As I said goodbye to 2014 and a big hello to 2015, I have said it before on here that I am not big on resolutions and even only picked one word to try to focus on (the key here is to try), but I have been meaning to make a few changes here on my blog (not too much, but still change can be good for growth purposes).
I PROMISE this space in 2015 will remain pretty much the way most have grown to love and expect it, but there is one change I have been toying with and decided this week to just rip off the old bandage (we all know how much my girls are obsessed with band-aids, but still).
So, you may have guessed it if you subscribe to my blog newsletter, but for those who don’t, I won’t leave you in suspense.
I have decided to try to send out daily e-mail updates when I post new blog posts instead of monthly newsletters in 2015.
Why you may ask make this change for 2015?
Well, first of all, I have a wonderful subscription list and feel like I have been neglecting them a bit.
I also have many followers on social networks, especially Facebook, but to be honest, I have seen the numbers that view my actual Facebook post updates. Out of 4,300 Facebook fans, I am lucky if 100 see these updates daily (that is being generous by the way).
Plus most recently, I received this lovely note (totally sarcastic if you didn’t get it by now) from Facebook late last week that I apparently, I liked too many other Fan pages and this is what happens when you do that:
You’ve been temporarily blocked from liking Pages on Facebook because of the amount and type of Pages you’ve liked recently. We’ve also cleared all of your likes from the past 30 days.
You’ll be able to like Pages again in 30 days.
Remember that you should only like Pages you’re genuinely interested in. Visit the Facebook Community Standards to learn more about our policies.

I am truly not trying to figure out Facebook algorithms anymore (thankfully gave up on that quite some time ago actually) and am hopeful that those who are subscribers to my blog will be happy to get a few e-mails weekly (I truly only post no more then 3 times a week) versus having to scour the internet for my post updates that unless I pay to post said posts get buried in most of my readers’ feeds in 2015 unlike this post below that somehow reached 200,000 views in less then 24 hours (seriously scratching my head on this, but again this is Facebook!).And this is the type of Facebook post that gets 200,000 views in less then 24 hours. If you can figure out why, please share with us!!
Don’t get me wrong, I am not closing my Facebook Fan page just yet (I PROMISE), as that wouldn’t be quite fair to those who did follow me there or those who thought they were (Facebook seems to auto-unlike when they feel like it), as well as all the wonderful groups I belong to and interact daily with, but my hope is those who see this and might not have known they were missing my posts, will also subscribe to my blog and follow me this way now, as well, because you value my opinion and my little blog, too not wanting to miss a moment of the action around here anymore in 2015 and beyond.
I try my best to share myself and my family (The Princesses tales never get old) here (as personal as I can get with you), as well as some other really great content from my awesome sponsors, too in 2015.
This is my PROMISE to you, my readers and subscribers. (Thank you again to Lisa from the Golden Spoons for this week’s challenge).
Lastly, I am closing in on 200 subscribers (so thankful for all who have stuck by me and do support my blog) and although I haven’t done much in the way with giveaways, as I am trying not to bog this space down with them constantly, I would be willing to hold a giveaway when I reach over 200 subscribers.
So, please take a moment below to subscribe to Confessions of A Mommyaholic in 2015 below now (if you haven’t already):
