To my followers who I rarely hear from, dont be shy!

Ok. Curiousity has gotten the better of me.

I’ve got over 200 followers to this here blog. But I rarely hear from most of you. That makes me sad because I feel like I am missing out on getting to know all of you amazing bloggers and forming new friendships along the way also.

I try to comment on blogs as I can. I feel like its important that I do it, if I am following a persons journey, whatever their blog happens to be about. Most of the blogs I follow are peoples personal experiences with mental illness. I do follow a few other bloggers too who I find interesting and or inspiring.

So here is my question. To the people who are following silently, I’d like to get to know you, say hi, have some conversations going back and forth.

Please dont be shy. Introduce yourself and lets become friends. That would make me very happy.

Also it would let me know you are here, and you are real. Thanks guys.

Blogging 201-The first assignment Blog goals!

As some of you might know, I am attempting to do blogging 201, branding, growth, and traffic. The first assignment was posted today. Todays assignment is all about blogging. So why do I blog? I blog to reach out to others. I blog to put my words out there, to get them out in the open and out of my head. I blog to connect with other like minded people on wordpress. I blog because I love to write things down. If my blog exceeded my wildest dreams, it would look like this. I’d be reaching tons of other mental health sufferers and also a lot of survivors of abuse. I’d be helping to raise awareness, through my writing of the issues closest to my heart. I’d have a good number of followers, and lots of discussion going on the blog. I’d also have a few different features each week for my blog such as music Monday, healing with words on Tuesdays etc etc you get the gist. So now for todays assignment, its all about goals. I am going to list 3 goals for myself and my blog. And, I am going to try and achieve these in the not too distant future. So without further ado here they are.

Goal number 1-Publish at least once a day if not more for the next three months.
Goal number 2-Increase my followers by 20 percent by December 31st 2014.
Goal number 3-Create some new features on the blog, asking my readers what it is they’d want to have on the blog.

So there you have it, my 3 blogging goals!
