I started my blog less than 5 months ago! During this time, I've gotten (nearly) 100 followers, many blogging "attaboys" from my peers, requests for two articles on autism, and I won Scholastic "Parent and Child" Magazine's Top Parent Blogger award on Special Need Issues. I have made $29.67 so far on my Google ads, although I have yet to see a penny of this (sorry hubby, you can't quit your job yet).
The biggest discovery I have made, however, is the blogging community. When I started blogging, I pictured a solitary activity--just me and the computer while thousands of people read my words of wisdom as I reaped millions off my Google ads. What I found out is that bloggers actually network with each other and support each others efforts! We comment on blogs and commiserate and have a great time. It's really made blogging fun! I see so many blogs out there that just blow me away, and make me realize that I have a lot of growing to do as a writer.
In the meantime, I'll keep blogging away and enjoying every minute of it! If you take the time to read my posts, I want to extend a thank you! It is appreciated!
Here's to another 100 posts! Heck, here's to thousands more!
