I started my blog on the 16th January 2011. Not really knowing what it was all about, where to start or how i would write. I didn't realise how huge the world of blogging was, and i started it to basically inform family and friends who don't have facebook what we all get up to. Saved on me emailing a stack of photos and writing a ton of letters. Totally lazy on my part.
Well, it wasn't until i had Elsie that i really thought aboing "going viral". I was always keen to gain followers and i posted a few bits on my personal facebook page but i didn't know HOW to gain them. In my naive state of baby bliss i thought they would all come piling in when some huge blogger read my blog and shared it with the world because it was SO AMAZING.
How wrong was I.
Blog hops, link ups, a facebook page, and a co host later i feel like i'm getting somewhere. With just over 50 followers (yeah, i know you're all laughing. "50 followers you say... thats nothing on my 1,200 followers.") i feel like i'm on the road to making it!
I think a lot of it is confidence. I don't actually think i am good enough to go all out viral. I don't really try as much as i should, and i do think a lot of my followers don't even read it!!
So when do you get to a point where you advertise? When do you start your OWN blog hops and link ups? I would quite like to get to that stage.
That is all for now, i'm off to ponder some more and fold some washing. Joys.
