I need to get better at blogging, I think. Yes, I do this for myself and all, but I’ve gotten kind of lax with this lately. I don’t even know why.
I used to be all into reading new blogs and building new relationships and as a result, trying to encourage new people to come and read my blog. I don’t do that so much now. I keep up with the ones on my blogroll and that’s about it! Even just with that I find myself on here for an hour or more. Mind you, my computer is slow.
Now, I’m not putting myself down but some of you have awesome blogs. You get lots of comments, and even more readers. I’m not there. My family and a few friends read, I know that. And then there are my blogroll people. Most of them at least check in from time to time. My site reader says I get an average 35-40 people visiting per day. Not a lot, I know, but I’ve been satisfied with it so far. And like I said, I’m not really out there reading new blogs very much. But I just checked my site reader, and I’m down to 13 people per day! And not all of those 13 are actually staying to read! A lot of zeros. Yikes. So, I’m thinking I had better step up my game here and write something interesting.
……………………………..hmmmmm ………………………………………..eh hem………………………..I got nothin’.
I even find that what I blog about isn’t always consistent. In the beginning this really was a journal of sorts. Now I just write when I think something interesting has happened and even then I don’t always write about it. Maybe because I’m feeling a little hum drum in my life. I’ve got a case of the blas right now. So, actually, maybe it’s not a case of me stepping up my game in the blogospehere. What I really need to do is step up my game in the real world and that will shine through in my writing.
………………………I suppose that could be it…………………
Who knows? Anyway, something’s chasing people away. 😦
No worries. Sniff. I know I’m a good person. Sniff. People love me. Snuffle. Sniff Sniff.
I’m kidding, people!!! Just trying to get some perspective here. 🙂 It’s all good.
Now. I’ve got mowing to do. I have my lawn mower thingy attached to my lawn tractor now and the grass in my front ditch seems a foot long. Afterwards the kids and I will do some math outside. Then Adrian is coming home early. We’re going into the city to buy a new tent. We just bought a new one but the zipper is already broken and it’s really not big enough so we’re returning it. We also want to look at a new pool.
It’s a cracking day out there. I hope everyone (all 13 of you) enjoy it!
