My goal was to get 300 followers by the end of the year. I got 300 a couple of months ago, much to my surprise and delight! I had no idea how to get followers when I started this blog this past summer. I had had another blog that I posted on Facebook. It got a few likes on Facebook but I felt very isolated.
Thanks to WordPress U I have met so many new people, who I now consider friends. I would recommend WordPress U to anyone and not to solicit likes. WordPress U is a series of free course that inspires, teaches, challenges and makes you be a better blogger and learn all about WordPress. I’m waiting to take my 4th course in December.
