20 Years Of Blogging : From Sporadic Posts On Blogspot To Daily Blogs On WordPress

How did you get started blogging? Tell your readers about the day you decided to become a blogger.

Way back in time, in the wonderful year of 2001 I started going to internet cafes a lot and spending a few hours each week browsing the internet and I started reading a few blogs. The blogs I read kept me entertained and I was finding myself spending more and more time reading them. Having kept and maintained personal journals from the age of 15, which was way back in 1991, I wanted to create a blog of my own soon.

By October of 2002 I had decided to create one even if it was sporadically at first that I could enter posts. Moving to a new city back in July of that year also meant that I would have new experiences to share as I was living on my own in a lodge. And initially it was more like updates of what I did, how the work was going, how living on a very tiny budget was like and how I was basically getting along. I would come back home most weekends so that was usually the time that I would find time to enter a few lines of a post on my blog.

l like blogging as it brings out my creative side. It is an outlet and it is I also try to be as honest as I can on my blog. I don’t hold back – well maybe I might tone down the language a bit, even though I have thrown in a few choice words many times. Yet it is still very tame when I compare it with what I say when I get angry or think. I also try to post as much positive things as I can and keep it varied. It’s like a release from the day to day life and a way that I also let my frustration out.

If I didn’t blog and use it as a therapy for myself, I might actually go a bit angry and nuts at things that happen to and around me along the week. Even sometimes at home, when I get pissed off because of family, even if I may not blog about that exact incident, I do find that blogging keeps me from acting out.

Tips To Become Consistent With Your Blog

How do you become consistent with your blog life? The truth about consistency in blogging life.

It’s way too easy to let your blogging routine slide. You most likely began with good intentions to blog every week or every day or whatever you had decided and now you find the calendar empty for several weeks. Consistent blogging is the key to successful blogging. Most successful bloggers are consistent with their blogging. Now even though I know that blogging consistently is a big struggle for A LOT bloggers, there are some tips that you can use to make it more consistent.

STEP 1: DECIDE WHAT IS ‘CONSISTANT’ FOR YOU:

Not everyone wants to do daily blogging and multiple posts like me or some other folks. Some people may only want to post a couple of times a week or once a week or every alternate day. Decided on your time table. I have a friend who plans 3 blogs posts a week – Monday, Wednesday & Friday and takes the weekend off for her family & pets. You decide the schedule and then stick to it so your readers also get to see when to expect new posts.

STEP 2: MAKE A COMMITMENT AND STICK TO IT

Once your schedule is set then make sure you stick to it. Take some time out each week to plan your posts and prepare bullet points as you go along just so you don’t lose track of what you want it to contain. Actually write that commitment down and put it somewhere you will see often
 then calendarize  it too! Why does making a commitment and writing it down matter so much? Because making a written commitment increases your likelihood of following through by more than 100%.

STEP 3: MAKE A CONTENT CALENDAR

If you want to blog consistently, and especially if you have very little time to blog, you should never put yourself in a position where you have to spend the first chunk of your precious blogging time working out what to blog about. The best way to make sure you always know exactly what to blog about each week is to create a content calendar. A content calendar does not have to be fancy
 it’s simply a list of what topics you plan to blog about and on which days.

STEP 4: US BLOG PROMPTS FROM VARIOUS WEBSITE

When you are stuck for content a sure shot way to get the juices flowing are blog prompts.

Four Perks & Benefits Of Blogging & Maintaining A Blog

1. Blogging helps you make passive income

One of the BIGGEST benefits of blogging is that it helps you with passive income. That means you can make money even while you sleep. Of course, you will need to work upfront to earn passive income from your blog. But once you build up a following and traffic to your blog, you can start making money passively. There are a few ways to earn passive income from blogging. You can use affiliate marketing, sell products, or even place ads on your blog.

2. Helps you network with others

Networking is one of the most important skills you can build in life. Networking is all about building relationships with others. When you network with others, you create a web of contacts that can provide you with information, advice, and opportunities. Networking can help you find mentors, friends, and even business partners. It also allows you to learn from others and share your own experiences. When you network with others, it’s essential to be genuine and authentic. People are more likely to trust and respect someone honest about who they are and what they do. Here’s where blogging comes into play as a blog helps you build trust online.

