So you wrote, your posted photos, ideas, questions. Sometime you ranted. And you and your three followers (you know, your husband, you best friend and some stranger who randomly started following you one day) seemed to enjoy it.
On good days, you didn't care that you had less than a handful of followers, but on bad days, after you read other blogs with 40, 60 or over 400 followers you became discouraged.
My question to you is:
I'll go first.How did you keep going, what drove you to keep blogging, when you had a small audience?
And share what helped you get your blog noticed and find more followers....
I started blogging just to get down the funny, crazy, and sometimes frustrated moments of my life. I had no idea about how huge the blogging world was or how it worked. And I blogged like no one was reading. I had a couple of followers. But the more I read others blogs, the more I learned. The more I shared, the better I got. I followed other blogs, they responded in kind. But the big kick in the butt came when I found a teeny tiny little site called Mom Bloggers Club. It opened up a whole world of bloggers that I joined, commented on and asked them to check my blog out. From there my audience grew and the amount of blogs I read grew.
From there I have found that my followers (that is such a weird word to read after "my") were more than anonymous readers, they were as interested in my life as I was in theirs. It inspired me to keep going, to keep getting better.
Okay, your turn!
