This past week I reached several milestones: I celebrated my 53rd birthday; reached my 100th follower on Twitter; and got my last post featured on BlogHer.
My first personal post on WordPress.com was on January 11, 2014. I had made several attempts to start a blog previously but had lost focus and direction until Jan 11.
Thanks to the WordPress community for helping me through this process. I have so much to learn about blogging. Bloggers like JohnStepper’s has inspired me. ShunPwrites has given me pointers and even nominated me for a Liebster award.
I couldn’t have written my second post had it not been for the encouragement I receive from fellow bloggers. Your likes, comments and referrals are really appreciated. I look forward to following and reading many more blog posts and when a particular post strikes a cord, reblog, tweet, like or comment as I’m lead.
My desire going forward is to aim to write quality pieces that are of interest/help to others. If you can, please check out my postings on NaBloPoMo throughout the Month of March. I hope to use this platform to improve my writing skills and of course gain more exposure for Make It Yours. I also welcome your follow on Twitter, Pinterest, and of course here on WordPress.com
I continue to read and enjoy the blogs I currently follow Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013 and Life in the Boomer Lane, among others. I look forward to reading and following many more. Special thanks to WordPress for Freshly Pressed and The Daily Post – awesome features. I feel like I have a personal mentor with The Daily Post. So many useful tips for a novice blogger like myself.