3. Blogging can be fun

It’s no secret that most people don’t enjoy their jobs. It’s important to remember that your job doesn’t have to be a source of misery. There are many things you can do to make your work-life more enjoyable. One better way is to start your blog. It can be a lot of fun. You can share your thoughts and ideas or create content on any topic you enjoy. You’ll love writing more once you start getting comments from other readers. Once you start generating some money from blogging, you’ll want to work even harder. All in all, blogging can be a fun job. It can also be a side hustle if you work consistently.

4. Blogging can lead you to lucrative job offers

In today’s job market, most companies and startups are looking for people who have a strong online presence. Unfortunately, many job seekers have the same qualifications and experience. So how can you make yourself more attractive to potential employers? One way is to start a blog. If you have a solid presence online, you’ll have a significant competitive advantage in the job market. Many companies are now looking for candidates with strong written communications skills and deep knowledge of social media.

One way to demonstrate these qualities is by maintaining a blog. A blog is an effective platform for sharing your ideas and showing your writing skills. Not just that, a blog can help you to build a network of contacts and followers. If you’re ever searching for a new job, these contacts can be PRICELESS in helping you to land a job.

Ever Faced A Technical Problem With Your Website? How Did You Resolve It?

I’ve been maintaining this website/blog since 2007 and I’ve only had a problem once. All this time and just one issue that was caused by WordPress. A few days ago, I think it was last Wednesday, I woke up and found that several of my posts were missing and each month was only showing 2-3 blog posts and mostly the Images that I post from time to time, without much words in it. All the categories were removed and it showed by default that all posts were in the Uncategorised list but even that count was not showing up.

Not only that I couldn’t log in to my account. It refused to accept my user id and email id and password. I also couldn’t reset my password since it refused to accept my user id and email id that is associated with the account. I was devastated for a while but then contacted my Website server’s support team and the first guy wasn’t very helpful but the second time I tried, the guy was able to identify that it was a WordPress related issue. So he used the most recent backup to fix the issue – I only lost a week’s worth of blog posts – and I could finally log in.

I then changed my password and then checked my blog. Over the next couple of days I rewrote the posts that I had lost, just to ensure that the dates would match up. I didn’t like having these huge gaps in between posts. Then a couple of days later I upgraded WordPress to the latest version, which had just been released earlier this month. Things seem to be fine now.

5 Big Reasons You Should Pick WordPress

1. WordPress is Free as in Freedom

WordPress is free software. It means you are free to download, install, use and modify it to match your needs. You can use it to create any kind of website. To learn more, see our article about why WordPress is free. While the WordPress software itself is free, you do need a domain name and web hosting to install it. A domain name is the address of your website on the internet. This is what your users type in their browser’s address bar to access your website (for example, wpbeginner.com). Web hosting is like your website’s house where all your website files are stored.

2. WordPress Is Easy to Use

Despite being the most flexible and powerful platform, WordPress is quite easy to use for beginners. It comes with a simple dashboard with different menu options listed in the sidebar. You can easily create posts and pages, customize your website design, add navigation menus, and more. WordPress makes it easy for absolute beginners to maintain their own websites without any technical hiccups.

3. WordPress Is Completely Customizable

Most folks using WordPress are neither web designers nor programmers. As a matter of fact, most people start using WordPress without any prior knowledge of designing websites. For non-tech savvy folks, WordPress is the perfect solution because there are thousands of free website templates (themes) that you can choose from. There is a perfect WordPress theme for just about every kind of website (whether it’s a blog, business site, or an online store). WordPress themes are easy to customize because a lot of them come with their own options panel allowing you to change colors, upload your logo, change the background, create beautiful sliders, and truly customize it to your needs without writing any code at all.

4. WordPress Is Safe and Secure

WordPress is developed with security in mind, and it is a very safe and secure platform to run a website. However, you can still do a lot to make your website even more secure from hackers, malware, and other dangers.

5. What Kinds of Websites Can You Create With WordPress?

WordPress can be used in many different ways, from simple websites to eCommerce marketplaces and anything in between.

The following are just a few examples of different kinds of websites you can make with WordPress.

