A friend of mine asked me for some help today. She has decided to start a blog. I went to her house and we sat down together to get her started. We used wordpress.com to begin it because that is what I use so I am familiar with it. I love checking my “stats” and seeing how many people have read it. My youngest son always is amazed to see where my readers are located while at the same time, I wonder why someone across the world would be interested in what I have written, but it makes me so happy that they are!
Before I began blogging, I don’t think that I even understood exactly what “blogging” was. I made sure my friend knew this and told her that I have been learning as I go along… and what a learning process it has been for me!! I find it amusing that I have “followers”, not just people who read my blogs via Facebook and Twitter, but people who actually get alerts when I post something new. I have also begun to follow other bloggers and I look forward to reading their blogs each time they post something new. It has opened a whole new world.
Now that I am getting more familiar with the “blogosphere”, I am realizing just how much is out there to read. There is really no way for me to keep up without it becoming a full time job! I told my friend this and we talked about having a catchy title for it so that she will generate readers. I am not going to spoil it for her here by revealing her title, but I love what she chose and I cannot wait for her to write her first blog so that I can share it with my readers too!
Stay tuned….I am sure that I will be sharing her with you soon!
