Thank You – Dear Follower & Supporters

Dear All,

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

  1. I’m so glad you’re enjoying blogging. Never forget that it’s there to be enjoyed, if it ever feels like a chore you should step away for a bit. As for blogging schedule I don’t have one, I blog as and when I feel like it 🙂 So don’t worry if you don’t want to commit to a specific time.
    I hope you continue to enjoy yourself and your community keeps growing. I’ve only gone into facebook and that was after a few months of blogging, wow you’ve tackled all the social media at once, I might have to ask for tips :).

    1. Thanks for your comments and advice. Oh my , honestly i am no social media expert.. it hard. You could me naive or stupid to go on all social media at one. My figures are not worth mentioning when it comes to pinterst, bloglovin abd facebook. But it is okay cause i think i would explode. I probably took on too much too soon and thats why i might be overwhelmed more often than i rather be. But wordpress share buttons make it easier. Thanks

      1. Yes, I did read one author’s blog where he said that the way to tackle social media is to do it slowly, so that’s the method I’m doing. I’m getting more comfortable with facebook so next step twitter!! 🙂

        Are you sharing your individual posts or have you set up wordpress to do it for you? Sorry, I didn’t visit your blog (only been reading in wordpress reader) do you have a facebook page?

      2. I wrote you a response and my stupid computer decide to have moment and I lost it all. Ahhh. FB I have a page, check out my follow me button – right side of blog. I think I am called thoughtsnlifeblog1. I keep my blog fb separate from my private. I manually push up to fb cause I could figure out how to on WP and I decided I want to control that feed to FB. Where as twitter it is a direct feed with several followups in the day. I think WP makes it really easy to link to twitter, facebook, googleplus, pinterest. But instagram – because instragram dont want direct links with WP (I asked the happiness engineers) it make instagram hard . Instagram is hard work… and not sure if I am making way, but I have a decent following. FB for me is a bit of weird flop i think. The post are being read, but the page is not being liked. Anyway, I aint to worried about that. I want to get instagram working , bloglovin and pinterest sorted.

        Actually, i wanted to ask you about amazon uk – reviews – I might email you separately.

        I think Social media is a little easier cause WP has made it easy and the rest you do from the phone.

        tc speak later Bella

      3. I liked your page on Facebook :). Don’t worry about not having many likes there. My page doesn’t have many either. Setting up blog posts with Facebook is easy and you can choose if a post will be shared or not. They are shared by default but i think you can select a post’s share buttons to opt out…Ive never tried it though :o! Lol
        As for amazon, ask away either here or you can email me on :). 18 months ago I was clueless about reviews but now I’ve become an expert, I think :). Whatever the question please do ask :):)
