How many newbie bloggers start out with the grandiose idea that their blog is going to rock the world? That EVERYONE will want to read their words of wisdom? Yes, I am one of those delusional schmucks. I mean, seriously, who wouldn’t be waiting by their <insert device of choice here> to read my next brilliantly crafted chocolate review?
My blog is a hobby and I have enjoyed the process of creating and maintaining it. But, my ego sure has taken a beating. I honestly did not realize how much work was involved in getting visitors to my blog. And, keeping people coming back? Well, I am still struggling with figuring that out also. I blog, I tweet, I stumble, I pin…and then start it all over again. Catchy, huh?
I created my blog in May, so it is still relatively new. Maybe it just takes time to build a following. If you are a successful blogger, and by some miracle, are actually reading this article, please help a new blogger out by sharing some tips for increasing blog traffic.
In the meantime, I will continue to share my love of chocolate with anyone who cares to read about it. Keep Calm and Carry On....