  • Start a blog
  • Make a business website
  • Start an online store
  • Build a membership website
  • Sell online courses

5 Tried & Tested Ways To Promote Your Blog

Share your blog on social media : This is likely not your first time hearing about social media promotion. Sharing your blog post on social media will always be one of the best ways to promote your content. Of course, you’ll want to take the time to cultivate a strong social media presence, and ensure you aren’t posting swipe-up links to your content daily. Instead, try creating a diverse social media content calendar with a variety of engaging posts, and have 3-4 a month drive traffic to a new or relevant blog post.Even if a social media post doesn’t explicitly mention a blog post, you can still aim to increase followers on your social media accounts, and over time, those followers will become naturally curious and take a look at your blog for themselves. Additionally, try leveraging a social media automation tool that helps you share and manage all your social media accounts from one dashboard.

Answer questions on Quora : Quora is one of the best platforms for engaging with people that might be interested in topics you discuss on your blog. And, as a new blogger, Quora can be a great promotion opportunity. Create a Quora account and make it a daily obligation to go on Quora and answer questions relating to your niche. Don’t simply copy-and-paste your blog URL into each Quora answer, though, which can come across as spammy and might even get you blocked on Quora. Instead, try to genuinely help Quora users with useful answers, and simply keep the URL of your blog on your profile for users to find on their own if they’d like.

Post on subreddits: Subreddits on Reddit are another good place for sharing your knowledge with a ready audience looking for more information on a topic. Just like Quora, Subreddits are topics in which you can join and add to the conversation. This is another way of sharing your post and building your influence.

Guest post on popular blogs : Guest posting is one of the oldest marketing techniques around, and it’s still as effective as ever. Guest posting requires you to reach out to similar blogs in your niche and then pitch ideas for them to publish to their blog. This is a win-win for the two parties involved — it provides a high-quality, unique piece of content for the blog host, while giving you a backlink to your own website.However, guest blogging isn’t easy and requires a lot of work. Other than sending outreach emails to the bloggers in your niche, you also need to take the time to craft high-quality guest blog posts. To do this on a larger scale, you will need to hire freelance writers that can help you write the blog post while you conduct the outreach process.

Network on related or similar blogs : Many bloggers have neglected to leave a comment on other blogs simply because they believe it won’t affect their SEO rankings. And yes — they’re right, it won’t. But the benefits of leaving a comment on another, related blog are still worthwhile. Leaving a comment on another blog can help you get on the radar of other bloggers in your industry, and begin cultivating relationships within your community. While admittedly small, this is still a potential avenue for getting your name out there without spending money or sacrificing too much time.

The Impact That Blogging Has Had On My Life.

Describe the impact that blogging has had on your life.

Well, for one I can easily go back in time when I want to and read about a thought or an idea or something that happened. Atleast since 2002. 20 years. Most of the eventful things that has happened in my life plus a lot of insignificant stuff, is easily available for me to read and relive when I just go back and search for it or go to particular dates back in the year I am looking at.

Other that I would also say that the money I have made, some nice chunk of change, has made things quite easier for me. I bought two mobile phones, the ones that I use now, my current laptop, my computer chair, a lot of dvds and some Funko pops and even let me take a couple of 3 to 4 day holidays without having to dip into my salary money. That was an awesome feeling. But it hasn’t lasted and now I am lucky if I can make Rs.6000 a month from my blog. But the dream is still there that I can just make a bunch of money every month off my blog.

Other than that, I think that it has improved my communication skills a bit and my writing. It has definitely made me search for more things online so I can create a few blog posts about things and that increased my knowledge and awareness.

A Blogger’s Dreams

Write about blogging full-time. If you aren’t already a full-time blogger, is it something you’d ever aspire to do?

That is the dream. To make a lot of money off my writing and my blog and to quit my job as a result of that.  I do not have the luxury of making a proper living off the earnings that I make on this blog. In fact that has almost dried up to just a trickle. So much so that now I think it’s always gonna be this way. I was getting a lot of money at one point. From the end of 2018 till late 2020, I was getting quite a nice chunk of money for sponsored posts.

