Glad Ya' Stuck With It? Sure Am!

Look what just turned 8-months! You ask what's that? Our peach tree? No, it's Life with Ragdolls! Yup, that's right my blog turned 8-months old on March 14th, 2014. Gosh, it seems just yesterday I was trying to decided what to write about; no wait, I was, but I was talking about how I came to write this blog of mine. It was hard to do, not just to decided what to write about, but also how to find new followers, etc. It was hard, really it was; but look at me now, I stuck with this--didn't I? 
I remember some time in August (or maybe it was late July?) I don't remember (hypocrite, I literally just said that I remembered that time, geez, Ragdoll Mommy), well anyways I was struggling to reach 100 page reviews, now look at me with my 23,911 page reviews! Think I nailed it? Sure did.


So what made me stick with what I wrote down? Easy enough for me--one word; "hope". Yup, "hope" that I'd nail that 100 page review thing right, Ragdoll Mommy? Lol, jk (just kidding!). Actually no, I continued because I enjoyed doing what I was doing, regardless if someone else didn't do so. 
I actually started out blogging for other people, yeah you heard that right. I wanted other people to know about Nico&Anya; because whenever we go places with them everyone wants my cats, lol) so I thought a blog might help with people seeing them. Turns out I'm now blogging for me. I have literally started 4 blogs in under a year, all trying to be more popular than my first ever one--Life with Ragdolls. I thought I wasn't succeeding where others have failed (tell you that story some other day), no I just meant succeeding with this blog. Honestly, I would have seriously stopped doing what I was doing in, probably about 4-weeks (maybe, if I was lucky enough), I was giving myself the good old treatment called "low confidence". Why? Good question, for somethings we may never know. 
Now I can't even imagine my life without my blog. I adore my blog, my followers, my page reviews, my subscribers, my readers, my comments, everything. It's all a gift that I have once again achieved, (with the help of you guys obviously.....)





Now this content comes from deep in my heart, so I'm gonna publish this before I might change my mind. **wink wink**










Hugs,

Ragdoll Mommy, Star, Saphira, Nico and last but certainly not least Anya~

  5. I have never had as many followers and comments as I had back on Spaces. I'm sure much of that is ego because I don't always have something to write about. Will people find it interesting. Still I have made some wonderful friends over the last 7 years.
    Congrats on your 8 month anniversary.
