If you read my blog regularly, you know I do quite a lot of memes and blog hops. I do Waiting on Wednesday, Follow Friday / Book Blogger Hop, On My Wishlist and In My Mailbox. I usually skip one of those (sometimes IMM because I didn't get anything that week or FF because I don't like the question), but that still leaves me with an average of four memes and blog hops a week.
When I started blogging, I loved doing those posts because they generate traffic to my site. Now, though, that I have a base of followers (no, my blog isn't huge, but I have the feeling there's actually someone out there reading what I have to say, so it doesn't feel pointless to write my reviews), I have some doubts. The main reason I do them now is to have something to post. If I didn't do any memes, I'd only post two or three times a week - I can't read and review a book every day. Obviously, I know I don't have to post every day, but it just feels weird to me not to post at least 5 times a week.
However, I think my blog looks kind of cluttered the way it is, with so many memes, and I'm afraid they draw attention away from my "real" content.
So I'd like you guys to let me know what you think. It'd be great if you could vote on this poll and/or leave a comment if you have something longer to say about this. Thanks!
