My first blog was March 23, 2010. I have written 33 blogs, this will make 34. I began blogging as a way to express the emotions of moving from our home of 12 years in a nice suburb and into a 26′ travel trailer while our house in the country is being built. In the past 4 1/2 months I have developed an interest in social networking as well as a new hobby.
As with trying anything new and exciting you take the chance of becoming addicted. Fortunately or un-fortunately however you choose to look at it, I have become an addict. Addicted to checking my stats, checking the list of referrers and hoping upon hope that someone will take the time to comment. As of this posting I have had 977 views, 24 comments and 47 views in a single day. I am not sure what happened that day, but I think one of my friends finally got around to reading all of my blogs at once.
I enjoy discovering blogs that speak to me and my interests. I am hoping to build new friendships in the blogging community. I would love to learn the blogging lingo and how to apply the tricks of the trade to make my blog more interesting. All the while becoming a better writer and communicator. I would love for my blog to have a regular following.
I would love to have a paying gig as a blogger. (aren’t those people called journalists)
There is so much to consider when blogging; the audience, accuracy of information, branding, content, diversity, conversation, stories, truth, community, listening and integrity. Just recently I have begun to think about all of these things and how they all play a part in creating something interesting.
Thanks to Theycallmejane’s Blog I have discovered a few things that I would like to implement into my blog. The first one is to try to engage those who stop by for a quick peak to interact and leave a comment. The other is to create a little community with the writers of the blogs I enjoy. Ultimately helping one another develop our blogs and create online friendships.
