I was inspired by a post I read by Kelsye at Wise Ink Blog Ultimate Bloggers Guide to Growing Your Readership. Her list of ways to increase traffic got me thinking about how little I actually do to set schedules and really update readers on what to expect from my little slice of the inter-webs. In theory, this feature should help keep me on track and active. My long term goal is to turn this post into a weekly newsletter of sorts outlining where we are and where we are going.
My amazing Secret Sister did it again in October with this adorable gift box:
It came complete with a fox theme which I loved. I adore foxes! I’m not sure the theme was at all meant to be related to the book, Days of Blood & Starlight (because, you know, animal/human creations) or just a fall theme..but it really all worked together. The candle smells delicious, in fact, I’m enjoying it as I write this post! Pumpkin Peppercorn..!! I’ll also admit the chocolate didn’t last a day. I have no will power.
I find it so very difficult these days to track what day it is and I’m consistently being reminded that it’s not the day I think it is What do you mean its not Saturday?! It’s not that I’m losing interest in blogging, but more to do with motivation to write these days. I still check in on social media and am still reading, but once I’ve written a giant pile of cover letters I feel like being creative and social is the last thing I want to do. My hats off to the bloggers who are in full time school and working who still find the energy to write. I want to be you.
I need to make the effort to be punctual and active with Silk&Serif! I also need to create a new weekly post..because..why not?! Time to find something that gets the juices flowing!
