Chewy.com Ads

We don't want ta seem all grumpyfunky, but it seems like half the blog friends we visit lately are pushing Chewy.com.  Don't get us wrong, we get our foods from there too.  We like them.

But we don't visit our friends ta read ads, ya know?

Fair enough. I think it's important to provide bloggers with feedback.

I agree. Blogging has changed so much lately with all the reviews. We are still sort of on our blogging break so not visiting anyone very often at the moment, but when we were visiting every day we were finding so many reviews of the same products that we were passing those blogs by.
There seem to be two types of bloggers now, those of us who like to write about our adventures and those who do it for gain, either monetary or in goods.
I have no problem with that, it is their choice. We also have the choice whether to visit them or not when they do their reviews, and I have to say it is usually not.

We do have ads, caring for 15 ferals can be expensive.

I've done a handful of 'ads' here or there and at first I was really thrilled to be asked to do it. But, really that is not what our blog is, it's a very simple photography blog of the cats and how they go about their daily lives. I try not to go into anything that isn't floofy, it's their stories and for myself I think that is the best way to keep it. I don't mind at all directions others take, some people need to have the extra promotions to help feed and maintain.

It's not just Chewy... We do get tired of ads although we understand why bloggers do reviews but still--so many of our friends are all doing the same thing.

it is nice to hear about new products and get an idea if it would work for us in seeing how different kitties respond. it's hard to leave a note sometimes when everybuddy reviews the same thing. We don't want to say the same thing all the time.

We don't do ads but we appreciate your honest opinion!!

You're not wrong. We prefer to post cute pics and write silly stories, or share medical issues; we generally skip reviews. They just aren't interesting to us. Some do it wayyyyyy too often, as well.

We are sorry that you get a monthly ad from Chewy when you visit us. We are actually allowed to choose 2 products per month,but would need to do separate posts so we only pick one. With 13 cats, it is nice to get something for free for them to test out and Chewy is great, if they were not great, then we wouldn't be involved with them. We will try to keep any other reviews to a minimum.

Sorry you feel that way. We like sharing our experiences with different foods, treats, and toys with our friends.

We don't have any ads but we appreciate those who've taken the time to let us know about different products. If they benefit from doing that too, more power to 'em!

Well, we agree that we'd rather not read ads and stuff, but we unnerstand that for some of our furiends the income is impawtant, as blogging is partly a business venture. We usually read the reviews if we happen to visit, but the troof is the Human is so overwhelmed with work a lot of the time we don't visit nearly as much as we used to. It's something we is looking forward to doing more of when she finally stops working! Love you all (well, especially YOU, Lambie.) XOXOXO

Me purreciates your input. We luv Chewy and was shoppin' there befur we were bloggers. So to be asked to share them with others was really swell. And since mommy doesn't have much money it offen helps feed us throughout da month. It's how me got a purresent fur me's birthday last year and how mommy fed the ever picky Lexi befur she went to heaven. We do try to keep those at a minimum tho' cuz we don't care fur ad after ad after ad either. And ifin we do reviews fur other stuffs we try to always include da oppurrtunity fur our readers to get one through a give away. Anyways, just thought we'd let ya' know why we do it. Mommy says ifin we didn't need da purroduct or da money, we wouldn't do them at all. But, You will only ever read da truth on our blog. Even ifin we don't like it, we're gonna post that. We'll never tell you we like somethin' we don't. We purreciate all our readers and furiends and hope you continue to visit us.

Luv ya'

Gostei dos desenhos de vocês!
Tenham uma ótima semana!

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

Well, we don't 'do ads' nor do we plan to, but sometimes it is interesting to read what is out there.
But no we don't like reading about the same product too many times, MOL!
But like the others said, they have their reasons, so that is OK with us.
We just do our blog fur fun, and if it stops being fun, well, then we would not be doing it...

There is the delete or next option...same like on TV's if we need to:)