That money gave me the freedom to spend some money on myself. I bought two mobile phones, the ones that I use now, my current laptop, my computer chair, a lot of dvds and some Funko pops and even let me take a couple of 3 to 4 day holidays without having to dip into my salary money. That was an awesome feeling. But it hasn’t lasted and now I am lucky if I can make Rs.6000 a month from my blog. But the dream is still there that I can just make a bunch of money every month off my blog.

So I hope that does happen and I can live in ease and have all my needs & my family’s needs plus a lot of luxuries met just because I maintain a blog and write on a daily basis. Someday!

Outline Your Writing Process

Outline your writing process. What steps do you follow when writing a blog post?

Ok. I don’t really have a schedule for releasing or publishing blog posts. on most days, I try to post one post in the hours before lunch (which is 1:30 pm for me) usually between 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. I usually will thought of a topic by the end of breakfast and will start to check on sources by then. So the one hour slot of 11:30 am to 12:30 pm is great for me to publish that first post. A second post is usually done around dinner time or slightly after dinner. But on weekends and days off it can vary. Usually I just spend about 90 minutes or close to 2 hours a day looking at what topics I want to write about and maybe an image or 2 to go along with it.

I do not really keep a planner and I honestly do not recommend keeping one yourself. Unless you are planning to write about certain topics that you get paid to do – in that case by all means, do keep a planner with notes or bulletpoints jotted down on a small notepad/scribblepad or even on Word/Notepad on your own pc/laptop. What I usually do is, if I get a few ideas about the topics that I want to blog about, I create them on WordPress and save them as drafts because I know that I will come back to them later. This way I don’t forget said topics and also I have my set of blog posts all mapped out for the next couple of days.

When you want to blog but you are unable to come up with a topic – is to use blog prompts. Simple as that! Just go to Google and search for blog prompts. If you want specific topic prompts then search for “blog prompts for (insert the topic here)”. What I have been doing is to search for “blog prompts for (insert the month we are in at the moment)” to get some specific topics for the month. There are several website and bloggers who share a bunch of prompts on a monthly basis and hence it is easy for us to find a topic to inspire us. If you do select one of them, please do link back to the blogger or website in return.

Six Reasons Why WordPress Is The Best Platform For Your Blog

1. You Can Use WordPress for All Types of Projects

You might have heard that WordPress is a blogging platform. That’s not technically false, but the way the CMS is built also means you can use it for all sorts of projects. For example, you can use WordPress to grow your business, build virtual classrooms, create forums, run social media platforms, or power pretty much any other type of project you can imagine. If you own a small business, you can even set up an online store with WordPress and the WooCommerce plugin.

2. Learning How to Use WordPress Is Simple

WordPress is pretty easy to pick up, even if you’ve never dealt with a CMS or built websites before. Beginners are welcome! To get started, all you have to do is select a theme, maybe install a plugin or two, and then jump right into creating pages and other content. However, the great thing about WordPress is that there are always more ways you can customize the platform. Once you get the hang of it, you can start implementing more advanced functionality to gain full control over how your site looks. Even for experienced web developers, WordPress has plenty to offer. It provides a foundation you can iterate on more quickly, which is far more efficient than trying to build a site from scratch.

3. Themes and Plugins Give You Full Control Over Your Website

If you’re new to WordPress, you may not be familiar with the concept of plugins and themes. Let’s break down what both of them are:

  1. Themes: These are templates you can use on your website to alter its basic design.
  2. Plugins: These add new features and functionality to your site.

As we mentioned before, there are thousands of plugins and themes (both free and premium) available for WordPress. In most cases, you’ll find there are excellent free options for whatever style of features you want to implement on your site. That is in stark contrast with other CMSs, where some of the best ‘extras’ lie behind paywalls.

4. WordPress Websites Are Easy to Maintain

One thing you may not be aware of if you’ve never set up a website before is that they require a bit of maintenance work. With WordPress in particular, you have to stay on top of the following:

  • Updating the CMS as new versions come out
  • Updating your plugins and themes whenever you have the option to
  • Managing your site’s comments (if you choose to enable them)
  • Ensuring that your website is fully optimized and secure
  • Backing up your site often

In practice, none of those tasks should take up too much of your time individually. However, if you want to save time, you can always opt for a managed hosting service. Managed hosting plans get their name because your provider will take care of a lot of maintenance tasks for you.

