Confessions Of This Bottari Blogger

I think it is time to swallow my pride and admit that I'm feeling a little bit insecure about the ol' blog these days. I measure my blog's success by the amount of comments I get on a post and by how many followers google reader tells me I have (whether or not this is a good way to measure blog success is up for debate). My goodness I wish I were self-confident enough not to give one wit about how many people read my blog. But the truth is I feel vulnerable sometimes. Please forgive me for this. I really want my writing to be engaging and meaningful for those who follow Bottari. I want to create a community. I think the best way to do this is to find out from you, astute reader, what it is that moves you. What do you like already about Bottari? What would you like to read more of? What needs a little bit of work or should be scrapped altogether? 

I hope this isn't too bold or self-absorbed (well as un-self-absorbed as you can get in blog culture), but I figure the only way for me to feel better about this blog is to communicate with those who are invested in it: my readers. I would really appreciate your honest--and I do mean honest--feedback.

For those of you who regularly comment on my blog or connect with me personally about Bottari, thank you. I can't begin to tell you how much that means to me. It always, always makes my day lighter.
