How Do You Do It?

I am so excited! For the longest time I only had a handful of followers. But that number has been steadily increasing. I am thrilled to be able to make new friends but I am also concerned about keeping up with everyone. One of my new friends, she knows who she is (smiles) emails personal notes to her followers. I am in awe of that. What are some tips you can give me to help me stay connected, especially as my new friends come on board?


  1. Barb, you are an amazing person - you are warm and loving - and you want blog friends - believe me - with that combination - they will stay!


  2. Barb,

    I am sticking around! I enjoy your blog! Carol

  3. I'm happy to meet new folks too. To try and keep up, I use my Blogger Dashboard to see who's posted what. It gives you a little blurb along with the title of each post. I don't always remember to go there, but it's quite a useful too.

  4. I don't know how it's possible to keep up with every one of your followers, unless you just have a handful. I set my comments so that they need my approval to publish. That way I can see which post people comment on, and respond to them in my own comment section.

    As far as reading their blogs, I go down my blog list every evening and read the ones who have posted within the last day. I have been lurking around your blog for the past couple of months, and decided to link you when I started my newest blog. I found you at Donna's Book Pub.

    Hope my icon is not too scary! I am a teacher, and prefer to remain anonymous.

  5. Welcome! Thank you for your helpful tips. I am a teacher too. (part-time now)