5. You Can Optimize Your Website for Search Engines

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is all about making sure your website gets the traffic it deserves from the likes of Google, Bing, etc. There are a lot of things you can do to work on your site’s SEO. However, depending on which platform you use, optimizing your content for search engine results can either be simple or an uphill battle. With WordPress, you get access to a lot of powerful SEO plugins, such as Yoast SEO, All in One SEO Pack, The SEO Framework, and more.

6.  You Own Your Website and Its Content

WordPress is what’s called a “self-hosted” CMS. That means you can take the software and set it up on any server you want to use to power your website. The advantage of this approach is that you’re not tied to a single hosting platform. With a hosted platform, the provider can always suspend your account for one reason or another. With WordPress, on the other hand, you can switch hosts at any time. You can also make any changes you want to the CMS, and you have full ownership of all the content you create.

How Do You Overcome Writer’s Block?

Even the best writers struggle with creative block. Help out your readers by sharing with them some of your personal favorite strategies for getting back into the rhythm of writing.

So one of the easiest methods to overcome writer’s block – when you want to blog but you are unable to come up with a topic – is to use blog prompts. Simple as that! Just go to Google and search for blog prompts. If you want specific topic prompts then search for “blog prompts for (insert the topic here)”. What I have been doing is to search for “blog prompts for (insert the month we are in at the moment)” to get some specific topics for the month.

There are several website and bloggers who share a bunch of prompts on a monthly basis and hence it is easy for us to find a topic to inspire us. If you do select one of them, please do link back to the blogger or website in return.

Your Blog Content Schedule + Tips

So I don’t really have a schedule for releasing or publishing blog posts. I do it far too often and many times in a day to actually worry about creating a schedule. But first let’s see why experts say you should create a blogging schedule:

Once you’ve created your blog and chosen your topics to write awesome blog posts, the next step is to define a blog schedule that will help you publish those awesome blog posts super consistently to increase your:

  • Social media shares
  • Social media subscribers
  • Traffic
  • Newsletter subscribers
  • Customer conversions

Chances are, you’re looking to create a blog schedule because you’ve heard publishing consistent content can help you grow your blog. It’s true! Actually, folks who publish consistent content get as much as 30% more traffic for every post they publish.

Having said that on most days, I try to post one post in the hours before lunch (which is 1:30 pm for me) usually between 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. I usually will thought of a topic by the end of breakfast and will start to check on sources by then. So the one hour slot of 11:30 am to 12:30 pm is great for me to publish that first post. A second post is usually done around dinner time or slightly after dinner. But on weekends and days off it can vary.

As for tips, I will say that when you are not writing a post look for prompts or topics that you want to write about. Each week save atleast 5 to 6 of them and schedule them in your drafts. That makes it easier to remember that you have planned to write about them in the coming days. Select your resources and links to other pages and then when it comes to posting, you are almost all set.

What Are Your Favorite Things About Blogging?

What are your favorite things about blogging?

Hmmm, everything? I like it as it brings out my creative side. It is an outlet and it is I also try to be as honest as I can on my blog. I don’t hold back – well maybe I might tone down the language a bit, even though I have thrown in a few choice words many times. Yet it is still very tame when I compare it with what I say when I get angry or think. I also try to post as much positive things as I can and keep it varied. It’s like a release from the day to day life and a way that I also let my frustration out.

Even sometimes at home, when I get pissed off because of family, even if I may not blog about that exact incident, I do find that blogging keeps me from acting out.

Sometimes that is more than enough and sometimes it’s not but it is akin to therapy. Another thing I learned is that this hobby of mine can and has made me a lot of money. When what you do during the downtime and as a hobby makes you a bunch of extra cash on the side which you can use to buy some things that you have been eyeing but maybe couldn’t buy at the time until you save some money, it is an awesome feeling. It’s a feeling that is so sweet that you cannot but be proud of yourself a little bit. Ok, I lie! It’s more like you cannot but be proud of yourself a lot.

When I first started blogging, way back in 2002 and on a different blog than this, it was mainly because I had made the move from my hometown to Calicut and I thought it was a good way to capture my thoughts, ideas and what I was going through and events that happen to me living alone in a new city. But over the years I have realized that I am blogging more for me than anyone else.

