This spring marked the beginning of my third year as a blogger here at Better Living. Amazing, isn’t it? Sometimes I still wonder how I, the simply country girl, made it this far!
I readily admit I’ve almost given up several times. The reality of blogging is that you put out a lot for very slow return. In spite of this challenge, I find myself enjoying the process. I like having something to fight for, to apply myself toward.
But I must be honest with you. Something has been getting to me as of late. And I think it’s only fair to let you know the truth of the matter!
My Current Struggle
It’s this: you and I have a one-sided connection. I get to share about my lifestyle, my happenings, my hopes and dreams. And you? Most of you get to be silent partakers.
I don’t often hear from my regular readers. Outside of a few comments on the blog and my social media accounts, I’m virtually clueless to who you are.
And folks, I’m feeling…uncomfortable…with this reality!
Who You Are
I want to know who you are! My blog allows me to track the number of views I receive per day. But it doesn’t let me know if my writing has been greeted with eager eyes, if I’ve somehow helped or encouraged you. It doesn’t tell me what you like or dislike, how I can inspire you toward a better life.
I know nothing about you and in some cases, may not even be aware of your existence.
The blogging world is a quiet one. And I’m wondering if you’d be willing to break that silence in my world?
If so, here’s how you can help!
I Want to Know!
I’ve put together a short, get-to-know-you questionnaire. I’d be thrilled if you would take a few minutes to fill it out!
The information is private and goes directly to my (private) email account. In this way, I hope to learn more about my readership.
And you don’t need to be a homesteader, farmer, a hardcore gardener or avid home canner to take it! Today, it’s simply about getting to know you, my reader!
