My Personal Experience with Blogging

I started my blogging journey back in 2010 when I was still in school!  At that time, Blogger was the most popular platform and every newbie started with it. So, I also started my journey with Blogger. 

The funny part was that I used to post stuff on this blog that I later found out was illegal! Thank God, it did not get much recognition, or I would’ve been in big trouble!

But anyway, one advantage of that blog was that it taught me a lot about blogging – how blogs work, how to post articles, how to configure blog settings, and more. 

But because I did not receive any profitable results back then, I quit blogging for a while and focused on learning programming languages and working on other technical skills.

In 2015, I again started blogging. This time, I had a clear idea of how blogs work. So, I started with WordPress CMS and learnt how to work with it. 

And since then, I have created lots of blogs and even purchased and sold some of them! At the moment, I am running many successful blogs online.  

Most Common Mistakes While Blogging

In my entire decade of blogging experience, I have seen a majority of beginner bloggers and even experienced professionals make two common mistakes. 

1. Investing Excessive Time on Design

Bloggers tend to invest an enormous amount of time on perfecting the design of their blog. They want their website to look modern and appealing to their viewers. Thus, they keep on implementing bulky themes and plugins to enhance the overall appearance of their blog. 

2. Investing More Time on Optimization

Another most common mistake that I’ve seen bloggers make is that they spend too much time on improving the speeds of their blog. They try to maximize their page speed score and optimize all the elements as much as possible. Sometimes, this even takes up to 6 months! 

Now, I am aware how design and speed can affect the viewership of a blog. I agree that these two problems are genuine and directly affect your blog’s SEO. However, spending months on improving them is not worth it in the beginning.

As a beginner blogger, your primary focus should be creating good content consistently. Thus, to solve these important issues, I have designed a Blogging Course for you! Interested to know what it is? Keep reading to find out.
