you is.

Happy Monday! Emily suggested this quote from The Help and I knew I had to bring it to life. I loved the movie inspired by Kathryn Stockett's novel and my favorite scene featured these nine caring words:

I realized this quote could be related to blogging, as almost everything can ;) It may not be the exact interpretation that Kathryn intended, but I'm running with it...

KIND: Be supportive not combative to your fellow bloggers. If you see something which may be wrong in their post, don't call them out in a comment. Everyone makes mistakes. If you feel inclined to share the error, send a friendly email and let them know you have their best interests at heart.

SMART: Do some research to see what content resonates best with your readers. Engagement isn't limited to comments or pageviews. Pay attention to what is being pinned from your blog and you can create content which will keep your readers coming back for more. {If you don't know how to find this, all you need to do is visit:} 

IMPORTANT: Even though it is easy to do, try not to get bogged down in the numbers. Everyone in the blog world brings something unique. A crazy amount of pageviews doesn't always translate to blogging success. You are important and your words are helping someone, whether they tell you or not.

What else might you tell a new blogger to make them feel at home in the blogosphere?

  1. What a great message to start off the week! Whether in blogging, work or just life in general I always try to remind myself of this and same days are better than others!


  2. Thank you for sharing this sweet quote :) I actually hadn't related it to blogging before, but I'm so glad you did. Your timing is particularly nice as well... I've needed these reminders lately as I struggle [wrongly] with envy in the blog world!

  3. Find what makes you happy. It has taken me five years of blogging and just in the last week I finally got inspiration for how I want to take my blog. I have been all over the map and that is okay. The entire adventure has been fun and that is what I love about blogging.

    Great inspirational post.

  4. Love the quote, book and movie! Thank you!

  5. You always say the right thing at the right time!! Thanks for the encouragement and great quote!

  6. Thank you for this! My twin sister & I are just starting out on Blogger (we had Wordpress before) & it's definitely easy to get frustrated by the numbers. We only have 11 followers & it's hard to stay motivated to keep posting, but I know if we do -- the hard work will pay off!

    xo, B

  7. Such a great reminder! I love how you applied it all to blogging. :)

  8. I absolutely love this post. Every word has truth to it. Thank you for posting!
