The journey of my blog

This blog was made in 2014 just out of curiosity to try out every other social networking platform. I never really posted anything until mid-2015. My first post was a poem titled After Shower. I started blogging seriously in 2017 when I started the series called Mulakaatein. Posting once every week made me fall in love with blogging and the rest, as they say, is history.

Advice to new bloggers-

  1. Be a consistent blogger (Though I have terribly failed to be one!)
  2. Interact with other bloggers. Don’t just read posts and like them. Comment, add value, engage in conversations.

    1. Consistency is important for several reasons…

      1. Your readers know when they should be coming here to read from you.

      2. If you post daily for a week and then disappear for two months. And then come back again, it makes no sense.
      I am guilty of doing this for a couple of times. Once I found out one of my regular blogging friends disappeared. Her blog doesn’t show up now. All I can do is read the comments she left on my blog.
      In fact, some of your readers may not remember you.

      3. Once you stop being regular, it’s really to get back. No matter how much I missed blogging earlier this year, the thought of getting back became really stressful to me. It took my months to make myself do it. I would post once a month out of the guilt of owning the blog, but I couldn’t make myself post regularly for a long time.

      And now that I’m writing this, I feel if I ever plan to hibernate again (might have to do so coz of exams), I’ll do it consistently 😂 by reducing the no. of posts per week.

      Lastly, I believe that if you aren’t consistent, you may not be taking it that seriously.

      There can be other reasons too somewhere in the back of my mind but I guess that’s all for now 😝

      1. No.3 is so painfully true. I can attest to that. As far as readership is concerned, I’m not sure that’s the case. Yes, that’s what people say – that you will be forgotten if you don’t post. Maybe. Some people unfollow others when they see you don’t write regularly. I’m quite the opposite. If you stop writing, I still keep you around for when you come back. I always notice. Always remember.

        As much as I’d like to think that people wake up in the morning and say: “Oh, today is Monday, there should be a NROP from Goldie this morning,” I don’t think that’s the case.

      2. I have the tendency to unfollow if peole aren’t posting for over 6 months (and I never really got to know them as such). But then it depends from person to person. I decided to not unfollow some in hopes that they may come back.

        There are some people for whose posts I wait. Like your blogging tips, Linda’s SoCS prompts, Cyranny’s quickies among others.. Every Fri, I am waiting for Linda’s prompt, Cyranny has taken a break from quickies for some time and Trina has been there to the rescue. But yes, I can’t really be waiting for all the posts of all the bloggers I follow. That would mean spending much more time here and I don’t have that.

      3. This is really good advice for someone who is just starting out. I been posting consistent ever since I started. So, far it’s going good. Consistency is definitely key to blogging and anything you do in life. You will then get the response that want if you dont give up on it.

      4. Exactly! The effort needs to be constant if you need results. And when bloggers like you are blogging for a cause, it is really important.

    1. My pleasure Jenny.
      I feel the best way to know if you’re reaching out to others is to engage in conversations.

  1. Thank you for the nomination Saumya. I have the same troubles. Getting back to blogging wasn’t easy. I used to be such a regular blogger and now I find hard to find time to do this. But there is always this fear am I losing interest in things I liked to do. I am trying hard. Lets see. Once again, thanks for the nomination!
