So my sister recommended that WordPress was doing a blogging 101 course this month, so I thought hey I can do that too.. just not on WordPress. So here is the first topic; introducing yourself – or in my case, working out what I want to achieve this year with this blog. So below are a few things I’ve thought about in this post, I actually think this is a good idea because the other day I wrote a long list of blogging tips, and top of my 2015 to do list was “improve my blog”. I mean ideally it was be so sweet to earn money from that, but I know it takes a whole lot of effort to get people to read what you’re saying before anyone wants to advertise on your site.
To answer the questions below:
I’m blogging because I like to share my photographs and recommendations for things to do and places to see, be this in London, around the UK and in other countries too. I love to write about mostly places I’ve been and whether or not they were good, and worth visiting too, and I will no doubt continue this into 2015.
I’d love to connect with more people, in particular those who are looking for places to eat / drink and things to do in London. The other day I was looking for restaurants to visit, so something like a blog is ideal for people to find reasonably priced spots in the city.
Success for me will be achieved by increased site views, and consistently too. I’ve improved my blog so people can sign up for updates via email too, I think it’s important to ensure people can access content as easily as possible, and in all formats.
The plan is to post more regularly and ensure I am making the most of social media sites to promote my blog. I want to read more blogs of other people’s to connect with them and learn from their successes.
