When I wrote my first post back in November 2012 , I never knew I was leading it to another level . Another chapter of my life , with a LOT of new things to add . It was a simple , personal blog until I started blogging seriously .
Actually , I am cheating because real blogoversary was on 5 November . But busy scheduling hadn't left me so I didn't celebrate it . Late but right .
Since it's been an exciting ride , I am SO excited to share my experiences with you all today.The first time I started blogging , I knew NOTHING . I learned it step by step . The writing style , monetizing , connecting & interactions and everything else . It has taken me a whole year to grow my blog but it worth it .
Writing a post
Whenever you start writing a post , concentrate on it . Don't think of other's posts or any external pressure . Everybody has an unique style so be sure you keep your style . Add relevant pictures and make it look attractive . You can even take pictures from others but always keep the original link with it .You surely don't wanna be called a picture stealer , do you?
Monetizing a blog is totally different for everyone else . It also depends on your blog type . If there's a mommy blog out there that gets loads of product to PR , while you have a bigger general blog that doesn't get much. Don't be sad over it , it's all about the relevancy of product .
Same goes for your blog sponsorship , keep in mind that people choose to sponsor that blog which goes similar with theirs . So once you have found bloggers same as you , your blog will start having sponsors.
Your community? What does it mean?
It means the group of people who reads & comments on your blog . They might have similar blogs as yours so you get along very well with them . Talk to them on social media like Twitter or Facebook. Make your own G+ circle to have hangouts . Build & keep your community .
Numbers are cray cray
Don't get lost in numbers . The big followers meter doesn't matter if they're NOT interested in your blog . It will only hurt you . So keep your blogging creative and try not to go after numbers . Keep writing in your ways and it will be awesome by the end.
Some fun :
If you're familiar with blog stats , you might know the search terms that lead to our blogs from google . The most crazy terms I have ever got is :
"How to find a British billionaire husband" : I don't know how to find one . If you know , be sure to fill me with tips.
Noor died in... : WHAT? *ZIPP
Because I blog to make a camera : How to make a camera? HOW? I don't know . Perhaps that surfer knew.
A pair would : I don't know what it is suppose to be . A pair would....read my blog? Or make a camera, gah.
I am so excited today . I can't believe it's been a whole year since I am in blogosphere , can't thank enough for EACH and EVERYONE who kept me motivated with their sweet words and love . Thank you all . I have arranged some fun for ya'll , a blog survey & a giveaway (hint : $$)
