How do you become part of the popular crowd when you’re just starting out?

In my last post I asked, “what will come back to me?”

What’s the best way to bring traffic to your blog?  As I’m starting out, well actually, I’ve been at this for almost a year now. I’ve stopped and started a dozen times. Which is why you’ll see I only have a few posts. I’ve changed my blog appearance a dozen times too. Nothing seems to fit. Like a dress that’s too small..and is scratchy..and is full of static cling. Blah…yuck. So I keep changing. Trying to find my groove. Will it ever happen?  Here’s to hoping!! 🍷👍

Change of subject:  I’m on Pinterest. I love Pinterest! But I find it kind of annoying when you go to others boards and they’re unorganized, not in alphabetical order, with multiple pins of the same pictures. Is that just me? As a virtual assistant, I think it’d be great to go into people’s boards and clean them up. You know, organize them and get them all lookin pretty. Ready to be viewed by others. Hey out there, in the Internet universe…. Could you use some help in organizing your Pinterest boards? Contact me on Pinterest @teriwilcox64

Ok, like last time, I’m putting out to the Internet universe….

come find me…

Blogging 101: Today’s assignment: write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post on your blog.

Who am I?  I’m a mom first and foremost. Sometimes a good example and sometimes a bad example of motherhood but a mom none the less.  A wife.  A grandmother.  A daughter.  A sister.  A friend.   A Licensed Massage Therapist.  A Licensed Aesthetician.  A big dog lover.  A wine enthusiast.  An “OK” cook.  A person who’s never satisfied with the status quo.  A crafter.  A movie critic.  A voracious reader.  An old softball player. An Aries (and all that goes with it).

Why am I here?  I’m here to learn from other people who have this blogging thing figured out.  I’m here to step outside of my own comfort zone and to take risks and challenge myself everyday.  I’m here to find my voice and learn how to put my ideas into totally intelligent and thought provoking writing.  I’d like to find my niche and turn this into a money making blog.  I’d like to be able to tell a story to make others understand and feel what I’m feeling.  I’m here to share stories, recipes, pictures and experiences.  And I’m here to make friends and have a good time.
