Started my blog to update my relatives who are abroad and also to write some memories. Little did i know that it is open to public. After reading some comments from readers that i didnt know, i started to share everything i discover, tips on everything i encounter, my life etc...

Not getting a domain name for my blog is one of the biggest mistakes i made, i would have loved to be on .com. Secondly i was a newbie and those that knew never told me that i should use my blog name as my URL, instead i used my Last name. But thanks to God that i still get OPP despite that and is not in any way affecting my blog..

accepting more tasks than I had time , now stuck with some 13 reviews dating back to sept . Never doing it again. First prioritizing my family plans and then taking the tasks.

I should have started 4 years ago when I first heard of http://dooce.com! Oh well, I am here now. :)

I think my recent giveaway was disappointing. It was at a time when I din't have time for my site and so didn't promote the giveaway much. I think I will wait a little while until I do it again, and do it interdependently with a sponsor.

Making a blogging post schedule - but NOT STICKING TO IT! 

For this coming 2012 - I am aiming to write a better blog by religously writing every day!

Okay... Confused... Why the hiding? Be proud of your work

My family knew but never visited my blog, HA. It took a TV interview for them to find it..so weird, right?! Your blog is your business period! Jamie said:
I am totally blogging in the closet right now. The only person who knows about my blog are my husband, mother and best friend. If my sister-in-law found out, I would never hear the end of it. I'm so scared I'll be discovered. I'm thinking about just coming out already.

Telling my cousin was a HUGE mistake. I was going through a lot of stuff at the time and I hoped this new hobby would take my mind off things. Then I told her of my exciting new blog she was less than supportive.... which really added to all the crap that was going on. I'm glad I stuck with it dispite her support.

Trying not to, but still working out how to make the money?

was giving away side bar links for Free!! I now charge and make a bit of spending money. I no longer write free posts to spread the word on this on that MY time is valuable and so is my blog and content. If they want me to advertise they will have to pay me something or compensate with a product review. Billions of $$$ are being spent on advertisement it's time to stop advertising for free. The more of us who say we charge the more company's will take us seriously and stop trying to get by on another blogger who will not charge

. DOn't work for Free ladies!

I am new and still learning, so I am sure I am making many mistakes but not sure what they are yet...

Yeah I hear ya! Giveaways seem like a good idea to get more following, but I didn't know you must make urself well-known via other sources to have good number of entries in a giveaway. I had to cancel my contest coz of low entries.

I thought I was the only one trying to hide my blog from the family n friends :) Kate, I think its just a novelty of this blogging thing and since we r doing everything on our own, we might be afraid of the criticism especially if it comes from the people who are supposed to support you no matter what. And sometimes it is jealousy too, that we want to avoid if we r doing good.

I declared my blog 1 month after I started it, wrote a nice email to everybody and expected the comments to pour in. But just 2-3 congratulating replies and thats all. As I thought, people didn't jump on the link I sent them to see what I was doing. Then after a few weeks I started getting queries like how did u think of this, what abt the income etc., so people were curious but didn't want to show so much interest in my work.

Well, whatever anybody thinks, we just have to keep going for ourselves. YOU are your only motivation.
