Well here I am 17 days later and I've gained 25 likes on my Facebook page! I am extremely excited about this! I have 25 new fans! It is a blessing and a wonderful feeling, one that I want to share with my readers. I do have a brief post of How I Got 4 Likes on Facebook in 4 Days for those who are already really familiar with Facebook's Features.
For those who are still a work in progress like I am, here are the exact steps I took to increase my Facebook Page Likes:
- My First Step was to see exactly where I stood with the big boys (competition) or rather my favorite pages. As it turned out I was low man on totem poll with only 118 Likes. Really it could be worse.

This is a far sad cry from my favorite competitor, Chalene Johnson. Look at those page likes! Now this is a goal to really aim for! Heck, I'd even be happy aiming for Pat Flynn's Likes.
I also dove a little deeper and took a look at each of my Competitor's number of posts and their engagement activity. There's more to those little bites of info than just on the insights page. The information is the result of what they posted and whether it caught their reader's attention. So it really is all about the posts once you have built your readership.
In the past blogging has been very hard for me due to my depression and ADHD. My blog posts were far and few to the point at times I was blogging maybe once every two months. But my blog has always been my passion, and although I have learned that a lot of my blog is crap (I think we have all noticed this.), it has also made me realize there's still potential in these words and new changes can lead to greater things, don't you think?
