What I've Learned in My First 6 Weeks of Blogging

Happy Monday! This week's post is about what I have learned in my first few weeks of blogging.  I have a very long way to go but I wanted to share a few key points that I've taken away from starting The Kelley Log. I hope you find this helpful.





Be Yourself

It is so inspiring to look around for blog ideas, but ultimately your blog is yours. It should be a reflection of yourself whatever your niche may be. I've learned that content flows so much easier and blogging almost becomes second nature when you put in the effort to be you.


Stick to What You Know

Previously I mentioned your niche. Stick to what you know and love. It is easy to veer off on tangents in order to create content, but ultimately you're responsible for what your blog is saying. It is very enjoyable to read on topics that someone is knowledgable about. That is how you attract an authentic audience.


Draw Attention to Your Points

Some people are readers and some are very appealed to visuals. It is a part of appealing to your audience. Use photos when you can as well as highlight with bold/colored text or bullet points. This way you can satisfy the type of "learner" your visitor is.


Be Patient

Blogging is not an overnight success. Before starting my blog I was told that if you're in it for the money or exposure then this is not for you. It is a long process that can turn into something successful, but ultimately that should not be your first goal. Enjoy the journey or writing and creating content. Who knows where you'll end up!



Thanks so much for reading and have a great week!
