So far, 2014 has been simply spectacular. At the start of the new year, I made a promise to myself to do whatever it takes to become a better blogger. I set a goal of responding to every Daily Prompt and Photo Challenge posted this year and so far, I’ve been keeping up! In addition, I reached out to a fellow blogger named Jess from Waiting on a Word waitingonaword(dot)com whose suggestions have been incredibly helpful so far (Thanks again, Jess!) It’s thanks to her that I’ve been doing the Weekly Writing Challenges!
I also decided to participate in Zero to Hero. I sent the Z2H crew a message letting them know why I wanted to participate. In that message, I listed multiple goals, and one included trying to reach 240 followers by January 31st (and I wasn’t sure if I could do it!). Well, we’re only about halfway through the month and my blog managed to hit a total of 300 followers today! Although this number may be small to some, it’s huge for me! You guys totally made my day.
I can’t thank you all enough. But I’m going to try.
We’re scattered across the world so here’s a digital yogurt from me to you. Enjoy!
Congratulations! What were Jess’ suggestions I wonder?
Jess reminded me of the importance of giving back to the community! It’s helpful to select “tags” that interest you, keep an eye out for interesting posts, and get engaged with other bloggers through commenting.
Sound advice … currently trying to do just that!
Good luck! 🙂
Hi. I have nominated you for one of those award things. http://thehowlingfantogs.wordpress.com/2014/01/16/finally-im-accepting-one-of-these-award-thingys/
Wow, thank you! I’m honored! You deserve *two* yogurts 😉 I’ve been a little busy lately and I’m worried the link to your blog will get lost as this post ages. If possible, I’d really appreciate if you could simply copy and paste the nomination to my About page so I know where to find it when the time comes. Thank you! 🙂
No problem. Done.
