A Glorious Journey of BloggingLove from 0 to 500 Blog Posts
July 12th, 2017 | by Ravi Chahar || 21 Comments |
In the past few years, I have always tried to provide the best and qualitative tutorials to BloggingLove’s readers. The journey of BloggingLove has been full of ups and downs.
It’s always good to see how people are appreciating the blog posts, WordPress tutorials, and the LinkedIn marketing tips.
I am glad to announce that after a long time, I am going to publish the 500th post on BloggingLove. In this post, I am going to let you know how I managed to make this happen and why are people looking for BloggingLove.
Let Me Start From the Day I Published My First Post
In 2014 I bought this domain name which was totally a coincidence because I was visiting my friend and he asked me to start something.
We’re pursuing our graduation that time and you know that we always need to start something to build a better career.
We’re looking for BloggingLuv as the domain name but luckily found BloggingLove as it shows my love for blogging. When I started writing, I used to publish one post each day which was perfect.
Many people came to know about my WordPress skills but due to my exams, I had to take a break from blogging.
What were the things I was thinking about
I never thought to make money from Google AdSense or any other advertisement network. I learned from my friends’ experience.
He used to have a few ad networks but the website speed was low. I examined the website and what could be done.
Though I was not good at such things still, you know that curiosity is the most amazing thing which automatically makes you learn.
I was thinking about a few other things.
- Experiencing technical things
- Explore WordPress
- Learn about the beautiful designs
- Test different plugins
I have always loved how a few lines of the code can turn a simple box into something mesmerizing.
In 2014, I kept my consistency but in 2015, everything was messed up because of the studies and nothing was going well.
I used to publish once a month because there wasn’t enough time due to the classes and other things.
But I never stopped writing. In 2016, after my graduation, I have been publishing at least 5 times a week since then. People even ask me as if how do I manage to publish regularly and do the web design work.
I just say one thing to them.Success kisses those who value consistency Click To Tweet
You can have what you want if you keep chasing your goals. I was never a guy who could work consistently. I work around 12 to 15 hours a day.
I know that’s more than a 9 to 5 job but there are many things which are exceptional.
- Passion is everything
- I love to write, teach others, help others, and see them grow
- WordPress is something I can explore for days, months, and even for many years
- I always loved making things beautiful and that’s why I design websites
Till the middle of 2016, I had only 86 posts and now I am walking you through the journey of BloggingLove to its 500th post.
What’s the Ideal Post Schedule
It’s been always a debating topic for many years and no one has an answer to this question. But I am going to share my personal experience and what I applied on BloggingLove.
From 86 to 500 posts in less than one year. Doesn’t that sound amazing? Well, it is for me.
I even published twice a day for many months regularly. There was no one who could help me. One man army can kill the demotivation and all the negativity.
Let me answer your question.
If you’re a full-time blogger and have enough time to promote your posts on social media platforms then you should definitely publish every day.
You can skip weekends otherwise, every single day a post should be published.
It doesn’t matter what people say. You have to think beyond anyone else. Look at WPBeginner and many other famous websites which are on the top because they update their blog regularly.
Whereas if you don’t have enough time for promotion then either you hire a social media manager or publish at least 4 times a week.
You can’t let people forget about you, your blog’s name. Daily updates mean more people will notice you every day and no one can neglect the fact that you’re showing something others don’t.
What’s the Biggest Satisfaction During the Journey of BloggingLove
People always ask during my interviews as if what’s the biggest satisfaction you get from BlggingLove.
Well, it’s simple. You know when someone thanks me for helping him/her, it’s one of the best feelings. I provide tutorials for the people who don’t even have any idea about WordPress technical side.
I can understand how hard it is when people don’t get the solution to their problems.
I was a guy who couldn’t even fix a simple WordPress error but now I am providing an informative guide about common WordPress errors and their solutions.
If you also want to follow the journey of BloggingLove then try hard, write regularly and provide the fresh content to your readers.
Do Social Media Platforms Help In Growing A Blog
No doubt that 80% of the people know an answer to this question. People have different choices and that’s why some bloggers are focusing on Twitter whereas others try Facebook.
Apart from all, I use LinkedIn as my main social media platform. It’s more professional than any other network.
You can read my journey to 15000 LinkedIn followers.
While using this platform, you should always remember that it’s not Facebook where you publish your selfies. Be professional, achieve your goals.
Use the power of LinkedIn Pulse platform. You can read my guest post on Lisa’s blog about LinkedIn marketing.
Learn about Facebook marketing and leverage your current position with the Twitter branding. The more you spread your words, the more are the chances of getting exposure.
I always recommend focusing on two platforms. Don’t try to be an everywhere person. People make mistake by chasing every social media platform.
I focus on Twitter and LinkedIn and that’s why I have thousands of followers on both. If you decide you use LinkedIn, you should know how to get more LinkedIn endorsements.
What’s Covered in These 500 Posts
That’s a tough question to answer because there are millions of articles which can be written but here I have tried to cover almost every possible tutorial for a WordPress user.
During this journey of BloggingLove, I have crafted a list of WordPress tutorials which should be published so that no user gets disappointed.
