The Personal Odyssey of Blogging: Navigating Uncharted Waters

Three years ago, I embarked on a blogging journey that was similar to sailing into an unknown ocean. Little did I realize that the road ahead would be full of challenges, victories, and valuable lessons. As I reflect on my journey, the three key elements to becoming a successful blogger are: dedication, practice, and a willingness to learn.

During the early stages of my blog, I faced obstacles that challenged my resolve. It was a challenge to create engaging content. I was faced with an age-old problem: how do I keep my readers interested and coming back to read more? Deciphering SEO algorithms was also a challenge. These challenges pushed me to learn more, seek knowledge, and refine my craft.

There were also moments of inspiration or insight, which brought a feeling of fulfillment. I still remember how exciting it was to write a blog that connected with readers, and started discussions online with people who shared similar interests. These small victories were beacons of inspiration, which helped me keep going even when uncertainty threatened. has been a constant ally in this journey. The user-friendly WordPress interface was a haven of creativity. It offered a variety of tools that helped me turn my blogging dreams into reality. I was able to customize the design and layout of my website in order to reflect my personal style. They also offered online courses that helped me improve my skills. is a great tool that simplifies technicalities, allowing me to share my stories, thoughts, and insights. Join me as I navigate this constantly changing landscape.

Journey of a blogger

My blogging journey…..

Even though I started blogging two years ago, I am still finding my way around in unknown territories. I have been doing things wrong for two years! I did not have the time to learn the ropes as I was busy writing books. There is so much to learn in blogging. Setting up the website, designing the website, brain storming a suitable name and tagline, uploading the pages, choosing a domain name, are some of the initial hurdles Learning how to write and publish content and learning about SEO are more hurdles to cross.. Learning the art of blogging is practical and hands on, getting wet in the water, falling down and getting up again. No amount of theory will get you there.

I started blogging 2 years ago because I wanted to grow an audience for my books as I am a writer. This journey took me to unchartered territories. Starting from scratch with zero knowledge about blogging was not easy. Blogging is also very time consuming and labour intensive. A firm commitment is required to get you there. A half hearted commitment will not do.

Through this journey, I have learned a lot about blogging. I started with and continued with it. is a good platform to start your blogging journey.
