"All I Want for Christmas Is Youuuuu!"
Powered by mp3skull.com
Sorry, this post did not seem appropriate unless there was a corresponding Christmas song as background music. I usually avoid answering the question "what do you want this year?" when the holidays roll around, but this year I have a specific thing that I would like from each of you. I feel a bit selfish, but I promise it won't result in an empty savings account or cause you to chase down a gift across town. Instead, I simply want to know one thing:
Do you read my blog?
That's it. Plain and Simple.
Why? You may ask. I'm happy to explain.
One, I want to know my readership. Google statistics only shows me numbers, but no names, faces or your favorite ice cream flavor. In other words, I'm curious who those hundreds of clicks are that make a statistic. I'd love to know more about you, follow along on your blog (if you have one), and understand how people to connect to this one.
I feel as if I am just getting my feet wet in the sea of one million blogs and it's SUPER helpful to know how you are landing on my page. Maybe via Facebook? A random Google search? Or maybe you are interested in a Sproodle and Maizy showed up on your images! I know, she is quite irresistible.
Secondly, it selfishly encourages me to continue to write and share. In all honesty, I started to blog because I love it. But obviously, I love that others love it too! However, those days when I'm severely lacking motivation, it helps to know that maybe, just maybe, I could encourage or up lift someone else if I just took the time.
Third, I'd eventually love to partner with other blogs for giveaways and guest posts. There's such a wealth of knowledge out there in blog land, and it'd be a waste to never dive into it. Having followers helps to make that possible. Maybe that is a five year plan, or a 6 month dream, but either way- having a visual of the number of followers on a blog makes it more attractive on multiple levels.
Okay! That's it. I humbly ask you for my gift now :)
So, how can we make that happen? Glad you asked- it's super easy!

*Hopefully*, you will now have this song in your head for the remainder of the evening, which means various renditions while dancing in your PJs. I, personally, couldn't think of a better way to spend Boxing Day.
