Why Blog? ~~Writerly Wednesday #awriterslife #amblogging

Why blog? That’s a big question. How many people really read what you write? Its hard to say. There are trackers but some of those just show visits, not acutual readers.  I get very few comments on mine. I became frustrated and last year with life coming at me full force, I quit blogging except Friday. I had entered the MRW52 week blog and didn’t want to be a quitter. I made it until December and started missing some days then. How do you know what blog to use, Weebly, blogger, WordPress, and many others? Blogger is very user-friendly. I used it as my first ever blog and did get comments and followers.  I used it like a journal posting each day. Blogging like that got me on my feet and pulled me through a hard time.

This year I decided to revive my blog, three days a week. My most read blogs were Foodie Friday and Writerly Wednesday and Teaser Tuesday. I am going to move Foodie Friday to Monday as Munchie Monday (Thank you Misty for the cutest name ever) i will feature recipes and stories to go along with them.  I am keeping Writerly Wednesday with tips, interviews and other thing pertaining to writing. And Friday is the 52-week MFRWauthor writing challenge.  For now, I am only doing these three days a week with an occasional spotlight or guest appearance. If you would like to follow my books, see teasers, have games and other fun stuff join my facebook group Cat’s Romance-Aholics.

Blogging can be time-consuming. I was spending hours a day on the blog, emails etc and not getting any writing. I have learned much over the years. I chose WordPress as a website and to combine my blog into one place.

Should you blog? I think that is a personal decision. You can have a website with no blog, but I think people like to get to know an author. It makes reading books more enjoyable when you see bits and pieces of the person that wrote the book. I think it’s a good way to make friends.

Blogging takes a lot of work trying to decide what to post, finding photos or songs and trying to make it interesting. So if you read blogs take a moment to comment. We love to know what you think!

This weekend two of my three grandies had Birthdays.

Drake turned 11. We all chipped in to get him a TV for his room to play his games on ad Hubby is making him a TV table for it. I cleaned house all day Saturday and made Drake his favorite meal of Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuits gravy and Chocolate cake. I also Met my son’s new girlfriend. She is very sweet. I think I am going to like her.

My youngest Granddaughter turned Three Jan 22. Here she is with her mom.

Posing!

I got to go visit for a while. We took her birthday gifts, a plastic stove, some plastic food and dishes, and a cute plastic waffle maker. She seemed to enjoy it all. We also got her Smurfs two but didn’t get a chance to watch with her.

Watching Papa put the stove together…..cuting the play fruit.

My Step grandson Jacob also turns 16 this month. My Nephew’s wife has a birthday, Thier youngest daughter will be 4( I think)

I have a Nephew with a birthday today. Happy Birthday Landon! My Brother’s  soon to be daughter had her first birthday ( she is 10, but this had been her first celebration so she called it her first) and my oldest stepdaughter has a birthday this month as well.
