Somebody call a whaaaaambulance!

Here's a little bloggy topic that lots o' bloggers wonder about:  how to increase readership. 

Q:  Why don't we just shut up and be happy with what we've got? 
A:  Because...

1.  We're bloggers.  We are diametrically opposed to shutting up.


2.  Blogging without feedback can get lonely.  It's like you're yelling all your fascinating tidbits and genius insights into a giant canyon and only hearing your own boring voice boomerang back.

The exchange of ideas is what makes blogging fun in my expert humble opinion.  I think we all want to feel as if we are making our readers feel something.  We want to make them think.  We want to feel heard.  We want them to learn something.  We want to make them laugh and pee a little.  We want to connect

And we also want to be discovered for the closet prodigies we are.

Or maybe that's just me.

Do not click to enlarge.  My forehead is too big as it is.

As opposed to my usual posts, which are full of practical information and useful tips, this one is a request for advice from YOU, my faithful few. 

How do you increase your blog readership?


  1. I'm not sure you want MY advice, but I will dump in on you anyway. I would just follow and comment on blogs you find interesting, maybe through Blog Frog. Your content is interesting so, I would think, once you get your blog out there, more people will start finding you on there own. Good luck!

    I am also blessed with a big forehead. :)

  2. Of course I want your advice! You're my favorite mommy blogger! Have you found networks to be a help?

    Five-headers UNITE!

  3. I don't have any advice, but I will tell you that I stumbled over here for Hip Homeschool Moms, and I thought your Golden Corral "song" was fabulous, so I posted on my Facebook that people should hop over here and read it... hope that helps.

  4. Aww, thanks Preecemom! You rock!
