If you’re a blogger, you have fails. I have fails. I’m currently trying to correct those blogging fails right now too. After 4 years blogging (LinkedIn just told me that I just had a blogging anniversary on May 4th.) I have made several mistakes. Actually, alot of mistakes.
After reading Alisha Nicole’s testimonial, I’ve decided to get back on track with this personal blog. I’ve been consistently blogging daily on my other blog, but I feel like I’m drowning with it. I’ve created a local niche I feel where my opinion doesn’t want to be heard outside of weekend events for kids. It’s just not a blog for personal opinion on certain topics.
I’ve created a great local mom blog, but if I say something others don’t like, I feel like I’ve made enemies on every corner in my community where everyone pretty much knows everyone. This isn’t a good feeling.
Mommy, The Queen is my original blog. I have posts that go way back before I knew what I was doing. I’ve deleted the earlier years’ content. That’s one HUGE blogging fail. Oh boy.
Blogging mistakes I’ve left out of the first four years:
I didn’t really network with others.
I didn’t attend many NYC blogger meetups.
I didn’t use a planning calendar so I was kinda all over the place (still am some days).
Twitter makes my head spin so I didn’t go on it often, but I am more active now (creating lists is KEY!).
I don’t really participate in Twitter parties (huge fail).
I didn’t tag or use categories so folks could easily find my content on the blog.
I rarely remembered the log in for this blog so I didn’t log in which means I didn’t write much content.
I want to be totally transparent but feel like I can’t because of my primary blog. It didn’t sit well with me knowing that my neighbors or class mom knows all of my inner thoughts.
But this is why I’m reviving this blog. I’m going to take the time to rebuild and rebrand myself as Mommy The Queen and get this baby back up off the ground.
Follow me on my journey to self expression and sharing many of my personal stories. I have a lot of them.
