Happy birthday, The Cheerful Times!
On Friday, October 17th, WordPress notified me that it was the second anniversary of registering my blog. My first thought was “Yikes… I’m averaging about one post every two months.”
Not the most attentive of me.
However, my second thought was that all things considered, I’m actually doing pretty well! I have a pretty decent amount of subscribers, a steady flow of traffic, and people who tell me they look forward to seeing my next post in their newsfeeds. What more could a casual blogger who just desired a writing outlet to spread joy and craftiness to the world want? Not much, that’s what. I’m very happy thanks to you!
I thought my two-year anniversary was an appropriate time to announce that I’m bringing The Cheerful Times to even more people: I joined Bloglovin’! Check out The Cheerful Times on Bloglovin’ here. You may have seen the Bloglovin’ button I made for my blog, starring a sleepy Abby, in my sidebar.
Essentially, Bloglovin’ is a website that allows you to put all your favorite blogs and their updates in one feed, regardless of the blog platform or whether or not you have a WordPress account. So now WordPress users aren’t the only ones who can easily subscribe and view my content — anyone with a Bloglovin’ account can!
Another update: starting on Monday I’m going to attempt to take part in Blogging 201: Branding and Growth, a course through WordPress’ Blogging University program! It will be fun to see what impact it has, and if I can keep up with the daily tasks 😉
Thank you to all who have visited and enjoyed my content, you made these two years very cheerful indeed. Here’s to many more!
Have you used Bloglovin’ before, for your blog or for a reader? Share your experiences!
