I’ve been blogging for three weeks now. It seems like ages but in reality it’s only 21 days. The trouble is I get ahead of myself and let the road marked Excitement carry me away to Disappointmentville.
I wrote a script fairly recently, and by chance met someone who said he can pass it on to some industry bods. I met them, they seemed ok, I gave them my script rather naively due to my excitement, and haven’t heard much since. I’m not saying I never will, but I’m realistic to know that I am dreaming if I think the phone will ring.
I am (compared to most others I’m sure) slowly getting a small following of rather nice bloggers and friends but I want more, more, more all the time. I want 10,000 followers already! Why haven’t I? What’s wrong with me? Is it my content? My site? My tags?
To be honest, I have crafted my site into something that I would be more than happy to visit. I think it looks nice, it seems quite organised and there are some nice articles on it. Obviously three weeks is no time at all in the blogosphere. So I KNOW I’m getting ahead of myself but I just can’t stop myself.
So, to refer to the question that heads this post, when do I consider paying a monthly fee to have my own ‘wordpress’ free address? Is it now, right from the off? Or is it in a years time? Or never?
Do I need X amount of followers before I even consider it, or do I need to start advertising and offering a service to make it worthwhile?
As I am new to this, I would love to hear what advice people can give about such matters. So please, get in touch and let me know.
