I started blogging October 2, 2008. My first post was inspired by a blog blitz challenge put out by Stacy Julian. I made the mini-album and posted a link to my new blog on Stacy's blog. That first post got ELEVEN comments over the course of the month - and funny thing is - only one of those people follows me today.... my mother!
Most of my posts in 2008 had between 0 (zilch, none, nada) and 2 comments. The comments were from my sister, my best friend, and a fellow blogger - all of whom rarely even visit my blog anymore!
My posts were all over the board in terms of content. I thought I didn't mind the lack of comments because I was really blogging for myself. Capturing thoughts, stories, sharing layouts and photos. And honestly, some of those early posts were really GOOD.
Just for fun, I'm reposting a layout that I first posted back in November of 2009 - random facts about me. So those of you new or relatively new to my blog can get to know me really quickly:
My first post for BFS was/is spot on. Beyond a personal journal and a space to share my creativity, I had to admit that I blogged for the connection and the validation. And I acknowledged that I ADORE comments!
Most of my loyal followers came from that first class. I truly love the friendships I have made!
I'm hoping in this class to get back to making sure that my posts have meaningful content, that I'm continuing to be relevant to my loyal followers, and hopefully even make some new connections!
I ADORE comments (did I mention that?) and I always try to return visits to anyone who leaves a comment on my blog.
So now I'd like to get to know you all a little better! Please take a moment to answer this little poll about:
Why do YOU blog?????
You can check off as many answers as apply!
And feel free to leave me comments too. You know I just ADORE comments!
