Why One of the Most Difficult Things To Achieve in Blogging Is To Get People To Care

blogexciteI once met a blogger who could not understand why so few people read her blog.  She used all the strategies she learned through other successful bloggers: commented, Liked, interacted.  But after a couple of years was perplexed.  The truth I explained to her is that one of the most difficult things to achieve in blogging is to get people to care.  And by care I mean care enough to interact with a blog on a daily basis.

People are under zero obligation to interact and even the largest blogs are affected by this truth.  I can have 100,000 views in a month, but those views come primarily from a small group of my followers and random people who find me on the internet.  And I would go on a limb and say every blog experiences the same phenomena.

Getting people to buy into what you do is tough.  Building a community is tough.  So if you wonder why more of your followers don’t interact, the reasons can vary, but usually they have other things that captivate their time.  And I take absolutely no offense to that nor do I harbor any frustration with these folk.

I have never expected anything of anyone who follows my blog, nor do I feel any obligation to the blogs I follow.  I have my personal “rules” that I use when interacting with other blogs, but try to keep in mind that everyone is different and each blogger is entitled to do their own thing-meaning they don’t have to comment, read or like any content I produce. People can interact or they can remain in the background as the occasional reader and I am perfectly accepting of both.

I simply do what I do and try to appreciate those who find value in my activities.

A Little a Request

Help a sister out!! lol

But I Smile Anyway...


Hi there Peeps!

Hope you are gearing up for a great weekend!

I have a little request, just wanna see if something can be done….

It’s my biggie birthday (40! Eeeeek!) soon, in a couple of weeks, and I was thinking to myself how great a present it would be to hit 1000 followers on WP by then… (I’m a couple away from 900 at the moment…)

This is where you, my lovely Peeps, come in.

Could you share/re blog this post, and see how many new followers I can get, and see whether I can hit that target?

(But only if you wanna!)

Foor those contemplating hitting that ‘Follow’ button, let me tell you a bit about me… I’m a mum, wife, daughter, teacher…. Heck I’m a woman!

My mission in life is to keep smiling, and to hopefully bring smiles to your life too.

I like to post…
