Blogging from A to Z-"B"
"B" is for blogging. I just started blogging this past September (2012) just to see what kind of activity I'd get, and now, 6 months later, I have 234 followers and counting! Thank you, loyal followers ;) !
I never thought blogging would be anything but my secret little hobby,but once I got the hang of it, I thought, "Wow, this is really cool! I need to promote myself and post more often". Let me make myself clear- I am only 16. Because of my age, I didn't think anyone would be even remotely interested in what I had to say. But once I had some followers, I was hooked. I was determined to have as many followers as I could, and to have as many people comment on my posts as I could.
Since promoting myself on Facebook didn't work out too well, I decided to take an alternate approach by joining Twitter ( only have 4 followers, and am still wracking my brains to figure out how to add a 'follow me' button on my blog). A few months after I started blogging, I discovered the best aspect of the blogosphere--the blog hop! After participating in my first one (Follow Friday hosted byAlison Can Read), I FINALLY got what I was hoping for- new followers and comments! I then started furiously scouring the blogosphere, searching for any and every blog hop and blog hop I could find. It was a challenge, but thanks to my determination, I have succeeded in doing so!
Before I go, I'd like to say a few words about how happy I am whenever I see that someone commented on my post. I'm always so flattered when anyone gives me feedback! Like I said, I'm only 16 (ok, 17 in May)!
