add your opinion in the poll at the right I would really appreciate it. If you want to leave me your thoughts in a comment I would appreciate it even more. Good or bad, I want to know what my readers think.

Ann, my blog is the same way. I have a blog specifically for scraps, freebies, and pretty much everything inbetween. Honestly, I don't really care if people don't want to sift through it! LOL The thing is, it's my blog and if they don't want to sift through it all, then they don't have to in order to get the freebie! Get what I mean? At first, I didn't get many DL's at all but now since I've been doing it for awhile, I have been getting a lot more!

Also, a few suggestions to get more blog flow would be:
1)post them in the GingerScrap forum or any other scrap forums you are registered at.
2)You can start links on the side bar and put "freebies" or "QP's" or whatever, and then they can click on the link to pull up what they are looking for.
3)to get digi free and creative busy hands to pick up your freebies, you can add these tags:
digital scrapbooking freebies, gingerscraps, graham like the cracker, QP Freebie
make sure to post them just the way I have put them here or they won't pick it up!
4)Post them at DigiScrap Depot. Lots of people have found my blog through there as well!

Keep up the great work! Don't get discouraged! Just get more involved and try to meet new people. Word of mouth is the best way! Hope this helps :)

Don't give up, Sis. It takes time. If you want to draw some more attention to your blog and it's freebies though, you can post at Digishoptalk.com and digiscrapaddicts.com in their freebie section. Tons of peeps at DST. PLUS... who cares what they want to sift through...screm 'em! lol This is for your enjoyment. Oh and DST has a blog train, I post to, so every time you have a new blog post... it brings peoples attention to it
