I know that I am a little late in doing this post today - it has been somewhat hectic week. We have had to do some running around trying to get all the information together to take to our accountant for good ole tax preparation. Seems like I "forgot" to change our address with some of our past employers, so we didn't get our 1099's. However, after some running and sitting and waiting I THINK we have everything that he needs. I NEVER look forward to this time of the year - but I guess it is a necessary evil. Well, enough of that - let's move on to more interesting topics.
Which leads me to the title of the blog - what to write about. You see, I keep a very watchful eye on the number of "hits" I get on my blog. I am trying to build my readership - in fact, I don't think I have told anyone this except Mountain Man - but my goal for the month of March was to reach 50 followers - and I have reached my goal. But, I'm not satisfied with that - now I want to have 100 followers. I am very grateful to all of you that have decided to start following this blog - and I am also very grateful to those of you that have been with me since the beginning (you guys know who you are!). However, I really would like to reach more people, so in the middle of February I started linking up to "link parties". In the first week I doubled my followers - don't get too excited - I went from 12 to 24 - but I was excited! Then I went from 24 to 30! That's when I really started trying to link up more and build my blog.
What does this have to do with today's post? Well, as I said, I keep close eye on what attracts people to read my blog. I've been posting the renovation pictures of the house on Wednesday - and those are the posts that i have been linking. This week I thought I would try something different. Usually on Friday my post is about a project that I have completed - and last Friday I posted the name sign that Mountain Man and I did for Lorelai. This was the post that I decided to use on my link up's this week. BUST!!! I have had about 1/3 the number of "hits" on my blog with this post than I have had with the renovation posts, which sorta surprises me. Is it that the craft post was not something people were interested in? Did I not put a catchy enough tag on the post? Do you only want to see my renovation posts? Are the posts too long? I'm just not sure - so what do I write about?
Now that I have gotten thru my little "oh me, oh my!" party let me tell you that I did have something else I was going to write about today - but I'll save that for next week. So, if you would like to leave me a comment and let me know why you think I didn't get as many "hits" this week. I would love to know your thoughts on this.
Thanks - I'll "see" you on Monday with the Monday Menu - spoiler alert -
I have pictures to share of a meal I fixed last week!
Have a great weekend!
