Hey girls, can I ask you for some advice? I'm kind of starting to feel like no one is reading my blog anymore. I don't have many followers or much feedback. What am I doing wrong? What do I need to improve on? What kind of posts do you want to see more of? I'm feeling kind of discouraged right now, because this blog isn't nearly as fun for me anymore. I know that numbers don't matter, and I'm not saying that I think my blog should be immensely popular, I just wish I had more followers. Everyone else who started a blog around the same time as me seems to have a lot more followers. Any advice you can give me would be greatly, greatly appreciated. I have actually been seriously considering deleting this blog, because I don't feel like I'm getting anything out of it anymore. I enjoy blogging, but it's no fun when it's completely one-sided. I feel very selfish and whiny right now, but I just wanted to let you guys know how I'm feeling and that I would appreciate your help!


  1. Kristin, you are an amazing blogger, and I have really enjoyed reading your blog. Everyone goes through stages like this, where they feel as if nobody is reading, or commenting on their blog, but I promise, that if you stick with it, and give it a little hope, you will see improvement. I have gone through many stages where I havn't gotten any new followers, and then out of no where I would lose one. I would get really discouraged, but I want you to know that it doesn't last forever, and there is one person out there reading your blog (me!)
    I encourage you to find what you enjoy writing about, not just write what you think people want to see. I have been learning that lesson lately. Show your individuality, and authenticity, and be the girl that God made you to be, and you will find more joy in this blog, I promise :) ♥


    1. Thanks for the encouragement :) I really appreciate it!

  2. Kristin, I love your blog! And I'm sure all your followers do too, that is why they followed. :) I feel the same way sometimes. What I usually do is leave by blog link after my name when I leave a comment.

    Hope this helps!

  3. Hey, Kristin!

    Please, please, please don't delete your blog! I really enjoy visiting here and reading what you post. :)

    My advice would be this: post things that you would want to read. Chances are, if you think it's boring, your readers will think it boring as well. If you enjoy it, then your readers will, too.

    To get more followers, you must "broadcast" your blog. Follow other people's blogs, leave lots of comments, get your name out there. The more people know about you, the more they will want to follow your blog.

    As a moral boost, I'd recommend putting the reactions thingummy at the bottom of your posts. You can find this by going to your layout page, then clicking "edit" on the bottom of the blog posts box. This is most like the "like" button on Facebook. It allows your readers to leave a response without having to make a comment.

    Also, two other things that I've found helpful: guest posting and contests. Posting on guest blogs and allowing guests to post on your blog allows interaction with other blogs and could gain you followers from the guest blog. Contests, whether they be caption based, picture based, etc. are also a good way to get yourself out there.

    Hope this helped! :)

    1. Thanks so much! Those are some good tips :) I might have to try hosting a contest, as soon as I think of a good idea!


Thanks for commenting! It truly makes my day.
