So this blogging thing is fun. I get to write stuff and sometimes I spell check it and whatnot and people read it and comment and life is good. Once in a blue moon I look at my stats and the google searches that got the pervs here (like, girl with big feet fetish. Now he’ll be back). And stat-wise I do ok. Not super-famous-blogger ok, but ok. Like, a few hundred reads a day, a nice amount of subscriptions, folks following me in google and other readers ok. It makes me happy. But even if ten people read it, I’d still be happy.
Lately, though, I’ve noticed something. Other blogs? They have these icons to vote for them for Top Mom Blogs and stuff. I thought, hey, I’ll give it a shot. Can’t hurt, right? Except I can’t bring myself to shill for votes. I can’t do the, “HEY! LIKE ME! CLICK HERE!” thing. I’ll post links to my FB page and twitter and whatnot (HINT: PSST! It’s on the right side of the page!) but I just can’t bring myself to ask people to vote for me on these top blogs blogs. Blogggsszzzz.
So, does it matter? I don’t know. I mean, in a way I want more people to read me. But in a way, I don’t. Happy just the way it is. But I’m also not a risk taker so that doesn’t say much, other than I’m a chicken shiz and I don’t know how to put myself out there. So I guess I’ll just operate business as usual, and the heck with networking and stuff. And I’ll slowly grow, just like I’ve done up to this point, and maybe in a few years I’ll reach 400 reads a day.
I have no idea what the heck the point of all of this is, either. Just a simple Domestic Goddess, keeping it real, one day at a time.
