Arghhhhhhh bored so bored!

I cant shake the feeling of being bored today, bored of what I am not 100% sure Facebook is losing its appeal, mafia wars is boring me, Twitter is annoying me. I want this blog to grow so badly but I don’t know how to improve it.

Why wont people read it when I spend all day whoring it out on facebook and twitter is it because of the subject matter? seems to be only football blogs matter on twitter so i need to reevaluate the people I follow on there if they are not prepared to read my posts because they are bloody good and surely a better read than “this person is joining that club” etc

One of the things about this site is the stats pages where it shows views by country and so far the USA is miles in front from the UK which shows me that my facebook friends are more interested than my twitter “followers”  so how do I publicise better? Is it just a case of word of mouth and waiting for the masses to arrive?

If your a fellow blogger like me please feel free to share some tips and ideas. Is upgrading and going pro the way to go? what am i missing? how do i get things like a contact tab let alone the all important donate link 😀

Patience is not a virtue I possess!

Anyways back to my boredom I have become a bit of a domestic god this week I have even set a new record of cooking dinner 3 nights in a row! and washed up and done the washing and walked to the shops and used the hoover! No wonder i am bored LOL  At least I had the football on TV tonight to keep me entertained besides the 3 year old wanting to jump all over me.

And why is it so damn hot in my flat! I hate the summertime my flat doubles as a sauna i sit here at the pc with sweat pouring off me! its a miracle i stay the size i am when its so hot in here! I will take the rain over the heat anyday of the week and call me a miserable bastard all you want i just cant deal with the heat.

Is it funny that I miss the company of some facebook friends who I have grown close to over the years? I love how people from such different walks of life are drawn together by an online game and develop into close friends despite never meeting but then they just stop logging into facebook and you never hear from them again, then you feel guilty because maybe you didn’t reply to a message or forgot a birthday. Besides my angel from texas I dont speak to anyone everyday and I used to have 5 or 6 people i could rely on daily to keep me amused!

Would be better if I had some friends in real life i could rely on but ho hum!

Anyways feels like the ramblings of a mad man today but i felt the need to write and moan LOL

  1. Honestly you are not alone. I’m sorry that I can’t tell you about blogging, but I can tell you how very hard it is to make friends. I have moved a lot in my life and it is never ever easy and I always leave wondering if they are friends or just people I know. They never seem to last long. I can say I truly have only about 5 real friends in my entire lifetime. I miss them terribly.

  2. Hello Wee Gee here. Sorry you’re feeling a bit sick and tired of it all today.

    Here are some blogging tips in response to your questions:

    I think the key to blogging is patience (sorry) – you need to build up themes, personality etc so that people know who you are and what you’re about. So make sure you post often and post well and beyond that just keep on plugging away.

    Don’t get too bogged down in the number of followers thing – It’s quality not quantity and if you keep writing the followers will come in time.

    Read plenty of blogs that interest you, follow those you love. WordPress is a little community in itself so you may make friends and build a follower base without Facebook or Twitter.

    There’s loads of information on Learn WordPress http://learn.wordpress.com/ as well as in the support forums. That might help you work out some of the finer details of design. A quick Google of whatever you’re trying to do can help too.

    My view of Pro is that it probably isn’t worth it and you’d have to be absolutely certain you were committed to the Blog. If I were you I’d wait a while to see how you feel once things get going.

    Finally. If I get time later on I’ll send you a quick ‘how to’ so you can get that big shiny button up on your blog 🙂

    Take care x

  3. I suggest that you reply to every comment that is made on each and every post. If someone takes the time to read your post, you’re doing good. If someone takes the time to then comment on that post, you’re doing an excellent job!! If they’ve taken that much time, you need to let them know you appreciate them — so reply, thank them for reading and commenting, and if you have it in you, respond to what they’ve said. You can sometimes get a dialogue going this way. You will also win more followers who will turn into friends this way!! Payback the respect!! 🙂

    • Hi Kathy thank you for stopping by. This is such a great response. This post was one of more “woe is me” posts that happen from time to time lol but your advice is great and I couldnt agree more with it especially now I am a lot more versed and comfortable in the wordpress community.
