It’s late…well for me it is. My toddler goes to bed at 7 so anything past that is late in my mind. And, as per usual, I’m spending my evening blogstalking, trying to figure out what I need to do to get my name out there. It seems like everyone’s breaking through but me. I wish there was a Fairy Blogmother who could explain it all to me.
She’d say “Kadie, this is the way to sell yourself (in a very ethical, professional sort of way, not the skeezy internet way):
A) Stop wondering “who cares?” Because people will care if you give them something or someone to care about.
B) Stop comparing your blog to those that have been going for years. It’s been almost two weeks. Cool your Jets.
C) Stop comparing your blog to those that have been going for almost two weeks. Everyone’s different.
D) Take feedback and rejections as tools for growth. Not as personal attacks. Not everyone is going to love what you do. At the end of the day what matters is that YOU love what you do. That will translate.
E) Your self worth should not be measured in blog comments. That’s just silly.
F) Just. Keep. Writing.
Wow, that worked. I feel a little better. Maybe she’s real! A dream is a wish your heart makes, and all that!
