Not long ago, a new blogger friend, Janna, posted about the difference between being small and connected or big and anonymous.
It was kind of funny because just days before she posted about this, I was thinking to myself, “How in the world am I going to get more followers? I would really like some more followers.” I caught myself thinking these things and stopped.
I started thinking about what a blessing my current blogging has been.
I am getting to know some really cool women. Incredible women. If I had thousands or even hundreds of people following my blog, would I be so blessed to get to know these people?
No and I am so blessed.
I would rather be small and connected than big and anonymous.
Honestly, I would LOVE to be another MckMama/Pioneer Woman, but I’m not. I am Gianna (Giannamama if you will) and I have AWESOME friends/followers. You are friends and I am enjoying you entirely!
Also, just a couple of days ago, Karen (another new friend), posted about blogging comments. These seemed to go together for me. I hope and pray for LOTS of comments. But you know the last time I had 11 comments (or whatever), it was kind of not so great. Comments don’t mean you are liked or even validated. Comments mean someone has something to say, and it doesn’t mean what you wrote was so inspiring. I am going to be thankful for my 3 comments that I get regularly that make me smile.
I do like to be challenged.
I don’t think I’m ready to be insulted and attacked regularly.
