Good morning beautiful humans, happy Friday! Thank you for spending part of your morning with me or evening depending on where you live in this great big beautiful world. Welcome to Life with Lane, my life through words, pictures, and food!
My blogiversary is coming up in a month or so I think. I’m finally getting my footing and figuring this blogging thing out. I feel as if I’m doing pretty good. I get new followers now almost on a daily basis. I have more visitors and views each day. My blog is moving forward and I’m not at a standstill. I am happy with the direction my blog is going.
I’m at 250 followers and less than a month ago I was at 200. So, yes my blog is getting better each day. I’ve noticed that most of my followers are strangers, people that I’ve never met in my life. I come from a pretty big family and I have lots of acquaintances and friends. However, they only make up about 5% of my followers. Maybe less than that.
I’ve asked friends and family to follow me and they say they will but the follows haven’t happened. Funny thing is, when I meet people at work or when I’m out and about and tell them about my blog, they follow me almost immediately. It makes me wonder, why is it easier for strangers to support me than my own family and friends?
I wonder how accurate that quote above is really is. Of course anyone can become a blogger, so that would be silly. I would really like to know the reason. I have a friend that sales Mary Kay and even though I don’t really like it, I buy from her. I always try to support my family and friends.
Why is it easier for strangers to support us than family and friends? Of course I don’t mean my immediate family, they all follow me! Let me know your thoughts. I mean more than just about following your blog, I mean your T-shirt business, tax office, restaurant, clothing line, et. One more thing, why do people hate to see you happy?
Thanks for reading my blog. Have a wonderful blessed day and always be kind. Follow me on Instagram @lifewithlane14
