How long have you been blogging?

I’m interested to see other peoples’ responses to this question. I’ve been blogging for a year and nine months with a three month break in between that time. It’s amazing that that I didn’t realize that it’s been that long. I know I’m still a rookie that has much to learn, but it feels like I’ve been blogging for awhile. I remember when my friend and I decided to become bloggers. We had the talk about creating our own future and creating something that is ours. I was blogging my thoughts and I also posted helpful articles to other piano teachers. Time has flown by, and I’m so happy I took that leap to start blogging almost two years ago.

I didn’t actually start taking blogging seriously until about two weeks ago. After my long hiatus, I decided to jump into blogging almost full time. I’ve spent hours every day pouring all of my free time into my blog. And I am so incredibly happy with the results. When you start to take blogging seriously, you start to see your blog grow. And the growth is huge. I suggest that if you’re not already blogging every day, you must. Blogging every day consistently has grown my audience much more than blogging every other day or once a week. The amount of new content you are publishing is important. It shows that you are updating your blog and you aren’t wishy-washy about blogging. People want to see someone who is going to be around for a long time. And if you are gone every so often, people will leave. And your content is king. If you are creating interesting and new content all the time, your blog will blossom.

It’s funny that whenever I think of blogging, I also think of the characters in the sims game. In the new sims game, you can self-publish books and you can also become a content creator. At first, not many people are reading your content. And when you start posting better content, people start reading. Your writing skill also levels up. It’s awesome to see how your sim progresses through this career type, and becomes more and more popular. Eventually, when you publish enough books or post better content, you start collecting royalties. And these royalties add up to a decent amount every month. Isn’t blogging just like that? We write our blog posts in the hopes that they gain views, and when they do, we collect the royalties. It’s also very enjoyable too. I love blogging and it has changed my life for the better.

I also want to mention that I’ve added more products in my shop with me store! You can check it out here. I’ve added some piano books in there and I’m going to write some reviews about each book to help other people decide which books to purchase. And I’ve added some health/beauty products. I believe every teacher has holy grail products they use every day. Sometimes from the lack of sleep, I’m not able to look my best. My hair is a mess and my face looks like a zombie in the morning. I use these beauty products to hopefully counteract my zombie face. Oh, and I’ve also added essential oils in my shop. I use essential oils for vitality and it’s a great, natural bug-repellant. I’m looking forward to talking more about essential oils in future blog posts. If you use my links, they help to support me and my blog. I would appreciate it very much. Thank you always for reading and I appreciate every one of you.

The take-away from all of this? If you’ve always wanted to start blogging, go for it. Don’t wait! I want to see how long everyone has been blogging. Comment your answers below. And let’s all look forward to many more years of blogging!

  1. Hi, Lia! I have had two blogs ongoing. CaffeinatedMusic.com is my original one from 2008 and has my music director musings as well as my English composition essay demos. My other site is BigBlackDogStudio.com, which I began in 2012 and named for my dog. I get a ton of organic visits to CM for the essays and scholastic paper help, and I rarely remember to update anything over there. It is backlinked to several schools, however, and the essays are deeply entrenched in the plagiarism checkers, so I don’t dare mess it up by shuffling any of the pages or even reformatting the site LOL! BBDS is my goofy Crazy Dog Lady blog that gets little general visitation, so I am experimenting right now with e-commerce ideas using it. Again, just for the sake of the existing SEO and Google entrenchment due to its age, I don’t want to monkey too much with it, but am excited to take the artsy side of my hobbies into the realm where I might be able to earn a living from sales of my graphic designs. That would be awesome. Other than that, I am a music director for churches now for over 35 years, so I love that you are using your piano teaching as the impetus to propel you into finding ways to grow not only your business but to help others along the way. I wish you all kinds of wonderful success!
