My 1st Year Blogging
One year ago I published my 1st post on my blog after I had deleted the entire blog a couple of weeks earlier. I had only written 3 or 4 posts previous to deleting it and managed to retrieve them. I did repost these posts and back dated them.
It is hard to believe that I have been doing this for a year.
My Year In A SnapShot
I think I have come a long way over this past year.
A year ago…
my alexa ranking was in the millions or maybe the billions
I did not know any other bloggers
I had no idea how to comment on other bloggers posts
I did not know how to write a post as I had never written on before
I don’t think I had a Google page rank
I am sure there are many other things I could say but can not think of them
My alexa ranking is 176,801 and has been as low as 132,000 or so.
I have many Blogging Buddies and am so glad that I have met them all. Many of my Blogging Buddies I consider my friends.
I know people all over the world and communicate with them on a daily basis.
I have written lots of comments and I figured out that writing a comment is not a hard thing to do
I have written 50 posts. My goal was 1 a week and I have come close to that.
My Google page rank is 2
This has been a great year. I feel like I have accomplished the goals that I set out.
Things I Have Learned
Back up my blog all of the time. I have only been blogging for about 3 weeks when in one click of the mouse I managed to delete my entire blog and it was not backed up.
Ask for help when I can not figure out how to do something instead of spending countless hours trying to figure it out on my own. Other bloggers tend to be very giving and helpful. I love running things that I can not figure out past fellow bloggers.
What to do when someone steals my blog content. About 6 months ago I realized that someone had stolen all of my content and it was the only new content on their blog. That was a really a feeling of being invaded.
Set goals and work until I have achieved them. I have jumped around in the past and that got me no where.
I am sure there are many more things I have learned but I will just stop there.
In Year Two I want to continue to blog and meet new people. I have fallen down lately on my commenting and I really miss doing that.
I want to publish my 1st product. This is going to be a membership site about Blog Security. I am really excited about getting this product up and running.
I will continue to write one post a week when ever possible.
Thank you to all of my Blogging Buddies who have come to my blog over the past year and commented.
Thank you to all of my readers who do not comment but are faithful to visit my blog and read what I am writing.
I look forward to this next year and everything that it will bring with it.
