Growing Slowly but Surely!




I am so happy! I just recieved my 200th follower! I know I have not ever looked at how many followers I have. I have never really focused on getting followers. I have been super happy and through out this whole year I have said Thank you to all of you over and over again.

Today is no different, Thank you for helping me achieve a blog that has you coming back for more. To see an image letting me know that I have gained more followers is motivating and gives me pleasure that my platform is growing. I might not be a powerblogging ( I have learned a few things from them OM especially!!), but using some tips from HIM (you know who!!) has helped me. 

So I want to say once again

THANK YOU FOLLOWERS NEW AND NOT SO NEW! If it wasn’t for you to click that follow button I would not have been able to reach this number.

I also want to thak my followers on TWITTER! Yes, you also deserve recogniztion because looking at my followers I have approx 60 followers since I looked two weeks ago.  So THANK YOU to you guys as well.

For the ones that have not hit the follow button, it is okay. If you come back to read over and over again I can tell by my views and I want to thank you as well. 

Now, I don’t feel good today so I might be out for a couple of days… Seems this weather chang in LA is really getting to me. 

Insha’Allah my blog grows more and I am able to give you guys interesting post for you guys to come back.

Yippeee!!

Until Next Time,

No Response… Really?? Why so Rude?


I know many of you have jobs, or other responsibilities. You can’t afford to sit in front of your computer, ipad, smartphone etc… all day to check out and respond to your commenters.

What I don’t understand how you put your thought into creating a post and sharing it to the internet world. Then when you get feedback, regardless if it is right away or months if not years later you don’t reply back?

I understand for the bloggers that do not moderate their comments. How would you know if anyone commented unless you go in a check. One thing I am learning is that if you do moderate you receive either emails, texts or notifications on most of your electronical devices. There should not be an excuse

I know I am not the most popular or best blogger out there. I do understand that in the short year and half on this blog I have managed to get approximately 100 plus followers. I know not all of them like, comment or share my post. It is a good feeling to have followers. That feeling even gets better when they decide to comment, like or share my post.

If that is the case I try my best to reply. I am as said before a homemaker. Unless I have errands to run and once my chores are finished I have LITERALLY nothing to do. So yes, I may not be the usual blogger because I try to reply quickly to my followers because I have nothing but TIME. Even then sometimes I do not respond until a few days later and that is because I am either traveling visiting family, vacation or I am sick and do not have the energy to get on the internet.

If you have a blog you have a responsibility to your blog. You have a responsibility to your followers and anyone that actually comes and visits you and comments. They took that effort to not only like your post but to give you words of encouragement, criticism, or their own thoughts. Regardless you should comment with at least a Thank you or something!

If not (and the reason I love WordPress) is that you can disable comments on your post or blog. Like that there is not option for your followers except read and “take” what you give them.

No this isn’t a rant but it is a thought of all the post I am seeing. It seems that a lot of bloggers out there do feel “hurt” or get “annoyed” when they comment and give no response back. I know I have had that experience before.

Just some food for thought and something to think about. I am fairly new here still and have a lot to learn. I am just happy that my manners regardless in person, via phone, email or blogging I try to implement with the same curtsey and respect.

Until Next Time,

WordPress App restricts me.. Sorry


Just a note here

Usually when someone follows me I like to take the time and say thank you. I go to their blog and if I find it interesting for me I follow as well.

I really don’t know the “etiqutte” on WP. Saying this unfortunately I do not own a computer. The app on my iPad mini restricts me a lot. I try and go look at my new followers (by the way THANK YOU) but the app is acting up.

I have to put in my password everytime then there is a blank screen. If I go online I can log in but then if I want to follow I do not see that button.

Basically for all of my new followers that I have I want to say thank you very much and I hope I bring to you post that will hopefully keep you coming back for more. There are great blogs out there and until I am able to fully go and click the follow button I hope I am forgiven.

Well today is enough of post, have to do my “wifely” chores before hubby comes home lol..

Insha’Allah I will be writing more tomorrow.
