Even When No One Is Looking

So I didn’t necessarily feel like blogging today but I’ve already taken a two day break over the Christmas holiday and I didn’t want to risk missing anymore.  I was having trouble figuring out what to write about today and I found that I wasn’t feeling all that motivated because I took a look at the stats of my blog and saw that there weren’t that many people reading what I had to say to begin with.  I think I need for my best friend Ms. L. to share her secrets with me because she can go from having a bad blog day to a good blog day in a matter of minutes with just one post.  Maybe it’s just not my blog moment yet. I guess that I just have to wait my turn in that area too.  It feels like I always seem to be waiting for my turn at something.  Well they say that the best things come to those who wait and since I don’t plan on ever giving up on writing, I guess I’ll just keep on blogging and writing my novels and doing whatever else my journey as a writer brings to me even if no one is looking (or in this case reading).  Until tomorrow…Always do what you love doing whether people are watching or not!

  1. I’ve found networking is a great way to increase your stats. Find a few great blogs with lots of traffic. Follow them and comment. Often those comments will lead to visits to your blog. Make your name a regular thing for people. Hosting a give-away is also a great way to gain subscribers and if you show up in people’s inboxes they are much more likely to read.

  2. Hi, Jimmetta:

    From reading your About page, it sounds like you’ve accomplished a lot! I restarted my writing life this year and created a writer’s blog to share with others what I learn on the journey. The advice I get from seasoned bloggers is “Keep writing,” “Write regularly,” and “Get known in the blogging community.” I share my stories in a second blog so that I can get used to strangers reading my writing. It’s a new adventure that I’m enjoying, though it’s tough with a full-time job. But I’ll take your advice and keep writing “… whether people are watching or not”!

  3. LOL…the only “secret” I have is what you have posted. Keep writing, keep commenting to let other bloggers know you appreciate their posts, and keep writing. Oh, and keep writing 🙂
