Flashback Friday: Revisiting the Beginning

16 Aug

January of this year, I started this blog.  I can hardly believe eight months have passed.  I can hardly believe I am inching my way closer to 4,000 views, I have a following of readers (much more than I thought I did), and I am gaining more momentum and readership with every post.

To see my first post, visit “Starting Anew.”

I invite you to compare that first post with some of the posts along the way.  I also invite you to critique my blog.  Seriously.  Here is your chance to tell me what you hate about my blog, what you like/love about my blog, and what you think would be beneficial to the blog if it were changed.

Hate the color scheme?  Tell me!

Love the use of the fonts?  Tell me!

Don’t really relate to the content, but you read it anyway just because I am your friend?  Eh… Okay… Keep that one to yourself!  LOL

I have put myself out there just like this with some of the blogger groups I have joined as well.  I have gotten some really incredible feedback from some, and crickets chirping from others (somehow not certain that is a good thing.)

My goal is to gain readership.  I want to know if what I write about interests anybody, encourages anybody, and helps anybody.  However, if my blog is not appealing- I certainly need to know.  

And who can tell me best?   YOU!  If YOU are reading this- then YOU can best critique my blog!
I hope you will.  I hope you will be honest.  (Promise I have a thick skin.  I can only learn from your critiques)
***Keep in mind- I will weigh every like or dislike very carefully.  You might see some changes over the next several weeks as a result of your critiques.  Others you might not.  Some changes will depend on the ability I have to manipulate the template, which I am still learning to do.
Thank you so much for reading my blog.  I do hope you will come back!  🙂

As always, I am eager to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment sharing your thoughts or sharing your blog!

    Hello! Thank you for taking the time to give me your thoughts. I DO love comments. However, I think I lose many commenters because of the way the Blogger comments are set up. I am researching to see if there is another way I can get comments. (Still learning… hehe) Thank you for the suggestion about the columns. I too think they are a bit crowded. Not sure what I am going to do about them yet because I hate to lose those links that take readers on to other great sites. 🙂 I do hope you will comment again if you see something you like or don't like. God bless!

    I reading some of your posts, I see you do not get alot of commentation. Do you care about comments? I always took it to mean no one cared about my blog, so I stopped blogging. Why waist my time? Anyway. I love the colors, the fonts, and how you use the fotns to accent your points. My only recommendation would be to clean up your side columns- they are very busy, and distracting.
