My blogging journey

I’m now 3+ months into my blogging journey and I have to say that I love it. I notice that I get likes and great comments that sometimes are like dialogues. That is one of my goals with this blog! Thank you to all of you who take the time to read, like and comment. The other day I got the congratulation of having 100 subscribers on my blog. Hurray! My goal here is to have 5,000. But by then I hope I’m doing this full time as managing comments and discussions will take time. Something I’m looking forward to though! I’m also closer to 1,000 followers on twitter. That is an interesting tool though as I seem to be stuck at that number. Maybe I should read more about how to strategically use that? Then yesterday I noticed that I now have 5,200 unique viewers on Pinterest. It sounds high? I don’t know to be honest with you. What I do know is that I need to start linking my blog posts here more often as this is one way how I can increase my followers on my blog.

I’m also reading every day these “how to” on blogging.

Cate Rosales: Cate Rosales has great advice when it comes to blogging and a fantastic support group on Facebook. I recommend her- check it out. She is also offering some great courses:

Take a look! Perhaps you’ll like her too?

Melyssa Griffin is another person I strongly recommend. She runs amazing courses which I’m very tempted to sign up to! Take a look? Maybe you’ll like her too?

I know I have work ahead of me to make my blog more professional and am getting some much needed tools for that. I’ve also been thinking about going self- hosted and might very well do that in the next month. I think I will do another wish list but for my blog!

What tools and people do you think are invaluable in your blogging world?

And keep up the good work with regards to challenging yourself! I can honestly say I’ve had a tough week with work and juggling family life. Doing yoga, meditation and also gratitude list helps! And to keep my focus and goal setting straight. We all have our struggles that we have to overcome in one way or other. I find that this blog also helps! I’m doing something I truly enjoy! So something for me to be grateful of! And tomorrow already is Friday?! The weeks (life) go fast. Enjoy every minute of everyday and have an amazing (rest of the) day!
