I found the blog MotivatingGiraffe.com by Penny Redshaw a few months ago and decided to buy her book.
The book is full of adorable artwork and motivational thoughts. It would make a great gift item and is well worth reading.
I have a question for my blogger friends. Have you ever gotten rude comments on one of your blog posts? If so, did you respond or just ignore it?
I’ve had a few on my blog. For example, I have been called an idiot and I was told my blog is full of useless drivel.
I just ignore such comments. If the person had some constructive criticism, then I would pay attention. However, saying mean things to people while hiding behind a computer screen is something a coward would do and it has no effect on me.

Here are a few important points to keep in mind when blogging:
How do you determine if your blog is successful? Is there a certain number of followers you are trying to achieve? Do you base it on the number of people that visit your blog each day? Do you consider your blog successful if you post on a consistent basis.
I have pondered these questions and I don’t have a clear answer. It is hard to control how many followers or visitors you have, so using stats to determine your blog success can be a bit difficult. However, consistency is easier to determine and it may be the best way to decide if you are reaching your blogging goals.
