I wanted to express my sincerest Thank You to all of those who have been following me since I started on 7th March 2016 until now and into the future.
The blog is “organically” growing, slowly and comfortably for me. I branched out into Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Bloglovin and Pinterest in May 2016 and gained more followers via those social media outlets. I started to try to blog more frequently. I also set up a gmail account – yet another learning curve.
I am still figuring out what to post, testing out a few different ideas here and there. I still haven’t mastered what my editorial calendar should be like? When to post? What time? What topic? When to read others blogs, when to comment? When to to Tweet and Instagram? It seems like you have to do this everyday otherwise -!! I tried to be smart by using my Smartphone,well what can I say between the wifi and the smart phone slowness, I am left wanting to scream many times. Hey ho! Just sharing some of the blogging joys I have the pleasure of entertaining.
Sometimes, I think the WordPress Stats page is fibbing, it says Monday is my best day – well, I am not sure? It say 8pm is my best time – huh? Anyway, I continue on regardless. Oh yeah, and my twitter numbers on WP Stats page keep getting out of sync with twitter; I keep on having to disconnect and reconnect the share to get the right number? I have mentioned it to the happiness engineers but need to again. My numbers are SOOO Small – I can notice the twitter numbers on wordpress stats page are wrong – lol!!
The word press community is beautifully supportive I feel like a have a new family.
Twitter is an interesting world, but enjoyable. Likewise Instagram , Pinterest , Bloglovin and Facebook. Don’t get the wrongly impression here, my follower numbers are small, sweet and manageable. And it is enjoyable to be on all platforms and to receive comments, likes and re-tweets.
I am not a writer by any means. That is, why March and April were “luke – warm ” starts -deliberately, I wanted to test myself – can I write something new each time? Am I motivated enough?
I am still struggling, I think I have a lot to say, but sometimes I feel am I repeating myself? I was so glad when I came across the ‘Morning Pages’ youtube video in Feb 2016 – it helps unblock creative types ( I have yet to believe I am a creative type) See my blog post The Power of Journaling for the Morning Pages Video. I don’t do morning pages all the time but it does help when I do. I never follow everything to the letter, I follow the principle.
I happy that I started to blog it is a good way meet new people, learn different topics, respect different opinions, grow myself on topics I might not normally read and seeing all the beautiful writing styles and passions out there is hugely inspiring and motivating. It has opened me up to a new world. I am happy that I am on a learning curve because it is always good to learn .
I simply want to say a BIG THANK YOU To everyone for following me, to the older and new followers on all platforms, thank you for your support it means a lot to me.
A special Thank you to the word press community of writers for the support, guidance and comments. I love your comments and I love to read your blogs.
Wishing everyone success and happiness.
Kind Regards Bella
