I love blogging

I set out to start a blog to help people by writing articles that may inspire or help people in some. It could be giving them advice it could be pointing to someone else's work whom I admire; it could be from anywhere as long as I was helping.

blogObviously I wanted to make some money as well so I monetized the site from the very beginning in order to make it easier as I went along. I use mainly Google adsense and as I learn more I will no doubt use other revenue streams as well.

I have been live with this blog exactly 19 days and do you want to know how much I have made in those 19 days. £0.00, absolutely nothing, not a sniff of a pound not a sniff of a dollar.

Do you want to know how much traffic I have had to my site in those 19 days about 30 visitors, probably looking to spam.

Yes I have a lot to learn about getting my site known, I have a lot to learn about the technologies of making money blogging but £0.00 and 30 visitors is a bit miserable.

Do you know what? I am ecstatic. I have learned so much in the past 19 days about lots of things. The main things I have learned are:

1. Setting up a WordPress blog
2. CSS
3. A tiny bit of PHP
4. Other blogs and how they help
5. The psychology of blogging
6. How Google works
7. Advertisers

And so much more. I love getting up at 5.30am every morning just to write another article. I love trying to think articles. I love searching for articles that will help my readers (all 30 of them), I love writing (my lifetime goal is to write a book but this is the next best thing), I love the anticipation of getting more readers, I love looking at my Technorati ranking (which is currently 1,453, 418, which is pretty shite but I still love it). I just love it.

I wrote an article about starting a new habit which I have used myself and it gave me motivation to try other things, stopping sweets, writing every day.

Can you tell I love blogging. I will no doubt get better and more savvy and the money and visitors will come but just now I am loving it.
