My next goal: to be Freshly Pressed. For those of you familiar with WordPress you know that this is one of the highest goals to attain. To be featured on Freshly Pressed means instant fame. Well, maybe not, but it guarantees a lot of clicks and page views and comments. Freshly Pressed is kind of a display case of blogs that are awesome. Every day blogs are featured here at this page. It is a showcase of fabulous blogs of all kinds. It is an incredible way to find new blogs to follow and see what other folks are writing about.
I know that at least two of my bloggy friends have been featured recently. Christine at Random Thoughts from Midlife and Kathy from Reinventing the Event Horizon have both been featured. Actually I think both of them have been featured twice and they are both totally deserving. I am sure that I have missed several other blogs that I follow that have reached that status and my apologies to them if I have not listed you. (Blame it on the fuzzy headed allergy medicine head. These two are fresh in my recent memory!) Both of these above blogs are fascinating and totally different in content which is the beauty of blogging and being part of the WordPress family. We are all unique and yet—we all fit together in a wonderful patchwork of diversity and interest and passions. It is the perfect blend!
I have read so many articles and yes, blogs, about how to promote my own blog. I am doing pretty much everything that I want to do at this point. I am not willing to make the jump to allowing ads on my blog which is another avenue of attracting more traffic. I just don’t want that for my blog at this point. I have cleaned up my pages and made it easier to comment. I have a brand spanking new logo thanks to my son, Aaron, which is exactly what I imagined. I visit other blogs and comment. I try to share the bloggy love everywhere I go.
I have had my brushes with fame as you might recall when I was able to guest blog over at The Idiot Speaketh and when I was featured on a couple of other blogs like One Mixed Bag , Fiction with a Purpose, and Living on Less. And yet I am unsatisfied!! I want more, I tell you! MORE! And I will continue to fill your inbox with posts of cute kitty poses, teapots and family vacations until I attain that goal!!!! Be forewarned!!!
