Nearly a Month of Blogging!

We’re coming up on a month since I clicked the “publish” icon for my first blog post

There is still so much to learn, but here are a few things I’ve observed since joining the blogosphere:

The Community

Maybe I haven’t been in the community for long to know otherwise, but so far, the WordPress.com community has been welcoming and supportive. I’ve also found a lot of good content on here that keeps me on my phone into the wee hours of the night. I’m still working on attracting readers who are interested in what I have to post, but so far, I’m pleased with the welcome and support! I’m not sure if any readers would be interested in knowing more about my background—let me know if this would interest you!

Hardcore Bloggers

Some members are so dedicated to what they do, they post very often. I define these hardcore bloggers as those that post multiple times a day or at least five times a week.

It’s motivating and, at the same time, shocking that these members are able to consistently dedicate their time to blogging. My mind is boggled how indie authors have the time to write their manuscript, edit it, blog, and keep up with their multiple social media accounts.

I have no idea how these people do it (I suspect worker gnomes in their servitude).

To the Hardcore Bloggers: If you could take your enthusiasm and drive and bottle it into a drink, I would pay. 

Most importantly, I’d like to thank you for your support. If you are reading this now—thank you. Thank you for taking the time to visit my page, read my words, throw down a like, or grace me with a follow.

What was your first month blogging experience like? Do you have any suggestions in attracting readers?

Stay fresh and happy reading!
