With a new home, fewer expenses, less stress, and a general new beginning in place for us, I’ve decided it’s time to step it up as a blogger.
So, I’ve made some goals. And I’ve read enough motivational books to know that a goal isn’t a real goal unless it’s written down and shared with others.
So, I’m going to do just that, and over the next few afternoons I’m going to share some of my better blogger goals with you all. I hope you’ll give me feedback as to whether or not those goals will make this blog a better experience for you!
GOAL #1: Respond to more of your awesome comments.
I know that I suck at responding to comments most of the time.
When you have a blog this big, it’s really easy to fade into the background and believe that the comments will come whether I interact on a regular basis or not.
Well, that’s stupid of me. Yes, sometimes I receive hundreds of comments (sometimes thousands) in a single day. I can’t reply to every one of them, but I sure as heck can reply to some of them.
And I’m going to do just that. Please forgive me for being a lame blogger (most of the time) in that regard.
What I could use from you: Please understand that on some posts, it’s just awkward for me to reply to comments. Especially introspective posts where I share something super personal. On those posts I love your comments more than on any other posts, but I like to just read them. I hope that’s okay.
Anyway, comments are the lifeblood of any blog. I really believe that. I may not always be able to respond. Just running a blog like this sometimes takes more time than I have, but I sure as heck always read as many as I can.
Your comments keep me going. Thank you for them. So much.
