Happy one month anniversary??
When I first started this blog, I scoured the internet for any blog post I could find about how to increase my traffic. This was a recurring thing, I’d finish writing a blog post and then I’d spend the rest of my evening on pinterest having all these posts thrown at me about how someone reached 40k views in their first month etc etc. Of course, that’s something I wanted but I began to realise no amount of “tips and tricks” is gonna increase my traffic. Especially not at that rate! Of course some things work for some people and there are certain things us bloggers need to do in order to grow our following, like being active on social media. But obsessively reading these posts won’t help my blog!
So I’m avoiding such posts for now, I understand that they are supposed to be helpful and I’m not denying that they are. Just not for me, they do more harm than good because I end up spending more time reading those posts rather than writing my own.
On another note, if any of you are following me on twitter (@wolfishdelight if you’re not!) you will have heard that I’m interested in starting my own podcast. It will be hosted on this blog (hopefully) so you won’t have to go far if you would like to listen to them, once I’ve gotten round to organising it. However, I have a bad habit of wanting to do everything now. If it’s even remotely possible then I want to do it asap, because I’m excited! I’m excited at the prospect of starting a new project and to work on my creativity further. It was the same with self-hosting my blog, the second I knew I had enough money I began the process of sorting it and I managed to do it all within an hour or so!
But I know I need to slow down a bit, because as much as I want to throw myself into making this a podcast a reality, I don’t quite have the time or the energy at the moment with school and all. Plus I still need to continue working on my blog and trying to build it up, it is only barely a month old! So the podcast idea is going take a backseat, for now.
And with blogging, comes photography. Which is also a skill I’m trying to develop, I’ve managed the first step of figuring out how some of the settings work and I think I’ve just about managed to grasp what ISO means! So my current focus is going to be building my blog up further and improving my sorely lacking photography skills. And of course, staying on top of my school work and getting good grades.
Until next time 🙂
