Blog Bustin'

When I started blogging, I just wanted to have an outlet for my feelings, thoughts, ramblings and of course for my writing. As I started, I really loved the opportunities it presented to release a lot of the "stuff" that accumulates daily in my little head.

As I proceeded further along, I started reading more and more blogs from other individuals as well. That's usually a part of my daily routine now, reading my regular blogs and getting a peek into others lives.

However, I also get the "you should increase your readership" line from others and from other bloggers. The other thing I hear is that I should include more photos to make it more "real" and personal.

Here's my thing. I don't necessarily want every Tom, Dick and Harry out there to be able to read about my life and I certainly don't want them seeing my home or my children. Can you say creeeeeeppppy. Maybe I'm just old fashioned but I'm not a big fan of putting all of that out there for the world. I don't mind sharing my life, I quite enjoy it. I do try to keep it non-specific though.

I started thinking about it a little more and while I'm not comfortable with personal photos, maybe I'll send the link to my blog to a few more of my friends on different social networks. If you want to pass it along, feel free as well. I do know that more people read it than are listed in my followers.

I like hearing from people, I like knowing people are enjoying and reading. But I also kind of like knowing who is reading and what type of person they are as well.

Did I mention before that I have control issues?
