Many bloggers, including myself at one time, were so eager to break into the big league. You know, tons of traffic, loads of users, grand reputation. But I soon came to realise that one has to crawl before one can run.
My blog just was not mature enough. I was still green at blogging. I was learning a lot. Not only in the blogging world, but in the world of programming and development as well.
The key here is growth. I suppose this is cliché’, but one has to learn to crawl first, before one can walk, before one can run.
That is so true. There I was expecting to break through the pro’s with my blog and all of 20-25 posts. Where others have 1000-2000 posts.
It’s about taking it one day at a time, or one post at a time. Building up your material while at the same time building up your reputation.
Rome was not built in a day. Sorry could not resist that. But seriously, patience and persistence is what will get you and I there.
You and I might not be in the big leagues now, but with that persistent growth and patient building we soon will be.
So how then can you and I grow our blog. Remembering that this will take time, here are a few things that we should be doing.
So don’t despair you will get there.
How are you building and growing your blog? Any more suggestions that you can come up with?
