    I think the most important blogging lesson I learnt is that you need to create content that is relatable to readers. When I look for posts to read on WordPress Reader, I immediately gravitate to posts which I feel I can read and relate to! If you create content that is relatable to the reader, they will naturally want to read more of your blogs 🙂

      That’s a very fair point. I think no one logs on thinking “let’s read about rocket science today” lol so yeah
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts!😊

      That’s awesome! Glad you found it useful. Both Jan and I are new to the game too, but the learning curve is always so steep in the first few months 😊
      Happy writing, and thanks for reading!

    Four years into running a mostly hobby blog, and I’m still learning. Great tips! I certainly have met many awesome bloggers on this journey and went on to meet up and hang out with several in real life. So grateful for the opportunities and friendships blogging have afforded me.

    Wow! Loved how informative this blog is. I think I should take the point into consideration quite seriously now. I needed this. Thanks Shelly for collaborating with such a wonderful blogger. ❤️

    I have learnt patience is important. The fruits of our labour will be shown in time to come. Don’t rush and think that you have X amount of time to grow your blog. Slow and steady wins the race!

    This is an interesting read. I’ve only been blogging for a few days haha. In that short time, I’ve learnt that many people stop by your blog and don’t leave a trace (like, comment or follow) but they show up in your stats. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Some people may find your blog posts helpful and others may really love your blog. They just haven’t said anything. Sort of like a silent follower or reader.

    • Shelly DS says

      Congratulations on taking the plunge! You’re absolutely right, there are a lot of silent readers, but don’t let that frustrate you. Keep doing your thing and eventually it won’t really matter at all! I’m glad you weren’t a silent reader cause now I can check out your blog too 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by <3

    I just started a blogging calendar last week! It’s helped organize my blog posts and all of my blog social media accounts into certain days of the week. Keeps me on track for sure 🙂

    Great tips, I need to do a blogging calendar, I just have blog lists, so it is still visual. The schedule feature is working good for me now, this will help. Life can get a bit busy sometimes

I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
