Coming to a Year

Do I come off as whiny? Do my words emit a certain odor you guys are just too polite to say anything about? Am I starting to sound like a robot?
What do you do if your blog is starting to feel stagnant or when no new people are coming in? Does it bother you?

There should be more stuff I do with this but I don’t know. I tried to incorporate suggestions from you but I somehow missed something. It doesn’t feel like there is much life here no matter what I try and I doubt it is just me that feels this way. But what is missing?

My official blog anniversary is on June 14th, a Tuesday. I am going to try to start a give-away then, though I am not sure what it will be. It will end in early July so it gives everyone time to enter who wants to.

After July I might try to make more changes. If it doesn’t work, I can at least say I did what I could. I promised myself (and my mother) I would keep this blog for a year so that promise has been met. What happens beyond the give-away? Only time will tell.

I am so grateful to have met you guys and wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do so without this. So many of you are just so talented, good in your fields, and so kind that I feel insanely honored just to know you’re out there. It has been worth it because of you guys alone.


  1. I think for many of us, the followers come slowly and by word of mouth. But don't forget, there are people who see it, aren't following, and don't comment. I think you have a great blog.

  2. I don't think you come off as whiny or that your blog is bad. Getting new followers is difficult snd often involves a stroke of luck. You should blog because you like doing it. I wouldn't worry about the numbers because they aren't the most important part.

  3. Thanks ladies! Yeah, it is difficult. It is partially my fault because I am too intimidated to jump into other people's blogs and comment if they have hundreds of followers.

  4. So many people have so much on their plates that it is often difficult to keep up with much of anything that is considered a "hobby" or "extra-curricular" of any type. What you have here is very good, and often encouraging; don't let the numbers fool you.
