Figuring Out The Pieces


In case you hadn't figured it out yet, I'm new to this blogging thing.  I came across it quite by accident and like chocolate, I find it very addictive.  I  have given myself a very worthwhile goal of attempting to create a post every day for an entire year.  365 days to try and keep your attention and entice you to return to my blog often.

I have received many followers and feel quite proud of my "virgin" efforts to delve into Blogland where there are millions of blogs to choose from and some people choose mine.  Whether they follow me through email or some other type of feed program, I try to make my posts relevant to the writing community as I seek to inspire others to reach the goals they have set for themselves.

I'm working hard to make this blog the best it can be and you will see some changes in the near future.  As for my issue of whether to have pictures or not with my blog...well, see for yourself...

This world is a big place and is made up of all types of people.  The input I received yesterday from all you lovely people out there simply shows me the level of caring and support within this writing community.  Many people gave me their honest opinion about my blog and it touches my heart to see the response yesterday's blog received.  I will continue to have pictures within my posts and I hope it is not too inconvenient for those who may follow me through other electronic devices.  I value each and every one of you, but if I did not stay true to the style of writer that I am...and THAT is being a VISUAL one...then you would no longer have the same underlying reason to keep coming back.

Thank you, dear readers, for the caring and support I received from you yesterday.  In lieu of my chartering an airplane and visiting each of you in person to thank you, I hope this will suffice...

    1. Thanks, Susanne, for stopping by. I couldn't continue to blog if I didn't enjoy what I'm doing but I also write for my readers and wanted to make sure I considered them in my decision.

      Have a wonderful day and come back any time!

  9. I've never thought about my posts being read on an electronic device! Yikes. I've just started including photos on my blog; I try to stick with one though, and make it a smaller one (except for today, in which I have 3). They can make pages slower to load.

    1. Thank you, Genevieve! I thought a lot about this because I wanted to do what was in the best interest of my readers but at the same time I couldn't change the basic way I write so in the end I had to keep the pictures in and hope I still have followers...;0)

      Thanks for stopping by and come back any time!

    1. Hi, Richard! I am going to take the lovely Laura's suggestions and try to tweak my blog in some ways but my writing style won't change and that means the pictures stay...just maybe fewer of them on most days...;0)

      I used to adore reading Calvin and Hobbes...can't really decide which one of those guys I actually like better...lol

      Thanks for stopping by and come back any time!
