The Lipstick League - week of 4.25.11

Welcome to the latest installment of The Lipstick League!

This week's Question of the Week:

What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about blogging?

G's Answer: My least favorite thing about blogging is dealing with plagiarism. I hate to see my own content stolen, but it also breaks my heart when I see other bloggers have to deal with their content being stolen. It takes a lot of time and effort to take photos, edit them, write posts and try to be thoughtful and thorough when writing a review. So to have someone post content they did not create into their own blog, and pass that content off as their own, is not only pathetic, but it's despicable. People who steal content without giving credit and linkbacks to the original source do a disservice to real bloggers, to themselves and, most importantly, to their readers.

My favorite part about blogging? YOU. Plain and simple. I know most of what I know today because YOU have been kind enough to share your wisdom and knowledge with me. Not for one second do I take that for granted. In short, I love you and I thank you.

If you're a blogger, I'd love to hear about YOUR favorite and least favorite things about blogging!


  1. My least favorite part about blogging is layout issues. When I change the layout of my blog, I hate that the content of my blog becomes out of whack. Probably wouldn't be an issue if I was more of a computer whiz:-)

    Favorite part of blogging is just writing (typing). I went to school for journalism, so it is nice to be able to put my views out there (on my own terms) and share with others my passions.

  2. My least favourite is, frankly, when nobody reads it, ha.

    My favourite is just... writing. Plus having cute layouts help!

  3. My least favourite is similar to yours. I don't like some of the deception I see out there, whether it be stolen content, pictures or even fake giveaways to gain followers. It can be disheartening to see these people prosper & be sent products by companies after gaining followers thru their deception ways.

    My favourite is the followers that you get to know. The ones who you get to know thru the blogosphere and the ones you share information with and get information from in return. Love that!

  4. Has anyone heard of Sally Hansen releasing sometime in June a crackel nailpolish line...Im so excited and hope for June to come soon. I love your blog
