Fairy Blogmother

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!


  1. Wow, my muse lately has been saying things like "your blog posts aren't really any good anyway. You should take up something less public. Like knitting."

    Oh wait, that's not a muse, that's crushing self-doubt. Anyway. I should borrow your Blogmother! Then maybe I could write something for my silly apple website!

  2. So I'm officially following your blog. And I'm doing so publicly. Normally I go the creepy blogstalker way and follow anonymously, but not for you!!! I would like the whole world to know that I am stalking you. And I'm not ashamed!

  3. Great advice! And that's awesome that you're a gamer. I think it's safe to say that I'm one too :)

  4. I think you're on the right track by throwing out those points yourself, by the way! You have 30 blog followers. When I started my blog I think it took me at least 6 months to get to that many. I'm not kidding. :)

    I sent you an email. I hope I didn't ramble on too long!

  5. Girl your blog is looking great! I can't believe you've only been at it for a couple of weeks. And you're completely right- don't compare your blog to anyone else but YOU! Keep up the good work : ) xo

  6. You are doing great!

    Here are my tips:

    1. Comment, comment, comment on other blogs
    2. Guest post and invite other to guest post
    3. Post often!

    Hope this helps!
