My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Katie Wright!!!
Katie Wright (#5600) has received a certificate of achievement in Each Other for earning an Intermediate & Expert Level Blogging Merit Badge!
“I started my blog on 11/23/2013, but went slowly at learning things from a book called Blogging For Dummies. I posted on Country Katie and Daisy Mae at that date and have continued to do so with topics about glamping, gardening, knitting, and more. I have added my blog to GirlGab.com some time ago.
I have learned a little at a time, and just recently have started adding color and also pictures. I have learned to change profile photos and some other things. This seems to be something that I will enjoy for a long time, including reading others’ blogs. I look at knitting, quilting, gardening, and travel blogs, also.
I learned how to add my profile picture and then how to change pictures. Now I also am able to add pictures at the beginning or end of the blog. I also have published more than 10 blogs, as I have been doing this since the end of 2013, but this is the first time I have applied for the badge, as it just takes a while to get things going with a blog, at least for me. I have visited others’ blogs and they have done the same with mine. I do not have a big following, but I believe that in time, and if I learn to add some more decor and “class” to my simple blog, it will be looked at more.
I believe my blogging is doing fine. I know I could be on more often and respond to others’ blogs, maybe ask questions at the end of my posts so people may respond, and maybe list more topics. I enjoy telling things about gardening, knitting, glamping, and my sweet Daisy Mae Foxhound. As your blogging section states, it takes time to build a following. Actually, I am not so concerned about a large following, as I am enjoying it for the writing experience.”
So happy to meet you Katie! Congratulations on learning how to blog as I know it is more complicated than it looks. I just checked on GirlGab and found your site and will make sure that I follow along with your journeys as a retired Farmgirl. Love your sweet pup Daisy Mae!
