    Really enjoyed reading this! I started my blog not even a month ago, and am going to implement the two day rule. I’ve already noticed that I gain and especially lose momentum semi-sporadically.

      Awesome! I think one of the most challenging aspect of blogging is leading yourself.

    Such a great list! I’ve been blogging for a year now and I’m just starting to focus on being a “better blogger”. This is great information! Thank you for sharing!

    Love this! “I changed my tag line twelve times.” That rings a few bells. 🙂

    I have either made all of these mistakes, or am still currently making them. Except for #6, since I am not a parent yet. 😉 Thank you for this post! It has made me realize that I am still doing some of these things.

    Saw this post on Facebook and just had to comment here too! I’ve been blogging for a little over 3 years and I love it. When I first started blogging my son was already 4 (going on 40) so I didn’t really have an issue with sleeping. Now that I have my daughter it’s been really hard. I don’t get sleep training lol my daughter cries and I just have to pick her up. She knows this and abuses it…She’s 4 months old lol Wish you lots of success in your blogging journey!
