Question (and a call for your input)

Please ad your input to this post as it can reveal helpful and interesting stats for all to read….

A is for

All good things
come to an end
the bad ones
they ever cease?

It’s short. It’s sweet. It’s Friday, folks. Congratulations on making it to the weekend. Hard part is behind you and now you, hopefully, get some time off. Maybe ponder some questions like the one above. I’ve got this nagging sort of feeling that, since the bad ones teach us so much, they’re just kind of lingering on.

Well, on a side note, it looks like I need some help from you fellow bloggers out there. Got a little assignment that requires figuring out about how bloggers build and maintain their images, and how they interact with others for a class I’m taking. So, if you feel like helping a blogger out, I’d be much obliged. All I need you to do is leave a comment here and we can chat, or you can…

    I can’t offer much input in regard to building a following specifically in regard to blogging, but I suspect it maybe similar to other venues. I have a relatively small following on my blog. I have, in the past, had a larger following elsewhere, like Instagram.

    Two things came in to play. The first, which should be done regardless, is to write honestly as opposed to writing to be sensational or to the what we think an audience might want to read. Both, I think, are transparent over time. The people who stay with us will do so because we are genuine.

    As importantly, and perhaps more so, is the interaction which you have already demonstrated. We all have different gifts, and different ways in which we express. One is not above the other. We are all just people. When I see an account, anywhere, which does not interact with others, I know it’s likely just a matter of time before the luster fades, before the “fans” feel disconnected, and even abused.

    I haven’t been as good at interacting with others on WordPress as I have in the past. This post was a good reminder that I should find the time. There are always a few minutes to give, and those are real people behind the avatars.


    P.S. I put this comment on the original post as well. I was confused as to where I was, not realizing it was a reblog 🙂 Don’t mind me. Lol.

      Thanks for taking the time to share your information. I entirely agree we must be genuine. I have written and published a novel (last year) which I throw unto my blog site a couple of times a week on here and also facebook. My followers like to catch an occasional snippet from the book or some topic of conversation that’s stems from a paragraph or two. I find it’s a fun way to inter-relate readers with the novel. Gain their interests so to speak. I also love making friends, such as how you and I are doing right now. Suffering from chronic illness prevents me from having a social life outside of my home, therefore, fb and wp are my very dear friends. I am sure you would agree to that. I am going to be posting on just this very subject, perhaps even today seeing how I’ve gotten myself on a roll here. lol

      Thank a bunch for your advice. 🙂 Brenda
