give it to me straight

I like my blog. It’s fun to me. But sometimes I feel like I’m posting to an empty room. Fellow bloggers, do you ever feel that way? Not fishing or complaining, just saying…

Jenny recently attended Alt Summit, a conference for bloggers (would that not be the most fun ever?), and she recently posted about how to grow your blog, something I am always keen to do. She had some great tips, so if you’re interested, go check her out (not to mention her blog is one of my favorite ones in internetland). With that in mind, I’d love to get some feedback from you out there. What’s your favorite blog? What do you like about my blog? What could you do without? What can you not get enough of? Is something stale or totally lame? Come on, tell me. I can take it. I promise!

And if you have a blog out there and would like to do a guest post, let me know! We can give shout-outs to each other! Follow me, too! Duh.

I can’t wait to hear from you all!

Here's hoping you have a totally rad weekend. I don’t know about you, but pay day cannot come soon enough. Seriously.

I always feel stylish after reading your wishlist wed. And you know any ounce of style I had left when the baby came. Your blog is refreshing!

Your blog is one of my favs--seriously. You write beautifully, which I appreciate, and you always have fun posts. And I know exactly what you mean about talking to an empty room. I rarely have comments, I have 8 followers, (one who is my mom,) but I always have a significant number of hits. Who knows?

I have no idea how I came across your blog, but I'm totally addicted. I'm a somewhat new mommy, and you seem to keep me in the loop on what is trendy. It seems we have a lot in common based on your interests, too! I always enjoy your cheery writing style as well. Wishlist Wednesday is my fave!

You blog has some great tips/ things to wish for/ etc. I would like it to be less predictable. My favorite blogs are ones that are consistent and interesting. If they do the same thing all of the time, I get bored. I have the same few people who comment but know by the live traffic feed, more read.

YOU ARE CUTE. I want you to post more.

You know I read faithfully. My 93 year-old grandad reads my blog every day. I'm pretty sure he's the only one, but that one is plenty for me. Keep up the good work!

Love your Wish List Wednesday! I keep thinking I'm going to steal the idea...then I never do. LOL! It's so fun!

And yes. I often feel like I'm talking to an empty room. I have two blogs. One I get hardly any visitors to. The other one (photography-based) gets people because I tag the photos, which brings people. It's kinda weird sometimes. Seriously. For the longest time, people came to my blog through searching for ferris wheels. Odd...
