TODAY’S QUOTE :
“The first thing you need to decide when you build your blog is what you want to accomplish with it, and what it can do if successful.”
MY VIEWS :
When I first “built my blog” I had no clear idea of what it was going to be about. All I knew was that I wanted to write. I toyed with the idea of writing about books and wrote several reviews but hardly anyone read them. Then I wrote some posts about food, but without recipes — those did slightly better, as in they got more comments and views. Next I did a few posts on self – care / “personal development”. My blog in its first year was without a niche so I called it a “lifestyle blog”.
What made my blog really take off was when I took the advice of blogger Sadje and started participating in writing prompts. I gained more views comments and followers. I plucked up the courage to create a prompt of my own. Currently, I host two prompts every week, Blogging Insights on Monday and 5 Things on Tuesday.
At present, more than1500 people follow my blog and I have published more than 1400 posts. I don’t know if this allows my blog to be called “successful”. I still don’t know what I want to “accomplish” with my blog since it continues “niche- less”.