Do You Have Any General Blogging Tips And Advice?


Write for yourself first : Write for yourself first & foremost. Ignore the fact that anyone else will read what you write; just focus on your thoughts, ideas, opinions and figure out how to put those into words. Write it and they will come.

Understand your audience : Understanding your audience better means you’ll have a better idea of what blog content will resonate with them, which is a good start when you get to writing blog posts. A great technique for doing this is to simply ask your readers first on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn with an engaging quote. If people respond well to it, than this is probably a great topic to write about. An example for this comes from Andrew Chen who famously “tests” his blogpost ideas on Twitter first.

Love your existing readers : Focusing on your readers is a great way to get to know them better. Love the readers you already have. A lot of bloggers get quite obsessed with finding new readers – to the point that they ignore the ones they already have. Yes – do try to find new readers but spend time each day showing your current readers that you value them too and you’ll find that they will help you grow your blog.

Be true to your voice : Stay true to yourself and your voice. People don’t care to follow sites so much as they care to follow people. Writing isn’t about picking the right topic; it’s about finding the right voice. What matters, what readers really resonate with, isn’t so much what you say, but how.

Be consistent : Consistency is one of the most important things that bloggers tend to forget. It’s much easier to lose your traffic than it is to build it up, so make sure you consistently blog. Over a two-month span, businesses that published blog entries on a regular basis (more than once a week) added subscribers over twice as fast as those companies that added content once a month.

This Is A Good Time To Blog

Do you have a job, full time or otherwise and blog? How do you manage your time to allow you to blog? I’m sure others would appreciate a post full of pointers and tips.

Yes ofcourse. I do not have the luxury of making a proper living off the earnings that I make on this blog. In fact that has almost dried up to just a trickle. Back in late November of 2018 I started getting a lot of requests for sponsored posts. I started making a bunch of money off the posts that I was getting sent or, in some other cases, getting asked to write on a subject and insert said company/businesses links in the post. Either way is fine with me as long as they pay me.

So, I was able to spend money on a bunch of stuff but since mid 2021 it has all but dried up. I get some from one agency every month and my usual ones, who used to send me a lot of stuff in 2019 all the way up to end of 2020, now sends me stuff once in a while. That is never enough to sustain any kind of lifestyle. It currently just lets me spend some money on a few things, not too expensive, that I might need on a monthly basis. Like maybe a shirt or some beer or an import dvd set or two some novels. Or maybe a few beers. That’s about it.

So my full time job is what I use to feed my family (dad & mom) & pay the bills and have some left over for some fun. When I am not working I tend to spend a lot of time online. I make sure that I have enough time to create 1-3 posts, which includes sponsored ones as well as whatever I want to share. Sometimes even images and videos. I just do. Since I do not have a social life anymore. LOL!

Time Spent Online Running Your Blog

Well the prompt asked how much time I spend online for running my blog. Well, there is no straight, easy answer for this and most bloggers. As I have a full time job and this is just a side thing (I do not make much money out of this blog anymore but did for a while) I do not spend that much time to plan out things and usually just post whatever I am interested in or something that I like or whatever is in the news that I feel like I should write about (like the death of a celebrity).

Almost on a daily basis, I also do check out the various blog prompts available by just giving a google search for prompts for the month and check them out. A lot of them are just keywords or whatever America deems the day to be (National butt plug day or whatever) and not real prompts. A lot of them are run by women and hence they have either women-centric or makeup / clothing stuff which I do not get into, ofcourse, being a guy. But there are some blogs that do have really worthwhile blog prompts and I use them and also leave a link towards their prompt page & blog url. It’s the least I can do.

So usually I just spend about 90 minutes or close to 2 hours a day looking at what topics I want to write about and maybe an image or 2 to go along with it. Sometimes it is the image that takes the most time as at times I can get rather picky on which image I want to have on the blog post. Some take like 5 minutes to select like in this post and others like this post a few days ago can take ages for me to decide. If I made a lot more money from this blog and it was my main source of income then I would probably spend a lot more time, like 5 to 6 hours a day on it.
