I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I can't believe it is over. I am still puttering around my house putting things away. I am ready to give this house a face-lift. It needs some ORGANIZATION, and de-junking.
I need some help here. I am having some blogging struggles. After weeks of doing mucho research, it turns out that the publishing program I use to blog; no longer connects to Blogger. In fact, none of them connect any more. Blogger, blog, blogger!! Fix this problem. Ugh!!
Any hoo!! I am trying to decide if this blogging thing is worth it any more. Using Blogger will probably take more time, and will not look as desirable as I would like on my site.
Do people even read blogs anymore?
I'm not sure? Especially those of us who are not working professional blogs. I don't have regular content, so I know I am not a blog that people follow regularly. I am one of those mommy bloggers. You know, like we used to be before it became about business. I blog to keep record, and share goodness.
In fact, this fall I decided that I would no longer blog, and just use the time to scrapbook instead; which is essentially still record keeping, right? Well, after some prayer on the subject, I felt that God wanted me to keep blogging.
I know that blogs are used for so much good.
....so what I am asking is? is this the end of the road for JandA&Co.?
No! I am not leaving this decision up to you, but I would really love for you to weigh in.
...and, I will not be offended if you say that blogging isn't worth it anymore. I won't have hurt feelings if you say that it is a waste of my time, and not a blog many are even interested in. It is honesty that will help my decision process.
I would love to hear how you feel. Do you think that this blog is being used for good? Is that why I have felt the pull from God? Is this worth it for me to keep this up, and work out the kinks in blogger?
Or, is it time to put my efforts somewhere else?
Also, if you know of a way around this little situation with blogger, I would love to know about that too.
I also know that I can move my blog to a new site. Is that worth it? Anyone know?
If so, and it costs money; is it worth it for me to move ahead with that when I am not a professional blogger?
Please weigh in, and help me know what to do?
With love, blogger for 8 years now(this month)
Andrea of JandA&Co.
