Motivation Monday - Blog Followers

Motivation Monday - wait it's Tuesday.  That just shows where my motivation level was yesterday.

Actually, I try to think of positive things to write about as motivation for myself.  I hope that others who read my blog find it helpful as well.

I guess that is actually what I chose to write about.  This past weekend, while set up at the show, a customer paid me a nice compliment about my blog.  So, Chris - this is for you.  

I really like writing this blog.  It truly is an extension of my creativity.  I also follow many blogs.  I always look at the amount of followers they have and the amount of comments on each post.  How do these blogs get those responses?  Not that I think I have anything important to write about, I just wonder how they do it.   What makes them so popular in blogland.   

Then I have to remind myself - Jacky it's not a competition.  I have to remind myself of that a lot in different areas of my life.  It is one of the things I continually work on.

Then, Chris comes along...reminding me of something really important.  I didn't know that people I knew here - that are not "followers" - actually follow me.   Other friends over the past few months have come up to me and said...."that was so funny when...or, I tried your recipe and ..."  How flattering.

So, Chris and others, thanks for motivating me.  Knowing that people I actually know read this is all the inspiration I need.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

really sweet.

i am blessed to have lots of followers - and even more important to me - lots of regular commenters. but i also leave tons of comments in blogland every day. it is certainly a give and take, and not everyone has the time i have to give it. for now, at least... :)

I have enjoyed following your blog. Always lots of different subjects that you cover. I wish I had more time to dedicate to mine.

Good morning Jacky...this is just so true what you said.
It's not a contest - I have my blog because I like to CHAT...lol And I use it more as a journal for me and my family. The blessings are those that come read it and follow.

I was in the same situation you were in this past weekend. If you read my last post from yesterday you would see that I met several people at a show that knew me from my blog but I had no idea who they were as they do not comment - but they let me know this past weekend that they like what they read. How fun.
I like reading your blog - I haven't been on much but hope to turn things around.

Hi Jacky! I understand what you mean! But I'm thankful I have followers! For a long time, I didn't! Maybe one day I'll focus more on growing my blog, but right now I'm content with where it is! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!
