When I started this blog in January I went in with very little confidence, especially considering I started out with Tumblr instead of WordPress. My goal originally was to write yet another blog ( I think I have like 15 out there?) except this time actually have someone out there reading it. I had written most of my book and was looking to publish, but every literary agent came back with, “if you have not been published before, keep a similar blog and show us people are interested.” Great I thought, how long will that take?! I mean my oldest blog has all of 5 readers, who used to actively comment. But here we are at the beginning of March and I have hit the 100 followers mark, that was the initial goal I set for myself. And since goal setting and achievement is a huge focus of retail (or any career) success I believed it was important to share, that I have reached my first goal. Now I have to think of a new one, didn’t expect this to happen so quickly.
And to my followers, you have turned this from something I was doing for a literary agent and made it something far more personal. The community here is undeniably supportive and amazing. Your blogs make the long days of being a stay at home mom in a new town far away from lifelong friends and family incredibly bearable! Thank you all for your continued support! I have a huge line up of blogs I think you will enjoy based on the feedback I have received so far, I even have some even set to publish as I am flying with Dumbo and my kiddos at Disneyworld in two weeks. 😉
