Stage of Blog before HIMMB: Wendy had also not started her blog yet. But she was super pumped to get started. Update: I have not been posting enough.  The month of September I wrote 3 blog posts, and it should have been much more.  I’ve seen a steady rise in traffic since I started the blog in July, and each month has shown an increase in unique visitors.  Those numbers could and should be much higher, and a new month brings a new resolve to “just write”.  I need to get serious with time managment, and start filling in my calender with blog post dates (in addition to what bill is due) – and just write. I have not been … Read more
