Blog,  Let's Stay at Home

I Want

I’ve been thinking a lot about my blog lately. I’ve been worried about numbers, who has or hasn’t read my blog, and what I need to post. After talking it over with my husband, I have come to the conclusion that none of that needs to matter. I do care about all of that, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. Over the past few weeks I have just dreading over how many people haven’t been reading my blog. I can only attempt to explain why this means so much to mean. The only way I can express the way I feel is in small sentences, so please bare with me.

I want my blog to mean something.
I want to get up knowing that people read what I write every day.
I want to create something that is worth people’s time to read.
I want to create a spot in the big internet world where people can come and know that this is a safe place. They can trust me and what I write.
I want to attend blog conference and bond with other girls who are and have been in the place that I am.
I want to build new friendships.

Am I the only one who feels this way? Sometimes I feel like I’m all alone in this blog world, even though there are so many different people with different views.

With all of that being said, the conversation that I had with my husband turned into what we can do to make these dreams a reality. So there is going to be some changes around this blog. Positive and good changes, but changes none the less. I’m excited.

    I’m excited, too. I think deepdown, no matter how many of us scream, “I BLOG FOR ME,” in reality, it’s also because of our readers. Trust me… my desire to just blog for myself has long since retired. I keep trying to think of a way to sneak out un-noticed, but it’s hard. You don’t want to let the 1, 5, or 500 readers who come to your space down every day. So making your blog something that you believe in, that is a safe place and that does represent you is so important. Good for you, girl. 🙂 Doing it for you… and us 🙂
