Unsolicited Followers & a Thank You!

You know what's pretty great? When I'm going about my day and I get a notification on my phone that I have a new follower on one of my blog's pages. Or a comment on a post I've written. Or when I log into BlogLovin to find I have new readers. Especially if it's during a time when I've been too busy to put myself out there. If I haven't had the chance to Facebook network, tweet, host a recent giveaway or comment on other blogs as much as I'd like. It means that someone stumbled upon this place and found it interesting enough to maybe read again. 

 If you're a fellow blogger, you know this takes time. Lots of it. More than it looks like. More than most of us would like to admit! But we still do it. Something about it gives us satisfaction...an outlet....friendship.

No one blogs for no one to read. I've had real life friends and acquaintances compliment me on my blog before. Ones I had no idea even read here. It's pretty darn cool. During a text conversation with a close friend I mentioned my upcoming post on essential oils since she had been asking about them. "Oh, yay! I love your blog!". Wait, what? Someone else once told me that she stayed up one night catching up here and that she loved it. Just out of the blue. How big of a compliment is that?! Especially since she happens to have a great blog of her own!

My current blogging view

This is all a big learning process and I still have so much to work and improve on. Having someone come back though...it's nice. It makes it worth it. So if you're one of them, THANK YOU! Thank you for thinking this place is worth the read and that there's reason enough to come back. I appreciate y'all so much! 

If you read here already or if you just stumbled upon this space, feel free to follow along!


 Now,  I just shared five links up there and it's Friday, I'm linking up for Five on Friday and the Friday Blog Hops!

Happy weekend!

We have dance recital dress rehearsal and parent meeting at 9:30 am on Saturday. We don't do early. Yes, that's early for us to be anywhere considering it's normally when we wake up! Should be fun. On the plus side....longer Saturday! 

with, Amy & Karli

  1. I recently started following your blog and I love it. You are right about all the time and effort it takes to have and brow a blog. I building community around your blog and the blogs you read takes lots of love and support. I still am shocked when I find out people read my posts too. Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. I'm a recent follower and I've also recently started my own blog to keep family and friends back home up to date :) Love reading about your blog!

  3. You're so right. Blogging is hard work. I am a new blogger (and a new follower of yours, yay!) and was surprised by how time consuming it can be!

  4. I couldn't agree more! This is a great post. Blogging is very time consuming! I am also running a blog group facebook community and that is a lot of work also! But the connections and friends I have made along the way has been amazing!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
