What I’ve Learned: 1 month after starting my blog (Advice Welcome)

It’s been about a month since starting my blog. It’s been a bit of a learning curve since the whole process seemed intimidating. So far, I’ve learned that blogging can become a passion when you focus on topics and content you care about and your initial reasons for starting. In a previous post I talked about  some goals for my blog and my aspirations for it going forward. You can read more about it  by clicking the link/ image below.

MY GOALS FOR MY BLOG

The Millennial Exclusive: Why I blog and what I want for my blog in the future

On the technical side, I’ve learned quite a few things about optimization (SEO) and marketing, trackbacks/pingbacks, increasing traffic to my site, creating engaging content that will resonate with an audience and viewing blogging as more than just a hobby. I’ll most likely do a blog post in the future on these individual elements when I feel more well versed in them.

However, key takeaways are that in blogging, consistency and time management is key. It’s important to have quality and a genuine voice.  I try to be unique on my site and in my blog posts by mixing educational content with entertainment. It’s also important to take the time to learn the technical aspects of blogging; to give yourself an edge in the void that is the internet. Also engage in others, read their blogs, comment on topics that resonate and interest you and get yourself and your blog out there in front of others.

If anyone has anymore advice on improving my site, please feel free to let me know in the comments. You can also provide feedback from the poll below:
