It’s not my first time owning a blog.
I know the key to gaining followers
I know you have to interact, engage, post regularly, reply to comments, write catchy titles, include pictures.
It’s not rocket science.
But it does require patience.
When I left my previous blog, I left it with 2300+ followers.
On a good day, 3% of those 2300 would actually respond to my post in the form of a like or comment.
You do the math 😉
Despite 3% not being an insanely high number, I felt that I could share my stories with a lot of people.
Even made some “friends” along the way.
For the first time I felt like I achieved something by myself from scratch.
I am not the “pride type”, but it did prove that with persistance things that seem impossible are in fact possible.
But then, life got in the way.
I left my old blog with a post about 1/3th of my hair breaking and falling off.
One my crown a pineapple of 1 cm sticked out.
It were absolutely horrific months. I thought I was going bald.
Making an appearance became difficult.
I even purchased a very expensive wig, which I never ended up wearing because I was scared it would damage my hair even more.
I always intented to delete my old blog.
I haven’t, yet.
If you would like to read my hair story, please go HERE.
I decided that if my hair could grow from scratch, so could my blog.
I wanted to leave my past behind. Start over.
See that the impossible is possible again after some patience and maintenance.
It’s been 10 months since my hair disaster occured.
But it’s to a reasonable length.
Now let’s see where my blog will be in 10 months.
Do you have the required patience with blogging?
Have you ever done something which required a lot of patience?
How tempted were you to give up?
