Why Blogging Slowed Down
I haven’t been able to blog for a over a week now or follow a well planned out blogging routine inspite of all the post ideas running through my head. Other life issues are demanding for my attention.
What Has been Up with me:
My life these past few weeks has been a roller coaster of office work, workshop, deadlines and caring for my family. And in between I had to nurse my daughter who was under the weather and we both got stuck at home for days. I had to work from home and even missed going to church on Sunday. At first I murmured and complained about the stress but then I discovered it was an opportunity to bond even more with my daughter. We read the Bible together and I got to answer a lot of questions bugging her young mind. We also laughed a lot together too as we did some fun things together while I was recording some effects for a radio drama I was packaging.
I learned the value and blessings of family time. Just yesterday my children told me that I was the best mom in the whole wide world *wink *…. I felt really loved and special when my daughter added that she was happy that I took really good care of her when she was I’ll. Suddenly all my stress was worth it.
Work will never be more important than your family. Be there for them and share fond memories.
I will find a way around my blogging schedule soon. I wish you and your family great blessings this season!!

7 months into the Year be optimistic, start crossing off some things from your list and keep working. I enjoyed reading this post by Tikeetha – Welcome to July
Taking life as it comes. Check out Roos on her ranch taking it slow but still Working.
The whole day yesterday I was kind of sober looking forward to another day, another year when I celebrate my “born day” as a naughty friend of mine says.I wasn’t sure how I wanted to celebrate. It’s a work day… thankfully the weekend is just a few hours away today been Friday.
I decided to have a low key birthday and simply “maturedly” remind myself of how far I have come. My children don’t want to hear this matured angle to it…Lol They want to have a blast. And I am wondering who is actually supposed to be celebrating?! ￼￼ And seriously calls and text messages are pouring in. Thank you friends, family and loved ones. 💓
Thinking of my journey so far on this side of life, sincerely from my heart when I look back and compare it to where I am today, I must say God has been good to me. I haveenjoyed so many mercies!! Jesus has been my closest pal and the Secret to my drive.
And so it is all wrapped up in the lyrics of this song:
Lord I remember the place where you brought me from Lord I thank you for where I am today I see you doing new things in my life Lord I’m grateful for the future I see.
Thank you for staying with me, reading, liking and commenting on my post. You make me feel special already! So let’s have fun – drop the links to any post of your choice… I will visit, read and comment… So help me God. Plus I share over the weekend in a different post.
Hi, Blogging for me issomething I love to do. I mean it is a privilege to be able to share a story, an idea , an information with others.
You are making a difference in both your life and that of others. A great blessing I’d say.
So what happens whenyou really have things you would love to share on your blog but you just can’t squeeze in the time. And you get alerts from new blog post from your friends from the blogosphere…
I go like heeeeheee(yoruba way of saying haaaa) 😁. Meaning that I am really far behind.
So what do you do?
1) Understand and remind yourself about why you started blogging in the first place.
2) Go visiting other bloggers. Read their post, share your thoughts and just basically support what others do. I try to do this.
3) Maintain your own pace but try and share something even If it is just a photo.
4) Seriously you must balance your life. Other areas of your life do need attention. So stop feeling guilty about not been able to post more blogs as you would like too.
5) Keep blogging, keep doing your best.
I appreciate every blogger… It’s not easy… It’s a lot of hard work. Love you loads.
Be willing to step on and admire other people’s carpet as you spread your Carpet for others to step on.
The social media is here to stay and we all use it to make friends, socialize, share happy moments and not too happy ones. And this one I like it is a life saver in terms of reminding us about our friends and loved ones birthday.
Businesses, organizations and individuals promote their goods and services online. Here is the deal…
You want other people to click and like your post then you have to become interested in what others do.
I am still learning to share, use my skills and promoting what I do on social media platforms. But some thing I have learnt is don’t be a wall on your page or wall. Go ahead and get interested in what others are doing. Read their posts, comment and like it.
As you reach out others will reach out to you. What good is that “goods and services or skill” you are promoting if nobody clicks to take a look at what you have to say.
Don’t have an attitude of I have got a message that everyone needs and expect that People should naturally take a look.
Tips to get your Social Media posts noticed
* Pay attention to your title
* Learn more about the correct use of the language you write in
* Those who at least like your post, follow them, get interested in what they do too.
*Reach out to new people, organizations or businesses by reading their post, commenting and introduce yourself nicely too.
* Look for avenues to promote your post on other platforms not in a rude way. I mean don’t go posting sales of cars on the comment space of a daily devotional page simply because the traffic is high. I see this all the time it simply turns people off.
* Be authentic; be you
* Find and carve your own niche
* Write about what comes to you naturally.
* Be original; be yourself
* Slowly but surely you will grow and expand your sphere of customer base.
Even Celebraties and great brands get out there to promote and reach out to would be clients so go out and socialize
