How to increase your blog traffic
If you own a blog, and you like to fill it with glorious content, then chances are you want people to read what you have written. Sure, you might have created your blog as a bit of fun, or as a welcome distraction from the world, but it is still nice to know that someone is reading your work.
But attracting traffic isn’t easy, is it? And it doesn’t matter how much time and effort you spend on your posts, sometimes it seems as if no one is paying attention.
Well don’t be disheartened – I can help.
When I started blogging, my traffic was only so-so (and that’s me being generous). However, I’m now 2-3 years in, I have passed the one million views mark, and the traffic on my blog continues to increase – and yours can too!
In this post I am going to provide a few…

Tips for writing a blog
Blogging is an art. Many people have the misconception that blogging is easy. It takes a lot of time and effort in writing a blog. There are millions of blogs, but only a few blogs get recognition and become popular. There are a few things you should keep in mind when you write a blog.
1. Be original
Always be original. You should have your own identity. Don’t try to copy or imitate others. It doesn’t mean that you can’t write about things about which other people have already written. There are many common things about which we all write, but you should write in your own way.
2. Content is important
No matter what you do, the quality of your content matters a lot. Don’t write just to write. When you do so, it results in substandard content. Whatever you write, write quality content.
3. Keep it…

How To Find Your Blog’s Target Audience
Whether you are blogging as a hobby or are serious about your blog, every blogger would love to gain followers and people read their blog posts. One of the most common mistakes some bloggers do is the fact they change their niche if they don’t see their blogs growing. Unless you are truly interested in that niche in question, I personally think it’s a big mistake. You might think that changing your niche will boost your traffic and followers but the truth is, unless you create good quality content and implement strategies – you won’t be able to grow your blog organically nor consistently.
After a point, you will not be able to write blog posts and even if you do, you won’t be passionate about your blog anymore. I truly believe there is an audience for every niche. Changing your niche or doing what others are…

The Best Social Media Platforms To Use Based On Your Niche.
As a blogger, you have the option to use social media platforms to promote your blog posts and content. I personally don’t think it’s a must depending on your personal preference. Although I would recommend to take advantage of social media, if you don’t find it good for your mental health or simply is not for you – you don’t have to use them. From my personal experience, my main source of traffic isn’t from social media and I didn’t grow my blog using any social media platforms either.
I’m saying this to show you that social media isn’t a must but they can be a powerful source of traffic if you use them effectively. I know many bloggers who generate thousands and thousands of views on their blogs purely from social media. If I’m being completely honest, I only started to use social media regularly since last year…

What I Use For Blogging!
Hey! Today, I am going to share with you the things I use for blogging! Some you may already use, while others may spark ideas. And if you use something that isn’t listed here, tell me about it in the comments!
I feel like I don’t have to explain……
Ok, so I use this when it is not my computer time but I have a post in mind. I pull out my notebook and write a rough draft of the post! The only bad part is that it hurts my neck leaning down to look at the notebook while typing! XD
Canva is AMAZING!!!! It is really easy to use plus it’s free!! The really annoying part is that they have hundreds of templates to choose from (and that’s not even the paid plan!). It takes forever to find exactly what you need. They do have a search bar that…

Hi! Today, I’ll be sharing some tips I’ve learned over the past 200 blog posts. (Yes, 200. Crazy.) Any blogger knows that the more time and experience you have, the better you’ll get! And I’ve grown tremendously since I first started this over two years ago. Here are the things I’ve learned since Blogging 101:
- FIND YOUR FLOW
This is probably one of the hardest things when it comes to blogging. I’ve been blogging for over two years and have yet to get a tight grasp on my “flow.” But, make this a journey. Your blog will change as you change, and also as your audience and the world around you changes. Figure out which writing style you like best, what topics you want to be associated with, and what your overall vibe is. Experiment with different ways of doing things, and see how you like it!
