I’ve Discovered the Secret to Blogger Success

I’m not joking guys……

This is a top secret classified bit of information that only the best of the best in blogland know and I’m here to share it with you right now!

And no I’m not talking about taking or finding the perfect photo from above with your hand, laptop, and cool phone case all visible. Clearly this is a very important step in the process, but every third grader who dreams of internet fame knows this one. Keep reading for the juicy stuff.

Blogger Success

It’s no secret that I haven’t been writing……….well really anything since the Holidays.

I posted that I got engaged….

And y’all responded with all the happiness and well-wishes.

I posted about the extremely difficult problem of not knowing what to hashtag my wedding…..

And y’all gave me all the best ideas non-stop until I picked one I loved. (#SomethingBarros in case you wanted to stalk me, but like in a non-threatening manner)

Then I had my Life Guru Jess post about making friends in your 20s…..

And y’all ate it up!

So what’s the secret to blogger success then?

Um, duh, it’s YOU! Community.

The Secret to Blogger Success = Community

Cliche maybe, but it’s the truth. I don’t care how wonderful your life is or how well you can craft the perfect post or how much blogging advice you have, without people to read your blog your blog would be just bunch of gibberish posted on the internet.

I mean if we’re all really honest with ourselves, blogs really are just gibberish posted on the internet. But we are Bloggers and we shall not givein to such nonsensical thinking.

Back to the secrets.

If you’re still with me at this point then I know you truly care and aren’t actually looking for the secret to blogging success and therefore proving my point. Sure making side money, or having a full-time blog is cool. I’ve made money off this thing, it’s a pretty cool feeling to be sent free stuff. In full disclosure I just bought a ton of wedding stuff from blog money just chillin in my Paypal account.

But what makes me come back time and again.

The friends and connections I’ve made while writing, not the money made.

So whether you agree with me or not, thank you for reading my words and connecting with me even when I’m not around as often as I used to be. I promise I’m still around and trying to connect with y’all.

What do you think? What’s the secret sauce?

  1. Agreed – it’s the virtual friends that feel so real that make blogging so special. I suppose it’s also the general day to day documentation that triggers fond memories when you go back to read as well! Great post!

  2. I’m with you on that. I tried the blogging to make money thing and I juts can’t do it. If i get worried about stats I get upset and feel like a failure so now I just use blogging to work through my issues and keep in touch with the few lovely people who are nice enough to read my blog!

  3. I just found you from Anne’s blog today and I am so glad that I did. Yes! The community is so important and one of the best parts of blogging. Money is great and all, but I love the friends I have made so much more.

  4. I’m a little older for this young kids party, but well, hell…anyone who thinks popcorn is an entrée is OK by me. I think your writing style is cute. You are absolutely right – I’m meeting some pretty feisty midlife broads on this blogging voyage! I love it!

    • Haha I keep telling myself I’ll grow up one of these days but so far it hasn’t taken hold of me…..SO welcome to the “young” kids party! Although I will warn you that all my friends call me a grandma so I think you actually just joined the grandma party lol

So what'd ya think?....
