Time to Change

 
 
 


I'm sorry. I've been so selfish lately.

Not only with my family and friends, but with my interactions with my fellow bloggers as well.
All I've been thinking with my relationships is "What can I get out of this?"
 I haven't cared about how I can help others, or how they might feel. I only do things when I want to do things, and only cared about what I want to care about.

With my blog, all I've really been focused on is growing my followers. I haven't really viewed anyone else's blogs, or commented for a reason besides wanting them to see my link. I'm not saying I did this with everyone; I really did have some genuine comments. But they should always be because I really enjoyed what they were saying.

So this is a big sorry. I won't be perfect, but I want to care more about you all. I'm not only going to care about followers or benefits (while it IS still important, and I will of course be very happy to get more followers). But I think instead of viewing follows as something I have earned, I am going to view them as something to be grateful for.

Thank you all my followers, readers, family, and friends for loving me and supporting me, even the selfish me! I love you all!

  5. Ah, I can relate so much. This is a bit embarrassing to admit but I used to have a personal style blog, and I would post generic comments with my link to other bloggers' posts to get traffic.. The thing is - that gets you clicks but no real engagement. It was an extremely stupid idea, and I don't think I would ever do it again.
    But you know, a little selfishness cannot hurt. ;) xx

    1. I tried the whole link/comment thing too...and yes, it didn't work out as I thought it would!
      And yes, of course I will still promote my blog and hope for the best, but I would like to do it in a way that won't seem cheesy or superficial!:) xx
