A Blogger's Heartfelt Thanks!

June 21, 2010


I don't think I'm good at this blogging thing. I don't read very fast, so it takes me a long time to get through a book. I've never been a fast reader, but now that I have 2 little girls, it's even worse. Plus, I don't think I'm good at relating to people. I just don't think I have the personality that people are drawn to.

I see other blogs that have 100+ followers and I can see why they do. The time and energy they put into their blogs is amazing. They win awards and I can completely see why. I, however, don't have that kind of time an energy at my leisure anymore.

I am incredibly honored to have the followers that I do. They are patient and understanding, and don't complain when I go awhile between posts. It's nice to know that they are with me for the ride- no matter how slow going it may be. I don't think I'll ever be one of those blogger's with 100s of followers. To be honest, I'd be perfectly happy and satisfied with about 50.

I've learned to be a reserved person. Maybe one day I'll stop living in the shell I hide in. For now, I want to thank those of you who visit my blog, comment on it, and follow it. Thank you for your support and letting me be a part of your lives. You will never know how much it means to me. I love books and am truly honored to share that love with you.
Love, Jen

You would be surprised how many bloggers are shy & introverted - including myself. Sometimes it's easier to put yourself out there through your blog than in real life. I am super shy but blogging has really helped me break out a little and do things I would never do before!
Remember it's quality - not quanity! Blog whenever you feel like it or have time - there aren't any rules...it's your blog!

Jen, I think you're great at blogging! Your reviews are always interesting, well written, and informative, and I also love your book memories and stories of your life. I would never have had the guts to start a blog if it weren't for you, because I don't have a lot of confidence where this kind of stuff is concerned. So thank you for helping me get out in the blogging world! Also, I think you have a great personality. I don't think I've ever made friends with a customer at work before.
