Life With Lorelai is one-month old today!

It’s been quite a month of trying to learn the ins-and-outs of blogging (and I am in no way an expert yet), but I am pleased with the progress my little blog has made. I am most happy with the people I have met through Life With Lorelai; it has been nice getting to know you all, and I look forward to an ongoing relationship.

I have learned how important social media is to a blog. I’ve become fairly adept with the WordPress editor, stuck my toes into the icy waters of HTML coding, conquered hyperlinks, and added media. There is still so much to learn, and so many ideas bursting to be tried.

I would like to just step back and take a look at how far Life With Lorelai has come this month. As of right now, we have had:

  • 767 Views with 250 Unique Visitors
  • Visitors from 12 different countries: United States, Canada, India, Australia, Thailand, South Africa, Germany, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Lithuania, Indonesia, and Norway
  • 25 Posts
  • The Top Post is: Yo-Ho, Yo-Ho, A Treasure Find Fer Me
  • 3 Pages
  • The Top Page is: About Lorelai
  • 1 Recipe
  • Favorite Recipe is: No Pit’s Here… Peach Cobbler!
  • 59 Blog Shares
  • 93 Followers: 44-Blog, 6-Twitter, 23-Facebook, 13-Bloglovin’, 7-Pinterest

Not too shabby! Hopefully, things around Life With Lorelai will continue to grow and bloom, and I look forward to meeting new people and making new friends. Thank you for following my journey.

Today will definitely be a note in our Happiness Jar!

I would love to hear from you…leave me a COMMENT. hmmm

    I am so impressed you have conquered WordPress. I continue to struggle each day. What did you do to get up to speed so quickly?

    • Social Media is key. I joined a couple of blogging groups on facebook, signed up for Twitter, PInterest, and Bloglovin’. I signed on to blogging challenges with NaBloPoMo, SITSgirls, and the Ultimate Blog Challenge (you can find their links in my sidebar).

      All of these factors have brought in readers, which have led to followers! Thanks everyone. πŸ™‚

  3. Way too go on your first month of blogging!!! Hope the next month is even better!

  4. Congratulations!! It only gets better from here. That’s some amazing stats for a month can you imagine what it will be in 6? Now where’s the drink? πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Amanda and Madison! I thought the stats were pretty thrilling for one month, and I’m excited to see what will happen in six months. I think after the crazy, busy, stressful day I’ve had, celebrating my bloggy 1-mo. b-day with a Cadillac Margarita sounds GREAT! πŸ˜€

  5. Congratulations! I remember when I first started blogging and people were subscribing. It is a wonderful feeling and I hope you are soaking in every moment of it. Love the rose photo btw.

    • Soak, soak, soak! You’re right it is an awesome feeling to actually see results from your blog. The rose is a Neptune rose bush that I bought for Luke for our first Christmas…it smells AMAZING!

    Keep blogging Lorelai. You’re doing great. I’ve found that once you learn the tricks of blogging, it becomes addictive. I love the pix of the rose, you can almost smell the perfume.

    I know what you mean. When I first began blogging, all I ever got was spam. Since I started putting my blog all over FB, LinkedIn, google+, and twitter, I’m getting lots of comments, and drawing in great clients!

  17. Jeffy says:

    I love your commitment. I sometimes find it hard to stick to the well- meaning commitments I make. I’m inspired πŸ™‚

  18. Jeff Mere says:
