Can you believe that it’s been almost two years since I’ve started this blog?! I sure as hell can’t. It’s the first time that I carry out a project like that without quitting after a few months (
weeks, AHEM). Sure, I’ve had my ups and downs. I’ve taken countless breaks, I’ve thought about quitting more than I care to admit, I’ve wanted to change everything and start all over… but I’ve also moved to self-hosted, 60x my pageviews, and met incredible people through this little hobby of mine.
To celebrate my upcoming blog’s second anniversary, I thought I would share with you 6 lessons I’ve learned in the past two years as a blogger. View Post
It’s every blogger’s dream to get more pageviews. Whether we care about numbers or not, in the end, we all want to reach and help more people.
Back in March, I had around 300 pageviews. That was an all-time record for me back then. Now, I get that amount in a day (and some days a lot more than that!). I went from having 300 pageviews a month to a monthly average of now 18,000 pageviews. In the span of 9 months, I 60x my pageviews. But that didn’t happen overnight. That took a lot of efforts, but I’m happy to say that it paid off. So how did I grow my blog’s traffic? View Post
Every blogger out there knows just how big of a role social media plays in bringing traffic to your website and generating engagement. It’s written in the “how to be a blogger” book. Every blogger and their mother are on several platforms, promoting their posts and their website.
But as much as I love this tool as a way to connect with others and promote my content, I’ve recently found myself overly obsessed with social media. I invested in some online courses about growing your following across different platforms, I checked my channels every hour or so in the hope of creating engagement, I kept thinking of what to post next… Social media has taken over my life. It had gotten to the point that it takes me away from spending time on other things such as studying or writing new content for my blog. I became so obsessed with social media that I forgot why I was even blogging. I lost my purpose and became solely focused on growth. I mean, growth is great. But how can you even grow when you’re not being true to yourself? View Post
Being a twentysomething is hard. I don’t know about you, but I find adulting to be really hard. I mean, I’m suddenly supposed to know how to pay taxes and get a real job? Whaaat?
