What I Haven’t Learned From Blogging

I have been writing in this blog for a little over a year now, and I can honestly say I love doing it. I enjoy being able to communicate my ideas through a medium I’m at least moderately competent with.

It was a gamble for me to start this blog, but in the long run I am glad I did.

However, as I have discovered through reading other blogs and observing the feedback I have received for this blog, I have learned that Jon Snow and I have one thing in common: We both know nothing.

I have spent hours crafting posts that would often get 2 or 3 views at best, while others I would crank out in the span of 30 minutes and they would get 7 to 10 likes.

I am grateful for every like and follow that I have received, but I’m nowhere near close to figuring out what people want.

I have mainly been concerned about what interests me (books, writing, inspiration, etc) because I know writing about what I love is the best way for me to produce something worth reading.

I’m not the type of person who could write about fashion, or cooking, or politics.

I have made progress, but it has been very slow.

Like riding-a-little-red-wagon- with-three-wheels-through-the-Everglades slow.

Who knows. Maybe I just need to shut up and keep climbing.

I’m still having fun and still learning. That’s the important thing!

Right?

  1. Great post very relatable. When I first started my blog I had the same trouble on how to get more traffic to my site. I was discouraged but I continued to write & now a few more people read my blog!

    1. Thank you! Yeah. I’m definitely going to keep writing. I enjoy it too much to quit. But sometimes it can be discouraging to hear how some get 100s of followers in a matter of months when you’re on a much slower track.

  2. Your blog reads well and looks fine. Try talking to more like minded bloggers, follow a few tags that relate to you. Especially for you the Writing tag (one of the most popular on wordpress). Like minded people tend to read like minded blogs.

    I came here of the blogging tag by the way 🙂
