Blog Blues

Blog Blues or a Blog slump .......... That's how I have felt this week. I work hard at my blog and try to be polite and comment on others good work. I join in link ups and if asked offer advice but I never seem to climb up any ranking systems at all. I agree that I started this blogging journey for my own pleasure. I never in a million years ever thought anyone would read it. So when I get comments from people from all over the world I am totally amazed. I have "met" some lovely people and had great chats which is so nice.

I would like to be a better blogger, as it is my nature to want to learn even at 55. I do try to enter into as much as I can in the blogging world and for most of the time I have fun.
I know it is rather silly but I love to see if I have climbed up a little on the blog ranks, as it makes be feel like
I got a pat on the head for a good job.

So when you have spent a whole month trying to post regular, taking part in link ups, and endlessly making comments on other peoples blogs , to find out you dropped again!!!!!!! Grrrrr
I have to admit I do think why bother? Are people finding this little blog boring? I'm I losing the plot?
How stupid am I lol! No don't answer that question!!

I will pick myself up and dust myself off and start all over again! Just as the song said I will keep going and try and remember I write for me. Not for the faceless rankings that only judge on numbers. I write from my life and my heart.

Ok rant over lol Happy weekend xx

    1. Ah thanks Carla you have been reading my stuff for over 40 years now lol

  2. I love reading your blog Jill, and I blog myself, but I have never read anywhere or anything about league tables or ranking for blogs, and I dont care anyway, I write for me, and I couldn't give a toss if no-one reads it. Dont bother checking the ranks, just enjoy what you do, there's plenty of us out here who enjoy reading what you write, please dont stop. Joy x x

    1. Thanks joy I hear what your saying and know you are right. You just wonder at times what they look at lol. And no I'm not stopping lol x

  3. I love your blog, Jill! I do not know what my blog ranking is, but I agree with does not matter. Enjoy what you are doing and know that there are some of us that read it, enjoy it, and care. :-)

    1. Thank you Lisa I'm glad you enjoy my silly writing . I do love it but it would be nice sometimes to climb up lol

  4. I know exactly what you mean. I was doing the same thing, for months I took part in everything I could, posted on other blogs, joined in etc etc but there never seemed to be any climb in rankings. In the end I decided to stop putting pressure on myself and just enjoy posting :)
    I enjoy reading your blog, I may not comment very often but I do read it regular :)

    1. Ah thanks Linda it is comment like yours and those above that make it worth it! I do wonder how they come up with these rank scores at times! Xx


I am always delighted when people take time to leave me a comment...thanks so much
