I just crossed my three year blog anniversary over Christmas. When I first started, I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it and became addicted! Over time, many of my wonderful blogging friends took breaks from the blog world (some left altogether). Even though I missed them, I blogged all the more. I rarely can pull myself away from typing out blog drafts and visiting other blogs. I mean, what if I miss something awesome?
I’m sure you all have much busier lives than mine. However, I’ve been known to get lost in a blog fog when I should be doing other things … like writing.
As a result, I have made a blogging resolution for the new year. We shall see if I can stay on track. I’m not going to take a break because I wouldn’t be successful at staying away. I am going to try something different though. I’ll be limiting myself a little more. I’ve recently cut back from posting twice a week to once a week. Sometimes I may add one in between if something comes up I’d like to share. I will only visit the blogs of those who visit here. I know that sometimes we don’t always have something to say and we just click ‘like.’ But, we can always tell the difference between those who just leave a drive by ‘like’ and those who actually click to visit our blog. Those will be the ones I will be visiting in return.
I’m also going to try twitter and facebook a little more. I really don’t like the other forms of social media, but I’ll need to spread my wings when my novel is published anyway (in 2015 I plan on success).
Ever since the first day of this year, I’ve been getting more clicks. I think they must be from a main-switchboard computer or something. The clicks are always on the same several posts from July of 2014. Anyone else have something similar happen? Do you have any thoughts on this particular phenomenon?
I’m humbled and grateful for those of you who take the time out of your busy lives to visit me here. It means so very much to me and I thank you. Blessings to you in this new year.
