I want my blog to grow. There, I’ve said it – I want my blog to be bigger and better than it is at the moment. It’s all out in the open now and not rattling around in my little expat head! And what’s brought all this on I hear you ask? Well this:
Yep, something that is usually alien to me is having a big effect – numbers. I want the little numbers on this chart to be higher, and to keep getting higher as more and more people find and read my blog, the thing I put a lot of effort into and love writing. And why do I suddenly crave for more readers? Well, it’s not a sudden change of heart, believe me!
Ever since I started writing this blog, I’ve loved seeing the numbers when I check out how many views I’ve had, and the higher they are, the bigger the smile on my face! The thing is, I read other blogs that aren’t much older than my little piece of the internet and they’re a LOT more popular than mine. Every post is commented on, link ups are extremely popular and there’s a whole lot of love flying around those blog posts! I want that too.
I want to get those readers to check out my musings – I’m not saying they are the best musings on the internet but they must have something about them that’s attractive to the people who are already taking an interest in them! I want them to share the love with me and my little piece of web land. I just need to work out how!
Now, I know the readers are just going to click on my blog uninvited – I need to entice them there. And that, my lovely readers, is my new mission! I need to network (the word that usually fills me with dread – I’m not the best at the old networking lark!) with my fellow bloggers and learn the tricks of the trade! I want to get my little bloggety blog on the map and I want to see those numbers grow. I’m gonna put myself out there and try as hard as I can to get those readers to sit up and take notice of this blogging lady and her adventures as an expat, muddling her way through life in a new country.
Exactly how I’m going to do that I’m not so sure but what I do know is that I’m going to give it a blummin good go! I might need a little help though, so if anyone has any tips to help me along the way – I’m all ears!
