Support

Blog Positivity Week - One of the things I love most about blogging is all the support. Ever single comment I receive means so much to me. When I'm going through a tough time, I'm always getting words of encouragement. It's nice knowing people are actually reading what I have to say, and I love hearing what people think!

Are you a secret blog reader?

Before I started my own blog I read blogs. I had my favorites that I read every single day. I never left comments. I didn't even follow them with Google Friend Connect. I just had some bookmarked and visited them when I got a chance. 

Now that I have my own blog, I know how important my readers and comments are.

Don't be a secret blog reader - let your favorite bloggers know you enjoy reading their blogs. Follow them, so that they feel the support even when you might not have anything to say. But to be honest, I simple comment goes a long way.

This is Blog Positivity Week, so I want to stress that blogging isn't all about the number of followers - not for me at least - but it is encouraging watching that little number grow. Knowing that people are out there supporting me and what I have to say.

I have seen several bloggers talk about this before - it's important. One of the best things about blogging is the support and love. Without comments and followers it's easy to feel like nobody is out there reading. Support bloggers you love and let them know they mean something to you.

  1. I couldn't agree more. I always feel like I have a team backing me up and telling me I sometimes need to hear and need to remember! We all need a little support. Its so much nicer to spread the love and things that are good instead of stressing the things you hate!!!

  2. I was totally a secret blog reader before I had a blog! I was too nervous to comment!

  3. Support really is one of the best parts of blogging, isn't it? I am a "secret reader" for a lot of blogs, but I just don't have time to comment on everything. I wish I did though!

  6. Well said girl. As bloggers comments are often the only 'payment' we get for the time spent on our blog. So every single one really means a lot!
