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.
More Milestones said: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.
If I had it to do over again I would never have started on Blogger. I also would have created a separate email address, just for my blogging identity. Then I could exist on Facebook without having my blog page linked to my personal page. The same goes for Twitter. It's not a matter of remaining anonymous, it's about avoiding confusion. I wish I could pass this along to every would-be blogger.
NOt getting a domain name straight off. Switching domains to .com made my new name go n/a. It took a few months to get to a 4/10 now I have to grow back to it.

I can relate to this too. I havent' switched ot a .com because someone picked up the name for a static page to make money. I swear it was intentional someone trying to keep me down. :D
I'm a PR4 and don't want to give that up so close to Christmas
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!
