Okay, I admit it. I dropped the ball. It all started with the Biz Mommy of the Week. You know how it is – when you have that entrepreneurial itch…ugh, that sounds a bit like a disease, let me start again.
So, once I was happy with the overall look of my blog, I started getting all these ideas about content that I wanted to include on it. Only problem was, I would have needed 10 clones of myself to get all that I wanted to accomplish done this year. So I heeded the very sage advice I kept hearing from every small business owner worth her salt these days, and I reached out for help. And I got it. Lots of it. So much, in fact, that I’m now booked up with weekly guests for my Blog Talk Radio show until mid-September, I have tons of cool freebies lined up for the Biz Mommy Monthly Giveaway and I have more guest posters waiting in the wings than I know what to do with.
Ah yes, about those guest posts. I have been very lucky to have some really smart people contributing to my content over the last couple of weeks. I so appreciate their participation here and I enjoyed reading their articles. But I’ve noticed something interesting happening over the past few weeks. It’s the sound of crickets…and not the ones in my backyard. See, I’m pretty new to blogging and I’ll be perfectly honest and say that when I got my first few comments, I was SO excited! The sight of that big red dot on the side of my WordPress dashboard was a thing of sheer beauty. Two comments turned into four, then turned into six, and I was just beside myself when this post got double digit comments! Then I got all cocky and turned over the reins while I started up with those pesky ideas again (ooh, can I fit just one more widget over here and OOOOh, let me try some video content, that’s hot right? Uh, not when said video is seventeen minutes long - with nothing but updates about other people’s events!!!!…but that’s a #fail story for another day).
Anywhen, although my intention was in the spirit of creativity, my blog is just too new to be handing over eight out of ten posts to guests. Writers write, right? So, although I will still feature a Biz Mommy of the Week and welcome one guest poster on Fridays, the rest of the posts in the week will be served up fresh and hot by none other than yours truly.
And to my blogging friends who may have noticed that I unsubscribed from your blog, I did not abandon! I simply switched over from email subscription to reading all of your wonderful posts in my feed reader; much neater that way.
So crickets be gone, okay? Bloggy friends let me hear you…I’m here for some conversation!!!
