20 Things That Will Make a Blogger Happy #ThrowbackThursday #BloggingGals

Blogging is hard. In order for our blogs to grow we have to put in hours of graft, master social media and get emotionally attached to our blog stats.

Given the fact that blogging is so tough we end up finding happiness in things that ordinary people would probably roll their eyes at.

Check out the blogger in the photo who has just realised that all her links on her latest post work!  To an ordinary person this situation would not bring great excitement but to a blogger this sort of thing can result in a leap into the air and a shriek of joy.

Here at BlondeWriteMore we have compiled an exclusive list of things that will make a blogger goofy happy…

  1. A sharp spike to their blog stats.
  2. Readers commenting on how beautiful and amazing their new blog theme looks.
  3. A successful blogger with a large following re-blogging their blog post.
  4. Their latest blog post causing a Twitter meltdown.
  5. Pinterest is finally working for them and sending traffic through. This is such a wonderful moment for any blogger.
  6. StumbleUpon is finally working and sending traffic coming through. This is worth celebrating as it can take months to crack!
  7. The blog post they assumed would be a ‘dud’ surprises them and turns out to be a social media winner!
  8. The headline for their latest blog post scores top marks on Co-Schedule’s Headline Analyser Tool.
  9. Writing and scheduling in all their blog posts for the week ahead and feeling great as they can sit back and enjoy life.
  10. Doubling their views and visitors in a month.
  11. Receiving the joyous news that someone has finally agreed to write them a guest post.
  12. Publishing a post with no typos.
  13. After a long and painful search finally finding an amazing image that brings their latest post to life.
  14. Finding a collection of successful hashtags to use on posts.
  15. Being nominated for a blogging award.
  16. Being asked to join a successful blogger’s Pinterest board.
  17. Winning the battle on their obsession with checking blog stats and being able celebrate the fact that today they only checked them five times as opposed to every half hour.
  18. Overhauling an old blog post, promoting the hell out of it it (via all forms of social media known to mankind) and watching it get a new lease of life.
  19. Getting a ‘good post!’ comment from one of their blogging heroes / heroines.
  20. After weeks of worry and anxiety the guest post that they wrote for a successful blogger has gone live. Their guest post did not make the successful blogger’s stats flatline or decimate their following. Phew!

Have a great day!

  1. “12.Publishing a post with no typos”
    Oh what a relief! I thought it was just me.

    Funny and as if all good comedy, very true.
    Very perspective take on Human Nature.

  2. Wait? You actually can publish a post without a single typo? Such a thing is possible? I was told that was only a fairy story. I feel so betrayed. So lied too…*wailing into the dark uncaring night regardless that is in fact early morning*

  3. You always write good posts Lucy and you’re my blogging hero and made my day the other week when you complimented my Titan story 🙂
    Do you know what I find strange thought – your follower count increases, but your views and likes don’t – do you find that?

  4. I don’t do any of these things! Except 12. I’m hoping to do an overhaul or two when I figure it out. I got that idea from you. Later, lovely! 🐠 Lemon Shark out.

  5. Ugh…StumbleUpon has me feeling Stumped… I haven’t a blooming clue. I’m having a bit more luck with Pinterest (after a lot of hard-pinning!)

    Your list made me smile 🙂

  6. That’s really true…. Tell me I just recently started blogging and I don’t even have 1 follower so I think that will actually make me happy…. my blog is highlifepost.wordpress.com
