Thinking of shutting it down... :(

I've been thinking of shutting down my blog :( I don't seem to get many, if any, people checking me out. I try to post my crafts and my views on my family and some of the crazy and fun things we do. Sometimes I think it's because I'm new to this, but I get disappointed sometimes when I check out my site and no one has been around.

So here I sit, having a pity party for myself.... Maybe I'll get over it and stay, but I am going to give shutting this down some serious thought. If anyone out there has any advice for me, I'd appreciate it.

I know, I know...wah, wah,

On a lighter note...I did get that camper clean and ready for camping next weekend!!! YAY! I am sooo excited! I think it's Ocean City bound for us. If I decide to keep my blog, I will post on this later.

Take Care and Happy Crafting!

I say don't give it up just yet. If it something you enjoy - do it for a creative outlet. Let your family and friends know you are out there and I'm sure they will be happy to stop by and pay you a visit. Don't get discouraged, it will just take some time. I'm learning myself. Have a happy day!Cathy

Please don't shut your door!!! I am finding that posting on MJF often, leaving comments on blogs, like you did for my Give-Away brings the gals knocking and coming in for a visit! Just get out there and say hey! Have a little Give-Away! (wink, wink!) I LOVE your Farmgirl patch! You did a great job on it! Farmgirl Hugs, Maryjane Lee #44

Ohno, don't do that! I actually read several of your posts, but sometimes don't have time to leave comments. I've found it to be the same with my blog. Sometimes I barely see a comment, and then am surprised later when I get an email or so that mentions people read my stuff regularly. Big Hugs!

Don't shut down!!!! I have slow days too, but like the other ladys said, the more you commnet on others, the more likely they are to check your out. Also, make sure you join swaps and stuff because you get to know alot of people that way. I find that when i post neew pictures everyday, people start becoming regular visitors : ) Good luck!

please dont close your blog !! I use to think no one read mine and then i got a counter from blogpatrol and i had alot of people reading --just not commenting. I Love a blog too cause i can print out parts of it to mail my friends who arent on the compuer . That way they can see what all I am working on

I know this is an old post.. but I was thinking about what you said in it. I have started blogs, then quit...feeling that it was a useless endeavor because no one but me looked at them. But I finally decided that it didn't matter. I blog for me, to document who I am and the order of my days. I love your blog though, its homey and comfortable and fun to visit!
