Lessons Learned from Blogging Daily
Hot off the press. As many of you know that I signed up for the 30 day blog challenge on June 1st and been blogging for the past 5 days. My purpose for participating at this event was to enhance my writing skills and condition myself to blog on a consistant daily basis. Also to network and connect with other bloggers and form a tribe/community. Here are the 3 lessons that I learned so far.
1) Blogging takes time and the more you blog you begin to find your voice- I am having so much fun and trying to write from different perspective and viewpoints.
2) It takes time for traffic to come to your blog/site. Just because I think that I wrote a good article does not necessarily mean 500 people will come to my site to read the blog. Learning about using keyword search and putting those words in your article will help drive more traffic.
3) Reading and commenting on other people’s blog is another way to get more traffic to your site as well as connecting with other bloggers and cultivating realtionships. There are so many amazing bloggers filled with a slew of knowledge.
Want to share this enlightening story with you. More like going above and beyond the call of duty.
While visiting several blogs two days ago, I found Terrie Wurzbacher and her blog post was on the 1st Featured Group of Bloggers. At the time there were over 200+ bloggers involved in the challenge, I found her blog to be a wealth of information. Her blog is a synopsis of 10 bloggers article. She went out of her way to copy and paste segments of the 10 articles and information to the bloggers sites. Imagine all the time and effort that it took for Terrie to review each blog. This provides us with a preview of some of 200+ bloggers. I wrote her a comment and the next day. Terrie was so sweet to post my blog post with 15 other bloggers- 2nd Featured Group of Bloggers. Today she posted the 3rd Featured Group of Bloggers and she features 25 more bloggers.
