I really enjoy blogging, I started my blog back in March last year only post a handful of times each month. It was in November when I went to a coaching seminar that I realized my desire to make my blog more consistent. Through coaching I gained the confidence and will to commit to my little blog and have been going pretty strong ever since. It is often quite difficult to maintain. I am a working Momma and wife and my Career and family comes first, however, I do take pride in posting 4-5 times a week and am managing to do that for which I am very proud of myself.
I want to commend all the bloggers out there that are already balancing busy lives and still manage to post interesting content on their blogs. I would also like to thank the bloggers that have and continue to motivate and inspire me. This is no easy task so good job! Sometimes we need encouragement so through this post I hope to not only encourage myself but my readers as well.

Last night I was looking at the archives of some established blogs that I have long followed. You know.... the ones who have thousands of followers and get hundreds of comments on every post! In their early months they would often have only one of two comments, maybe even zero! Goes to show we all start in the same place but if we continue to work at it we can show great "blogress"!!!

This is the year my little blog is going to take some big turns and hope many of you will come along for the journey! Today I reached 10,00 page views so thank you for reading and enjoy your day! Pin It

  4. Hi, darling! That's the spirit! I started bloging last year too for the same reason - too much free time since the kids are all in school, high school for that matter! Anyway, your blog sounds more like mine (fashion, food, no thousands of followers.. ) and I would love for us to follow each other and continue this journey together! Thanks for dropping by mine, by the way :)

  7. I'm also trying to be a consistant blogger this year. I have managed a post every day so far but I am hoping it is not short lived!

    I am sure we can both do it =)

  8. It is so true that we all had to start small and grow from there. Those popular blogs did tend to grow at a faster rate than average but that is OK. I am a stay at home mom with a side business and even though I manage to keep my blog consistent I simply can't keep up with reading all the blogs I want to read and if you are not active reading other blogs and commenting the traffic on your blog becomes that much slower. I admire your new resolution and hope you can stick to it.
    Thanks for following me. I will follow you now.

  9. Inspiring post! We all start from scratch ;)
