*Warning: spilling of the heart in this post*
I know we bloggers don't do what we do for the followers, but as I just lost some followers and have been doing it for a year and still have under 50, I'm having a slight crisis of faith. I am aware of how silly it is to get upset about the number of followers, or readers and commenter's. And yet I just cried because I suddenly felt so depressed and useless for putting all this effort into my blog and hardly anyone reads it! Don't get me wrong, I am ever so grateful for those of you that do read my blog regularly, but I can't help compare myself to other blogger friends, those with hundreds of followers...
Anyway, I'm going to take a leaf out of Sophie's book and ask you what you want to see on this blog! Would you like to see:
- personal posts
- blog tours
- movie reviews
- discussion posts
- guest posts
- anything else?
For your consideration, I've also been thinking of some ideas:
- I've already asked Faye to design me a pretty new banner
- I have been debating trying to make some sort of rating system to put at the end of my reviews
- If I can come up with some ideas, how about a few themed weeks a year? Like love/sex in YA, or top ten stuff, or guest posts about blogging, or anything else I can think of?
I've been doing this for over a year but apparently am still very much a noob when it comes to encouraging followers and loyal commenter's, so any ideas are welcome! Seriously you guys, I love that I have any readers at all but I would love to spread the book love as far as possible!
