My Blogging Story – The 1st 100 Readers!

Stanford Smith from PushingSocial.com recently put out a request to his readers to share a story. He wanted people to write about how they gained the first 100 readers on their blog. I was very excited to take part. You can see my submission here:

I was :

  • scared
  • apprehensive
  • skeptical
  • overwhelmed
  • nervous

… as I embarked on the first part of my blogging journey! But in January 2012 I stopped thinking about it and finally TOOK ACTION!

I did not think anyone would care what I would have to say. I did not think I would get any comments. I closed my eyes and hoped for at least a few views of my first post.

From the moment that I got my first comment (from somebody other than a family member or close friend) I WAS HOOKED!

I still remember the feeling that came over me when I received an email from a reader thanking me for writing a post. It had affected them in a positive way.

Once again, you can check out my story at:

There is a method to the madness though. Please read my story, others, and what the heck, take 10 minutes and share your story for Stanford too. If you are just starting out, there should be great ideas to implement ASAP!

  • If you have any helpful blogging resources that got the ball rolling, or keep you motivated on a regular basis, would love if you commented below!

Pushing Social is one of my favourites, but I would love to hear what else is out there.

Have an incredible day!
