Even though I am healthy enough to engage new followers, it’s only fair that I admit to experiencing a little performance anxiety when over one hundred new followers appeared after my post was featured on Freshly Pressed. It may be normal to ask if I’m blogger enough to keep them satisfied, but I’m at an age when I know what I’m made of and it didn’t occur to me that stiff competition might make it harder to focus on the task at hand. Readers do have thousands of other blogs from which to choose. So, lying down on the job is not an option.
I began to notice getting up in the morning was more difficult than usual. I tried to convince myself it was all in my head, but clearly it was time to take action. Procrastination only works if you have something else to do, and since my NaNoWriMo project has completely stalled and I can’t get anyone to buy into my idea of printable clothing, there’s only the laundry and blogging. I was about to give up my sanity altogether, fall prostrate on the sofa and watch episodes of Preppers on NatGeo when along came this exciting offer for mood enhancing blog bling that aroused my desire to stand and deliver.
Thanks to Freshly DePressed, now I know if my blog starts to go flat or if I experience a sudden loss of vision while trying to keep it up, I should seek immediate help from awesome bloggers who are ready to offer support. When the idea came along to join a support group for bloggers feeling Freshly DePressed, I knew the time was right.***The Fine Print***An opportunity to guest post on Freshly DePressed is too good to pass up. Side effects may include awesomeness that won’t go away.
What more could a blogger want when their 15 minutes of fame is over?
