So, I’m a couple months away now from my One Year Blogiversary. It feels like it’s been a long and hard road, having many ups and downs, and many days I feel like giving up on my blogging journey, but my husband’s inspiration keeps me going. I took up blogging as a hobby and really enjoy sharing information about design, writing about my home projects, home renovations and home ideas in an effort to inspire others.
The part about blogging, I find the most disheartening is the lack of engagement from readers. I realize most of you don’t know me, and you don’t owe me anything. But if you do like the content, if you are inspired by what you read, if you have taken one of my suggestions and acted on it (in any way), I would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment letting me know.
Feeling appreciated lifts people up, and knowing we are making a difference motivates us to continue. I truly appreciate each and every comment left, and every “like” received. I also realize success shouldn’t be measured by how many “likes” one receives but I would be happy knowing if what I am writing is impactful at all, which will motivate me to continue. I would also like to hear your thoughts about posts you would be interested in reading about, I am open to suggestions.
Appreciation and Recognition are so important to everyone, including bloggers, so please show a blogger some love 🙂
