lol- way to much to count! I feel like I am just learning!
I'm right smack in the middle of this right now!! I have a ton of "followers" but I can't get a response from a "reader" to save my life!! :(

to think that the number of followers (at least on my personal blog) mattered!! I would much rather have READERS than "public followers"


Making "promises" that I don't have time to keep... "Come back tomorrow for a giveaway" (and then I don't have time to get it all posted) or "Later today...a Safety Post" (and then life happens and I can't get it posted). Not that I think people are sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for it, but it just seems like it would turn me off to a blog if they say something is coming and it doesn't. I have to stop myself from this!!
Me too.

Facepalm.....definitely over sharing. To the point of feeling a little nauseous after I posted, then feeling so embarrassed that I've taken the post down. I think I was trying to be real and honest and just...share.

Not being consistent. I'd always start off well, but my posts became more sporadic over time. Reading my "Insights Report" on FB really helped me to see the correlation between consistency & readership....during the times when I wasn't consistent, my readership was the absolute lowest. Now I've started another blog and I'm really hoping I remain consistent, lol!!!

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! 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!

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.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
