My readership has dwindled down to near nothingness. I blame myself. I blame the fact that I migrated from here to there and back to here again. Except now the here is actually next door, so to speak, to where it once was.
How do these super popular bloggers do it? How do they get their blogs “out there”? How do they get so many comments?!?! I’m lucky to get just one tiny, little, itty bitty comment once a week. I guess I haven’t really found my writing style yet. A nice niche to fall into. I feel like I must blog during the week, but sometimes there just isn’t anything to blog about. Sometimes there is too much to blog about! I’ve signed up with the Mom Blogs, the BlogHer network, and even created a community with The Blog Frog. I hope this can drum up some business.
I think part of the issue is my lack of being able to stick with a certain blog layout. There are just so many cute layouts out there. I honestly wish that I could find one that I wanted to stick with. I’ve changed it once again. I didn’t even make it though the month of October. I starting looking at the previous layout and thought that it looked hard to read. The new layout has color, but muted tones. Fingers crossed that I can stick with this one. I’m really proud of myself for making a navigational bar under my header. It was super easy and I think it makes the page look more “professional”.
Both of the kids are getting excited about my dad coming to visit next week. Everyday this week Neil has asked, “How many more days until Pop gets here?” This morning I was pleased to say two. He’s coming up from Florida for Neil’s birthday next week. Neil’s 10th birthday. I can’t believe my baby is going to be turning 10 years old! Whaaaa… where did the time go?
Thinking about this just makes me want to spend more time with my family. The problem is that the majority of them all live in Florida! Chris has been ready to pack up and move numerous times, but I’m too scared to go so far away from what I know. That which is comfortable. We seriously considered a move a couple of years ago. Even looked into houses, condos, and apartments in south Florida. I chickened out. The idea of just packing up our family and moving a thousand miles was a little daunting. Especially without the guarantee of a well paying job. The cost of living is much greater there than it is here so a job paying the same that he makes here isn’t really worth crap down there. I think I would miss the slow pace. I would miss the country.
Right now though… I would not miss the rain or this cold weather!!
