A Wall

Not to be confused with A.W.O.L., which I have also been from this blog. Honestly, I have hit a bit of a wall.

My followers have been holding steady for the last couple months, which means it hasn't gone down, but it hasn't gone up either. I am aware that my lack of posting might have something to do with it. But sometimes I feel like I have no idea what to write about, and if I do, people don't seem to really notice. It is a vicious circle.

Don't get me wrong, the 194 followers that I do have are ABSOLUTELY the best people in the whole wide world. I would like to think that I have built some great friendships with some of you, and this whole blog thing has been a surprisingly rewarding experience. But, I need to find a way to push forward, to keep my content fresh, and to reinvent myself always.
So that is what I am doing. I am taking a tick to think about what I love about this blog, and what I don't. What can I add that would be cool, awesome, and exciting? I am sure this is a problem that a lot of you guys have at times.

So of course, I would love to hear from my AMAZING followers (did I tell you guys how awesome you were???). What are your thoughts? Your ideas? What do you like to read? What do you look for in a blog???? Please leave a comment, email me, heck send a smoke signal! I want to hear from you.

I also want to make a conscious effort to collaborate with my fellow bloggers a little more. Who is open to collaboration? A cool new feature? Dual giveaways? I am open!!!

I look forward to hearing from all of you, whether it is a quick snippet or a twenty page essay!

I hit this wall often. And after realizing I've hit the wall is usually when I write my favorite posts. (That and when I'm up late after too many beers and have a pen and paper handy.)

Just write what you want to write. I write about the Bachelor (still) only because my followers ask for it. But then they don't even comment on the posts and I get mad (and dramatic).

I always feel better about my blog when I write what I want to write. Followers or not.

Buuuut yes. We all want more comments, more followers, more action. And I would definitely be into collaborating somehow. I've been trying to think of ways to collaborate with other bloggers myself.

For the bloggers that are in a relationship, I like to read about their love story :), how they met and so forth. I like to see a lot of pictures, but you already have that covered with your Instagram obsession, which by the way I'm pretty obsessed with it as well.

It's easy to feel that way--I know I do sometimes. Like my blog is stagnant or something. One thing you could do is link up with the series Tara @ Fabulous but Evil ( is hosting today called True Life: I'm a ________ Blogger to introduce you to more bloggers! I linked up today and have already found some great new blogs.

I think you're on the right track, and I still think you have the best layout of anyone around! :)

I like reading about random life... Seeing the fun and happy things you do. I'd love to see more fashion from you because I really like your style. What about creating a fun weekly link-up?

I'd love to do a collaboration or blog swap with you, especially since you are one of the few blogs I have been able to find by a CA girl! I've been feeling a little stagnant lately too, and I feel a little nauseated having so much "me" on my blog. I feel like I need to switch it up for people! I love love your style, so maybe we could do a swap and post on our style, or maybe places we love or what we love about living in CA? If you are down let me know!
