Hello World - Part 2

Published 9/1/07 (Modified 3/9/11)
By MoneyBlueBook

I just installed my Feedburner code to see how many people have actually subscribed to my new baby blog since I started not too long ago. For those of you beginner types who don't know what Feedburner is, it's one of the more popular feed reading applications out there. It allows you to pull news and postings from multiple sources into one location so you don't have to manually visit every web or blog site. Of course, it would still be very nice if you came by the site manually! :)

Time to Say Hello

When I looked at the number of people that have already subscribed to my site's feed, I was quite astonished to see a number greater than zero. Of course, my number is still humorously low, but I thought it would be nill since I haven't begun promoting it yet. The prevailing wisdom is that if you want your blog to take off in subscriber-ship, you need to increase your community participation by posting comments on other people's blogs and making yourself known to the blogging community. I haven't gotten around to it just yet but it's high up on my to do list. I just moved into this domain months ago and I'm still busy setting up the site and getting into my blogging groove.

But I will definitely be doing that in the near future. Right now, I am just trying to focus on writing my regular entries. I love writing and discussing my opinions on issues, but blogging is hard work, especially for me since I do this part time. Any other part time bloggers out there? Suggestions on how to prevent blogger's cramp or blogger's block would be much appreciated!

    I'm a part time blogger, it's not easy maintaining a daily posting schedule and working and having quality posts every day. I don't sleep like I used to, lol. But having my opinion and knowledge actually appreciated and valued is totally worth all the yawning and energy drinks. I've never been a public hungry type of person, in fact I'm very introverted, but blogging has brought out qualities in myself that I never realized I had before. I do work hard at both my jobs but at the end of the day I feel good about what I do.

    It really keeps my spirits up when I hear from other fellow part time bloggers! You're right, it's not easy working full time and blogging regularly, but once you get into a groove, you'll be able write quality content consistently in no time! Even when it seems like no one is listening, remember, in time, people will find you - the magic of the internet is at work!
